Good hotel downtown. The rooms are large but a little bit old-fashioned. The location is very good: walk distance to few bars and restaurants in Shippensburg: there is not so much choice for night life. The hotel bar offers a good deal for dinner or lunch. The breakfast buffet could be better.

We booked from car as we stayed there last March and it was convenient to highway. Large room, restaurant/bar on sight. Typical hotel breakfast, but it was enough to get us back on the road. Would book again.

Stayed here for a speaking engagement at the university. Parking is right behind the hotel down a small street. There is a coffee bar in the lobby as well as a full service restaurant. I had a bacon cheeseburger with fries and it was very good. They have daily specials starting around 5:00pm until 10:00pm. I checked out at 4:00am... More

I've been to Shippen Place many times over the past 15 years, having worked at the local university but needing to commute during snowy times from a distance. I found the hotel still keeping itself updated and even adding a new coffee bar, which I thought was a good addition. The rooms are standard fare and had all the regular... More

Finally went down the street to Knutes and had great service and a fun atmosphere...... They have one bartender who has to prepare all the drinks for the people at the bar and for... More

A nice change of pace from chain motels, the Shippen Place Hotel is easy to find in an interesting old town. The room was fine and up-to-date and the attached restaurant food was quite good. Service was pleasant and helpful.

Shippen Place Hotel is located in the downtown area of Shippensburg . Shippensburg University is less than 3 minutes away. You will be surprised to find this modern hotel in the old downtown area. It is clean and modern. The front desk staff are very eager to help and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable.. My... More

I stayed here two years ago and my impression was of a mediocre borderline subpar hotel. In two years this hotel has vastly improved; thus the main reasoning for my "Excellent" rating (it also helped that my rate was $77/night for a room equivalent or better than most Hilton, Marriott, etc. brand hotels). It appears that the interior (lobby, rooms,... More

This was not a chain hotel so we weren't sure what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised and pleased with our accommodations. Front Desk staff was efficient and very helpful. Breakfast, which was included, was good. My only complaint, if I may have one, is every time we we went outside to the parking lot, through the rear door, we... More

My room was right above the hotel bar and the music is blarring and people are outside and inside yelling around. This has lasted until past 1am each night!. No consideration for the other people in the hotel. The breakfast is very spars, with most of it being breads and cereal. They do have a waffle maker but no meats... More
