We wanted to plan an overnight stay in Altoona for my daughter's 17th B-day and needed a motel close to Adventureland. There isn't much to choose from in Altoona, but if you want something priced decently and don't want to pay over 100.00 a night just for a fancy pool, this is the motel for you.
I didn't pick the best weekend, Odyssey of the Mind was in Central Iowa, so the motel was over run with kids, but with the excellent staff, that only made a difference when wanting to use the pool, (which just isn't big enough for more than 6 people).
Check in went smoothly, (cookies available as desk, yummy), and the room, though it wasn't fancy, was very clean and comfortable.
All staff members were great! Friendly and very service oriented.
At breakfast, items were continually stocked, and the variety offered made for a good breakfast no matter what your food of choice may be.
I would definately stay again.

The staff was just awesome - very friendly & helpful with everything. When we were tired after our visit to Adventureland, it was so nice to pull out of the Exit of Adventureland right into the entrance of the hotel. For breakfast we had a choice of cereal, belgain waffles, toast, bagels, donuts, fruit, biscuits with sausage gravy, coffee, milk, & juices. The hottub was very relaxing & the kids loved the pool.

Even though I never knew what time the Night time snacks happened, we were never told what time those were taking place (may have still been at Adventureland if they made some announcement or whatever).

But I would DEFINITELY recommend this place to all travelers & visitors!!!!

Good Job Heartland Inn & it's employees at the Altoona, IA location!!!
