Can't explain how well cleaned my room was, I would like to thank Kathy D, Misty D, Ashley, Kelsey, and Sue W for making sure the rooms are clean, beds are made, and the refrigerator is stocked. As well as the awesome customer service from Tara Swope and Ellen. Thank you ladies

As my title states, the stay was overall a decent stay. The Front End staff was kind and was welcoming. Offered goodies as a snack. Breakfast was of decent fare. They did offer things in the evening but I did not partake. Gym was a little lackluster. It was a small room with two treadmills and very little equipment. No... More

Okay, lemme tell a little about this hotel, I checked into this place while travel took me through Altoona. The hotel is located where you would't expect a decent hotel, along a typical suburban corridor with commercial strip malls, restaurants, etc. You walk in? It's an older, well lit quiet generous lobby. I check into my room and open the... More

This was formerly the Holiday Inn. It has been remodeled from top to bottom. The room was very clean. We had a king bed and a huge TV. It was quiet as it sits off the highway. The bathroom was very clean. Breakfast was very good.

The Clarion Inn and Suites is a little hotel right off the interstate. They have new beds and new TVs, but the rest of the room attributes are still a little tired. I though the staff were very nice and helpful, the rates were good, and this was, overall a great place to stay.

I can't say enough about the place. Staff is very nice. The cleaning crew is very pleasant. The rooms are large and very clean. I would stay hear anytime. Easy to find. Plenty of things to do in the area. Perkins is next door.

It was OK. The dog walk area was nice. Stocked with poop bags. But, the $75 charge... which I knew about up front... seems a little much. Days Inn - in town... charges $15/night. So, for a short stay, I'll probably opt to stay there. Plus, Clarion sorta marks you with the scarlet letter. You have to hang a sign... More

I apologize that the pet policy was not palatable. The sign that goes on your door is for safety precautions for your pet. 100% of the pet fee goes towards deep cleaning the room after each pet departs. I discussed your concern with the GM and we will be reviewing our pet policy. We get tons of compliments about our... More
