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

The Shippen Place Hotel was a very convenient hotel for our visit to the University. We were welcomed in a pleasant manner even when checking in late at night. The room was spacious and clean. This is not a fancy hotel but a perfectly comfortable , clean, friendly place right in the heart of Shippensburg. I would happily stay there... 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. Asked for a small town map to walk a little and despite having one from the chamber of commerce posted in the entrance, they had no other... More

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. The room was nice, clean, and comfortable. You can't ask for much more. We visited the bar and restaurant in the hotel and found both of them... More

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

The Shippen Place was appealing because it was off the main thoroughfare from Gettysburg. We had never stayed in Shippensburg before but the price and the reviews were great for the hotel. We were not disappointed. We booked through Expedia and had no issue with the reservation upon check in. The lobby, room, and breakfast area were all clean and... More

I spent on night in the Shippen Place while attending a conference at the university. The lobby is beautiful. The staff was great--there was a small town feel that I liked. I had a king suite--an upgrade because they were out of regular rooms. The room was comfortable but not opulent--this is not a major spa hotel. There was a... More

We stayed here the night before picking our son up from a seminar at Shippensburg U. The hotel is on King St, the main street through the small town. We were on the 4th floor facing the street; turned in at 10:30 on a Saturday night and slept soundly all night. The room was large and it as well as... More

Wow, I stayed here one night and felt more rejuvenated than at a spa. First, let me say, I spent the entire day unloading my son into Shippensburg University in the 98 degree heat. It was just the two of us up 5 flights of stairs for over 2 hours. After he was settled I checked in. Immediately the front... More
