Reviewed June 27, 2013

You get what you pay for, hotel smells of smoke (non-smoking rooms are in the basement) rooms are in need of TLC. The free breakfast was terrible. I would only recommend if you need a place to sleep for the night and you are not picky.

Pros
- Its cheap, $70/night
- Staff was really nice
- Its right of the Interstate so its easy to get to but its a little isolated from everything else.
- Plenty of parking

Room Tip: The non-smoking rooms are on the lower level.

Stayed at the Super 8 Motel Altoona for 1 night in May 2013 (check-in Thursday / check-out Friday).

Pros:

- The location - Easy access from I 99 - US 220 - Good option if staying while travelling somewhere else (we checked in at 2AM and checked out at 8 AM)

- Free in-room WI-FI

- Price was reasonable at $67.50 USD + tax.

Cons:

- No swimming pool - Not a good option for kids if travelling with them. (this did not impact our stay as we were only there as a rest stop)

- The advertised free breakfast is a bit sparse - Don't expect much other than cereal, toast and yogurt.

- There were a few guys smoking weed outside of the hotel when we arrived. They were actually quite polite and offered to hold the door but not exactly the type of welcome we were expecting. I acknowledge this is largely out of the control of the hotel but the low price likely brings this type of clientele.

Overall, The Super 8 Motel Altoona served our very specific need

tips:

- Use your CAA/AAA card to save 10% on the room.

- I would rate shop and compare against the Courtyard Marriott -- If reasonably close in price, I would recommend the Courtyard instead.

- They automatically charge you a $1 fee for a hotel safe that you need to ask them to refund.

New Super 8 was very comfortable and affordable. Fitness room was up to date. Chose because of price and location. I did have an issue on a Saturday 6/8/13 when individuals were smoking but did not say anything until next morning.
