“Well Worth the Price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

Stayed 2 nights. Staff very friendly. Property was clean and convenient. I will stay at this property again. I did not take advantage of the free breakfast each day, but it appeared adequate. Wi-Fi worked well, Easy access to the highway too.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I am pleased that you mentioned our staff being friendly. I feel that our staff is top to bottom one of the friendliest that you will ever meet. Many of our guests also mention that they appreciate the easy access to I-99 while also enjoying the quiet. We hope to see you again soon.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2013

I reviewed this hotel in Dec of 2012 and said I would try it again to see if things improved. They did to a degree. No family reunion going on this time so the stay was quieter. Pool was empty so my niece was able to actually get some swim time in. Small pool, but works for a short stay and indoors.

Some issues of course are still the same...walls seem very thin and you can hear people easily out in the hall and on the floors above you.

Bathroom still has its drawbacks. Spacious but the shower/tub leaves much to be desired. The fixtures are loose and the curtain does not contain the water well.

It is clean and the staff is friendly. Driveway is not well marked in the dark, but easy to find in the daylight. May be an odd statement, but good luck finding it in the night when no moon is out and the only lights are your headlights. :-) A lighted sign at the entrance would be a great help.

I still enjoyed the extra seating space and will probably continue to stay here when I am in Altoona. The pros do slightly override the cons.

I am happy to report that we finally received the necessary approvals for a lighted sign at our entrance. I apologize for lack of signage, but it took us a little longer than expected to get all of the necessary permits. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

We stayed here only one night but would like to have stayed more. Front desk staff very friendly and polite, very willing to help with local directions. The hotel is new and is furnished very modern. I felt like I was staying at a friends house. Bathroom vanity is modern and simple. Shower is large. Extra couch makes it easy for a family of 5. Kids enjoyed the pool. Breakfast was everything you could think of for continental with eggs, sausage, waffles. We arrived around 5PM but still had time to visit DelGrosso Amusement park (mostly for young children) as it is just a few miles away. You absolutely must see the horseshoe curve. At 10 in the morning we saw at least 4 trains in half an hour going both directions at the same time!

Room Tip: Only one side of the hotel has a view of the rolling hills. When you have small kids, the rooms jus...

I am so glad that you felt like you were staying at a friends house. We want all of our guests to feel at home when they stay with us. I am also happy that you had the opportunity to visit DelGrosso's Amusement Park. We feel that DelGrosso's is one of the finest amusement parks in the country for families. Being minutes away from the park, we have many guests in the summer that stay with us when they visit the park.

We spent one night here. The rooms were large and the bathroom had a nice vanity in it, so plenty of room in there. The breakfast was standard for a morning buffet at a hotel, but there was a large selection. We would definitely stay again if we were in the area.

A great place to stay in the Altoona area! There isn't much around, but that's okay because the front desk gave us menus and recommeded a great pizza place! The hotel is new and all furniture and amenities are new. The continental breakfast had a wide variety of food and beverages...we will be staying there again!

We booked this hotel one year in advance in anticipation of our daughter's graduation in University Park. It was about 1/2 an hour drive from the hotel to State College. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable & it was a very quiet area. The only reason I didn't give it a 5* rating is that you couldn't walk any where for dinner. There was a nice breakfast included in the price of your stay.

Room Tip: we were in 320. It was close to the elevator, we heard talking afew times, but it didn't bother...

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

My husband I stayed at this Hotel on Friday night and found it to be quite pleasant! We attended a meeting at the Blair Convention Center. The hotel location was only a 10 minute drive to Convention Center but it was out of the way enough that there was not a lot of traffic and noise. The staff at check in were quite friendly. The breakfast area was well stocked and very clean. We will definately return to this hotel for our future conferences and highly recommend it to others! The only minor issue we had were the "tiny" pillows. Although there were four (or more) for our King size bed, they were too small for my sleeping comfort.....I would have preferred a king size pillow for our King size bed.
