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...

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). The rooms are clean...

I stayed here due to its close proximity to Shippenburg University. The room was modern, clean, and well priced. I love giving business to locally owned places and that is why I chose Shippen Place Hotel. Enjoyed a great breakfast in the adjoining University Grille which was part of my hotel visit. Also had room service from the University Grille...

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.

We stayed here when our daughter graduated from Shippensburg University. The room was clean and the staff was friendly. Our room had a great view of Old Main. Second daughter is now attending Ship so I'm sure we'll be back!
