“Clean Room - Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

We stayed here one night while visiting our daughter at Shippensburg University. I was very happy that the room was nice and clean. The staff was friendly. The pool looked great but we didn't get a chance to try it out. It was very convenient to the university. We will most likely stay here again when visiting our daughter.

We were on our way from Knoxville to Long Island and need a place to spend the night. Picked this place because it was about 7 hours from Knoxville. Hotel was clean, bed and pillows wonderful, shower good, microwave, refrigerator, flat screen tv, wi-fi, granite countertops, quiet location. Breakfast was ample, waffles good. Very friendly staff. Only one complaint, we were on the second floor near the steps and it was a little noisy for my husband. I slept through it all. Highly recommend if in the area.

Room Tip: If on the second floor, don;t stay near the steps.

We picked this BW hotel at random because it is close to the I-81. We were pleasantly surprised. The large indoor pool and spa is right at the front door beckoning you to enter and relax. Large south-facing windows provide views outside and into the lobby. There are tables, chairs, umbrellas around the pool giving the feel of vacation. The lobby is immaculate and the desk clerk welcoming. She was dusting when we arrived...just keeping busy. Hard to find help like that! I don't remember her name but she was so helpful in suggesting restaurants, telling us about our room and the hotel ammenities. Check out is noon! A family could get in a swim to help tire the kids out before hitting the road. Our room was fine. There was a fridge, microwave, safe, coffe maker, blow dryer and a small table with 2 chairs. Beds were comfortable with a few pillow choices. Bathroom was the type that doesn't appeal to us with the sink outside the bathroom. But that's just our preference.
The breakfast room is away from the lobby in a separate room. It is immaculate and again a staff person wiping up constantly and taking care of customer's needs. It was a hot and cold breakfast which I think is rare for a basic BW hotel. Coffee is good too.The breakfast room has lots of round tables with lovely red leather chairs and was decorated for Easter. Very pretty.
In the morning when we checked out, the day clerk was cleaning the windows around the pool! Just keeping busy. She was very happy, friendly and helpful. Newspapers, a quiet TV and couch made me want to sit and stay awile.
The town of Shippensburg is very pretty and offers many restuarant choices, shopping and gas. The Tollgate Restaurant served up the best scallops and salmon cakes that we've had in years.We will definatley stop there again on our way down south and I would highly recommend it.

We really enjoyed our nite stay at this hotel. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was great and the people that work there were very excellent and helpful in finding us a nice place to eat after a long day on the road. Will stop if ever we head that way again.

We used a walk-in coupon and for $50 a night we got the best.. Great place to stop for Canadians headed south. Indoor pool, hot tube, and free hot breakfast. Might even be the best place is one is going to hit the Hagerstown Factory outlets. Off the highway route 81 so it is quiet

Staying 2+ weeks in a hotel can tell you alot about the room, staff and breakfast. Never did our first impression change. We had a King for the first week and 2 dbls for the next week and both rooms were comfortable, clean and well stocked. Our beds slept better than most of the other hotels on our trip. This was the "good-bye" trip of a child to a parent so it was very emotional. The staff knew this and where very caring during this entire stay. They watched out for us. The ladies in the breakfast room were wonderful. Each morning a tasty free hot and cold breakfast was ready for the patrons. Never was anything cold and the room was clean. We didn't try out the amenities but the pool was inviting and right up front by the desk and not tucked away. The washer/dryer looked clean and vending machines well stocked. What was really amazing was the low price. This hotel is close to everything in this small historical college town. Do plan on taking time to enjoy the town's beautiful old buildings. Would stay at this hotel anytime.

Room Tip: First floor rooms are closer to all amenities and very quiet. Never knew animals were in the hotel.
