We stayed in 'The Sign of the Buck' and it was fantastic. Room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. There was a small kitchenette if we wanted to cook, a sitting room which could serve as another sleeping area, a private bath, and a queen bedroom. It looks 1920s as advertised but has the amenities and feel of a new room....

James Getty Hotel is not a usual hotel. Upon entering you'll see a small lobby with check-in desk and a warm large wooden staircase that reeks of the 1800's! Quaint would be an appropriate word to describe the entry. Staff is friendly and will lead you to your suite. (They are all suites.) Your suite will resemble a small apartment...

We had a wonderful stay. Staff was great. Will be back. The room was clean and was quiet. The breakfast muffins were wonderful. Thank you for a great time. The town of Gettysburg is beautiful. This hotel is located in the heart of the town. Perfect backdrop for visiting civil war history sites....

We stayed here for 3 nights in October. The location was wonderful, right in downtown Gettysburg, parking was easy, and it was within walking distance of many attractions. The staff was wonderful, as were the muffins and orange juice we received each morning in our room along with the cookies that we received each evening.

We stayed one night and wished we could have stayed longer. Very friendly and helpful staff who brought up fresh milk for us to have with our tea and offered to go home and get a tea pot if we wanted one. A great place to stay.

I see that you visit Gettysburg quite often and enjoy the ghost stories. The James Gettys Hotel was known as the Union Hotel during the battles at Gettysburg and most likely used as a hospital. You can read about the James Gettys in the 3rd edition of Ghosts of Gettysburg by Mark Nesbitt.
