They have remodeled and it looks quite nice for the price. It is one of the lowest priced motels we've stay at. They give an AARP discount also. The furnishing is spares but functional, they have new flat screens TV's. They have always had a friendly and efficient staff. I will stay there again and have done so for years.

Stayed at this hotel for the last couple of years while visiting State College. It was a pleasant surprise to get a completely updated room this time. It appeared everything in the room was recently updated including the bathroom. The only thing that would make it better would be free Wi-Fi.

If you are reading this review, it means you may have some skepticism about making a reservation at this Motel6 motel. Trust me……you won't be disappointed at all as long as you don't expect this motel to match up to a Marriott, Doubletree, Radisson, Hampton, other upscale hotel. You are trying to compare apples to oranges. I too was skeptical... More

The motel lacked amenities needed for families but it was a nice 3 day stay. Our room was reasonably clean but the sheets felt rough. The staff was friendly and very accommodating but I still could not get wifi in my room. It was pretty quiet for a weekend and the pool was nice and clean. Overall, I would defo... More

BAD, BAD, BAD cigarette smoke in room. Two ashtrays, plus bad, bad smell of cigarette smoke. Thought I had time-traveled back to the 1950s. Motel 6, it's the 2010's and people want non-smoking options! Receptionist told me about the corporate policy, then tried to spray the curtains, but it was too little, too late. Corporate Motel 6, you should be... More

I would highly recommend this hotel. It IS a Motel 6, so don't expect a coffee pot in your room, a blow dryer, nor a refrigerator or microwave. But the staff is very nice, the rooms are clean and the pool is great. Right by the mall and strip mall, so the location is great. I DO wish they'd give... More

The Altoona Motel 6 appears to have been recently updated. While the furnishings are a bit spartan, they were quite adequate for my needs. I also like these single story motels where you park right in front of your room. The grounds were clean and the staff was very friendly. The location was ideal for traveling to the areas I... More

The most signicant note: this motel updated its rooms and put in laminate flooring. I can't express how clean it was! This was the first motel that I have stayed that didn't have carpeting and now I cannot understand why all of them haven't switched! It is an older motel that was updated. The only things to note were a... More

Motel 6 can have a bad wrap because low prices many times means less than desirable clientele. However, this Motel 6 was great. Due to lack of room availability in the Altoona area for our weekend of travel we did not have many options. I read the great reviews on several websites and took the chance. It was well worth...
