The staff is nice and they tried their best to be helpful, but people can only work with what they've got and the staff at this Motel6 don't have the ability to make the actual hotel any better than it is. The wi-fi was slow and we had issues parking our RV (even though we called ahead to make sure... More

Ok first off let me start off by saying that you get what you pay for. My room was $45 a night so you can't expect it to stand up to a hotel that has $150 rooms. For the price not bad. Just some items I noticed. Cigarette burns in the comforter. Some sort of stains on the sheets (but... More

I had to take a last minute trip to PA with my dog. They gave me a room with a king bed and a laminate floor. I was afraid of outside noise as the highway (99) is next to the motel, but I slept fine. The front desk staff was very courteous and helpful. The room and bathroom were very... More

After a brief search, this turned out to be one of the cheaper options for overnight lodging in Altoona. Honestly, I was pretty apprehensive about staying here because of its location. To get to the parking lot, I had to drive behind a strip mall, up a back alley, through someone's yard, around a forest... you get the point. It... More

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
