It is set up very nice and family friendly. The staff is phenomenal, especially the 3rd shift desk person. I didn’t catch her name, but she was fantastic! If I am ever back in Altoona, I will stay nowhere else. 10 stars!!!

It was a convenient location. We never got the tv to work even with the help of maintenance. They tried their best and it worked for a bit, but after they left it didn’t work again. It was a bit pricey.

We liked the fact had 2 pools, and the game room. Game room could have been opened more convenient hours during the day, not just evening times

Thank you for the feedback, and we're glad that you enjoyed the resort. Unfortunately, AdventureZone arcade is only open in the evening until the summer when we're open throughout the day.

We had a great experience. We had traveled several hours with a two year old and a five year old. Although the computer had not updated accommodations available, the staff bent over backwards (especially Jolynn) to make our family comfortable. The kids spent nearly two hours in the pool and were ready to fall asleep as soon as we got back to our room. I highly recommend Adventureland Inn for anyone traveling through this area!
