“Ok Stay”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

My wife and I stayed at this Motel 6 in Altoona. As the name suggests, this is a MOTEL. It was fairly clean as far as motels go. Rate was fairly decent, we paid around $65 for a king room. Given the choice, we would probably not stay here again only because we like other hotels better, although not sure about this particular area. But typically an extra $20 gets you something like a Comfort Inn with a discount and they include a hot breakfast and a pool.

My family travelled over the Canadian May long weekend and arrived about midnight in Altoona, and decided to stay for the night, our first choice Super 8 would not rent us a room because there were five in the group. So we made our way to Motel 6. This turned out to be an excellant move. The rate was approx $30.00 cheaper. My experiances with Motel 6 have always been the same. A clean comfortable bed, friendly staff (the girl on duty that night was very helpful) and basic no frills accomodation. For one night stays while travelling I highly recommend this chain. It is always a great combination of price and comfort. The parking lots are always well lit and the room is basic no frills accomodation for a great price, as a budget minded traveller this is what I am looking for.

Fast check-in with a very friendly clerk who went out of his way to be helpful. Room was comfortably sized, with the usual smallish motel bathroom. Amenities were all there, and the entire thing was scrupulously clean. Only drawback was that when I visited their internet was down, so there were no wi-fi rooms available.

We travel often, and we usually stay far away from 6's. I have to say this hotel was very clean and comfortable. Staff was probably the best staff we have dealt with in a long while. It feels like a privately owned property not a national chain. TV stations were limited at best. No Disney Channel. Internet is NOT free and not availble in all rooms. We had to move rooms to get access as well as pay $3 a day for an access card per computer. Not too bad as it was still cheaper than any other place in town. No microwave or fridge which is a must have with our family. We stayed 3 days until we needed to move on. Very clean!

I always enjoy staying at Altoona Motel 6. The room was clean and shiny, linenes clean and dthe motel was very quiet for a Friday and Sturday night. No frills but it isn't a 4 star motel.
