I did not expect anything luxurious but I was definately disappointed. It was not filthy but it wasn't very clean either. I had booked the room by phone and when I checked in the clerk ran my room charge at a higher rate than I had already been given. When I showed him my confirmation that I had printed from...

We have stayed at the Colton Motel a few times already, we return because they are always friendly & helpful. While other motel pools are packed to overcrowding - we almost have the Colton's to ourselves. It might be outdated in some aspects, but it is affordable and we will continue to come back.

This hotel is fine for the budget conscious traveler who is planning to spend more time seeing the sites than hanging out at the hotel. Location is great, easy walking to shops and historical gettysburg sites. Staff was extremely nice, making restaurant suggestions and happy to help in general. I'd stay again if on a budget because of the staff...

I found this motel to be perfectly clean and in order. The water pressure for the shower is the best I have ever seen. The staff was very helpful and kind to give me information about the local attractions. I would stay here again! Most all attractions are within walking distance and I did not have to pay for parking!...

My husband is temporarily working in Gettysburg in a musical. It was late and we needed a place to stay for the night. The price was reasonable. The next morning we had the complimentary danishes and juice. My husband had to prepare for rehersal. We were not ready to leave Gettysburg. They allowed me to leave my car so that...

My husband and I found the Colten Motel inexpensive, clean, comfortable, spacious and wonderful in every way! They had free morning danish and coffee and the terrific staff treated us like family. We are now planning another trip back and the Colten is already booked for us! Jamiesons, Pennsylvania

My husband and son and I have been staying at this motel for a long long time about 10 years and this by far was the worst year ever. And I can guarantee the last time we will stay there. First they put us in the upstairs room which would have been ok but the steps going up are narrow...

I visited Gettysburg from Ohio on May 19th, 2009 and I chose the Colton Motel. I am a simple traveler and I only need basic lodging. After all, most of my time spent in the room will be while I am asleep. On average, the Colton was half the price of other motels in Gettysburg so that was a great...
