Reviewed 8 July 2013

We stayed here for the first night of a road trip to the east coast. We were tired and just wanted a clean place to sleep and this was great. The person at the front desk was really nice and the room was very clean. Nothing special but that is to be expected for 67 bucks a night. No complaints. The person in the morning was also really nice and even the coffee was good. If you are looking for a clean place to sleep this place was great.

Had a great experience at this Motel 6 this past weekend. Keep in mind - this is your budget friendly one star motel chain, there weren't any hair dryers or coffee makers in the room. Some people want a 4 star hotel but don't want to pay for it. Decor is plain and simple, and very basic. Wifi is an extra charge.

That being said, I was pleasantly suprised with the cleanliness and friendliness of the staff. I was very tired, had been driving from Philadelphia, and I saw the Motel Six sign high above Route 99. It said "$43.99 per person". Of course, when you see a sign like this, when you actually get to the motel they either no longer offer the rate, the rate is only for Sunday through Thursday, or they sold out of that room that they offer for that price!

However - I called, and the front desk said yep, $43.99. That was a good sign. I was a lone female and I felt nice and safe in this room. There was no mold or cracked grout in the bathroom and the water pressure in the shower was strong and hot. The towels weren't super fluffy but were clean and newer looking, the sheets were crisp and fresh, and the TV worked. And there was HBO. That's basically all I needed for the night!

The hotel was in a nice central spot with a lot of eateries nearby, and what appeared to be a mall across the street. Overall, great experience and my pocketbook didn't cry out in agony either!!

Room was clean, cozy and appeared to have had a recent refresh. This was an unexpected stay because it was on the drive from Pittsburgh and the snow got to be too much. At $38.99 on Saturday night, can't be beat.

For the price this hotel is great for a quick nights sleep. My girlfriend and I were passing through Altoona and needed a cheap place to crash for the night. We spotted the Motel 6 and decided to get a room for some sleep. The room was just completely cheap, which was expected but this went overboard. Wasn't even a nice place to stay, good things is we were only there for about 6 hours of sleep and took off again.

If you have a choice, stay somewhere else. This place is old, cheap and not all that clean.

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.
