I had searched the web for a hotel during a business trip to Gettysburg and stumbled upon the Colton Motel. It is in a great location, very centrally located to lots of shops and sites. The people who run the motel are extremely nice and accomodating. I would definitely reccommend this establishment for your next stay.

The Colton was wonderful. Was pleased from the moment we arrived. Andrew and his daughter were very pleasant and easy to joke and talk with. Rooms were very clean, and large. The foo-foo sect might think the rooms are dated, (the bathroom is totally 50's - which I loved!), so let them stay at the foo-foo places, then. Price was... More

The Colton is a nice, little motel that is located right on the edge of the battlefield. It is close enough to walk to town, about four blocks, but far enough to not have to put up with town traffic. There are restaurants, diners and bars close by. The visitor center is only two blocks away, but that will be... More

We only stayed for one night and were pleased. The room was older but clean and comfortable. I have to have a clean bathroom and was not disappointed. The only glitch was that the drain was a little slow and the tub filled up a little. Good for the money, and would go back.

don't expect much and you won't be disappointed! There are no frills but the rooms are clean, small tv, the bathroom could have used a little work. Overall, it was a fine place to stay for $45 per night. My complaints would be regarding the "continental breakfast" is free coffee in the motel office starting at 8 am. Also, the... More

I have stayed at the Colton Motel several times over the past 5 yrs while leading field trips across the Gettysburg Battlefield, and think it is an ideal place to stay while doing so. Phoning ahead early in the year is the best way to insure that you get hte dates you want, but once in, their arrangements are efficient... More

When I arrived at the Colton Motel, I was a bit skeptical at first, because it is an older motel (kind of like the ones we stayed at when we were younger), the place is deceiving and yet comfortable and quaint. I have traveled all over the country and stayed in just about every chain on the continent and all... More

My nephew said if we come back we should stay there again. It is not fancy but for convienience and price... More

I just wanted to say what a comfortable time I had staying at the Colton Motel. The management was very friendly, and you get the feeling that he honestly wants to make your stay as comfortable as possible. He is a genuine guy, who treats people with respect, and is very knowledgeable about the area and it's history. The room... More
