I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Altoona recently for a business trip. The staff was welcoming and pleasant. There was refrigerated bottled water and a snack waiting for me in my room upon check-in. The water was restocked for my second day of my stay - I did not eat the snack. The best part was probably the bed... More

I've stayed at several hotels for business & pleasure &this place beats many of the more expensive ones, hands down. The check in was great with friendly staff. Everything you need is in your room, including complimentary water, snacks, fridge, microwave, toiletry's, WI FI, well controlled heat/air, and even a printer if needed. The rooms are comfortable and quiet. The... More

Beautiful hotel...the nicest place that Norfolk Southern has ever lodged us! The rooms are gorgeous, the people are friendly and the complimentary breakfast is fantastic and varies day to day. They also offer a complimentary dinner every Tuesday that they don't even advertise and it is spectacular.

Stayed at the Holiday Inn this past Friday night for a visit to Penn State Altoona on Saturday. We went with another family so we had 2 rooms, each with 2 queen beds. Both families had the same experience. Front desk staff was welcoming and the room was very clean. Linens were bright white and the bed was comfy, just... More

I have been staying at the hotel for about 6 years for business. My stays are for 1 to 4 nights depending on the occasion. The staff at the front desk are just wonderful friendly people. The morning breakfast is always fresh and they have quite a variety of items. The rooms are clean and if I require anything special... More

I've been staying at the Holiday Inn for about two months now due to some traveling I've had to do for work. I've never had a better experience in a hotel. The staff is wonderful-- very accommodating and polite, reserving rooms for me at the last minute and adjusting my stay several times when I was uncertain of when I... More

Driving across the state, we were caught in a snowstorm with our little dog. I frantically used my smart phone to find a hotel in Altoona that accepted dogs and was happy to find this one (husband was driving). I would advise trying to get the hotel directly on the phone because the number I called was a call center... More

My wife and I plus our Golden Retriever were on our way to see our son in Wilkes Barre. We had to stop because of a snow storm. They were EXTREMELY accommodating to us. They even made an exception for our dog being over 40 pounds. The staff was very helpful to the point of guiding me there over the... More
