This hotel was the best rate in the area for our Saturday night stay. Loved being in town. Our room was clean, beds were very comfortable. The air conditioner worked very well and was quiet. One Bean has great coffee.

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...
