I had a clean room, close to the pool. There was not any noise that was unbearable. The air conditioner worked well, and the room was very comfortable. I found it easy to get to the conference I was attending, and there were plenty of restaurants nearby. There was also a movie theater not too far away. Breakfast was very... More

Friendliest people in town! The room could have been a bit cleaner to my likings. The outside noise from the traffic was loud at night, causing problems to fall asleep. But in a great location as far as shopping.

Lobby of the hotel is excellent. Rooms was nice looking , clean, bed was a bit soft for me. Plenty of towels and pillows. My biggest problem was the key card didn't stay active. Every time I would use it I had to go to office to get it reprogrammed. I was in and out of the room a lot... More

We are sorry that you experienced repeated issues with the room key, and we also appreciate you bringing this to our attention.

Most importantly they are pet friendly. The staff was very helpful. They actually had a real breakfast with eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits, and the usual waffle maker. I really liked the large leather recliner in the room.

Our planned stay at a B&B went horribly awry (no A/C, barking dog in next room), so we decamped to Best Western Whitten South in Abilene. It was an excellent decision. Room was clean, cold and very quiet. Not the greatest view but perfect for tired grumpy travelers who just wanted somewhere to spend the night. Staff was very courteous.

my brand new car got keyed and they refused to acknowledge any blame. The manager was rude and talked down to me and told me that I could get as upset as I wanted to bur=t they were not going to do anything about it because she said there was no evidence on the video. watch out!

Abilene hosted the 2014 Harley Davidson State HOG Rally and this hotel along with the rest of the city rolled out the Red Carpet for us.

We spent a night here during some really wild Texas weather. Our room was spacious and clean. The beds were a little soft for our tastes, but others may like them. The lobby is very nice, with good sitting and reading areas. The free breakfast include freshly cooked bacon, sausage, and scrambled eggs....more extensive than one usually sees. The staff... More
