This was a little vacation trip. James Gettys Hotel was perfect, and we would stay there again. The room was comfortable and quiet, and the location convenient. There are plenty of good restaurants and shops within easy walking distance. Nearby parking is provided as well. The light breakfast delivered to the room was very tasty and a great time saver. Facilities in the suite for preparing coffee, tea, etc. were great too.

Unlike reviews of this B&B I've read on Yelp, our room was perfectly quiet and my wife and I slept very well. The service was amazing. My wife used the kitchenette to cook Thai dishes for our friends and needed an frying pan. No problem. They brought one right up. For anything you need just ask for it. Location is awesome. Anything you would want to do in Gettysburg you are in the middle of it with this hotel. The suite we stayed in felt like a small apartment which was perfect for us. Best hotel I've stayed in. I can't say enough how much we enjoyed our stay there. Only con was the rolls they would bring the night before. That is the only form of a breakfast and if your limiting carbs you'll have to eat breakfast at one of the local restaurants (which are quite plentiful and within walking distance). Highly recommended !!

My husband and I stayed at the James Gettys to celebrate our 20th anniversary. It is a beautifully maintained hotel. Fresh pastry & fruit provided for breakfast and homemade cookies provided in the evening. We loved the charming town of Gettysburg and would recommend the James Gettys to anyone.

This was a short getaway from the D.C. area. We were impressed by the comfort and spaciousness of the room, and especially by the friendly and efficient staff.

My wife and I have established an annual long, Columbus Day weekend in Gettysburg every year and our base of operations while there is the James Getty Hotel. We tried 2 other hotels within 3 blocks of the Getty but found that the Getty cannot be beat for comfort, location, and service. We highly recommend the James Getty Hotel......but only so long as we are able to reserve a room for "our weekend"!!!!

if you want the feeling and excitement of being back in time then book this wonderful place. From the moment you step in you are at home very welcomed. Our suite the Majastic Suite was fabulous - bathroom real big - bed comfy - and the breakfast left each night was very good. Could not ask for anything better -- but the location was it - right in the middle of town everything you could as for.
