However, it was a mistake this time! I have stayed at Whitten Inn in Taos on several occasions and have had good experiences. As a matter fact, it had become my hotel of choice in Taos. My wife and I booked the room in Abilene after looking at the positive feedback on the facility and arrived at the at approximately... More

My crew and I stayed here for over 4 months. Although this hotel is an older one, the rooms were clean, the beds were new and the house keeping crew did a good job overall. The only downside was their breakfast. Not to appealing. We will definitely stay here again should work bring us back to abilene.

Everything in the room was outdated. Shower didnt work right, bathtub didnt drain so im standing in dirty water while showering. No hair dryer, I didnt even know where the ice machine was to get ice if I wanted some. The only good thing was the pool. While I was swimming with my family I was rudely asked what room... More

I recently stayed at this hotel for a course and was impressed with the staffs' attitude and demeanor. I was asked why I intended to stay there and was delighted when I received a discount as an EMS worker on a course; it is very rare that we receive any gratitude for our service. I was also told that there... More

We just stayed here for the second time in less than six months. First time we chose to stay here because of location and price, second time we were in a bind and didn't want to stay across Abilene, and next time we just sleep in the car if this is the only option. Here are the positives. Rooms are... More

Very dirty hotel. It was very hard to feel comfortable here. The towels were even bad & the pillows and bed smelled horrible. Would avoid and try finding another place. Service was ok and breakfast and coffee was not very good either.
