James Gettys Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 12, 2012

Just stayed at the James Getty Hotel. It is the cleanest place I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. The mini- suite was lovely, with a small living area, and separate bedroom. There was a cheese platter waiting for us, along with various muffins, cakes, fruit, milk, and orange juice for the morning. We had a kitchenette with a refrig and coffee maker, which was just perfect. The staff was delightful, always a friendly smile, and very willing to accomodate any request. It's location couldn't have been better, right off the square, and close to everything. And, there's free parking in the back. It has been modernized, but is still very quaint. Loved it, and would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back of the hotel are more quiet and off the main street.

We Have a daughter at the college so this is not our first time in Gettysburg. The downtown location was perfect for walking to campus and restaurants. Our suite had a wonderful sitting room where we could all gather on a drizzly day.

Service was wonderful, the breakfast coffee cake was homemade and delicious. A wonderful change from a standard hotel room.

We had a great stay at the James Gettys Hotel. The hotel is well located and our room was clean and spacious. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the muffins and bread at evening turndown service were delicious. Although meant for breakfast the following morning, some became midnight snacks.

Room Tip: The hotel shares an alley with the Blue Parrot restaurant on one side. Although a nice restaurant...

Thank you so much. Our staff works very hard and it so great when guests notice. As for those muffins - you aren't the only people to eat them as a midnight snack :)

We were lured here by a Living Social coupon and were wowed by our stay. Located in the heart of downtown Gettysburg, this is a boutique hotel. Fresh muffins develivered to your room every morning; ours was a 2 room suite with a kitchenette - spacious and comfortable. free wifi, parking, etc. . Near al lthe attractions and restaurants. Highly recommend it.

Thank you for the kind words. I am happy to hear that you really enjoyed your stay. Our Living Social deal has ended and I have to say we met some of the nicest folks over the last few months.
Thanks again,

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.
