They advertise on their site that the room is $49.99 a night but they charged me $59.99. They told me the Wifi was free but charged me when I checked out. The first room I checked into reeked of tobacco smoke, so they moved me to a "non-smoking" room that was almost as bad. The stench was not overpowering, but... More

If you are looking for a no frills place to sleep, this is it! Bed is comfortable enough and the room was clean but that it all you get for your $$. I thought it was a little pricey although they do give a AAA discount of @$4.

The rooms are clean and bright, and also spacious. They are decorated in a sort of institutional art deco - orange and white and chrome and black with curved modern touches. The beds are comfortable. Nothing fancy but very functional and comfortable. But, the rate is great. And the service is even better. This is a good deal. About $70... More

This is a basic hotel but it really exceeded my expectations. It is in a convenient location (with the added benefit of a Cracker Barrel restaurant within view) the rooms were clean and modern, and the pool was terrific. The staff was friendly as were the other guests.

Do yourself and your sanity a favor by not staying here. First and foremost my children were ready to change and hit the pool, while they were playing my daughter came up screaming that she'd been hurt. She climbed out of the pool with a 3 inch gash in the bottom of her foot! I looked into the pool and... More

Start of by saying it was refreshing to stay at a money saver hotel that was well lit and clean. Our room had many updated features and was very clean. Extra points for the wood floors. Overall a great hotel at a great price. Would recommend to anyone.

We arrived early Saturday morning-approx 2am- & the front desk had our room key ready. I really appreciate that because we all know how tired we are @ early morning arrivals. The room was clean, the bathroom was clean, the sheets felt clean. 2 things I didn't like: 1) The weather was incredibly humid, and it felt as though the... More

This motel6 is really clean and staff is very friendly. Would definitely come back here again. Housekeeping staff are great and always check if you need anything. I would recommend motel6 in Altoona, Pa to my friends and family. The only thing that I see that they do not have in their rooms is a mini fridge and microwave. That's... More

Pros - As the title of the review states, the rooms have been recently renovated and modernized. We particularly appreciated the laminated floors, instead of carpet, which is a breeding ground for who know's what. While the hotel is close to I-99 we didn't hear any highway noise at all. As usual, with this chain, the room was cheap and... More
