“Not a great value (for West Texas)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2003

I paid $54 (plus tax) for my room that same night. It seemed expensive, but I was tired and needed a room.While driving around in Abilene later that evening, I saw their billboards which said a room was only about $38.They seem to have two locations. The one I stayed at did not offer free breakfast. There is a restaurant which would (obviously) charge separately.

Thanks to the Whitten Inn what looked like a ruined family reunion was saved. They had accomodations for 12 rooms, served a nice breakfast and we had use of a banquet room at the other location for the reunion. Thanks to the friendly staff and the clean facilities. You can tell the inns are AMERICAN owned and operated. Thanks again--we will be back!!!

For the price it was the best hotel I have ever stayed in... For $48 dollars the room included a refrigerator, micrwave, iron and ironing board. The rooms were of a good size and the beds were very comfortable. But the best was the staff, they were friendly and helpful. The pool was a definite plus, it was larger than most hotel pools that you find. All this and a super continental breakfast... I will stay there again, when I go back to Abilene!!!! I went to a much higher priced hotel in the area that some friends were staying at and our room was every bit as nice, for half the price!!!! A thoroughly enjoyable stay, good job folks!!!
