Brenda absolutely takes care of us every time. That's why we come back at least 2 times a year. The update on the pool is awesome. We will keep coming back! Granted the motel definately needs some updates but hopefully the owner will make some updates soon.

I used to live in Gettysburg, and return frequently to visit friends and for business. My last trip I stayed in the Colton Motel. If you are looking for a 4 star luxury hotel, keep looking. If you are looking for a basic place to lay your head, and at a reasonable price for a tourist town, give the Colton...

Not particularly cheap (about $100 with tax on a busy mid-June weekend), not stylish, and certainly squeaky-clean, but a great location -- walking distance to the memorial in one direction, and just a few steps from the tourist trap that is Historic Downtown Gettysburg in the other -- and lots of insight and local lore from the fellow working overnight...

this motel needs a complete update. furniture was chipped, lamp was missing a light bulb, somewhat dank smell, walls/paint chipped. but was clean, the gentleman that checked us in was very polite and offered to show us the room before we accepted it but it was late so we just took it anyway.

Crackhead fight in room next to me lasted 7 hours. Phoned front desk to complain repeatedly, no answer. Envelope on mouldy fridge asking for tips. Wifi doesn't work. Definitely would advise staying elsewhere. Paint flaking off everywhere in room. Disgusting "stains" on carpet. I considered knocking on neighbours door to ask them to quiet down but when I heard them...

After much review on several sights we booked the hotel with confidence that it was going to be good. It wasn't even good. The motel is very old, with paper thin walls. You could hear the other occupants on both sides of the walls, be it TV, talking on the phone or Snoring. Yes they are so thin you can...

Gave it only one dot rating because I couldn't give it none. Do not stay here. I spent two nights but after seeing the property tried to book somewhere else but no rooms available. It is dirty, run down and scary. They need new linen, New blankets, New shower curtains, New drapes, etc. Couldn't even eat in my room because...

My room was a non-smoking double bed room at a total cost of $56 per night. It contained a TV with Comcast service, an AC/Heat system in the wall, and a bathroom which some complimentary soap and shampoo by the hotel. The room was clean, decently good looking, and provided a decent view of outside. The amenities included free WiFi,...
