“Can't wait to go back and stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2014

We were fortunate to stay at this hotel over the a long Martin Luther King holiday in 2014. We were looking to go skiing at Liberty and the hotels there were booked. This hotel was only 13 miles from the mountain so we gave it a try. What a treat! Upon our arrival, we entered the front door were we were greeted by friendly staff. It felt very cozy and charming! Our large suite was ready to go and waiting in our room was a lovely plate of fresh fruit and cheeses for snack, and fresh juice, cream and pastries for the morning. I loved the kitchenette, it came in handy during our stay. The Tuesday we were there, a large snow storm hit. We were able to get out and go skiing, but the staff made sure when we got back we had fresh baked cookies and hot chocolate to warm our chilled bones. Thanks Catrina for taking such good care of us! Location is also great. Easy to experience the History that surrounds the hotel and plenty of places to eat locally. We were able to walk to the local Blue & Grey bar for drinks and dinner several times. Great burgers! Can't wait to go back! Thanks again

Room Tip: We had The Sign of the Buck Suite. 3 Floor - easy access of the elevator but also easy access to th...

we loved the spaciousness of the suite, very clean, comfortable bed, and loved eating the breakfast in our room at our leisure! Gettysburg is a lovely town to walk, eat and shop in. We loved the bangers and mash at Caryowens Irish Pub! Cannot wait to stay here again! the only suggestion I would have is to bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper as you can hear your neighbors...ear plugs worked for me. Friendly, helpful, staff.

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend and this place did not let us down. Free parking in the back of the building was an added bonus. Rooms were big with the kitchen, living area, bathroom and bedroom. Nice Hi-Def T.V. to watch some Olympic action. The homemade muffins and cakes and other food they provided were all top quality. Lots of good places to eat at and shop are right out the front door. We stayed in the "Indian" Suite and were aware of the fact that road noise can be an issue. A pair of ear plugs helped to bring about a good nights sleep. Ask for a room in the back of the hotel if this is a problem for you. We have stayed in Gettysburg many times in the past and will return to James Gettys again for our return.

This hotel was just what I was looking for, for a quick weekend away. It was close and had great restaurants near by. Everyone was friendly and very helpful with recommendations. Can't wait to go back again.

Room Tip: The Blue Parrot Room was great!

This hotel fantastic and the suites were huge! We got a living room, bedroom, kitchenette and bath instead of just a bedroom with a desk and chair in the corner. Too bad we were only staying for one night. If I was taking my family for a visit to Gettysburg, this would be the perfect "home base." Right off the square, walking distance to food and entertainment, and private parking in the alley.

This hotel has the charm of a B&B with unique suites and lots of personal touches. I liked fresh baked goods (no packaged stuff), OJ, and fruits for the Continental breakfast plus quality coffee, not the stale packages. There was even a flash-light in our bedroom...have you ever been in a hotel when the power went out? I haven't, but Gburg does have a sketchy power system so its great that the hotel is thinking of all possible needs.

I agree with the comments about the noise! The Lincoln Highway is right outside the room. The history is appreciated (this road is what gave Eisenhower to inspiration for the Interstate System), but the trucks keep driving by all night. I had a pair of earplugs in my bag, so I had no trouble sleeping. The hotel should consider offering the cheap foam pairs to light-sleeping guests rather then face bad reviews for something totally beyond their control.

Room Tip: Great view from the 4th Floor.

Years ago, our introduction to Gettysburg was the James Gettys Hotel; its welcoming, caring staff, its attractive decor and cleanliness, its spacious, comfortable suites, and its attention to detail make us come back year after year. The staff runs the hotel with a great deal of consistency, never wavering in its efforts to make guests feel at home. It's not only the chocolates, the cookies, and the breakfast treats that we love but the willingness of the staff to give us excellent advice about touring the area that we value. Since we've been coming to Gettysburg for at least the last ten years, we know that the James Gettys is always kept fresh with new paint, carpeting, or furniture, as needed. My husband and I travel a lot, and this is by far the finest place we've ever stayed, and it's what keeps us returning. Thank you to everyone connected with the hotel.

My husband and I were there for Remembrance Week-end. With 10,000 people in town, Gettysburg is a madhouse. The James Gettysburg offered a quiet place to relax. The evening snacks of cookies or chocolate were much appreciated. The staff is delightful and were willing to help with directions and places to eat and shop. The baked goodies were on par with any top notch bakery but were homemade. The breakfast delivered to our room made it easy to sleep in and enjoy it.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Blue Parrot but have stayed in the Majestic on a prior trip.
