This is the perfect place to stay in Gettysburg if you do not want to spend a lot on a room and don't need all the amenities. I almost always stay here and use the money I save to spend in town during my visit. It's nothing fancy but if you spend most of your time in town or on the battlefields, then the Colton may be for you. Customer service is friendly as well. Conveniently located near National Cemetery, the main parts of the battlefield, and good places to eat.

Room Tip: All rooms are pretty much the same.

clean and comfortable and a fantastic location. I was very pleased with the management. the entire staff were all very nice and helpful and this is where i'll stay on my next visit. breakfast was just pastries, but they were fresh and the coffee was good. the room had a fridge, which was a big help. the management people were really good about recommending places to eat in town. the motel is dated, but very clean. the maid was super nice and had good recommendations for local places to visit, since we were there during the shutdown. the price was great, especially considering the motel is walking distance from just about all the town has to offer.

The manager tells you one thing, but when you are there something else comes up.She makes promises she won't keep and disapoints you. The rooms are in need of repairs.The pool looked like you could walk across it.

I actually booked at the Colton but since they were full when I got to the motel, they sent me to their "sister" motel, The Budget Motel, just down the street. These people are truly kind and concerned that their customers are taken care of and happy! Older motel, but spik and span clean, very comfy bed, and all amenities were more than satisfactory :) Cannot wait to go back to Gettysburg to visit and would definitely stay at either of these motels! VERY affordable!

I stayed at the Colton Motel in Gettysburg with friends over the Labor Day weekend. The Colton is not modern and fancy, but it is extremely reasonably priced, and the location cannot be beat! We enjoyed the outdoor pool and the complimentary pastries and coffee in the morning. The staff was hospitable and made us feel like family. If you are looking for all of the bells and whistles of the large chains, than this is not your motel. However, if you are looking for a clean, friendly, affordable place to rest your head...this is it!

I stayed here because of the location and the price. I read all the reviews so I knew what I was getting, a no frills room. It needs some tlc on the maintenance and could use a deep clean in the corners but I felt that the bathroom and the bed was clean. I was gone all day and just needed a place a to sleep. This place suited the bill. The manager was outstanding, kind and very helpful. If money is tight and you want to stay downtown, this is the place. I would stay there again.
