Two other friends & myself had the pleasure of staying here... Normally I have a very hard time falling asleep while traveling but I had NO ISSUES falling asleep here! We were in room 20.. Two very comfortable queen size beds that were clean, no holes anywhere, air conditioner, clean towels... OK, so the shower doesn't glisten like diamonds but...

We came to Gettysburg to see alot of the history behind our country and were very interested in seeing where the Civil War took place. The Colton was picked over the other motels in the area, mainly due to price and the good reviews we had read. Upon arrival at the Colton, we were completely surprised at the condition of...

My fiancee and I stayed at the Colton Motel from July 14th-16th, 2008. I have to say that I was a bit leery, given some of the recent reviews here on TripAdvisor. However, I must say that I was more than pleased with everything during our visit. For starters, the rooms are quite clean. For an older motel, I expected...

We stayed at the Colton Motel from July 21st - 23rd, 2008. The motel was really a nice relaxing place to come back from a long day in historical Gettysburg. The room we stayed in was bigger than we imagined. Although it seemed the pool had to much chlorine, we enjoyed ourselves both nights there. The motel is very close...

My family enjoyed staying at the Colton Motel. It's very clean and the people running it are friendly. It doesn't hurt that it's within walking distance of most attractions. If we go back to Gettysburg we will definitely stay there again.

I decided to stay here based on the favorable reviews I'd seen. I have to say I was disappointed. It's a very "basic" motel, and although overall the room was reasonably clean, the bedcover looked like it hadn't been washed in a while. The bathroom window was broken. Amenities were minimal -- there weren't even any cups in the room!...

I stayed at this motel in 1999 while on a sight-seeing trip to Gettysburg. It was "bare bones" but clean and very affordable. Since I am a civil war buff, I decided to pay another visit to Gettysburg and thought I'd stay at the Colton again. This time, they had attempted to "renovate" the room I was given. It was...

We selected this hotel after consulting with Trip Advisor. I have checked with Trip Advisor prior to booking every hotel we have stayed in the past month. Generally, the reviews are right on, but this one was misleading. Even though the price was good, the room was not well maintained and felt dirty (the bathroom sink wouldn't drain and the...

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.
