This location, has undergone the Motel 6 Update/ Reset. I have stayed at numerous Motel 6 locations throughout the country since the 80's. This location in Altoona is nice and clean. From the road perspective, it is definitely older, as it is a One Story Shotgun design, but if you can get over the Motel 6 stigma of cheap, it is a very decent location otherwise. The gentleman working the desk the evening we arrived, was nice and courteous, as was the staff working the AM shift upon checkout. The bedding was comfortable, and was clean. Not a bug in sight, nor a sign of dirtiness anywhere. The room was equipped with a 32" LED TV, and though the channel selection is limited in Altoona, it was nice to be able to watch something clearly, while getting my eyes off the road. Accessibility wise, this location is about a 1/2 Mile off the main roads in Altoona, and the entrance appears a bit deceiving, as there is a residential house at the driveway, but otherwise it is fairly easy to find. If you are traveling with pets, this location is definitely pet friendly. Yes, you need to disclose that you have pets with you at check-in, but that is the only piece of information they need. Wi-Fi was optional for a $5 Fee for 24 Hours. Being that I had data to use, I just turned one my devices into a secure hot-spot and utilized that for Wi-Fi. Thus, I have no experience with the Wi-Fi signal. If you are on the road, and need a comfy bed to sleep in for the night, I definitely recommend stopping at this location. Whenever we come back through Altoona, I will be staying here again. Towels were a bit small. I'm a tall gentleman, and it would have been nice to have longer towels for drying off with. Texture of towels were not rough. I've used sandpaper towels before, and these were definitely softer than sandpaper.
Not bad price. Convenient location to bars, restaurants, shopping centers etc. no carpet I prefer the hardwood floors. Staff was nice. Room was super minimal. Limited tv stations. No microwave or fridge. Not alot of lighting. No shampoo Etc in shower have to supply your own.
I was very impressed. For the price we paid, we did not expect so much for so little. The room was nice and clean.
Refrigerator. Bathroom was in good shape and clean. Worn out mattress. The room carpet wasn't clean. Limited parking. No place to walk to for dinner.
Close to what I wanted to see. Motel's hallway smelled of smoke. My room was a non-smoking room surrounded by smoking rooms. My room smelled like a smoking room. My bathroom sink was clogged up. In bathroom found cloths left behind by previous occupant. AC didn't work well.
The easy access to the Penn State game! - Friendly and Clean N/A
Friendly man at front desk. The fact that the property looks like the "Bates Motel" (inside AND out) isn't his fault, I suppose... The rooms were clean enough. The temperature in the room when we arrived was 60 degrees! "No problem", I thought, "I'll just crank the thermostat." 4 hours later, the paltry emanations from the baseboard heater got the room to around 68 degrees. Unacceptable!!! Everything is horribly outdated and done to the bare minimum. Don't rent a room here unless 1) it's the last available one within 200 miles, or 2) you're only going to be using it for an hour or so.
Ease of check in and check out was great. Loud TV from the room next door til almost 2:00AM then snoring!!! We had to get up very early the next morning and did not get much sleep at all. Not the motels fault. Thicker walls would've been a God send!
If you're in this area and need a place to sleep, this is it! great tv, warm room, quiet area. front desk very friendly. shower head sprayed so hard it got the floor wet!
The courtesy of the persons that attended me and the kindness. I checked in to just get the key then when I returned from groceries shopping and walked in the room it was very clean and smelled really nice everything perfect... Will definitely come back NA
The room was clean. And the staff was friendly. I needed untensils to eat and they happily provided me with it! n/a
Cleanliness was adequate and basic amenities were met. The cable TV offered many channels. There is a convenient diner across the road. No updates done, bathroom lighting was inefficient. Hot water slow in reaching faucets & A/C wasn't operational but not needed at the time of my visit. The plug in air freshener was overpowering, once removed to a drawer I had to open door to air out room
Nothing, we drove up and immediately decided not to stay there Location, layout, age, we did not stay there
As others have mentioned, the strong smell of whatever room freshner used is way too strong. It caused my wife to have a migraine and it created sinus problems for me. Couldn't keep window open due to traffic noise, water slow to turn hot in shower/sink
Convenient for me. Price TV needs upgraded ...bathroom needs to be remodeled.
Location to Stste College. Comfortable bed, good size room with mini-frig. Way too strong odor from disinfectant used in bathroom. Slow, poor wifi connection. Neighbors smoke outside the romm thus polluting the air (wafts into your room) and are too loud.
