Nice place to stay.

4.0 on July 30, 2014

It was very nice. The people who checked us in and out were very nice and helpful. The room was super clean and we liked it because it provided all the dishes you need. It is an excellent place to stay. The only downfall is the breakfast. It isn't much of a breakfast and the muffins were so dry we couldn't even eat them.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for reviewing our hotel and for your compliments to our staff and the cleanliness of our rooms! We know that everyone's breakfast requirements are different, so our continental breakfast basket is designed to provide a quick muffin and fruit to the business person running out the door, or a morning snack to tide over vacationers until everyone in their party is ready to head out the door to the diner. Many of our guests also enjoy wrapping up the baked treats to carry out onto the battlefield for later. I'm very sorry that you did not enjoy the muffins provided. We do bake everything in house and hold our quality to the very highest standards. We really enjoyed having you as our guest and hope to see you again soon! Sincerely, Catriona

Hotel bem localizado com quartos grandes e cozinha bem equipada (o que facilita muito na alimentação).

Innkeeper Response
Portuguese to English translation via online language service: "Hotel well located with large rooms and well equipped kitchen (which greatly facilitates in the feed)." Thank you very much for your review! Our suites are wonderfully accommodating for families, and our kitchenettes with apartment-sized refrigerators really help our guests with sticking to their vacation budgets! We're so glad you enjoyed our hotel! Sincerely, Catriona

The Best Hotel in Gettysburg!

5 on July 14, 2014

The James Getty Hotel is the best Hotel in all of Gettysburg! They are right in the heart of Gettysburg. The staff is fantastic. The rooms are up to date and spotless. Free parking. Homemade breakfasts that were to die for! Kitchenettes in every room. The TV's had over 200 channels in HD! This is the only place that we will stay when in Gettysburg! 5 Stars across the board!

The greatest

4.6 on June 25, 2014

We were very pleasantly surprised with this little hotel. The staff could not be more pleasant and the full kitchen was a real treat. The continental breakfast provided the evening before was really very nice. We would stay here again.

Great Place to stay

4.8 on June 25, 2014

Just for everyone's information all the hotels in town are right next to the main street. So you will have traffic noise unless you get a back room. We liked the noise but others have reported it a bother. The traffic is surprising a lot. Now for the hotel. The staff answered my emails right away. They are like friends you have known awhile. I told them about my wives birthday & they were able to have flowers & cupcakes placed in the room. It was very nice. My wife was one happy lady. The room is setup so you have a separate bedroom & bathroom & have a nice kitchen, table & couch area. It is very nice & very clean. It is like coming home at the end of the day. They give you a key for the front & side door of the hotel so you can get in after hours. I thought that was cool. As for Dining we walked around town & ate at different places. All were nice. The staff drops off a breakfast basket about 4pm. It is placed in the fridge. It was very nice. Gettysburg seems to be one hour away from everything. We went to Lancaster & spent a nice day there. Gettysburg could be used as place to stay as you visit other places. Now would we stay there COURSE!!!! We loved it.

We had spent the night here. The moment we had walked in. We were greeted. This nice lady at the front desk. Had answer all of our questions. The room was perfect! Clean and well kept. We were on the fourth floor. This hotel is located in the perfect place in Gettysburg. All of the restaurant's, and shops within walking distance. One mile from the Gettysburg battle field. I would recommend this hotel and staff. Will visit again!!! Oh no dining rooms. But easy to walk to other restaurants.
