Reviewed 17 November 2013

I had business to take care of, outside of Altoona, Pa and decided to spend the night at the Holiday Inn Express for a couple of nights. Upon checking in, the hotel staff at the check in desk was very nice and friendly. The room was not too big nor was it too small, it was just right. I did find it interesting that the bathroom sink was not inside the bathroom but on the left as you enter the room. Breakfast was surprisingly very good. They had eggs, sausage, pancakes, bagels, etc. and plenty of coffee. There is also a washer and dryer which you could use. Next to the washer and dryers are vending machines filled with sodas, water and juices. Everyone, including the cleaning staff was very friendly. Honestly, I did not expect much when I first checked in, but my stay was better than first anticipated. Across from and around the hotel are plenty of restaurants, shopping, etc.. In fact, you can walk easily to several restaurants and the small mall across the street.

The rooms are comfortable and clean. A little dated, but no big deal. Staff is friendly. Love the free breakfast! Stayed here twice. Fan wasn't working the last time, but didn't notify them until checkout.

We stopped in Altoona because it was the halfway point in our drive so I had to find a hotel. H.I. Express has always been reliable so in we went. This time was the same as always. Pleasant, warm and friendly clerk at check-in. Cookies and coffee at door. Clean well prepared room. Basic breakfast included. Close to stores and restaurants. It was impossible to find fault.

Though the exterior is not the most inviting, once inside, we were pleased by everyone and every thing we encountered. There were so many extra services to make our stay pleasant - coffee and cookies at the door, complimentary popcorn and granola bar as well as two bottles of water in the mini fridge, a microwave, desk and chair, plus a table with chairs for a late night game. The pillow slips were embroidered with "soft" and "firm" to make the choice easier. Just the fact that they had thought to provide both was impressive. Clean, and comfortable beds. The morning breakfast area was large and yet cozy, with hot entrees and delicious cinnamon buns -- even a machine that popped out pancakes hot off the grill. We visited in rainy fall weather, but on summer mornings an adjacent patio with waterfall and gardens would have been a delightful place to eat. All in all, top notch.

The motel is sort of old and could use some remodeling. But it is safe and clean. Perkins Restaurant is next door and gives a 10% discount for motel guests. It has friendly staff, ready to help you with a smile. They have a nice breakfast area with plenty of food and drinks. They also have a coin laundry, if you need to do some laundry. I have stayed here for many years and always come back.

The hotel's exterior is not that of the usual Holiday Inn Express. The hotel appears to have been acquired from another hotel chain. That said, Holiday Inn has made it there's! The front desk staff was extremely friendly and courteous. As Priority club members, we are entitled to a check-in package. While we did not received this at the check in counter, we were pleasantly surprised when we got to our room to find they had already put it in the refrigerator and the water was cold. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The only downside we found was the low toilet seat height is not well suited for folks as they get older. Breakfast was standard Holiday Inn fare. We did notice one minor issue at breakfast, however, that was immediately addressed by the front desk staff.
We definitely recommend staying at this hotel if you are in the Altoona area.

Great service, very fast and friendly. Other than the gum I stepped on in my room after first entering the stay and convenience of the amenities were excellent. Plenty of restaurants close by and right on the main strip which was convenient to help find everything during my stay.
