Great stay our third year in a row, thank-you. We hope to return next year. The food is outstanding and atmosphere is a lot of fun. The rooms are well kept and comfortable. The staff is always very courteous.

Good location near the university and the state track meet we were attending. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We had our meals at the grill and found the food to very good and very reasonably priced. The room was clean and well kept. I would recommend Shippen Place to friends and family.

I booked 2 king suites graduation weekend 2016. The rooms were great and the staff really treated us as if we were at home. The suites were prefect to have the family sit around and relax. They have a bed room and a living space area. One Bean espresso bar had amazing hot breakfast sandwiches and coffee for cheap. This... More

Great location, large rooms, good off-street parking, nice bar and restaurant in hotel, friendly staff. But: Some dust on carpet and stains on handbasin in my room. The breakfast selection was one of the smallest I've ever encountered in USA, and a cleaner was vacuuming in the dining room while diners were having breakfast, making it very unpleasant, so I...

The staff from the front desk to the in-house dining room and coffee shop were first rate. We were in town for an event at Shippensburg University and this was the perfect spot. Close to the University, nearby shops etc. We will definitely be staying again.

The Shippen place has a very friendly staff and it does a very good job with continental breakfast. It is situated in a prime location for Shippensburg, right on King street near some bars and restaurants. The quality of the rooms is just OK. It is apparent that the hotel is getting a little old, and some of the appliances... More

The Shippen Place Hotel is a perfect location for us when we travel on rt 81. We stay here once or twice a year. We usually get off the road around dinner time and will eat at the University Grille, or more recently, discovered Aroogas just down the street. ( sports bar with wings and ribs).

Enjoyed our stay while visiting Shippensburg University. Spacious room and comfortable beds allowed a good night's sleep. Hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. Dinner downstairs in the University Grille was good and convenient, if a bit loud with college students at the bar. Would definitely stay again.
