2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

We were not expecting anything fancy, it was clean but we were not happy as we had booked a non-smoking room through hotel.com and when we arrived we got a smoking room. It stank bad. We went back to the front desk and stated that we were in the wrong room and that it was really smelly and we are not smokers. We were told that they were not allowed to let us have another room. The hotel was no where near busy and not many cars in the parking lot. We realized at this point we were screwed. So, for the front desk, We would give them a 2/10. Other than that, it is a cheap one nighter, it is a dated hotel, rooms and all, but we knew this coming in, we just didn't expect the total lack of flexibility from the front desk girl.

Stayed March 2013, traveled as a couple

Room was "4 star" clean at a "2 star" price. Looking for amenities in Altoona? Then look elsewhere! Looking for a basic, clean place to stay with no odd smells and an OK breakfast? Here it is! Air/Heat unit in our room was noisy and TV is 10 years old but I expect that kind of stuff.
