My wife and I stayed here in September 2011. We stayed a total of 5 nights. The hotel is located right off of US 99 north of Altoona. The hotel is all by itself in an industrial park. We checked in with no problem and stayed in room 107. The room was large and clean except for the bathtub area. This is a fairly new hotel that opened a little over a year ago. The shower surround was made out of panels of what looked like granite. The lower corners of the granite where it meets the tub have darkened where water seems to have pooled and been wicked up into the wall panels. There was nothing on the surface of the granite that I could feel but the color was there. The joint where the tub meets the wall panels wasn't sealed well allowing the water to wick up the wall panels. This is a construction issue and not a maintenance issue. One other problem was that the keycard slot for the north entrance door didn't work a day after we checked in. We arrived on a Monday. Tuesday afternoon the keycard slot stopped working forcing us to walk around to the main front entrance. We informed the front desk but the slot still wasn't fixed when we checked out Saturday.
Now, on to the good. The pool looked clean but we didn't use it. The breakfast area was large and served the usual waffles, eggs, sausage, etc. The tables were large too which is important to someone likes me who likes to read the paper as I eat. The beds were very comfortable and I slept well all 5 nights. At home, I sleep in a waterbed and have slept in a waterbed for over 30 years so getting a good night's sleep in a hotel bed is unusual. There were plenty of towels in the bathroom and the shower had a curved shower bar. Checking out was hassle free. If you don't mind driving a little ways out of Altoona, the Comfort Suites is a great choice. I paid a total of $555.70 including taxes for the 5 days.
