Saying the property is very dated and needs major renovation is being nice. A complete demolition and rebuild would be required for this property to meet modern albeit developing nation standards. The only thing that was good was the late night check in lady. She very polite and friendly.

This does not appear to be a legitimist complaint their is no information provided as to where or when. this person stayed as too a room number or name. We have a double system of inspections a house keeper and supervisor who checks rooms if could get better information we could reply more specially to the issue. we take complaints seriously and we review this our staff. the internet serves a wonderful function the problem is that anyone can make a review booking.

Not worth the money

Pros: Price
Cons: Cleanliness of bathroom, attitude of staff, breakfast menu
Location: Altoona Pa
The motel was run down and the shower was not clean. There was an older lady working the front desk that had a serious attitude and should not be working with the public. The breakfast was missing basic items such as milk and cereal. All in all I was very disappointed with my stay. The only thing good about it was the price compared to others in the same area.. It's true that you get what you pay for.

You get what you pay for

Pros: Free Internet
Cons: low end in all respects
This is an economy hotel; hence the name. It's dreary and sparkling clean is certainly not a word I would use to describe it. However, it is inexpensive and if all you want is a place to sleep it represents a good value for the money, particularly relative to the inflated prices of other hotels in in the area.

Good price, nice staff.

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, clean
We stayed here after a Penn State game since everything else had been booked up (and we booked about 3 months in advance!). I was hesitant and thought that it would be a dump for sure, but we were pleasantly surprised. The staff was super nice and the room was clean and pleasant. It's an Econo Lodge, so don't expect anything to blow you away, but I have to say this was a good experience and we were happy to stay here. Bonus: there is a Cracker Barrel right down the street! :)

Good hotel for the price

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
I was very happy with the room we rented and with the staff. They were very accomodating when I needed an iron (They don't have one in each room) and extra towels. The room was quiet and comfortable. The included breakfast was quite good and the close Chinese resturant was excellent as well. They only issue I had was that for some reason, neither I nor my daughter or son could not log onto the internet with any of our laptops.

bad experience

The room was in poor condition; the odor was terrible---a combination of musky/moldy with stale cigarette smoke. My allergies were going crazy, eyes swollen, etc. The other "guests" two rooms over were sitting outside playing checkers and reminded me of inmates and gave me some pause for concern as to what other types of activities were going on at the hotel. Don't recommend this hotel at all---stay away!
