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.

We had a great stay at this very nice hotel by the Convention Center. We purposely visited the area to see the famous Horseshoe Curve. It was the perfect weekend to visit.

Not the best location and not kept up the best to boot. My stay should have been for a few weeks but moved to another hotel after just 6 nights.Noise from other guest and poor location was enough for me to move on down the road.

This is a very quiet, very clean hotel. Two adults and two children shared a room with two queen beds and a sofa bed. The room was spacious enough that we weren't tripping over each other. The beds were very comfortable and even the kids slept pretty good. They also enjoyed the pool. I would give this location a very...

Stayed here one night, clean, quiet, would have rated excellent if they had provided breakfast, but we found a nice place in Altoona. Primati Bros for happy hour was just around the corner, would have been nice to be able to walk there, could have had another margarita

Great location for the convention center. Friendly staff. Comfortable beds and quiet location. Would recommend and will stay here again if we come this way. Liked the counter height sink in our room. Can not think of much more to add to get to the minimum required characters.., oh we ate at Jethro's and would recommend that.
