This is a relatively new hotel with designed to fit right in to its downtown location in this historic college town. Its amenities are totally modern. It is very clean and comfortable. They offer free breakfast and wi-fi. There is a nice restaurant, bar, and coffee bar off the lobby. Most hotels of this quality are far more expensive.

Sooo my story may not be very helpful for others given my circumstances. Basically I got a tad inebriated in the bar downstairs, (AWESOME BAR AND RESTAURANT BY THE WAY) and I needed a place to stay. I will say that the staff even at 2 am was very nice and accommodating and in the morning I could confirm that... More

Stayed one night for a college tour. Can't beat the location. Free wi-fi and free breakfast!!! It is an older hotel in a small town, so I was pleasantly surprised at the decor and amenities. One problem we did have was a seemingly stained sheet. We asked for housekeeping to change and no response. 1/2 later call back and there... More

My staff comes into Shippensburg for an event once a year. We spend very little time in the hotel, but after long days of work the food/drinks at University Grill and rooms at Shippen Place Hotel are very good. At times it is a little noisey outside (with a patio at the bar) but it is a college town and... More

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.

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.
