My mom and I were on a family history trip to central PA and decided to get in a little site seeing. As we were on a fairly tight budget, a review of the hotels in the Gettysburg area produced a short list, the Colton being one of them. We stayed for three nights. The motel is centrally located within...

We arrived here late in the evening. We chose The Colton straight off our satnav after spending the whole day touring the battlefield. I guess we just got lucky as the room rate was very reasonable indeed. The guy who checked us in was very efficiant and helpful. As there were two beds we decided to have one each, a...

Just returned from two night visiit to Gettysburg. As previously reviewed the Colton Motel is an older motor lodge type motel. It was clean, but a bit ragged around the edges. That was OK with us because we only spent the nights there and were away the rest of the day. Only difficulty we had was with stopped up bathroom...

My sister and I stayed here for 2 nights in August. Decided to take a chance based on reviews. We were simply looking for a place to sleep after running around all day. Must admit I was a tad disappointed but didn't expect it to be anything special. Positives- You can't beat the cost as the INNs and most hotels...

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 It might be outdated in some aspects, but it is affordable and we will continue to come back.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...
