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

Not very professional run..... We waited an hour and 15 minutes for a table..... we had a larger group but they never even updated us....... AWFUL..... 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.

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

We booked a suite so our daughter could visit the college. The hotel is very good but could be excellent with just some attention to details. For example, the bathrooms are really too small. Then, no towel hooks on the back of the bathroom doors and one soap bar? For three people and then no shampoo/conditioner? The breakfast was lame.... More

If you are staying in shippensburg this is the best place to stay Clean rooms, good restaurant and bar. Not a ton of extras, no pool or workout area but nice atmosphere for a night stay. I don't know if there is WI FI but I did not need it

This is reasonably priced well maintained hotel in the middle of the downtown. The staff was polite and efficient. The beds were comfortable and everything was clean and well kept. The restaurant in the hotel is convenient but the prices are just a little high and the food delivery was slow on a slow night so, the restaurant is nothing... More
