There is extremely little to like at the Motel 6 Altoona, IA. The Motel 6 in Altoona, IA has management that does not care. There is no friendliness, courtesy or graciousness among its staff. It's rooms are dirty. Don't care. It does not present you with the amenities it advertises that you are selecting to pay for. Don't care. The room is dirty. Don't care. There are bugs in the room. Don't care. WiFi is a fee then it is not working. You don't expect to pay then? Don't care. The room charge is too high considering the Motel 6 Altoona, IA is not providing what it bills you for. I know ... Staff Don't care. Find another place to stay.
I needed an economical but decent room for a recent training seminar. This Motel 6 fit the bill very well. the location was both clean and neutral smelling and had staff at the desk almost constantly. My room was clean, well prepared and comfortable. For my simple and utilitarian needs this was a good fit. When a problem arose with paperwork to submit for reimbursement (reservation through booking.com) it was the Motel 6 staff that found the solution and not booking.com...certainly not booking.com. The coffee could have been out earlier or in fact all day. I am an early riser and coffee wasn't out until after I was on my way.
The room was clean and smelled fresh. It was simple and there was plenty of counter space. The room wasn't fancy, but it was perfect for the nights stay I needed. The bathroom was very clean as well. I liked their bathtub/shower. The towels were really small and not very soft. They served their purpose.
The room was clean. If you don't need frills, this is the way to go.
clean and modern no decaf coffee or hot water for tea
Everything was perfect
The location was great. The beds were awful too springy like staying in Gramma's attic during a blizzard. The TV was an old fat back leaning terrible forward looked like it was gonna fall off . The shower rod was all wrong it needed to be on a curved rod,the bottom of the tub very slippery. No bath mat it was just a hand towel. The only ice machine we could find was in the lobby the tray under it looked a bit moldy. The free coffee tasted like 3 week old sludge. No tissues or any toiletries .
For the dollar it was a nice place. The room and bathroom were quite big. The staff was very friendly! Nothing.
I wanted an affordable place to stay near the interstate and Motel 6 fit the bill. I took the room because of price but was pleasantly surprised at how clean and up to date the room was. I would stay there again if I was passing through. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept on at at motel. There wasn't much I didn't like, would have liked a coffee maker in the room. For the price i didn't expect breakfast but the coffee would have been perfect. They did offer it in the lobby.
was a one night stay a place to lay your head. in and out on the way to someplace else. clean and close to the freeway arrived late was harder to find a parking spot thye had parkking just harder to find a spot I liked.
Very noisy location (near freeway), and very loud all night: music, foot traffic on balcony, etc. Room door was already open when I got there. Older facility in need of external update. Basic Motel 6 room on the inside, but I wouldn't stay here again.
The room was clean and had no problems. It seems like a sketchy area, didn't feel completely safe as a woman traveling by myself.
I didn't get robbed.
clean room The room was clean the bed was bad the help was fine but the exterior was filthy . The stair rails were very filthy an the whole outside area was generally "crappy"
Toilet was hard to flush without pushing down real hard. Shower u had to let the water run for 10 to 20 mins just for it to get hot. Stains on the carpet. No screen to leave your window open.
Location Cleanness of the room, no shampoo or conditioner, no iron board; iron $10 deposit. The smell of the room
It was located near a hyvee. Cleanliness could be improved.
Proximity to the airport, cheap, nice staff. The room's filth level puts your average frat house basement to shame. The police were roaming around in the morning, I assume to serve some warrants. This is definitely the type of place you'd find people with outstanding warrants hanging out.
The staff was nice, polite. Beds were awful, the ac did not pull the mold smell, or cool the room very much.
Newly refurbished I had food that needed a refrigerator and the room did not have one. No microwave either. I got bug bites on my foot.
Very clean. Newly remolded. Wifi password wasn't posted anywhere, went and asked for it and it was a bunch of numbers and I went back to my room and typed it in and it was wrong... no shampoo or conditioner in shower.
Our stay here was great. The room was very clean and the staff stayed up late to check us in. It reminded me of a Hilton, but with much better value.
Don't be discouraged by the dingy looking exterior- it was a very nice room for the price! Nice shower, plenty of outlets, amenities such as shampoo, conditioner and soap, with clean towels. Cable TV and comfortable chair. Exceptional customer service. Uncomfortable bed and rough feeling sheets. Close to the road, so plenty of noise from trucks. Some ants in parts of room.
Surprisingly nice and comfortable for the price. TV, Wifi, etc. Room as clean and as big as you'd need it to be. Pretty close to downtown Des Moines. Staff was nice, but I didn't have any problems to test them with. Would stay again. Outside of the motel and the sign makes it look very cheap and crummy (fortunately it is just a ruse and it's nice inside). Shower head was a little weird to me, (has high enough pressure but spray is pretty narrow, and I had to duck a bit).
USB and electric plugs by the bed for conveniently charging your phones and laptops. Clean and has a nice bathroom with great water pressure.
Price was right and location was close, rooms were clean and neat, definitely a no frills Mom and Pop place to stay
Nothing hated everything.Smelled like peeBed bugs. I didn't stay. I slept in my van.It was gross
It's very dirty and bed was too hard.
Location and staff was great Bed was old, shower was hard to adjust because of the way the plumbing was done, be careful very hot water.
Cheap, close to Adventureland USA. When we got to our room the toilet seat was dirty.
It was quiet. Worth the money just for that. I hate spending money on a motel to sleep and I can't get any because people are being noisy. Did not happen here. It is a throwback to the 70's. Seriously, I mean, regular keys instead of key cards.
Nothing it was nasty!! Nats everywere. Smell.bugs earwigs and nats.
it was retro style.gave me a key instead of the swipe card.it was great
the price dirty and stained beding bathroom paint peeling and the musty smell
Nothing it smelled really bad.
