Clarion Inn & Suites

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We just were there overnight and it was great. We were only there overnight and I don't really have anything else to say......sorry.

Room was clean. Typical northern style motel with heavy fabric, heavy wood, with wall paper. Good location to eateries and shopping.

We love staying at Holiday Inn Express. We are never disappointed when we do. The room was clean, the staff was super friendly, free wifi, snack compliments in the refrigerator (popcorn, bottled water, and a snack bar), and as always a complimentary breakfast. This location is an easy in and out off of I-99, even if you are not familiar with the Altoona area, and is close to several restaurants within walking distance. We have stayed here before, and will stay here again.

Attended PSU graduation and, other than the fact it was not is State College, it fit our needs just right. Breakfast was better than I expected.

No complaints. The desk staff was very friendly and courteous. Our room was what I expected for the price - not fancy, but clean and comfortable. The workout room was a nice plus. We will stay there again, I'm sure.

Would recommend this motel, was next to the incoming door somewwhat noisy with people going in and out.

Central to dining and shopping. Clean, comfortable and staffed with friendly faces.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to my friends who come from out of town for weekend visits.

The staff was very welcoming. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was awesome. We ate outside and the patio area was cozy and nicely decorated. Very relaxing atmosphere.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay at this hotel, it was the most convenient. When I called directly to make a reservation they were booked, then I tried another on-line service and they were booked, so glad I tried Orbitz...........a very comfortable room was available!!!!!!!!!!

Very friendly and helpful staff. Felt like staying with family. Staff told us about a spring-fed pool in Blue Knob. Excellent experience. Nice to wake up to free coffee and breakfast. Motel is conveniently located in Altoona, but no extra road noise. A sweet garden-park in the back of the motel. I would definitely stay at this motel again. Free Internet was refreshing.

Very friendly Staff. Rooms were very clean. Location was excellent. Walked to resturants, and drugstore.

Hotel was very good, clean and well maintained

Everything except breakfast buffet was fine. for the price i would of expected real eggs or an omlet the advertise. juice was from syrup. if u need breakfast go to hampton inn

The hotel was clean and stuff was friendly. However it's not quiet and is outdated - the rooms need better soundproofing. When people slamming doors, walking and talking you can hear every sound in your room. The Hamptons Inn is much nicer for $20 more or you can get the same level rooms and service at super8 motel for half of this price. Oh, and the jacuzzi is not operational.

After visiting my mom in an assisted living facility,I found that the Holiday Inn was the perfect place to go and relax. The room was large and comfortable with a sofa and easy chair. It helped that a microwave and small refrigerator was in the room. We loved to go down to the lobby and relax. The breakfast bar was very nice and clean.We loved our stay there and hope to be back in the fall.

Friendly staff, hot breakfast buffet was fresh and sufficient for a quick bite to eat in the morning with plenty of options. I travel for work, and the rooms here are clean compared to lesser priced motel rooms. Holiday Inn Express offers the amenities that you need (hairdryer, microwave, refridgerator, desk, free WIFI) to make your nights away from home comfortable! My only complaint was that I wish my shower water was warmer in the mornings.

Good

Though it was a busy weekend in this town and the hotel was busy, rooms were quiet and comfortable. Very clean. Better than average breakfast buffet.

My husband and I both enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Express in Altoona, PA, we were there to visit family. During our 3 day visit the tempertures were in the 90's a little unusual in August. It would have been nice to dip into a pool to cool off.
