I travel to El Paso from Dallas and have to make a stop in Odessa. I have found the Scottish inn to be an affordable clean place to stop. It is a short drive (2hrs) from Odessa and I am back in El Paso well rested. In the past I had to plan around having to stay in Midland /... More

I've stayed in and worked in a lot of hotels and never have I experienced one as bad as this one! Upon arriving at the hotel the only thing they had going for them was the friendliness of the staff. Then the owners returned couple days later and were very rude! When we asked for bed sheets at 4pm because... More

We had two rooms here for one night last month during a motorcycle trip. It fit the bill for what we were looking for, as we always like to stay in smaller towns when we can, and we like a place where we can have our bikes parked right outside our rooms. This is an old motel and it shows,... More

We are on the last "leg" of two week road trip and under budget! Searching for nice, clean, comfortable stay for the last night. Hotels in all surrounding cities were very expensive, so decided on the Scottish Inn in Merkel, TX after reading Trip Advisor reviews. (Husband still asleep at 9:00 AM, so you know the beds are comfy.) Front... More

About 10 minutes outside Abilene I found this charming motel. It is clean and affordable. Not many restaurants in Merkel, TX so it was comforting to find the motel restaurant to be the best in the area as well. The rooms are clean and spacious with microwave and mini refrigerators with freezer. The Scottish Inn made my long road trip... More

I am always very impressed with the friendliness and curtesy. Helped with my bags up the stairs with each stay. That to me is going above and beyond. Clean and very comfortable rooms. I will be back for sure to stay here again! Highly recommend this Scottish Inn. Also last stay here I had some UPS boxes delivered and they... More

Located on site with Scottish Inn Motel, this restaurant is definitely one of the best places to eat along Interstate 20... Even though it is a small place, every meal is excellent... Hand-breaded chicken fried steaks, home-style pizzas, to an omelet for breakfast! This is not your ordinary motel diner... Fresh hot coffee is only 50 cents... Service the way... More

The owners were extremely nice and friendly, and went out of their way to help my friend and I when we had car trouble. If I'm ever back in the area I will surely pay a visit. The restaurant next door also has some good food!

My family and I were in the provess moving to Texas from California. We drove 3/4 of the way but got stuck when a freak storm (Cleon) caught up with us. We decided to try to push a little further but our car started acting strange and we barely made it to Scottish Inns & Suites in Merkel. The owners... More

I stayed at the Scottish Inn the weekend of college graduations in Abilene. (More about graduation later) When we first pulled into the parking lot, I wondered if I was in the right place after reading all of the good reviews. I went in and was greeted by the very friendly owners who booked my mom and I in adjoining... More
