my lovely niece got married on the same weekend that Penn State held it's graduations, needless to say, finding a hotel was hard even a couple months in advance. Motel 6 had rooms available and although a little higher priced than usual Motel 6 rooms we booked it for four nights. The room was a king bed with a table...

This Motel 6 is very nice. The rooms are clean and are a good size, the beds are comfortable and the bathroom, although small serves the purpose. The front desk personnel were very courteous and pleasant in answering any questions that we had. The location is near several shopping and dining estabishments as well as the Horseshoe Curve. Overall I...

We had been driving for 8 hours and just wanted to get into the room and go to sleep. We pulled the sheets back and there was dozens of little curly black hairs through out the sheets within one of the beds and the other bed was much better but you could see hair and a little bug underneath the...

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...

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...

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...
