After booking with Orbitz and travelling 700 miles to get to Altoona to watch Penn State play the next day in State College we arrive to find out that our reservation had been cancelled. They would have room for us that night, but the following night we were out of luck and would need to find somewhere else. Since Penn State is the big draw for hotels in Altoona (45 minutes away) there were no rooms at the inn, or any other for that matter. Our only alternative was to book a room in Harrisburg, PA for the following night. Harrisburg is twice the distance away and it was exhausting to drive 1.5 hours following an all day experience exploring the campus and town. Not to mention the Homecoming game in freezing conditions with freezing rain. Thank goodness the game started at 3:30, we made it to the hotel by 11:00. If it were a 7:30 or 8:00 game we would have been driving until 4:00 in the morning. The room we stayed in the night they had available was below average. Very old mattresses, not dirty, but certainly not clean room, staff was friendly, but also lied about how they were booked full that evening. It was very clear by the 4 cars in the parking lot that night and the following morning that they were not overbooked. They may not have been the following night either, but they were clear they would not allow us to stay. Horrible experience and will not stay again.
