Colton Motel
Ranked #27 of 28 Hotels in Gettysburg
Reviewed 25 August 2014

The rooms were decent and the price is great, BUT, both rooms used by our group had odor issues. Even though our room was nonsmoking, there was a faint odor of tobacco smoke. Not enough to really bother us, but perhaps someone with asthma would have a problem. The BIG issue was that both bathrooms smelled of urine. Obviously the bathroom floors do not get mopped! Yuck! Would probably not stay here again for that reason.

The room was very clean, and close to everything. I love waking up early to a continental breakfast which I read this motel had. Waited till 8:10 am and nothing as of yet, got tied of wasting my day waiting. Come to find out all you get was a donut anyway. Not much of a continental breakfast to me. The question is do you want to waste your all day waiting for a donut that might never come, I think not.

Basic older motel, but has pool and internet worked perfectly. Clean and can't beat the location. Very pleasant and helpful desk staff. Also, I prefer independent motels to the cheap chains - much nicer budget experience and the Colton fits the bill.

The Colten is a quaint older motel. The room and bathroom were clean, the beds were comfortable. A small refrigerator was provided. There is a pool. Coffee available @ the office. The staff was wonderful! It is conveniently located, across from the cemetaries and within walking distance of attractions, shopping and downtown. Reasonable priced and would stay again.

We ended up in this motel because a different motel in town lost our reservation, so high marks for the Colton for being available and taking us on short notice.

This is a cheap, basic motel. It is has very basic amenities inside and the look is somewhat dated. But it was relatively clean and convenient to the Gettysburg Battlefield and other local attractions, as well as some good restaurants - so the location is prime. The bathtub in our room could use some help (a crack in the middle, the water didn't drain too fast so you got a bit of an ankle bath while you showered). But considering the price and location it was definitely fine. Despite being on a main road, it seemed quiet at night. The guy who checked us in was very nice and helpful with maps and suggestions for things to do in the area.

Nothing fancy, but if you need a place to stay for the night in Gettysburg and don't want to break your budget, this is for you. If you want something fancy, probably not.

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!
