Me and my boyfriend decided to stay here for a weekend to go to a Penn State game and to visit old friends. We chose to come here because of how inexpensive it was and wasnt really expecting much, but boy we were wrong. This is BY FAR one of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed at. Staff was... More

We were travelling and need a place to stop for the night. The room was large and clean. The bed was comfortable and it appears the room was recently updated. The staff was very nice. There was also a small table and chairs - ideal for eating our take-out dinner.

Clean and large bedroom. I liked the laminate hardwood flooring. Check in process was quick and stay was overall enjoyable. Close to highway and other amenities. I would recommend this hotel for any stay in the area.

If you're looking for a cheap clean motel to spend a night, this one is for you. It is very clean and has the very basic necessities in place. There in NO coffee maker, no fridge, no microwave, no toiletries, other than the bare minimum, SOAP. That's it, not even a clock radio. So if you're looking for a place... More

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.
