“Better than most Motel 6”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Room was clean, cozy and appeared to have had a recent refresh. This was an unexpected stay because it was on the drive from Pittsburgh and the snow got to be too much. At $38.99 on Saturday night, can't be beat.

For the price this hotel is great for a quick nights sleep. My girlfriend and I were passing through Altoona and needed a cheap place to crash for the night. We spotted the Motel 6 and decided to get a room for some sleep. The room was just completely cheap, which was expected but this went overboard. Wasn't even a nice place to stay, good things is we were only there for about 6 hours of sleep and took off again.

If you have a choice, stay somewhere else. This place is old, cheap and not all that clean.

Needed a room to stay for night. Gentleman was very helpful, price was right. Room was clean and efficient, we've stayed at higher priced motels and were disappointed with the cleanliness. Did just great in a pinch. Had a great rest, would stop here again.At $54.00 ,can't be beat for value

This motel right off i99 is awesome. I spent $63(this included tax!) and got 2 queens. It is near everything. Very clean!! No complains. Kudos to the gentlemen at the main desk. Very polite and considerate, Pool is great. Wifi is available for a $3 fee per day.

Even at $62, I feel we paid too much. The room was extremely spartan with cob webs with spiders hanging from the ceiling. The blankets were stained with holes and I'm not sure the last time that it was cleaned. The sink was unusable since the faucet was too close to the sink. The toilet had NO pressure and could not even flush the toilet paper. The ONLY redeeming quality of the hotel was that it accepted dogs (at no extra charge, which was a nice surprise), and they had no reports of bed bugs. The best part of our visit was when we left.

On par for brand, no frills, reasonably clean and well kept older single story with exterior entries, and small seasonal pool. Close to shopping, restaurants and attractions, with good freeway access. Check out Boyer Candy Company factory store, 821 17th Street Altoona PA. www.boyercandies.com/

Room Tip: Next to freeway on hillside with multiple terraced complexes. Avoid rooms on end closest to freeway...

This was a great surprise this motel 6 had swimming pool (nice), large rooms, bathtub, one story. Very clean, and nice people running it. Towels and pillows still smaller than most, but bigger than the normal motel 6 size. Good price for area
