We really loved staying at this hotel. Our suite was great and included a separate living room with TV, stove and fridge. Every day they would deliver a snack (cookies or apples) and breakfast for the next morning (pastries, OJ, cream for coffee). It was such a nice touch! The location was perfect. We could walk easily to everything downtown...

We had a wonderful stay at the James Gettys Hotel for 2 nights in late Sept.The Sign of the Golden Cross Keys Suite was our room. DO phone directly to reserve a room as soon as you know your dates. There are only 12 rooms and they fill fast. We enjoyed the location since it was 1/2 a block to...

The James Getty Hotel is located in the center of Gettysburg, near the town square, a perfect location for walking to nearby sites and dinner spots. This small historic inn with only 12 units, which dates from 1804, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. We had a small, compact suite (Sign of the Spread Eagle Suite), with...

Comfortable and modernize 3 room suite - Sitting room w/ full kitchen, bath and bedroom. Almost home cooked continental breakfast placed in refrigerator. Coffee is self made with great drip coffee meaning more than enough grounds for full flavored coffee. As noted, full range and place settings for four. On the main street. Only minor downside is the amount of...

My wife and I stayed in the James Getty hotel for one night on a brief visit to Gettysburg. The area is absolutely beautiful and the hotel itself has real character. We arrived quite early so our room wasn’t ready but the staff provided us with recommendations for lunch as well as giving us access to their car park. The...

We stayed in the Indian King room which had lots of room and beautiful high ceilings. The fully stocked kitchenette was very convenient. Also, the fresh ground coffee for the coffee maker was very good and better any hotel coffee I've had. We loved the pastry and fruit breakfast basket that was delivered in the evenings, along with orange juice...

Very clean, very quiet and very roomy - with a very friendly and attentive staff. Walk out the front door for shopping and restaurants all within a few blocks. Battlefield is a short drive down the road. Can't go wrong with this hotel.

Great location, friendly staff, roomy room and extremely clean. Refreshed baked goods and chocolate very nice. Instead of breakfast we enjoyed these at night for dessert. Coffee cake especially was delicious. Can't say the rooms are decadent or unusual but they are very comfortable. Overall stay here, you will not be disappointed.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights with our two young sons. The Sign of the Buck suite was very nicely laid out. The staff is friendly and accommodating with any needs.
