I can't complain. The hotel is older but clean and affordable. The group I was with checked in very late. The staff was understanding and allowed us a very late check-out so we were able to get more than four hours of sleep. Bonus for us, the office Cat was in a playful mood when we checked in.

The room was clean. I had what I needed, but not a lot of extra frills. The staff was great from the front desk, to those who cleaned the rooms, and the one helping with the breakfast was, as well. Hospitality, and consideration was outstanding toward someone who was tired from travel, and needed an affordable place to stay. I... More

This was recommended to us after a disappointing stay at a more upmarket hotel earlier in the year. We were absolutely delighted with our poolside room. It was comfortable, clean and cozy! The receptionists Katy and Donna were extremely accommodating and courteous. They should be congratulated for their wonderful service! Praise also to the ladies in house keeping that serviced...

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.

Staff is very friendly but it stops there. After checking into my room I noticed that the humidity level was very high, come to find out that the carpeting was wet, not just in one spot but the entire room. 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
