Super 8 Altoona
Ranked #7 of 10 Hotels in Altoona
Reviewed 6 January 2006

I attempted to stay at the Altoona, Iowa, Settle Inn in December 2005. First I called the number from the company website and was put on hold for 5 minutes. When someone answered she couldn't even give me directions to the place! We finally found it. When I told the person at the front desk that I had a dog, she told me there would be a $15 fee, and we'd have to be in a smoking room. This information was not on the hotel website. When I decided not to stay there because of the large fee and smoking room the woman at the front desk became very rude to me. There is a Motel 6 a block away that allows you to have dogs for free in a non-smoking room. So those of you with pets, avoid the Settle Inn!

Settle Inn offers good hospitality, a nice pool area with game machines, and a relaxing atmosphere - the continental breakfast is average but often messy - they need a staff person to manage it - items are often missing, without being replaced - the rooms are average, but comfortable - they offer discounts to traveling ministers - I have stayed at this location three times - and twice had to wait for the room to be cleaned, even though there was basically no one checked in and it was the middle of the afternoon, so I am thinking that the maid staff starts late - the front desk people are always polite and accommodating

I don't know about the regular rooms but we stayed in a THEME room for a getaway weekend. Staff very courteous and helpful. Rooms were clean. Had a micro , fridge , coffee maker. Was decorated very nice with the theme of that room and with a whirlpool. At around $125 on weekends , I think that was pretty good considering it's hard to get a descent place for $70 anymore. OK cont. breakfast in morning

We stayed in a "Theme Room" at the Settle Inn motel. The room was not customer oriented. It was not clean: The shower, the sheets, the rug, and the whirlpool. We complained in a letter. We never got a response. The price for the room was OUTRAGEOUS! Don't go there - you are not number one.
