We stayed here on the suggestion of a family member, who always stays here during Fall Carlisle. It is about 30 minutes from the Carlisle Fairgrounds, apparently not near where everyone else goes, as we did not run into much traffic for a Friday night. We had a suite in the hotel, which was reasonably priced, and requested only to... More

I recently stayed at the Shippen Place Hotel in Shippensburg, PA. I haven't been back to Shippensburg since 2000, when at the time I also stayed at this hotel. The hotel was renovated in 2012, and it's by far the best, and in my opinion, only place to stay in Shippensburg. A quick look at reviews of the other two... More

Stopped at this hotel during my travel to NY. It was over the holiday weekend and nothing was opened. Hotel was clean and bed were very comfortable. Wish they had the restaurant opened or that the snack machine could take dollar bills. I called a delivery place that was in the hotel guide but they stated they no longer delivered... More

My family and I stayed there this weekend. The hotel is conveniently located in downtown Shippensburg. Our room was clean, spacious and just above the terrace where they featured live entertainment until 10 p.m. Not a deal breaker, but something to note. Parking spaces are tight, especially if you drive an SUV. I didn't like the food at the University... More

The Shippen Place Hotel was where we stayed when my son attended the Blue Chip football camp at Shippenburg University. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very friendly. It is conveniently located within miles of shopping areas and restaurants. We really enjoyed this hotel and may return just for a quiet weekend away.

This is a very nice place in a quaint small downtown. Great rooms, very clean with higher end furnishings. Bathroom is a bit small but manageable. The restaurant food is not up to the prices - OK They have a pub on site which is excellent and there is outside seating which is great. Also very good secure parking. We'll... More

Hotel room was great. Clean and spacious. Location on the main drag was convenient. It was quiet at night and the bed super comfortable. Waiting for the but, right? But service was lacking.

This is a nice, well kept hotel in the center of town that is within close walking distance to many things and places to eat. The front desk staff were friendly and efficient.

I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived at our hotel. Shippen Place is a clean well appointed and reasonably priced hotel with continental breakfast a restaurant and room service. ..which is almost unheard of these days. It was everything we could hope for in a hotel including the price. Would definitely stay there again
