“Wonderful stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2012

We stayed at the Getty last year for our anniversary and it was a fantastic stay. Historic building with a few "spirits". Everything on walking distance and the room was very spacious and comfortable. Would definitely stay there again!

Last year I bought two certificates from Living Social or Groupon to James Getty Hotel. One was a gift to my husband for our anniversary and the other was a christmas gift for my mom and step-father. My husband and I were in Gettysbburg once before and stayed at a B&B that was very nice so I wasn't sure what to expect when I got to James Getty's, maybe we wouldn't like it as much as we did the B&b. Well, we all loved it very much. It was nice to have the kitchenette and wonderful to receive the basket of goodies for breakfast and to snack on each night. The staff was friendly and helpful, even though there weren't any problems that we faced while there, I'm sure they would have bent over backwards to help find a solution if they had to. We will stay there again when we are in Gettysburg!

Small hotel with a great location. Walkable to many restaurants and to shops. Parking in the rear. We had a kitchenette with comfortable chairs for reading or TV watching. Kitchen equipped with pans, dishes and cutlery and coffee. The real treat is every night they bring a basket of homebaked good for breakfast, along with OJ. And a treat for the evening, like fruit or chocolate or cookies. Great value.

Room Tip: ask for a back room to avoid street noise.

With the 150 year anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg next year, the James Gettys certainly typifies the atmosphere of the town and its' history. Set just off the main square, the hotel is a perfect location to enjoy everything Gettysburg including some great restaurants and interesting shops. The rooms are quite large and the service is friendly and professional. An added convenience is the parking behind the hotel. And what a nice surprise to have a generous continental breakfast delivered to your room each evening. We would absolutely recommend the James Gettys hotel to anyone looking for an exceptional place to stay in Gettysburg.

Conveniently located one half a block from the town square several good restaurants and many shops are steps away. The small hotel is clean and well furnished. Stephanie and her staff are friendly and helpful. A nice continental breakfast is delivered to the room and includes fresh, delicious , homemade breads and muffins as well as juice, fruit, teas and gourmet coffee. Afternoon snacks of cookies and chocolate await you after your day of touring. We have stayed here many times over the past 12years. It has been consistently excellent.

Room Tip: Lovely suites. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we will go back.

The rooms are charming and the staff is awesome. Having the "continental breakfast" delivered the night before was such a good idea. Great location. We will definitely stay here the next time we are in town.

Room Tip: Our rooms bedroom was on the street side which is quite noisy in the day but at night, we had no pro...
