We usually stay another place in Altoona, but because of the Penn State game everything was sold out. This is an EXTREMELY basic hotel, very sparse, no carpet on the floor (which is ok), no comfy chair to sit in, no microwave, fridge, coffeepot, no little shampoo. Seemed very clean, shower worked well, Room was relatively quiet, considering highway is... More

This hotel room was a normal size of two queen beds. Had hardwood floor and felt clean. Easy to check in and out. It's a motel with every room having access to the sidewalk and parking spot. It seem like a lot of people coming and going, perhaps workers or travelers. It was the cheapest place I could find and... More

Stayed here for a weekend trip since other places were sold out. The rooms are ok and clean considering the price. The bed wasn't the most comfortable though. I was disappointed with the price for wifi and that conveniences like shampoo are not provided.

Stayed here as a quick overnight stop on our way Baltimore to catch a cruise. Had been here before and had a pleasant stay. This time we found dispite the recent upgrades the motel was going downhill. The grounds were not well kept and the parking lot was dingy. Our room door was scratched and chipped and our door lock...

Hotel is kind of in a weird location, reasonably priced, comfortable beds, staff could be a little more friendlier. Pool isn't that big so it's not worth really going swimming in. Rooms have a weird smell to them. Half the time the key didn't work to get into the room, there was like a certain way you had to insert... More

Our rooms seemed recently remodeled but smelled of smoke. The floors are wooden and the bed spreads are white, which makes me more comfortable because I can see stains/dirt easier than a paisley one. The bathroom had a tiny bit of mold on ceiling but that's pretty normal for a value motel. The lady a the front desk was so... More

For the area and price the hotel was great. The front office stay was great and the kids love the pool area. We spent one day at the pool and the other day at Lake Mt park. It was a great time with lots of places to shop and eat near by.

For some reason Altoona is an expensive town to stay in vs other areas. Motel 6 offered a great rate for the area. The room must have been very recently updated. The entire bathroom was remodeled as well as all of the furnishings in the room including the flooring.Flat screen TV. Comfy bed. The grounds were kept very clean as... More
