“Great Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

When Priceline revealed this was my hotel for two nights, I was a bit disappointed. I stayed at this property several years ago and was not pleased. However, this stay was completely different. The Whitten's bought this hotel and completely updated it. Although the lobby, guest room and breakfast area was impressive, what I will remember most is the friendliness of the staff. They were very helpful and welcoming. I definitely will stay here again.

I am on the road 300 days out of the year and have recently stayed at just Best Westens to rack up points for an up coming trip. After staying at several Best Westerns This one rates top in service and friendliness and they have hard boild eggs which is wonderful for us health nuts who like to eat egg whites only.
It mak not be a brand new hotel with inside rooms but all rooms are modern updated clean have bath matts which is a plus they put extra extra car in there room and service. I have actually stayed there several times and everytime I go to Abilene that is my hotel of choice. It is safe and friendly clean clean and American Owned and Operated.. I LOVE THAT

Room Tip: I like in the back near the pool

The Best Western Whitten South hotel was an overall great experience as a guest. The staff was on the mark on everything and worked to make things happen. The best they offered was their friendliness and service and felt helped throughout my entire 2 week stay. The continentel breakfast became a perfect start for my day to get ready for the day's work. Definetley will be coming back here my next business trip.

Besides having very comfortable rooms, the hotel lobby is very beautifully decorated. Quality art, flowers and furniture adorn the lobby and tv room. A nice surprise was the upstairs meeting room that is open to the lobby. It made a nice reading area for me while I waited for my wife to recover from an illness. She was comfortable in our room and I was comfortable in the upstairs meeting area. The dining area provided all our breakfast needs.

It is obvious to the guests that the owners take great pride in decorating the lobby with beautifully art, plus a few interesting items that make it unique.
