A hotel that is up to usual Marriott standard. It is clean, and even though there was a large wedding party, it was quiet. The rooms are spacious. Two things I was not impressed with - no complimentary breakfast, and the person who checked us in. She seemed to be unhappy with me asking questions, sounded very condescending, and even...

We stayed here as we were looking at different colleges. Clean nice location. A little disappointed that there wasn't a full service restaurant. As you walk in across from check in there is a small snack shop that you can order food. I think the price could be a little better value.Not a bad place.

We recently attended a wedding in the Altoona, PA area. We stayed 2 nights at the Courtyard. The staff was very accommodating for getting our room ready early because of a business call. They welcomed our grandkids and the food staff was very accommodating to meet the needs of our grandkids. The staff even delivered a pizza to my mother-in-laws...

A very pleasant, spotless room for a one night stay while en route to Canada. A bistro-bar with a helpful barrista for a light meal and a drink. Very nice indoor pool though the hot tub was very hard to get in and out of. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again should we travel this route again.

First time using the Courtyard in Altoona. My son and I were quite pleased with the location (about 5 minutes to the ballpark) and near the highway. The room was nice, clean, and comfortable. We did not try the bistro, buy others did and seemed to be enjoying it. This will be place to stay next trip to Altoona.

Stayed here for the weekend. Nice lobby area. No breakfast buffet or continental breakfast. Pay for what you eat. Very limited. Room was clean. Bathroom tub somewhat scratched. Lots of pillows and great bedding. Nice towels too.

We stopped here on our way home from Toronto. It provided everything we needed: comfortable beds, a clean and quiet room, and friendly staff. I can't remember who checked us in but thank you for the top floor room overlooking the mountains. They were gorgeous!

Boiling Springs, Pennsylvania
Reviewed 4 July 2015

This hotel is a good value for what you get. The rooms are nice and clean and if you get one with a patio the room is a bit bigger. There is no complimentary morning breakfast of any kind - which sucks. But they have a mini-restaurant and Starbucks which is expensive but it all they have.
