    Repeat stay

    We've stayed at Altoona Grand several times. It's not perfect, but good enough to come back. The only issue this time was the heating system was noisy.

    • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    Overall experience was not good. We chose this mid way hotel while driving from Toronto to Virginia. So we didn’t stop by for vacations but still you expect the minimum hygiene from the hotel. Room was ok, bed sheets, pillows and towels were not changed from the last customer’s use. We were so tired that we didn’t report it considering it was Christmas Eve. The beds too soft and noisy but the most vulnerable part was somebody trimmed hair were found on the wash basin and hand towel was used by house keeping to clean and they left it as is for our use. We showed all this to house keeping next day and they acknowledged to get us 50% money back because of this but now after two weeks nothing is done neither hotel or Expedia has done anything expect creating the case. Sorry will not recommend this hotel to anyone.
