Econo Lodge Altoona

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Everything was clean, mechanical systems worked. No problems. The breakfast was typical. It was nice having the microwave and refrigerator.

Not what my wife was expecting. Sheets were stained. I had to order different ones. It was a place to close my eyes instead of my car!,

Nice accommodation and afford breakfast, centre of town

Hotel is old and needs repair. Couple of miles drive to dining.

The hotel was just what we were expecting for the price range that it was in. It was located in a nice area of town. The Mall and shopping centers are very close. Would stay again. Did not have a hair dryer or Iron.

I arrived with my daughter late in the evening and the staff was very friendly. We asked for directions fo the University where we had an appointment on the next day and the staff provided typed directions. The room was very clean and comfortable.

THERE WERE STAINS ON THE DUST COVERS AND THE PILLOWS/SHEETS APPREARED TO BE WRINKLED. ON THE POSITIVE SIDE, THE DESK CLERKS WERE GREAT. EASY IN, EASY OUT.

I was able to rest, it was so peaceful and quiet although my prior visits to other hotels I had an iron and ironing board in the room and I guess I looked for that in this hotel and they did not have it. I was kind of disappointed but every hotel is not the same and it did not ruin the over all experience in staying at this hotel. I enjoy the location very much because there is so much to do, and so many stores and malls in the area, it is always a pleasant stay for me.

Inexpensive rates. Located near many fine restaurants and fast food services. Close to Lakemont Amusement park and the minor league Altoona team. Located in a valley with large hills surrounding city.

STAFF WAS FRIENDLY AND THE LOCATION WAS EXCELLENT.

Upon arrival at the hotel, it looked rough and dirty. There were rowdy people sitting on the sidewalks with their couch pulled out of their rooms drinking and smoking. The hotel evidently rent out rooms by the week or month, because these guys seemed very comfortable, and like they had been there for awhile. The parking lot was in terrible shape, and flooded due to the rain they had been getting. The woman that checked me in at 8pm also was the one that checked me out at 7am. She was very friendly and polite, being the only nice part of the stay. As for the room, the bathrooms could not of been cleaned after the previous person stayed as there was hair on the ceiling above the tub area, and the toilet was spotted as well from the previous person. Will not stay there again.

I was sure when I booked the room at this hotel that the description stated that each room had a coffee maker, internet access, & hairdryers. There was absolutly nothing to the room except 2 beds, a small bottle of shampoo and a TV. There was no hairdryer, coffee maker, or internt access. We feel lucky we had enough towels for all of us. In one corner of the room it appeared as if a pipe had been replaced, but upon fixing it, they didn't put the wall back. The opening in the wall was covered with wallpaper. I will never ever stay at an Econo Lodge ever again nor recommend one to other travelers. Econo Lodge Altoona needs to invest in updating their property or edit their description to reflect what they truly offer.

This hotel is great for a night or two on a bussines trip,it is quiet, staff is really nice, it is well located, clean, nice restaurants around, good shopping. Good price!!!. (Not for a family vacation)
