Beautiful hotel...the nicest place that Norfolk Southern has ever lodged us! The rooms are gorgeous, the people are friendly and the complimentary breakfast is fantastic and varies day to day. They also offer a complimentary dinner every Tuesday that they don't even advertise and it is spectacular.

Stayed at the Holiday Inn this past Friday night for a visit to Penn State Altoona on Saturday. We went with another family so we had 2 rooms, each with 2 queen beds. Both families had the same experience. Front desk staff was welcoming and the room was very clean. Linens were bright white and the bed was comfy, just a little too soft for my friend with back problems, but OK for me. The complimentary breakfast on Saturday morning was very good. Scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, bagels etc. More than I expected really. The hotel was filled with a lot of kids on a basketball tournament, but still very quiet in the room. We didn't go, but just a short walk to a Dunkin Donuts, Perkins, Olive Garden. Would highly recommend.

I have been staying at the hotel for about 6 years for business. My stays are for 1 to 4 nights depending on the occasion. The staff at the front desk are just wonderful friendly people. The morning breakfast is always fresh and they have quite a variety of items. The rooms are clean and if I require anything special the staff always are very helpful in assisting me.

Room Tip: I always request ground floor. Quit and easy access.

I've been staying at the Holiday Inn for about two months now due to some traveling I've had to do for work. I've never had a better experience in a hotel. The staff is wonderful-- very accommodating and polite, reserving rooms for me at the last minute and adjusting my stay several times when I was uncertain of when I had a day off to drive back home. The facility itself is very clean and welcoming as well. They take excellent care of you when you stay here! I have nothing but positive things to say.

Driving across the state, we were caught in a snowstorm with our little dog. I frantically used my smart phone to find a hotel in Altoona that accepted dogs and was happy to find this one (husband was driving). I would advise trying to get the hotel directly on the phone because the number I called was a call center with an unknowing, unhelpful person. The staff at the desk was quite good and nice and we were so lucky to be able to check in around 2pm when we really needed to get off the roads.

Hotel was nice, the doggie rooms seem to be on the first floor. I was pleased to see the room was big, well appointed, and the bathroom and bedding were very nice and very clean. We didn't have a crate so could not leave our dog alone in the room which was fine....I wouldn't want to make her anxious anyway. There are many restaurants really close to the hotel and hubby picked up take-out food for us for dinner. We picked Olive Garden, although we were tempted by Five Guys.

My two small complaints are these: One, the non-refundable 75 dollar "deposit" for our 22 pound dog is pretty steep. They call it a deep cleaning fee and yes the room seemed very clean. However, judging from the way my dog kept furiously sniffing (and trying to lick, ew) two particular areas of the floor, I really don't think they shampooed the carpet (which would have helped to justify the deep cleaning fee). The other complaint is that the water pressure for the shower was awful in our room and I didn't expect the very soft water...couldn't rinse shampoo out of my hair. Better water pressure may have helped with that a bit.

I would still highly recommend this hotel. We were treated well and the room was very nice and very clean where it counts (bedding and bath). I think non pet people get rooms that were not used for pets so no worries for them.
