“Beware of Dirty Hotel”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2010

We stayed one night to check this place out to see if we wanted to book it for extended stay. Boy, are we glad we did! The lobby is new and clean but that's where it ends. The room smelled, the furniture was dusty, the carpet wasn't vaccumed, cockroaches!!!, there was someones drinking straw wrapper and hair on the sink counter, hair and dirt on the bathroom floor, no toilet paper or kleenex, there were loud popping and creaking noises coming from the walls and ceilings all the time and I sat in one of the stained chairs to find the back was broken. We did not even think about taking a shower in this place. We felt we were cleaner NOT showering. If you think you want to stay here, just sleep in your car!

I took a large group of kids to Abilene. Since there was so much going in Abilene that weekend, Budget Host was the only Hotel left. Bob the owner told my travel agent that they had a working pool. Upon arrival we found out that the pool was nasty, smelly and green. One could not see past a few inches into the water. Some students reported having HUGE roaches in their rooms, and there was a soiled towel in my room and a soiled towel in the student's room next to mine. Breakfast was old chewy cereals, warm milk and a microwave. One kid did find the fruit, a banana. One, banana was all of their "fresh fruit" offerings on their breakfast. One kid left their phone charger. We called and owner Bob said he would "gladly send it to us." 3 weeks later he finally sent it, COD, charging us $10 for mailing it to us, for a total charge of $18 for our charger. I found him to be dishonest and a cheat. No one should ever ever stay at this hotel, unless you have a pet lizard you want to eat the giant roaches.

Stayed April 2008
