Great location and lovely staff

3.8 on December 04, 2014

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

4.6 on November 12, 2014

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.


Majestic Suite is the Exceptional!

5 on November 11, 2014

The Majestic Suite spoiled us and we will be forever disappointed in other hotel rooms. When we arrived there was a basket of delicious muffins, breads, and fruit with dark chocolate in the shape of the hotel. There was even orange juice in the refrigerator. Our suite included a massive living room with a full size bar and mini kitchen area. The bedroom included a King size bed and fireplace and the whole room contained beautiful room furnishings. The bathroom was beautiful and included a huge whirlpool tub and shower stall with a separate toilet room. The entire room was emaculate. We can't wait to return to The James Getty Hotel! It was conviently located right in town within walking distance to all restaurants, shopping, ghost tours, and pubs. Highly recommend staying here.


Weekend getaway

Great time, very nice place... minimal food onsite, but the muffins and orange juice were tasty. they would benefit from making a breakfast arrangement with a nearby restaurant.


Vacation.

We came back to Gettysburg on a short vacation, and decided to stay at the James Getty Hotel this time, and were very glad we did. We loved staying in town within walking distances of most everything. We will be back.

Best place to stay in Gettysburg

Very clean, very spacious, and great service. Ideal location in the heart of town, with great shopping and dining within an easy walk. Our morning breakfasts were excellent! We recommend with no reservations.


A Special Hotel

4.8 on August 29, 2014

A really neat place to stay. Quaint. Wonderful amenities. Don't forget to say hi to the fabulous black lab named "Char" who you can find in the adjoining Lord Nelson Gallery -- named, by the way, for a black lab.
