Great location, friendly staff, roomy room and extremely clean. Refreshed baked goods and chocolate very nice. Instead of breakfast we enjoyed these at night for dessert. Coffee cake especially was delicious. Can't say the rooms are decadent or unusual but they are very comfortable. Overall stay here, you will not be disappointed.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights with our two young sons. The Sign of the Buck suite was very nicely laid out. The staff is friendly and accommodating with any needs. At check-in you are provided with a parking pass for the rear lot which is a huge help in busy downtown Gettysburg. If you...

My wife and I stayed there Thurs, Fri, & Sat in the Majestic Suite. Huge in most respects. Large sitting area, equally large bedroom with comfortable king bed, and large bathroom with jacuzzi tub and nice shower. Average toiletries but had fresh ground coffe in am with home made pastries and orange juice. Overall a delight. I got up before...

Positive - clean room, close to restaurants and cafés. Parking free at rear of hotel. Staff really friendly and helpful. Cookies left at night was a homely touch. Downside - noisy air conditioning resulted in having to move rooms at 12.30am. No one on site after 10pm only a contact telephone no. Muffins, zucchini bread and grapes not really my...

Selected this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews and was not disappointed. The James Gettys has it all, warmth, charm, history, great location, hospitality and an excellent value. I had called ahead for a late check-in as the front desk closes at 8 p.m. and the front door is locked. I was given instructions as to where to park and where...

Hi there! Thank you for your kind words! It was a pleasure hosting your trip to Gettysburg! Your description of the Sign of the Spread Eagle Suite is as charming as the suite itself! It is the perfect room for a single traveler, or a budget-minded couple that doesn't mind a smaller bed. We hope to see you again very...

We chose the James Gettys based on the Trip Advisor reviews, reasonable price, and perfect location. We were assigned to the Keystone Suite which is on the 4th floor overlooking Chambersburg Street. The suite was perfect for my family of three, although a queen bed (instead of a double) would have made things a bit more comfortable. The room was...

Loved everything! Clean, comfortable and charming. After years of stale muffins and boxed cereals, the homemade treats were a welcome change. The manager of the hotel was attentive and welcoming (as was her sister). We will be back!

This was our first time to see the Gettysburg National Battlefield and we weren't sure where to stay. We chose the James Getty Hotel because it is located in the city center. We were happy with our choice, because we could walk to a restaurant for dinner. We also learned that for a very small price you can take a...

We regularly stay at the James Getty when visiting Gettysburg. The hotel is located in the heart of Gettysburg - within walking distance to many sites.

We loved everything about this hotel: It's historic look; it's cleanliness and modern amenities such as wi-fi; our suite (John Trumbull Sr) complete with kitchen, breakfast left in the fridge, and cookies or chocolates left at night; Lord Nelson's Gallery connected to it; Adams County Winery on one side of it and the Blue Parrot Bistro on the other side....
