“Is this a resort or what?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

My wife were driving back to our home in Frisco, TX from our timeshare at Marriott's Shadow
Ridge in Palm Desert, CA. Rather than drive another 3 to 4 hours and reach Fort Worth
during the evening commuting chaos we elected to stay at Marriott's Residence Inn in Abilene.
From the moment we walked into the lobby and was greeted so kindly by David at the front desk
to the next morning's buffet breakfast we honestly believed we were at a resort.

We stayed in what David coined as a studio. It was grand with all of the amenities of our one
bedroom villa at Shadow Ridge. We were informed that at 6 PM refreshments would be served
in the lobby. Refreshments turned out to be beer, wine and an assortment of soft drinks, the
makings for a delish salad, hot and tasty chili adobe pie and desert yogurt and pudding.

Breakfast in the morning was one of the best we have ever experienced. I won't describe but
it was extraordinary with two types of scrambled eggs and all the breakfast fixings.

All of the staff we encountered including our new friend David were as pleasant and helpful as
could be. It was just great.

My husband and I were traveling and stayed here a few nights ago. Reservation was easily made while on the road. Check in was very friendly and easy, room was very clean and generous in size. Internet, parking, and full hot breakfast are included in the price. This hotel is pet friendly as well.

I have stayed at this hotel several times, but my last stay was truly outstanding. I arrived tired and had accidentally not booked my stay for quite long enough. It was a very busy time for the hotel, but David (handling the front desk) and the manager went out of their way to accommodate my need (even though the mistake was solely mine). This hotel is always clean, safe, and the staff friendly and helpful. But this time, they really went the extra mile. Well done Residence Inn in Abilene. -- Carri

We werr on the way thru Abilene and needed a hotel for one night. Got a great price on Priceline and oulled off. The man at the front desk was so friendly and you walk into a very inviting check in area...comfortable couch with fire place crackling in the background. The have several restaurant selections right there and all new. There is a nice new Walmart as well if you need to restock anything. The breakfast is a great bonus for being free! There is a nice looking swimming pool but a lil too cold this trip (21 degrees). Its worth the stay if you need a hotel for a few nights in that area. Would be great for someone who was there for work.

This place is amazing! The rooms are super clean, huge, and very private! Has a kitchen!

Breakfast is included. They have waffles, eggs, bacon, coffee, fruit, cereal... You name it.

What also makes this place very nice is the staff. They are super
Friendly and go out of their way to answer questions and make sure you are taken care of.

Would stay here again in a heart beat!

I stayed for 5 days for Business and the Corporate price is reasonable. It includes breakfast and dinner (Monday to Thursday only). The reception is professional I did not feel a warm welcome but an A OK. The closet mirror is dirty, overall quality if cleanliness is just fine. The King Suite is beatiful with kitchen - just perfect if I sant to cook a meal. Walmart is nearby but Mall is far. A good 12 minutes to work so it is fine. There is a lot of construction near the area so Dont rely on GPS.

Thank you for taking time to write a review about the Residence Inn. We definitely agree that we have spacious rooms with a great kitchen to make it convenient for our guest. We apologize for the oversight of the closet door. We do hope that we will see you in the future and hope that the construction will be finished by then also. Have a great day and thank you again!

Quiet and restful, newer location. Beds were very comfortable. Very clean. Didn't need the kitchenette but it looked very well stocked. Had king bed room with fold out sofabed. Sofabed mattress looked typical, wouldn't recommend it for long stay, king bed was extremely comfortable. Very friendly staff and nice free breakfast, eggs, fruit, sausage, waffles and pancakes, etc. Hallways clean, well lit and nice, welcoming lobby. Only small complaint was strong cooking smell that permeated room and hallway.. to be expected with kitchenettes. Great parking.
