Do not stay here. The service was horrible. Used prepaid debit card for prepaid room and they wanted a 500.00 deposit for room, copy of drivers license and threats to report any damage to AG of PA. Only wife and husband in room. Given room in rear of hotel with many low life's hanging out. Breakfast area was small, cramped hardly and seating. Pay the few extra bucks and avoid. Bed was lumpy.

This motel sits on a hill right off the interstate. If you have an upper level room (and face the right direction) you can see the Altoona Curve fireworks display. Very comfortable rooms, microwave and refrigerators are available in some. Very courteous staff. Continental breakfast. This location is a "Pride of Super 8" which is the best that they have to offer. You won't be disappointed with this property.

as others have mentioned, it also has the microwave, and mini fridge. nice, clean property...but if you actually are expecting any kind of breakfast that ISN'T rasin bran or frosted flakes, you probably outta look elsewhere. but... if you want to act like you are 12 again...this is your spot, no doubt. i stayed here because it was cheap...really cheap. and if you were scared off, because it's so cheap...don't be. good deal, good stay. i would definitely stay here again (if i were forced to get a hotel in ALTOONA, PA again.

Altoona is a tricky town when it comes to motels, no real expensive hotels, but no real cheap ones either. Prices of any of Altoona's lodging can swing upwards when anything in town or State College (such as games) takes place, and that happens often. When I'm in the area I'm usually busy; don't have time to use a gym or pool, so a lower price motel without all the bells & whistles is all that I need. Motel 6 and Super 8 are the two I normally check prices with. When Super 8 is within $10 (or close to it) of Motel 6, I'll choose Super 8. The rooms are nicer, and they offer free breakfast. Don't get me wrong, the breakfast at Super 8 isn't worth $10, and a better meal can be picked up locally for less than $10, but it’s still one less stop in the morning, and you get free Wi-Fi at Super 8 (Motel 6 charges a small fee for Wi-Fi).

Enough comparing; Check in at Super 8 has been quick & easy, they do ask for picture ID on check-in, which is not a big deal, but when you travel often, and most motels don't ask for that, you wonder what kind of people try to stay here. What are they doing with my drivers license number.. Kind of worries me. This motel doesn't have an elevator, so climbing stairs with your suitcase isn't the most desirable part of my day. The rooms are nice & clean. I have never found anything out of place during my stays. I have used the free Wi-Fi without any problems. As long as the price is reasonable, I'd recommend this motel to others.

Room Tip: No elevator at this motel.

My family and I stayed for 2 nights in March. The customer service at check-in and check-out was great. Very friendly during every interaction. Room was clean and included a refrigerator and microwave. Breakfast was included every morning and there was a nice selection of items to choose from. The motel is located in a central area and is just a short drive to all of the local spots in Altoona. Price was fantasic compared to other hotel/motels in the area. I would stay here again without hesitation.
