The room was clean and comfortable. If you're just looking for a place to sleep, and won't be spending any time at the hotel, this is the place for you. The bedding was clean and the mattress was comfortable. The bathroom was also clean and stocked with sample packs of toothpaste, shampoo, etc... I also loved the tile work in the bathroom. There is also a bar on the property.
The drapes were hanging loose and shredded. There was a giant stain on the floor. The fan cover in the bathroom was missing (which is fine since the fan didn't work). The walls needed painted. The patio outside my room was scraped bare and chipping concrete. The one window was open slightly, with no crank to close it. There was absolutely NO cell signal and the WiFi does not reach the rooms. The room is also a good 10 minute drive from Altoona.
Knowing what I know now I would still stay again, but not for what I paid. If I were to set a value on the room I would say it is a solid $40 room.
