Reviewed 9 July 2014

Great location, very basic/old...but sufficient for time spent in room. Nice to save some money since we were in hotels for 2 weeks. Door was sticky and curtains need replacing (worn w/ holes).
Eat at nearby dobbins tavern for French onion soup!

Had read reviews on here so we were looking for Colton's. We were just here for one night and didn't want to spend $$$$ for a nights stay. We weren't in room much. The room was nice and clean. Everyone working spoke to us and they were very friendly. Pool was clean, of course we didn't have time to swim. A.C. worked great. Would have liked a back side room with a king bed, but we were given a room with 2 double beds. We walked around for 5 hrs and loved every min. We we got back other guest were sitting outside there rooms chatting and we jointed right in. It was so nice to chat with others. We will be back many many time.

I love staying at these mom & POP motels. The place was neat and check in was smooth. The desk clerks were so friendly and helpful. They had all the info and answered all our guestions about the area. The room was clean and neat. It could be described as "retro" but every thing worked. It is not a chain motel, so don't expect it to be like one. The price was very good.

It was a Motel. Very old but clean. Good walking location near most things. Continental breakfast is a donut and weak coffee, if your lucky. Our room wasn't cleaned on second day and the wifi was in acessable.

My husband and I stayed at the Colton for the first time for two nights, Thur and Fri of Memorial Day weekend. Although we were a very late checkin on Thur eve, we were greeted warmly by Rich, who was very nice and helpful as he was described in several other reviews. The room was clean, bedroom had the essentials...clean bed, 2 night stands, dresser, TV ( yes, an older model, not a flat screen, but if you go to Gettysburg to watch TV for any length of time, that is sad), and a mini fridge. The bathroom was a nice size, had good hot water, and was clean. It did not have a hair dryer, but I asked Rich for one and he reached in a drawer in the office with a smile and handed me one and said to bring it back whenever I was finished. Check in and out was smooth. We did not use the WiFi, or have more than a coffee for breakfast as we were meeting friends, although I did note a selection of danishes. As others have said, it is a clean place to sleep, shower, rest, etc. It is not the newest, largest, and most modern. But if you want to be treated kindly by management and have money to spend elsewhere instead of on a pricey room, try out the Colton!

First thing--this is a motel, and it looks dated. Manager was pleasant, the room was clean, but the TV was old and the free WiFI was intermittent. However, the location is very convenient, the price is much less than most other lodging options for Gettysburg, and it is in easy walking distance to lots of attractions (battlefield, downtown, etc.). But be forewarned--breakfast was a couple of donuts on a paper plate.

My wife and I come to Gettysburg almost every month for long weekends. We never stayed here before and figured we could give it A try. For the average joe trying to come to Gettysburg and just needing A place to sleep give the Colton A try. Average size room and can tell it hasn't been remodeled in years but it is clean and A good price.
