“Truly A Comfort”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

My cousin recommended this hotel, saying it had an excellent reputation. The property is immaculate, the hot tub was hot (not luke warm), the complimentary breakfast was excellent with a view out onto a patio and down to the river that runs along the back of the property. The room was quiet; we did not have any noise from the hall or parking lot. Everyone on the staff was very friendly and most helpful. The entire establishment is non-smoking. The only downside—they do not allow pets.

Room Tip: Just tell the person at the desk what your preferences are (first floor, near the pool, close to bre...

We have been staying at this Comfort Inn at least 15 nights per year since it opened 12 years ago. Unfortunately, we have set our standards for Comfort Inns by this hotel and we are often disappointed that we don't get such great service. Ever person is polite, friendly and treats us like family. The rooms have always been spotless, breakfast well presented, the pool clean and there is nothing that is too much of a bother for the staff. I hope we are half as good as guests as they are as hosts.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side of the hotel have a nice view of a stream.

We liked everything;

Clean
Affordable
Quiet
Free wifi in all rooms
Long bathroom counter--plenty of space for his toiletries and mine
Complimentary hot breakfast
Lovely river abuts hotel property; guests can sit enjoying the view, flowers and trees, on benches or at tables provided by hotel
Super friendly and courteous service
Marzoni's Restaurant in same parking lot as hotel serves great food! Try the crispy wings with one of their kicking margaritas. Made dinner very convenient.

If we pass through Duncansville again there is no question we would stay here

We booked the day of, so weren't really expecting much for the price. Room was huge, lovely and clean, nice grounds, everything worked. Breakfast was very good, well stocked, actually had cream for my coffee (can't do the non-dairy creamer thing - bleck!). Staff at the desk and in other areas were pleasant and helpful. Would recommend it :)

We have stayed at this Comfort Inn in Duncansville for several years now when visiting family in the Altoona Area, so we figured it was time for us to review it. This Comfort Inn is simply outstanding! The customer service clearly makes it stand out above the rest. The employees are always pleasant, helpful, and eager to go the extra mile. The rooms are fantastic and always are pristine in cleanliness and appearance. We recently stayed for two nights and the housekeeping was phenomenal, even replacing the microwave popcorn sample for a second night. The hotel staff might wonder if these little, insignificant things really make a difference to their customers. We would tell you that these things are exactly what separates this Comfort Inn from the others. The breakfast in the morning is great with extra seating in the Allegany Room when it’s available. We used the pool with our children and they loved it. Again, the pool area is very clean and inviting. We always have a first-class experience when staying at the Comfort Inn, Duncansville.
The only item that kept us from giving it a five-star rating was the hot tub. Having stayed at the hotel for a number of years, they used to have a great hot tub with powerful jets. Recently, they had to replace that tub with a new one as we imagine the old one no longer worked properly. The new hot tub was okay. However, the main jets never worked and the water was warm, but lacking just a degree or two more that would be soothing. I have read previous posts on here that the inoperable hot tub is due to customers not understanding how it works. We have to say, while we are not hot tub experts, we certainly have been in enough hot tubs to determine how to operate them and tried many times to start the main jets. Previous comments from the management on Trip Advisor suggest that a sign was going to be installed so customers could better understand how to use the hot tub. We saw a sign that stated that if the water was below the skimmer to please notify the front desk. The water was never below the skimmer and it still did not function properly. We would encourage the hotel to see if the new hot tub is still under warranty and determine what the issue is so all the jets work not just the water filtering ones. In the end, it is just a hot tub, we know. However, from reading other posts on here, it appears that it is the one area that continues to be mentioned as an issue with this Comfort Inn in an otherwise superior property with an amazing reputation.

Please know that I am continuing in my efforts to determine what can be done to alleviate the issues that have been expressed regarding our hot tub.

Normally Comfort Inn is a pretty safe bet, but this time didn't go as planned.

Pros: Sink was inside the bathroom with lots of counter space. Room was spacious and had a nice flat screen tv with lots of channels, a microwave and a fridge. Breakfast was well stocked at 7:30.

Cons: There was a dirty washrag laying on my sink when I walked in. The room was so damp that my bedding and towels were wet. This means I froze all night even with the heat turned up to 78. There was a hair hanging from the clean towels that clearly wasn't mine. There was only ONE tissue in the tissue box, had to use toilet paper. There was some type of filthy stain with stuff stuck to it on the top part of the comforter. Had to fold it down and wrap the sheets around it so it wouldn't touch my face. I was just too tired from driving all day to deal with getting all this crap corrected. Seems like the cleaning staff is pretty lazy.
