We recently stayed here for a weekend "getaway". Location is fantastic. Everything within walking distance. The room was ADORABLE. Kitchenette, living room area, surprisingly large bedroom. Furniture was clean and comfortable. They leave you muffin/fruit baskets in your room each night and "cookie of the day". Juice and milk carafes in the fridge. We only saw the desk clerk when...

We stayed two nights at the James Getty and had two rooms. The hotel is in the heart of downtown Gettysburg and is an historic hotel. It has been wonderfully updated. Each of our rooms was like a mini apartment. Living room, Kitchette, big bathroom, huge walk in closet and comfy bedroom with a queen size bed. We had my...

Great location. Heart of Gettysburg. Stayed in the suite. Nicely appointed, clean, comfortable, cozy. ALL of the staff were unbelievably welcoming and hospitable! A plus for travelers from other states/countries. Breakfast of in -house made baked goods, brought to your room! Delicious! The only caution - the hotel is next to a restaurant. An alley separates the 2. At night,...

The location of this hotel is great. It is right in the heart of downtown Gettysburg. We were very pleased with our room. It was comfortable, roomy, clean, and had a fully equipped kitchen including a refrigerator stocked with milk, juice and cream. The homemade granola, muffins, and bread provided for breakfast were delicious. The staff was very friendly and...

Room was clean and quiet. Lots of space. Dated furnishings but that's the idea... you're in Gettysburg! The owner/staff were very helpful, low key. There is an elevator although hotel is small (3 floors). Great little kitchen and they drop off treats for you for breakfast and after dinner cookies. Only think I would recommend is a TV upgrade and...

Beautiful building with a warm and friendly staff. We stayed in the Majestic Suite and found it to be very clean, warm and inviting. We had a small issue with the satellite and could not get the tv to work even after contacting the innkeeper. Other than this minor problem all else was as promised. They even provided fresh muffins,...

We stayed in the Lord Nelson suite and the Majestic suite during our February mini break. The lord Nelson suite is our favorite we decided. It is in the back of the hotel on the second floor. It has been updated since our last stay with a new headboard, side tables, and microwave. It has a cozy apartment feel. The...

The room was very clean and comfortable and all of the staff were pleasant and helpful.
