Room was clean and quiet. Lots of space. Dated furnishings but that's the idea... you're in Gettysburg! The owner/staff were very helpful, low key. There is an elevator although hotel is small (3 floors). Great little kitchen and they drop off treats for you for breakfast and after dinner cookies. Only think I would recommend is a TV upgrade and...

Beautiful building with a warm and friendly staff. We stayed in the Majestic Suite and found it to be very clean, warm and inviting. We had a small issue with the satellite and could not get the tv to work even after contacting the innkeeper. Other than this minor problem all else was as promised. They even provided fresh muffins,...

We stayed in the Lord Nelson suite and the Majestic suite during our February mini break. The lord Nelson suite is our favorite we decided. It is in the back of the hotel on the second floor. It has been updated since our last stay with a new headboard, side tables, and microwave. It has a cozy apartment feel. The...

The room was very clean and comfortable and all of the staff were pleasant and helpful. It was located in the heart of downtown and we could visit the shops and restaurants without driving All of the rooms have a small kitchen and living room, since the building was previously used as an apartment building. The building also served as...

The juice , milk, home-made muffins, cookies and fresh fruit every morning was enough to get the day started. The staff was excellent . Free parking in the back . I really...

We stayed in 'The Sign of the Buck' and it was fantastic. Room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. There was a small kitchenette if we wanted to cook, a sitting room which could serve as another sleeping area, a private bath, and a queen bedroom. It looks 1920s as advertised but has the amenities and feel of a new room....

James Getty Hotel is not a usual hotel. Upon entering you'll see a small lobby with check-in desk and a warm large wooden staircase that reeks of the 1800's! Quaint would be an appropriate word to describe the entry. Staff is friendly and will lead you to your suite. (They are all suites.) Your suite will resemble a small apartment...
