Comfortable, clean, old fashioned room.

Posted Nov 11, 2014
Pros: I liked its central location and its simplicity. It was a great deal compared to the chain hotels.
Cons: The bathroom tub was cracked around the drain.
Location: Close to the Gettysburg battlefield. Lots of tourist shops and historic places.
Nice hot showers! The heater was great, but very noisy. I had to wear earplugs. Towels got changed every day. Continental breakfast is only a donut and coffee.

It may be cheap, but at least it's dirty.

Posted Oct 20, 2014
Pros: Lots of TV channels.
Cons: I think it's time to raze this place and start over.
Even though this room was reserved weeks ahead of time, we were told since we were the last to arrive, we would get he room next to the laundry. But not to worry--laundry wouldn't start until 9:00am. Except on the 2nd morning of our stay, when it started just after 7:00. We were already awake, since the employees next door were so lound, it was almost as if they were in the room with us. The room was decrepit and dirty. It had obviously been remodeled many times over the years using the cheapest possible materials, none of which matched. the plastering and painting looked as though they were completed by a blind epileptic. The carpet was torn, smelled bad, and was so dirty, one felt the need to put on shoes to go to the bathroom. The floor of the tub shifted up and down, depending on where I stood.

Nice motel, cheap price

The room was pretty basic but very clean. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and there were free Danishes and coffee in the mornings. I'd definitely stay here again.

Economy hotel in good location

Posted Aug 20, 2014
Pros: Location is good and room rates were cheaper tan others in the area.
Cons: Front desk staff could make one feel welcome and provide room information.
Location: Good location in downtown, easy walk to everything.
Hotel room was aged but maintained in acceptable condition. Hotel desk staff was functional but did not make one feel overly welcome. Breakfast consists of buns and coffee, get there early or by 8:00 AM you are out of luck. Tv operation was complicated and should have been explained by front desk staff but was not.

It was what you would expect from an older motel. Nothing great but it did the trick while we were in Gettysburg.

Colton Motel, Gettysburg

Posted Aug 6, 2014
Pros: It was close to everything we wanted to see.
Cons: The bathroom vent needs to be fixed.
The room was small and somewhat spartan. The vent in the bathroom did not work. When I went to the office for a cup of coffee in the morning, there was sugar and creamer, but no mixers. The attendant told me he would go for them later in the day.

The hotel was out-of-date, but I kinda liked it. It felt more roomy than most hotel rooms, with lots of space between the foot of the beds and the TV. The best part of this hotel was the location. It literally bordered the Soldier's Cemetery, which is a popular Gettysburg spot. It was very close to all the sites we wanted to visit.
