We found ourselves needing a room in Altoona in December 2013. We had to visit a seriously ill friend over Christmas and who can find last minute pet care over Christmas? So we picked Motel 6 because we knew we would be able to bring our dogs along. We arrived on Christmas Day having found a great price on the... More

We were driving down south & crashed here over night. Had a great experience. Got it for a great price. Room was very clean w/updates fixtures. Very quiet. Comfortable bed. Clerk waived wifi fee for us. Laundry available. Morning coffee available; there is also a microwave if you need it. Would def stay again for a short visit.

Beds were very comfortable. Bathroom was very clean. We asked for more towels and the clerk at the front desk could not have been more helpful. My only... More

Never, ever stayed in such a motel in this price range that comes close to comparison... Room was unbelievably clean, spacious and well appointed. Best 55 bucks I ever spent on a room. (Room 321). Highly recommended.

I had stayed at this hotel many times in the past because my company used them. The police in Altoona and Logan Twp are VERY familiar with this place. I was recently there in February 2014 to review it for my company as it was up for contract with us again. What I found was dirty rooms. I moved the... More

Our room was recently updated and very nice. Decor is "minimalistic", clean lines, simple and it was immaculate (important to me), spacious (king room) and comfortable. It provided everything we needed. Bath and sink are separated, a nice feature. The clerk at the desk was extremely accommodating, even offered to share his crackers when my friend heated soup.

The beds were comfortable, the room lacked amenties though no tissues, toliet seat cover, or alarm clock, tv had horrible sound( This wasn't a huge deal just rather strange for a chain hotel)....

There was one room left at this motel - we took it. We stayed here a few year's ago under a similiar sitiation so we knew what to expect. Like most say it's needs... More

The Motel 6 in Altoona, PA is consistent with many others in the chain and adequate for a nights stay. The property is anything but fancy, providing no frills whatsoever. However, the rooms are large and, most importantly, clean. Located just off of I-99, the property is well lit and easy to find in the dark. Unlike many others in... More
