The Wye is one of three lodging options that I use in the Altoona-Johnstown area of PA......I have used the Wye going back to the early 1990's when we had family reunions and nowadays I use it for lodging while in the area train watching
.....My most recent stay was for three nights in early Aug 2013...My room was next to the office but the parking space for that room was located across the driveway from the room rather than immediately outside the room where the majority of the rooms offer parking right up to the room door.
Motel building itself dates back to the 50's or early 60's Room was clean.....microwave, small fridge and wall unit a/c were available in the room......Wireless internet is available free of charge and worked well with some occasional slowdowns....
Bathroom relatively small and offered no counter or shelf to place shaving supplies.....had to use edge of sink to place shaving supplies and toothpaste/brush when using them and stuff would fall onto the floor so had to grab supplies out of my supply bag one at a time while leaving bag on floor....a bit awkward compared to a bathroom counter at home where you can lay everything out ....Limiting factor was the space available due to size of bathroom dating back to the motel's original 1960's design......Everything related to personal hygiene went out of and back into the suitcase each morning......Aside from that, the stay was comfortable and rooms cleaned daily...Rate for 1 person came out to $60 a night including taxes which I felt was an acceptable rate for what was offered and in comparison to rates at Chain motels in the area......Rates have gone up over the years to keep up with the times......I remember rates in the upper $30's to low $40's range back in the 1990's....I will return again......
