Our rooms seemed recently remodeled but smelled of smoke. The floors are wooden and the bed spreads are white, which makes me more comfortable because I can see stains/dirt easier than a paisley one. The bathroom had a tiny bit of mold on ceiling but that's pretty normal for a value motel. The lady a the front desk was so... More

For the area and price the hotel was great. The front office stay was great and the kids love the pool area. We spent one day at the pool and the other day at Lake Mt park. It was a great time with lots of places to shop and eat near by.

For some reason Altoona is an expensive town to stay in vs other areas. Motel 6 offered a great rate for the area. The room must have been very recently updated. The entire bathroom was remodeled as well as all of the furnishings in the room including the flooring.Flat screen TV. Comfy bed. The grounds were kept very clean as... More

The friendliness of the check-in staff was very nice, and she gave us some inside information about Lakemont Park. As for the room itself, as commented by others, the non-smoking room that I stayed in also smelled like smoke, but it was not as bad. But, the sleep quality was great, and the beds were very comfortable. My friends and... More

I stayed here while in town for an event with my dog. Rooms are very basic, but clean. The bathroom was tiny, which didn't bother me, but the shower head was so low I'm not sure how my 6'2" husband would have been able to shower if he had been with me. Easy access for the dog and plenty of... More

This was our first time at a Motel 6. We were in the area for a dog event. This hotel is dog friendly. The laminate floors were nice & much better than carpet. The room was clean. A/C was a bit noisy. We stayed two nights & there were no issues. Desk staff were friendly. The area to walk the... More

Hi folks. I stay in a lot of hotels and I know what to look for. Your choices are limited in this section of Pennsyl-tucky. No offense to my dear Kentucky friends. When you book a Motel 6 you really expect a basic room. But you do expect the basics: like decent pillows. The staff was actually friendly, kind, and... More

Thought I would give this place a try after hearing that it was "transformed". The rooms were more spartan and sterile than a college dorm room. Tiled floors, a grade school-style table & chair, terrible bed, & tv...that's it. The bathroom was like a closet. The pool was locked up (all 3 entrances) but the lights were on and everything...

My experience at the Motel 6 Altoona was a very pleasant one. The balance of price / services provided was just about perfect. The basic cable option includes HBO, local channels, and the like. The room was clean and had the most you could expect for $50 a night. The only downside, is that for high-speed internet, you have to... More
