My husband and I stayed at this motel last year, and loved it! The manager at that time Andrew was great, and it was because of him that we decided to go back and stay there again even though he was not the manager anymore. Well let me tell you, BIG MISTAKE!!! The room was clean when we got there.... More

Fantastic location, just minutes from so many Gettysburg points of interest! We received a warm friendly welcome upon check-in. The room was spacious, comfortably furnished and pleasingly decorated. All sundries - towels, soap, cups, etc., were just as one would wish, spotless and well set out. Our room was set back far enough from the street to be private and... More

This Place was Awlful. Stayed there becuase of availability...but never again. Room was dirty. The Place looked like it hadn't be cleaned since the Civil War. Only one Light Bulb in Bathroom fixture worked. (I guess so you couldn't see the crud!) Door to the Bathroom was off its hidges. The beds, pillows, linens and towels were beat and thread... More

My husband and I stayed at the Colton, for 2 days, I was leery due to the price (it was the cheapest in the area), but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised! It's an Old Fashioned motel, that is cozy. We stayed in a room with a queen bed, it was very clean, the beds were comfortable, it... More

Recently we went to Gettysburg and decided to stay at the Colton. Our stay was fabulous. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the rooms were immaculately clean. My father rented a room from a Days Inn nearby, and paid nearly $50 more than we did per night...our room was literally twice the size of his! And I have... More

We stayed overnight here after hiking 60 miles of the Appalachian Trail, so we enjoyed the hot showers and the bed. The counter service was fine, light breakfast danishes in the morning. There was mold in the shower and several lights were burned out in the room. It was relatively clean. Our biggest complaint was that the place wouldn't let... More

I have stayed in a lot of motels over many years. The lady at the front desk was very nice, however, once we got to our room and got settled in 2 adults, and got in bed about 10:00, I happened to look behind the bed stand which was pulled away from the wall. I couldn't believe what i saw,... More

We came to Gettysburg to see alot of the history behind our country and were very interested in seeing where the Civil War took place. The Colton was picked over the other motels in the area, mainly due to price and the good reviews we had read. Upon arrival at the Colton, we were completely surprised at the condition of... More
