The hotel has average-sized rooms and the bed is fairly comfortable. Neither is extraordinary. I don't like the bathroom, which is quite small; tub and toilet in one room; sink and mirror next to the coffee machine and rather small.
The hotel is small and convenient. They provide you with a ten percent discount at several local restaurants. They have an adequate gym on -site and a whirlpool but no pool. The staff is helpful, but not particularly warm and welcoming.
The breakfast was horrible; no Belgian waffles, and the eggs were bad. However, the breakfast meats were good and at the front desk you can get fruit, a breakfast bar a bagle and cream cheese and water in a bag.
It is a great service to have a printer to attach to your computer in your room and there is no charge. wii-fii is free. Our tv was really frustrating to change the channels and the repairman just shrugged it off as the way the tvs are. The business center had a computer and some paper. That's helpful. It's close to restaurants to which you can walk, and central to many things to do in Altoona. We will return, although we preferred the Hampton Inn.
