“Clean, surprise for price”
Reviewed 29 December 2012

Needed a room to stay for night. Gentleman was very helpful, price was right. Room was clean and efficient, we've stayed at higher priced motels and were disappointed with the cleanliness. Did just great in a pinch. Had a great rest, would stop here again.At $54.00 ,can't be beat for value

This motel right off i99 is awesome. I spent $63(this included tax!) and got 2 queens. It is near everything. Very clean!! No complains. Kudos to the gentlemen at the main desk. Very polite and considerate, Pool is great. Wifi is available for a $3 fee per day.

Even at $62, I feel we paid too much. The room was extremely spartan with cob webs with spiders hanging from the ceiling. The blankets were stained with holes and I'm not sure the last time that it was cleaned. The sink was unusable since the faucet was too close to the sink. The toilet had NO pressure and could not even flush the toilet paper. The ONLY redeeming quality of the hotel was that it accepted dogs (at no extra charge, which was a nice surprise), and they had no reports of bed bugs. The best part of our visit was when we left.

On par for brand, no frills, reasonably clean and well kept older single story with exterior entries, and small seasonal pool. Close to shopping, restaurants and attractions, with good freeway access. Check out Boyer Candy Company factory store, 821 17th Street Altoona PA. www.boyercandies.com/

Room Tip: Next to freeway on hillside with multiple terraced complexes. Avoid rooms on end closest to freeway...

This was a great surprise this motel 6 had swimming pool (nice), large rooms, bathtub, one story. Very clean, and nice people running it. Towels and pillows still smaller than most, but bigger than the normal motel 6 size. Good price for area

Reviewed 12 April 2012

I stay here a couple times a year. Although I think I always know what to expect from this Motel 6, I didn't expect to play Plummer at midnight. I checked in the motel earlier in the day, than didn't return until around midnight where we found out the toilet didn't operate well. The front desk gave me an option of changing rooms or pick-up a plunger. If I hadn't been unpacked, I would have rather changed rooms, but I chose to plunge, which I'm not good at.

Other than the toilet issue, everything else in the room was fine. I expect to return here again in the future, unless Super 8's rate comes down a bit.

It has everything that you need. Not that flashy or new but it's cheap, clean and conveniently located. At the end of the day it is an older Motel 6, don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed.
Be sure to check out the Eat'n Park next door. It's a decent feed and their breakfast buffet is worth a mention.
