We have stayed at Whitten Inn the past four years in conjunction with the State Original Team Roping Association finals. Each visit has been good. Rooms are clean, free breakfast and newspaper are great, pool is clean and inviting. I highly recommend Whitten Inn for those traveling and looking for an economical place to stay.

Talked to front desk but was stuck in room for the night. Woken up at 3:30am to itchy red bumps... More

This was a quick stop while on the road. The hotel is quite old and it shows, but they still keep it clean. It is pet friendly, which I did not know, and it also shows - if you have allergies or similar problems with pets, avoid it. Service was great, very friendly and quick. They do have free breakfast,... More

I will definitely stay at the Whitten Inn University any time I go through Abilene, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a clean, comfortable and QUIET room! All the rooms we had were very... More

I'm not sure I could find better place to stay. The staff has been great to our group of four. Stasia is one of the nicest managers, she and her staff have been very professional. I recommend this place if staying in Abilene. Ps love the cat.

Nice room, friendly staff, great pool. We enjoyed our stay very much. We would stay again. Room was clean and comfortable. I would recommend it to anyone. It's located close to I-20, and good restaurants within walking distance.
