The heater made a loud bang when it kicked on in my room and there was no hot water in the mornings, the hotel itself smelled.

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're so sorry that your experience didn't meet your expectations. Occasionally same-day reservations do take longer to input into our system. We'll also check over our thermostats to ensure that our systems are functioning properly

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.
