We were visiting Shippensburg University, and needed a place to stay that was inexpensive, and convenient. Based on price, reviews, and location, the Shippen Place Inn seemed to be a great fit for us. The hotel was nice, nothing fancy, but fine for one night. We arrived around 9:30 on a Friday night, and could tell we were in for...

We stayed at Shippen Place Hotel on March 10, 2017 while in town for an event. It was during spring break, so the town and hotel were quiet. The location is in the middle of town and offered free parking behind the building. The desk staff was friendly and helpful. The lobby and public areas were warm and clean. Our...

We had an overnight stay at this hotel. What we loved most is that it had a good bar and restaurant attached. After a long day on the road, we appreciate not having to drive somewhere for dinner. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The room was large, clean and comfortable. Would stay here again if in the area

When I stayed here on Sunday, January 29, 2017, the restaurant was closed, so breakfast was delivered to our room which was nice. Kind of wanted an evening snack/drink, but oh well, we made due. That said, the hotel was neat and clean and the beds comfortable. You can hear road noise in the room (and we were on the...

Our king suite was very clean and well-appointed including a fridge, microwave, coffee maker, tub, and a very comfortable bed. We stayed several days and were able to experience very helpful service first-hand from several staff including the ladies at the front desk and with room-service delivery. While the hotel did not have a fitness room they did give us...

The people were friendly, polite. and helpful. It is down town with a lot of parking in a lot behind it. We went there for a party and the food that was served was very good. We also ordered sandwiches from room service and they were also very good and cooked to your lioking.
