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

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

We found ourselves needing a room in Altoona in December 2013. We had to visit a seriously ill friend over Christmas and who can find last minute pet care over Christmas? So we picked Motel 6 because we knew we would be able to bring our dogs along. We arrived on Christmas Day having found a great price on the... More

We were driving down south & crashed here over night. Had a great experience. Got it for a great price. Room was very clean w/updates fixtures. Very quiet. Comfortable bed. Clerk waived wifi fee for us. Laundry available. Morning coffee available; there is also a microwave if you need it. Would def stay again for a short visit.

I was really skeptical about staying here. I called the other hotels; all booked.I have to admit I was nervous about it. I was very pleasantly surprised! The rooms were so clean. Beds were very comfortable. Bathroom was very clean. We asked for more towels and the clerk at the front desk could not have been more helpful. My only... More
