We went to the Carlisle Classic Car show and Auction in Carlisle, PA. Stayed at the Shippen Place Hotel. it was about a 20 minute drive to Carlisle. Prices were very reasonable. Hotel was very clean. Employees were very gracious and helpful. Parking was a little difficult as there didn't seem to be enough spaces for all guests. Nice menu...

The university town of Shippensburg is just a mile or two off I-81. We were heading north from Florida and wanted a change from the typical motel at the interchanges along the highway. This hotel and the town of Shippensburg were a great choice. The main street, East King Street, has not only the hotel (with the BEST restaurant, the...

Nice clean place. Staff could be a little more professional at front desk. Came in on a late Saturday night, and the place was very loud and crawling with college students down around the bar and grill located in the lobby. Good place for the money. If it wasn't for the price I would give a lower rating.

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.
