“Good alternative to Holiday Inn Express”
Reviewed 3 July 2012

We stayed here for one Saturday night. The hotel is right off the highway and close to a lot of stores and restaurants. The room was clean and comfortable with a large bathroom. The flat screen TV was nice and had plenty of channels to choose from. The hotel was pretty busy the night we stayed, but there was very little noticeable noise from people in the halls and adjacent rooms once we were in the room. We had dinner at Champs, which is a sports bar right next to the hotel and the food and service were very good there. We also had the free breakfast in the lobby which was OK, what you would expect.

I’ve stayed in three hotels in the Altoona area – this one, the Holiday Inn Express, and the Marriott Courtyard. The Courtyard and the Hampton Inn are pretty comparable. Between the Holiday Inn Express and the Hampton Inn, the Hampton Inn is definitely the better hotel.

On our way to Virginia Beach, we hit a deer with our car, severely damaging it and stranding ourselves in Altoona, PA. The hotel staff immediately helped us out. They gave us a room at a discounted rate, wrote down all the numbers of local car rental dealers, continuously were checking on us, asking if we needed anything or what they could do to help. The Staff provided extraordinary customer service and truly cared about us and our situation. Thank you Hampton Inn at Altoona!!

We stayed here for a night on our way down to VA, the check in was prompt, advice on eating places was good, breakfast was excellent, all round just a 5 star experience.

The bed was comfortable, curtains blacked out all light, I was able to rest until well after dawn. I strongly recommend this place..

Room Tip: The end is towards the freeway, but did not experience any noise.

Although it looks like a typical medium priced chain hotel room they go a step further. There is a full size couch to relax on so one doesn't have to sit on the bed. There is an actual closet with a door and best of all hangers which you can take of fthe rod. There is a full length mirror & plenty of towels however bring your own cotton balls & Q-tips.
A complimentary hot breakfast is provided as well as a newspaper. If you don't have your lap top there is a computer with free use.
A Champs Restaurant is out the front door and a Cracker Barrell out the back. A mall with Macy's is right across the street.
The staff were friendly and helpful. They serve Altoona well.

We stayed one night at the Hampton Inn in Altoona while visiting my daughters friend at the university in town. The hotel was a bit further from campus then we thought but that's not their fault.
The hotel is showing its age but room was clean and comfortable, just fine for what we needed though nothing special. Breakfast was a bit sparse and picked over by the sports teams staying there. The hotel was having trouble keeping up with the demand for food. Most of the breakfast selections were empty and restocking was VERY slow.
There were quite a few other hotels in the area and next time I'll probably try someplace else.

Thank you for sending a response concerning your stay at our hotel on February 21st. I am so sorry to hear that you had some issues with our breakfast bar. We did have a great many teams that chose to stay with our hotel over the weekend and most were at the breakfast bar at the same time. Again I do apologize for any inconvenience this might have caused you and your family while staying with us.
