lovely place, great location

4.6 on April 03, 2015

We stayed on the 4th floor. Our room had a microwave, frig, and stove with a sofa and table in one room and the bed in another room. The hotel is a very short walk to Lincoln Square and a short drive to the Gettysburg visitor center. We had muffins, bread, coffee and juice for breakfast.

An outstanding stay at a historic hotel close to everything!!!

We've planned many weekend getaways in Gettysburg and this was the best ever in terms of the hotel we stayed at.

We stayed 2 nights this past weekend. It was a wonderful end of the winter get away. The fresh baked goods were a pleasant surprise to our stay. Everyone was very friendly. It was a very relaxing weekend. The staff employees were very helpful with information on the town and directions. The room was very comfortable and it was right in town to walk to many venues. Great weekend.

We recently stayed at the James Getty Hotel and had a wonderful time. Both our room and the hotel were bright, beautiful and clean. We found the staff to be, not only accommodating but warm and personable. The excellent location of the hotel added to our enjoyable experience. We are looking forward to returning.

Great location and lovely staff

The staff at the James Getty goes above and beyond to make guests feel welcome. As a New Yorker who prefers not to drive, the location is just perfect for Gettysburg sightseeing. My only critique is that the decor could use some updating, especially when you consider the rate per night. Then again, the location does make the rate worth it at the end of the day, especially when you consider the free breakfast and free parking. All and all I plan to stay at the James Getty whenever visiting family in Gettysburg.

Very nice place to stay, Highly recommended.

My wife and I spent a long weekend experincing the town, battlefield and museum. The town of Gettysburg is surrounded by the battlefield so it will remain small. The James Getty Hotel is in the middle of town. It was very clean and the staff was friendly. It's a home away from home. The snacks and breakfast muffins are brought to your room in the evening so you start the day at your own pace (there is no dining room or traditional breakfast). We had a gteat time and would reccommend this B&B. Sorry no Ghosts.

Charming Hotel

A really nice hotel with wonderful front desk staff. The continental breakfast and the afternoon treats, both brought to the room, were excellent and much appreciated.
