After walking out of one hotel room and not even booking another because of the sewer smell in the lobby, we found this hotel. The staff was friendly, the price was right, and the room & bed were comfortable.

I just wanted to thank the staff at this hotel for being so accommodating and helpful. I rented nine rooms and had to cancel one at the last minute due to that person not being able to accompany us on this trip. The staff there, Tisha and Ralph, were very helpful. I went to Abilene for a baseball tournament with... More

I flew in from a long way to bring my child to ACU. From making my reservation via phone calls through the entire length of stay, the crew have been extremely hospitable. I stayed there for more than two weeks. The staff are nice, always greeting with friendly smiles. The computer and printer set up at the lobby have made... More

While you're staying with us ask our front desk about the different sites to... More

The room was clean and the staff were very nice, but I did not like that the hotel seemed to be filled with all working men and very few families or couples. My daughter and I went down to the pool in the early evening and felt very uncomfortable with all the men looking down on us from the balcony... More

I am a college student parent and will need to come and stay in Abilene often, so I have been trying different accommodations near I-20 about 5 mins from ACU. The hotel is older but I found my room decent, clean and the bedding was comfortable with plenty of pillows. There were NO BED BUGS anywhere (I checked). The staff... More

We want to thank you for your review, and patronage. Every hotel is at risk for the opportunity of unwanted little guest, we cant fully stop it, but we have taken several preventative measures, so our guest can sleep peacefully. Each and every Whitten property is pet friendly, we do charge a small fee, but understand they are part of... More

We went to Abilene for a birthday party and when the Name Brand hotel booked us on the wrong date, we had to find another hotel for the evening. Whitten Inn was extremely reasonable and even though college students were there with parents, checking in for school that weekend, it was very quiet and restful. Although it is an older... More

This beds are hard. Backaches will probably haopen. Not impressed with this hotel. Appreciate the fact that there is no smoking in the room but had to walk through clouds of it outside to get to this room. Fighting an asthma attack. Would be nice if one side was reserved for those of us with severe allergies to smoke.

We have never received such service and welcome from a hotel before. We had to make a last minute trip to Abilene the end of July. Expecting no vacancies, we were pleased to be able to make one at the Whitten Inn with no problem. It is extremely close to where we were going. Although no handicapped rooms were available,... More

Do not park under the trees even if it is the only space available by your room! The birds literally pooped all over the front of my vehicle. I couldn't see out of my windshield and it smelled horrible. I asked for non smoking but the people in the room next to me would stand right outside my door not... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We ask if you would call the hotel and speak with any of the front desk staff, let them know what room you stayed in because we take smoking within 20 feet of the hotel very seriously. Infact we have a disclosure on the back of our registration cards, we... More
