“No Complaints”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2011

Parking right behind hotel, wine tasting of county wines next door, & a block to town circle with restaurants--also notebook in room with menus from lots of nearby restaurants. Keystone Room was small, but fit our needs--pull-out sleeper in kitchenette area containing medium fridge, range, microwave plus tiny dinette & 2 chairs while double bed was in another room. Loved the big chocolate cookies on arrival (& breakfast basket was there, too). Able to book 2 days before our trip--Stephanie gave me the great tip to use a tour guide in our car. No complaints.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2011

We stayed for one night over MLK weekend and found our room (son of something suite on the 4th floor) to be very clean and spacious. The one TV is out in the living room area and was quite small, but it was fine for us. (They did offer us another room with a flat screen!) The breakfast basket wasn't much and was delivered when we checked in, so by the am the muffins were dry, but the grapes and OJ were good, as were the large cookies! Very friendly staff and free parking behind the hotel, walking distance to all the downtown Gettysburg places, although it is a very quiet town in Jan! Bed was comfy and while there was some noise from the main road out front it wasn't loud enough to bother us, if you are from the country may want to stick to the back of the hotel. Not historically decorated, but doesn't claim to be and was comfortable and cozy with all the florals and country patterns. They give you a key to the front so you can come and go as you please. Nice place, would go back.

My husband and I stayed in the Union suite, it was homey, clean, and the mini kitchen was very convenient. The staff was nice, and we loved all the treats they left for us throughout our stay. This was our first trip to Gettysburg, we plan on returning and would definitely stay at the James Gettys again!
My only warning, it is an old building, you can hear everything your neighbors do and say ;) so remember they can hear you as well!

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights over the Labor Day weekend. We could not have been happier. The James Getty hotel is a remarkably beautiful historic hotel. We stayed in the Sign of the Spread Eagle suite, which is their smallest suite but it still has beautiful comfortable furnishings with more than enough room. We enjoyed having a separate living room, bathroom, and bedroom. Especially appreciated were the wonderful homebaked goodies left in a basket for us each night. Varities of coffee cake, blueberry muffins, grapes, canteloupe, chocolate chip cookies, chocolates and orange juice were very tasty. The hotel is spotlessly clean. Bedding was beautiful and comfortable. We loved the quiet feel to this hotel and know that you will too.

We stayed at this hotel during bike week and was able to get the Majestic Suite. Even with all the loud motorcycles, we had a fairly quite room. The hotel itself was right in the center of town and within walking distance of everything we wanted to see.
The room itself was beautiful. Very nicely furnished with just the right mix of modern and old style.
The in room continental breakfast was great. We had fresh fruit, peach cobler and even some delicious chocolate chip cookies at night.
The staff was very helpful in directing us to good places to eat and the best values in tour options.
I'd definitely highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

This is an excellent hotel. It is located just off the center of town. It was kind of noisy with all of the bikes that were in town.

This hotel, located in the center of town is a wonderful retreat. The hosts are all very friendly and helpful. My wife and I stayed there with friends for the weekend. It is a very unique experience, very different from the typical "Tourist" hotels. The rooms are spacious and very beautifully decorated. The fact that it is in the center of town allows you to walk to the many quaint shops and restaurants that are sometimes missed when you stay at one of the chain hotels. The breakfast that is provided is always very good. The food is brought right to your room. The hotel has a lot of character and history. I would definitely recommend a stay at this hotel.
