“Quaint Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

This is a really nice place, very convenient downtown location and close to the battlefields and all the sights. Great service with little extras like breakfast in your room every day and a nice platter of goodies on arrival. Staff very friendly and helpful. Small hotel, casual atmosphere. The room was actually a suite, including stove, refrig, separate bedroom, dining table. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask if every room is a suite.

I completed my 9th stay at the James Gettys in January 2012. Wha can I stay - except that you cannot improve PERFECTION. Special tanks to Stephanie and all the staff for making my stay as WONDERFUL as ever. Other hotels and B & s in Gettysburg wold do well to emulate the HIGHEST level of service as exhibited by Stephanie & the staff.
BRAVO to all - extremely well done!

Room Tip: ALL the rooms are good!

First trip to Gettysburg and the hallowed battlefield. This hotel seemed to take you back in time (ignoring all the modern amenities, of course) and perfectly suited the weekend. A-plus on all the usual categories. And the folks were especially helpful and friendly.

This was a gift from our daughter who bought a 2 night stay on living social. The room was so nice. Large like a one bedroom apartment. When we arrived there was cheese, crackers, strawberries with chocolate to welcome us. They then brought up muffins, juice and grapes for the morning. Great location, well maintained, wifi and CLEAN!! We really enjoyed it.

Best place to stay in the Gettysburg area. Super clean, friendly and spacious. In the morning you get a couple pastries of some kind, a caraffe of OJ, butter and milk for tea/coffee available in the room. All the baked goods are made there so they're fresh. Also, this hotel is supposedly haunted, so it's fun to stay there and see what you can see! I rated the sleep quality "average" because it's on a busy street in a college town, but that's not the hotel's fault.

Room Tip: Get a suite on the 4th floor

We stayed at the James Getty this weekend. Having stayed at several Bed and Breakfasts before this one, I found the James Getty to be a bit different. Typically the hosts at a B&B are very social and helpful, but I am not sure if I even met the owners or not. Also, there was not a common area to get coffee or a drink or anything. Most B&B's I have been at allow the ability to get something when you want to. While the breakfast was not hot or served in a dining area, it was very yummy! I enjoyed every bread, muffin, and cake. Like I said, just different than most.
The location is great. You can walk around the town and shop or eat, it is very convinient. Our room was beautiful and comfortable. I love that there was a living area with a mini kitchen and everything. On the down side, the noise on the street was VERY noisy at 2am when the bar next door closed and our bed was very squeaky.
Overall, I would certainly stay here again. Especially now that I know what to expect. I would simply ask for a room in the back of the hotel instead.

Room Tip: Choose one in the back!

We go to Gettysburg two or three times a year and this was our first stay a the james Gettys Hotel. It was by far the best time we ever had. We will make it a point to stay there at every opportunity.
