I've worked at a hotel before so I know the routine. The staff was great and I had an awesome welcoming from whom seemed to be the Manager on duty. The rooms were wonderful and clean, exactly what I would expect from a Holiday Inn. The housekeepers were super nice and I don't see that too often. One staff member... More

I frequent Holiday Inn Express and IHG Properties. I completed a long leg of a 500+ mile drive from Oklahoma. This hotel like many Holiday Inn Express' is an oasis. Quiet room, comfortable and all amenities. Staff here are "down home" friendly folks. They have some nice added touches to the Express Breakfast. Clean and cozy atmosphere.

Stayed in the hotel in Jan 2005 but that was before doing Trip Adviser reviews. It was a good stay as was the recent June 2014 stay but the place has gone downhill in the last 9+ years. - 60 watt incandescent bulbs make for a DIM room. Not pleasant if you have work to do. - Door closer needed... More

For some reason the GPS does not take you to this address so heads up. I called the hotel and staff was helpful with coordinates. I just stayed for one night, the place feels new and clean. The free breakfast was OK. Easy access to I-20 and gas stations. I would certainly stay here again.

My family stayed here for a wedding in March 2014. It's well-located, though not in the middle of town. They were kind enough to allow the wedding party to have use of their breakfast room area after the wedding. The kids had wanted to wind down from the festivities and there were about 20 people who wanted to visit. The... More

Hotel was very clean, room (a king suite) was spacious and bed was comfortable. Though close to the freeway, we did not hear any road noise. There is currently road construction, so it can be difficult to get around. Front desk staff were friendly and welcoming - not surprising in Texas! - but still delightful. We'll stay here again when... More

This hotel is by far one of the best we have EVER stayed in so far in our travels!

I was just passing through so was looking for the most reasonable rate as well as good accomodations. This Hotel met the mark. It was a very spacious room, much larger than expected, very clean and exceptional staff. It was just an overnight stay so didn't see much of Abilene, though I have been there many times on Military Duty.... More

I stayed here 2 nights for a training and knew nothing about Abilene, I was pleasantly surprised. Room was huge! Very clean and smelled great. I was on the first floor so heard a little bit of noise from the hallway but nothing unexpected in a hotel. Close to Walmart, Chillis, Jason's deli and other eateries. Right off I-20. Staff... More
