My husband and I have stayed at this hotel before, but it has been several years since our last visit due to my health before we could travel again... It was like "coming home"... The staff was very helpful and accommodating (This time around I needed a "handicapped-accessible room" and I was very wary of what the room would be... More

The other week we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Altoona as we were visiting the Horseshoe Curve outside of Altoona. This is the third time that I have stayed in this hotel. As a Platinum member of IHG hotels, we are entitled to an upgraded room if available. This is the third time here, and all three times... More

Stayed for 1 night to break up a long drive. Arrived at the hotel at 11pm and left at 10am so wasn't there for long but got a really nice feeling staying at this hotel. Upon arrival, the front desk colleague was really friendly, explaining the hotel and little details. He said there was water and a snack in the... More

It is in a great... More

Great place to stay in Altoona. Have stayed at other places in town before but so happy we chose the Holiday Inn Express this time. Ellen and Alisha were really helpful at check in, and when we mentioned that we planned to go see the Curve play (very fun AA baseball), they even gave us free tickets and a parking... More

I am in Altoona every other day, due to work. Our company used to make us stay in rat traps around the area. It made going out of town a total nightmare. Until now. The Holiday Inn Express makes up for it. You might want to call it " home away from home". First the front desk, they are a... More

I am a frequent guest at the Holiday Inn Express in Altoona. My work brings me here often, and at all hours of the day and night. The lobby and rooms are ALWAYS clean and smell fresh. The beds are comfortable. The kitchen amenities are great to have (microwave and mini-fridge). Breakfast is always delicious. But the best thing about... More

I stay two or three times a week and never have had a bad experience. The staff especially Ashley and Ellen are always more then willing to help and are always friendly. The rooms are well maintained and always clean. I would strongly suggest anyone to stay here.
