My family and I stayed 2 nights on our way to visit family for Thanksgiving. It was late, and we didn't want to battle the snow storm. Sheryl at the front desk was the sweetest lady! She really helped us out, and I wanted to thank her again, for her kindness! Our stay was very peaceful. The room was spotless,...

Let me first start out by saying the front desk staff are very pleasant and genuinely care about the guests. Unfortunately that's where it all ends with this hotel. I travel frequently and prefer to stay at Marriott properties. The other Courtyard Marriott's I stay at are always great. The Courtyard Marriott in Altoona has dated rooms and furnishings, dirty...

Stayed here for a Penn State game, it's about 45 minutes away from the stadium. Everything from the room, coffee, and food was overpriced for the quality. The room included a fridge and microwave, hidden in a worn cabinet/tv stand. Served breakfast until 11am, made to order. However we waited over 20 minutes for (cold) eggs, hash browns, meat, and...

Very nice accommodations and really comfortable beds. Decor is very nice. The hotel bar was nicely stocked and they even had beer available from the convenience area. Too bad is was too chilly to take advantage of the outdoor grill area. Looking forward to going back again.

Stayed here during a weekend trip to Altoona. It is a short drive from I-99 with a good location between Altoona and Hollidaysburg. There are lots of restaurants close by. The hotel was quiet although it was full. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Room was clean, bed was comfortable. Nothing fancy but good, clean accommodations.
