“Excellent place to stay, hot breakfast, comfy rooms. One problem.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

My family spent six nights in the Hampton Inn in Altoona, and my review would be a five except for the hot tub breaking on our second day. It was not repaired for the duration of our trip, and part of our reason for selecting this spot was the hot tub to combat the freezing temperatures. Other than that, and I am not sure the hotel could do anything about the motor burning up in the middle of the holidays, this was a great place to stay as we visited the city we are preparing to move to (The indoor heated pool just wasn't warm enough for me). The staff was very courteous, the rooms were so clean, the beds and pillows so comfortable. The complimentary hot breakfast changed every morning and typically featured an omelet, meat, potatoes, biscuits, bagels and other breads, fresh fruit, juices, etc. The selections of hot tea and coffee were available 24 hours, and I had withdrawals from the robust coffee after leaving :) The local paper was complimentary a couple of days during the week, which enabled us to get info about our new location, but USA Today otherwise was free every day. The location is excellent. A Cracker Barrel (not my cup of tea) is in the parking lot, Champs, a sports grill, was also in the parking lot and was an excellent spot for us to catch bowl games. The Logan Valley Mall was in walking distance, but it was too cold to walk. Easy access to I-99 and so many other things we wanted to see and do.

Room Tip: This hotel does not have queen-size beds, but the full-size ones were adequate for our family.

I apologize for the hot tub as the part needed to be ordered and unfortunately it was over the hotel period. I am very happy that you were able to enjoy our continental breakfast.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

Stayed 3 nights between Christmas and New Year's at this facility. The hotel staff were all very pleasant. The lobby and breakfast area were recently renovated and have modern Hampton Inn decor. The pool/fitness facilities were nice. We stayed in suite that had a wonderfully quiet heating/AC unit and was recently refreshed with some new furnishings, but the lighting was dim and circa 1980. The sofa bed had clearly seen better years, was bent, and should have been replaced as part of the renovation. On the second and third night my son slept on an air mattress lent to us by our family rather than sleep with Mt. Everest poking him in the back (his words). Also, be forewarned that the walls in this hotel are very, very, thin and seemingly have little to no sound insulation. We were at a quiet end of the hall so this issue was mitigated for us. Overall, it was a fine place to stay, but ask for a recently renovated room away from other guests (to offset the thin walls), check the sofa bed before unpacking, and be prepared to get on your hands and knees to plug in your chargers.

Thank you very much for staying with us, I appreciate the business. I am glad that you were able to enjoy our pool and the amenities. I apologize for the state of the sofa bed. We are going to be starting our guest room renovations in late February which will encompass a complete refresh of the rooms with all new furnishings, furniture, carpeting, draperies as well as a new lighting package. We are very excited to have our guest rooms renovated to match our newly renovated and beautiful lobby area.

I hope that you will come stay with us again in the not too distant future.

Kind Regards,

The room was very nice, very clean. The pool was "walk-in warm" and the whirlpool was great to work out the tense muscles after a long day of driving. Being next to a mall and right off the freeway could be good, but not at Christmas time. It took about 20 minutes to get off the freeway.

Thank you very much for choosing to stay with us at our property! I am very happy that enjoyed using our pool and whirlpool. As we are located directly accross from the mall, the traffic does get very busy at the intersection.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday season and best wishes for the new year!

Can't go wrong at the Hampton Inn Altoona. Fresh, Clean, friendly, great complimentary breakfast, strong internet service which is great for me for business. Extremely comfortable bed. Flexible for late checkout which was great since I needed to be on a conference call which ran beyond the checkout time. I've stayed at this hotel several times for business travel and it's consistently excellent.

Employees were warm and welcoming, and also very accommodating. Also very professional and quick to provide a great service. I needed a package shipped out last minute, and they were more than happy to help out and ship it out for me. Also forgot a toothbrush, and they provided a full bag with all the basics... with a smile! Some great people work here! Victoria is awesome!
