Overall we had a good stay. Our room was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the staff was very polite and welcoming. Everything I would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. We stay in these quite often. We did have few minor issues: our bathtub did not drain, the electric/charging sockets closest to the bed did not work, and the Internet was very spotty/we kept getting kicked off of Wi-Fi. I let the front desk know of these issues as we were checking out and they were very polite and helpful about it. They only have one maintenance person right now and none of the issues were big enough to make me want to switch rooms or hotels.

We stay here every time we visit SFU, it is right net to the AMC movie theater and less then ten minutes from most of the restaurants. If you need to stock up on any items a big name box store is right around the corner. The hotel employees are always friendly, the rooms clean and they serve a great full menu breakfast.

There isn't a whole lot within walking distance of this hotel, but a short drive will get you to the main commercial street. The breakfast was ample enough. The room was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay.

The Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Altoona, PA is an above average hotel. I found the team to be kind and friendly. If you are concerned about noise, be sure to secure a room on the back of the hotel instead of the front. I found the breakfast downstairs to be above average to be a budget hotel. It is located in a very update area.

Just a simple single night stay as we drove through. Breakfast was good, the room was very nice. The pool is small but good for a quick dip or if you have kids. Clean, modern, up to date. Just what we needed.
