Quality Inn & Suites Shippen Place Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 August 2013

This is reasonably priced well maintained hotel in the middle of the downtown. The staff was polite and efficient. The beds were comfortable and everything was clean and well kept. The restaurant in the hotel is convenient but the prices are just a little high and the food delivery was slow on a slow night so, the restaurant is nothing special, order a pizza or something else delivered instead. Parking was very close, well lit and easy in and out...and free. Internet service was good too. I don't plan to return to Shippensburg soon but when I do I hope to find Shippenplace still the same for a stay.

This is an above average modern hotel in the middle of downtown Shippensberg, PA. Easy parking, nice patio restaurant attached to a lively bar. Excellent service and clean rooms. This is a relaxing stay if you find yourself in this area.

We needed a place to stay for one night. Most places off the highway were twice the price. Shippen Place had really reasonable rates - around $80 + they gave us a 10% discount for being AAA members.

Desk staff were very helpful, room was clean and well-appointed. Two beds, coffee machine, even had a mini fridge which was a big help for us. Basic, but clean and exactly what we needed. Comfy beds.

We did not eat at the attached restaurant, but it's nice that there's a place right there to grab a drink or a bite - you can also order room service.

If you're staying in the area, this place is a no-brainer.

Room Tip: we asked for a room in the back (not overlooking the street) because we heard that street view rooms...

Very clean and nice hotel. Service was very nice. Wish there would have been a pool, but we were still overall quite satisfied. It is a college town and that does mean drunk college kids so I was woken up by loud knocking and banging. If the hotel had done something about keeping those guests orderly, it would have been a perfect stay.

What a cool hotel in a great town, that is what I would say if I had to sum it up. A few of my co workers have stayed here in the past and I knew nothing about this hotel until this week. The location is good because they are right near good eating places, local bars and cool mom and pop stores. The town seems to have a lot of history that is obvious as you drive through the town which is lined with older red brick buildings. the people seem very nice throughout the town and in the hotel. The hotel has a restaurant and bar with a nice outside patio where you can enjoy food and drink as well as the inside. The hotel has some age to it, however, the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. One warning, if you do stay here request non street front room. The traffic starts at 4 am and if any emergency vehicles go down the main street that the hotel is on, it will rock you right out of the bed! As for the price of the hotel, it is right on, great price for a nice room. No pool and off site exercise equipment, however it is a nice town to walk through if you rather than a treadmill.

Room Tip: Don't take a street front room.

The staff and accommodations were great. Rooms were clean and quiet. But the food was not that great. My sister ordered a side salad (Caesar) $2.00 and I order a Dinner salad (Caesar) $8.00.

They were exactly the same size and ingredients.

I did say something to the waitress. But she did not offer any kind of explanation. Also she was new on the job.

Besides that everything was great. We stayed a total of 4 nights. Our room was kept very nice the first 2 nights. But the room attendant we had for the last 2 nights was a little lacking.

But all in all we will stay there again.

Spent the night while my daughter visited campus. I was pleasantly surprised to see how well kept everything was. The rooms are clean and the service friendly. Nice little breakfast as well. I would certainly stay here again!
