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...

We just got back from my 2nd worst Motel Experience in several hundred motel stays. On a trip that included a visit the Horse Curve National Historical site, we were unfortunate enough to choose the Altoona Motel 6! My first shocker came when I unlocked the room door and saw bare FAKE hardwood floors in a motel room! It was... More

I've used Motel 6 all across the States since my first trip in 1995 and I think that the remodeling has improved their quality for their budget prices. Don't expect any frills and fancy furniture, but what there is, is clean and comfortable. This property consists a 3 separate building all on one level and in conveniently located within walking...

It is very convenient from I-99 and the price is right. As long as you are not expecting any in-room amenities, you won't be disappointed. My king room had a small table and two wooden chairs, so you are not going to be lounging around in the room. Room was in the front, so I didn't see and can't comment... More

We were in Altoona over the weekend for a wedding and needed a pet friendly place to stay. After reading reviews and checking out the other pet friendly hotels in the area we chose the Motel 6 and what a great choice it was. From the lobby, to the rooms, and to grounds ,which were be landscaped when we arrived,... More
