“good clean place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2011

The place is nice, couple of draw backs we travel with a small dog the place is pet friendly but you
have to take a smoking room with pets (cough cough),they have a hot tub and pool but won't let you take any drinks in the hot tub/pool area. They are close to casino and plenty of places to eat.
I would stay again but being able to have a beer in the hot tub and not smelling stale smoke all night
would be a plus.

Room Tip: Third floor is smoking rooms

Stayed just for 1 night on my way through, but I found the room and the staff to be very pleasant. Breakfast was delicious and I was satisfied with my stay. For the price - very reasonable.

I travel a lot and stay in some real dives to save expenses, but this place hit a new low. Room was badly needing an update, carpets all wrinkled up, 3 tv remotes later and still didn't have one that worked. Cobwebs in the corners of the room, Hallway stunk like cirgarettes on the non smoking floor, shower didn't work, and the front desk guy could have cared less. Never again. $80 wasted.

Room Tip: Look elsewhere and be happier

Been there twice - both times when a friend makes the reservation and thinks it's a great place. Room is small - 2 double beds ( who has double beds anymore? ) - bathroom is impossibly small - room is dirty - grossly overpriced at $80 per night for 3. I hope I never see it again.

My wife and three small children and I stayed here while traveling. The room was cleaned and smelled good. Bathroom was clean and well stocked. The beds were plenty comfortable. Staff was very helpful and knowledgable about area restaurants for our family and very accommodating. Downsides were- bathroom fan was noisy until it warmed up (4-5min), lights in lot were very bright, tv was on the small side. But the breakfast and pool were great! We would definitely stay here again!

After reading some of the reviews here, I wondered if we made a poor choice with our reservation, but were pleasantly suprized. This hotel is not "dirty, disgusting, etc." We found the rooms to be very clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The pool was very nice and the continental breakfast was good and well stocked. There were a couple negatives, the parking lot lights are very bright and shined into our window. We had to get creative with the shades to block the light. Also the room seemed damp, and the air conditioner did not clear this until morning. Otherwise we were satisfied with the stay and would stop here again.

We live near Des Moines and just wanted to get away for the weekend,we would've been better off to just stay home!!! The hotel is in need of a overall update!! We have never stayed at a Settle Inn,and will never again! I should've read the reviews and saved some money! If you like to relax in the hot tub or pool area with a beer,sorry the old hag at the front desk will come take it away from you! Never stayed at a hotel where this would be acceptable behavior from staff!! This place is so far from the norm,it might be better than sleeping in your car IDK!! So if you want to stay in Altoona stay at Adventure land Inn,if it is full move on down the road!!
