Friendly Gettysburg Hotel

James Getty House was very comfortable and conveniently located. We had a room with a small kitchen, and each evening the proprietor stocked our room with juice, cream, coffee and tea, and pastries and fruit. It was easy to walk about and fun to return to a room that felt more like home than a hotel. Particularly in this town, it was fun to have charming accommodations that were similar to a bed and breakfast. This hotel is also located between 2 much recommended restaurants in town, so that's another bonus--10 minute walk to the college campus so perfect for visiting parents/prospective students.

Bit of a disappointment, really.

Pros: The location, baked goods and friendliness of the staff. Three big positives there.
Cons: The damp, musty smell of the room and the drunken next-door neighbors at the bar.
Location: Great location. Easily walkable to many of Gettysburg's restaurants, cafes and bars. Also a very short and easy drive to the National Park.
The first thing to hit us when we opened the door to our room was... the smell. Musty and stale, to put it mildly. Was this odor trapped in the wall-to-wall shag carpeting? Perhaps. And the arms of the love seat were actually damp to the touch. Good thing we didn't spend too much time in the room. The location is fantastic; within easy walking distance of good restaurants and a hip Irish pub. The staff were pleasant and helpful, too, along with some off-the-charts baked goods that were provided each morning! Seriously delicious stuff. Be warned, though: the hotel shares a courtyard with a bar/restaurant next door and the patrons were clearly feeling their pints late Friday night/early Saturday morning and were a bit too vocal. Rip out the shag carpeting, get in a heavy duty dehumidifier and keep the bar's patrons quiet and you'd have yourself a winner. Until then, not so much...

Warm and inviting

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
Stayed at The James Gettys Hotel this past weekend. Warm,friendly and inviting are just the beginning of describing our stay.The entire hotel is spotless, the staff super friendly and unpretentious.We felt like we had our own little condo for the weekend, with lots of privacy. Freshly baked local breads and muffins ,along with gourmet coffee and English teas,with a carafe of fresh orange juice, add a special touch in the evening with their turn down service. Great location, easy to walk to any of the fine restaurants/bars in town. We will definitely stay here again.
