Due to an unfortunate roommate conflict, our son needed a safe haven while attending PSU Altoona. We had found him a new home but needed 3 weeks before it would be move in ready. I contacted Tara at the HIE and she immediately got him booked for a 3 week stay. The commute was about a 10 minute drive. He... More

I always enjoy staying at this location when traveling to Altoona. The rooms are clean, breakfast is good and the complimentary waters and snacks in the room are a great touch. Not that I use it but the in room printer is also nice. The layout of the parking lot would be my only fault.

We stay here each year because it is above average in most respects. But this year the wi fi was not satisfactory. We did a speed test and it was miserably slow. Wi fi, yes. Hi speed wi fi.....NO Meanwhile, the staff are still very friendly and the breakfast very tasty. To top that off, our King bedroom also had... More

11-2-14 This HIE has a large number of amenities not found in many of the Expresses. I stayed in 165 and it was neat, clean and quiet. The folks who run this site really have you in mind to serve your needs. They seem to have thought of everything. I found great internet service with a printer in the room,... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Altoona on our way to a Penn State football game. In State College you had a 2-night minimum - but in Altoona we could stay for just one night. It was a quick 45-minute drive to State College and our stay at the Holiday Inn Express was more than fine. The staff was... More

I was traveling for business. The hotel my company booked me was disgusting. I was sick and in the middle of a long week. It was already 8 in the evening and I needed a clean room that wasn't going to make me sicker. I left the other hotel and called the Holiday Inn Express. Ashley booked me the last... More

We stayed in a king room for one night as a stopover. Our room was exceptionally clean , the bed was very comfortable and we also had a choice of firm or soft pillows. Breakfast had a wide variety of choices and were able to get a bag so we could take some items with us on the road (bananas,... More

The staff at the hotel made an impression well before I arrived. The date of my stay was put into the system incorrectly from when I made the phone reservation. The staff member recognized the error by the group code didn't match the other other dates of the other guests. I received a call to reassure me that I they... More

The clerk at the front desk, Philip, was very conscientious, thoughtful and accommodating. He provided us with special treats, information about the area and did all he could to make our stay pleasant after a long drive.

The hotel is always clean. The rooms are excellent. The breakfast is great, and if you catch a stay on a Tuesday the Guest Reception dinner is always well done. The hotel staff from the front desk people to the cleaning staff are always friendly and have smiles on their faces. This is the only place I will stay in... More
