This hotel is by far one of the best we have EVER stayed in so far in our travels! From the moment we entered the hotel lobby, Senta (one of the best front desk people we have ever encountered!) made us feel welcome and at home! When reserving the room, I asked for a nice quiet room, and, boy, did... More

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

First, I was given a king suite room at government rate! That's pretty much unheard of. I usually suspect I get the worst room because of the government rate. So the room was huge and immaculate. I liked the extra bathroom storage-wall built in. There were two things I didn't like about the room though. First, my AC unit was... More

They knew what restaurant to recommend, took care of my important outgoing mail and made the stay very pleasant. The breakfast was good but again the kitchen staff made the difference. They were working hard to make sure the crowd in the room was well taken care of.

I was impressed with this hotel. Stayed on night on way through town. Good location off I-20 (sits behind another hotel off feeder). Stayed in August 2013-there was a bit of construction in the area on the feeder roads. Walmart, Cracker Barrell, gas stations and fast food are close. If I'm ever in the area again, I'm staying here.

We booked this hotel again for our family reunion and again it was a very pleasant stay. They are very accommodating and could not be a nice group of people to work with. Mia, Amanda and Paul were very helpful with any questions or concerns.
