After spending the nights in Maryland at a more expensive, but awful hotel; we we approached the Colton with some trepidation. We were very pleased with the rooms. The staff were great, the rooms were nice, and the price was much less than a third of what we had paid the night before in Maryland. The location couldn't be better....

I needed a cheap place to stay for the night and some of the reviews scared me. But in reality it is just an older motel. It has the old building smell and the bathroom hasn't been updated in a long time. If you are looking for something fancy or for a stay of more than two days, you'll probably...

I love the Colton inn for a couple of reasons. Mainly because I've had a room or 2 that had what I thought to be paranormal activity (it didn't happen on every stay) and the location. It's right across the street from the cemetery, just a mile or so from the Battlefield, and the overall location as in walking distance...

My mom and I were on a family history trip to central PA and decided to get in a little site seeing. As we were on a fairly tight budget, a review of the hotels in the Gettysburg area produced a short list, the Colton being one of them. We stayed for three nights. The motel is centrally located within...

We arrived here late in the evening. We chose The Colton straight off our satnav after spending the whole day touring the battlefield. I guess we just got lucky as the room rate was very reasonable indeed. The guy who checked us in was very efficiant and helpful. As there were two beds we decided to have one each, a...

Just returned from two night visiit to Gettysburg. As previously reviewed the Colton Motel is an older motor lodge type motel. It was clean, but a bit ragged around the edges. That was OK with us because we only spent the nights there and were away the rest of the day. Only difficulty we had was with stopped up bathroom...

My sister and I stayed here for 2 nights in August. Decided to take a chance based on reviews. We were simply looking for a place to sleep after running around all day.

I did not expect anything luxurious but I was definately disappointed. It was not filthy but it wasn't very clean either. I had booked the room by phone and when I checked in the clerk ran my room charge at a higher rate than I had already been given. When I showed him my confirmation that I had printed from...
