Check in staff is great! Lots of variety for breakfast. Second time I stayed there, had a room at the front.. Very quiet, didn't hear traffic OR other guests... Actually overslept, which wasn't much appreciated by the checkout staff. Room was very clean, although bathroom needed a bit more attention in the corners.

I booked this hotel over the internet. I have always stayed in Best Westerns and have gotten great service, clean rooms and a pleasant experience. I was originally booked in room 219 until I discovered that the TV didn't work so I was moved to a different room. Woke up this morning and the sound doesn't work on my TV.... More

This location for the value and friendliness you can not beat this location. From the management down it is great and everyone makes you feel comfortable. The service from the front desk to the folks cleaning the room are the best and I have stayed at chains from the least expensive to ones that are resort type. The food is... More

I highly recommend this hotel for people who like: (1) A sincere smile from the front desk clerk; (2) a clean, comfortable bed; and (3) taxidermied rodents. Seriously, the stuffed racoons and possums in the lobby are SOOOOO CUTE!!!!!

Used to the hotels in Central Texas. The Best Westerns there are a lot nicer. This is more like a motel 6. This hotel is older . If you are allergic to smoke beware. The rooms are not completely seperated even if they say they are. The only thing this place has going for it is its close to the... More

The staff were helpful and friendly and the ambience and décor in the lobby inviting. We spent time there with friends and found it the perfect spot to relax in the evening. Overall this hotel gets an... More

Everything that I experienced at this location was great, except, the in room wi-fi internet connection was really slow...barely better than dial up. This has nothing to do with the hotel, but Abilene taxes are extremely high.

Loved this hotel. Clean, friendly staff, close to restaurants and general shopping like Target, Walmart, Albertsons, and a mall. Very clean and just a great hotel. I will stay again the next time I travel through Texas!
