In Abilene, there are many hotel choices right off of I-20 and a plus for this hotel is that they are situated behind a 'freeway facing' hotel, which makes it much quieter than the other hotels. They upgraded me (without me requesting it) to a suite; the room was very large and it was a nice touch to have a... More

I stayed here on a recent business trip to west Texas. I was given a mini-suite and it was good. The furniture seemed a bit dated but was functional. The shower was good. The fitness center was well supplied. The complimentary breakfast was good as well. So why the average rating? There were too few AC outlets in the room.... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. They gave us a suite which is a big room complete with mid-size refrigerator, microwave and extra sink. The king size bed was comfortable, the TV was adequate, and there is also a table with two chairs and a sleeper sofa with a coffee table. They have a nice hot free breakfast... More

Rooms were very large with a couch and table, but some of the furniture did not quite seem to match. The workout room was well equipped but had poor ventilation. When I went in there someone had propped open the door, I didn't understand why until I closed it. It smelled really bad (sweat) and the room had no ventilation... More

The best I have to offer on this place is that it has the best hotel room shower I have had in years! Lots of pressure and hot water. However, the tap water sinks and smells like a algae pond. This is prevalent all throughout the town, you can taste it in soft drinks and ice tea. Interior hotel doors... More

I was surprised by the size of the rooms. Try to get a corner room (they seem to be larger than the normal rooms). This is a great location if you are visiting Abilene Christian University or Hardin Simmons University. It is about 1 mile from the ACU campus. I do not know if they give any discounts for ACU...

The room was nice & comfy. Staff were friendly. Breakfast was not too good. Powdered eggs & dried out sausage are not appetizing. Most of the milk was expired. The cinnamon rolls were decent. The juice was good. The fruit was bruised. Sad breakfast.

Every time in the area, this is my stop. Upon my arrival, I was greeted by Mrs. Senta & Mrs. Priscilla, they gave me a warm welcome & made me feel right at home. Made sure my room was comfortable me. I applause these ladies for doing a outstanding job.

I stayed at this hotel with a coworker after a long road trip to go to a training. We were exhausted and this was a great place to crash. Comfortable beds, clean rooms, and great breakfast. I really appreciated that they had granola with the cereals. There were also lots of other choices like sausages, a pancake maker, yogurt, bagels,... More
