“Tried to go cheap and regretted it”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Old room. Bed was not comfortable. Free breakfast was a joke of stale bread, spoiled milk, with stale cereal. It was right by I-20 which made it difficult to sleep through the night because of all the traffic. Would not stay here again, even if it is one of the cheapest hotels in Abilene.

The clerk of the hotel was very friendly which makes me sad that he has to manage such a dump.

The bed was completely uncomfortable to the point of painful. We will not stay there again. The we're no pluses to any part of our stay other than the clerk at check in was very friendly. The room itself was barely cleaned but the clerk did promise that we would not be bothered by the other guests. Overall, this was not a pleasant stay and at previous America's Best Value stays have been acceptable. This one was not up to previously experienced standards. The rates were not cheap either which you would expect for a lower quality room. If we had not been so exhausted and picking the first motel we saw, we definitely would have gone further up the road for better choices. . . .

As far as cost are concerned you can't complain too much. However, cheap should not mean dirty, it wasn't a good idea to walk around barefoot in the room unless you wanted black dirty feet as the carpet was filthy.The rest of the room was was ok but it was quite dated and badly in need of some updating and modernising. Grounds ill kept. The hotel boasted a ice machine but that was the limit of its amenities. Manager of hotel pleasant and helpful. If you want cheap and nasty it would be OK for one night only. There are a limited choose of eating places within a couple of miles of the hotel.

The front staff of the hotel was nice enough. The hotel has obviously seen better days. I stayed here because it was cheap. The air conditioner does not work very well, when the maids come clean your room they turn off the air conditioner so if you're gone all day and come back the room is scorching. The hotel is right by I-20 so you hear cars go by all the time. I'm a heavy sleeper but I got up numerous times during the night because of it. Also the bed was hard and not comfortable at all.

The free breakfast was a joke. Stale white bread. Generic stale cereal. Milk that has spoiled. The lobby was hot when I went in.

Was in town for business and this place was recommended as cheap by someone who had not actually stayed there. I prepaid a month and was very disappointed. Room was never cleaned very well. Always could see dirt and bug body parts on floor so I knew that room was not being cleaned so started checking sheets on bed and stains were always in same locations so i assumed linens were also not being changed or cleaned. Checked out early and forfeited one weeks rent but still found unauthorized charges on credit card bill. Contested charges and credit card co. refunded but recommend driving by this place. Also noticed bugs in room that looked very similar to pictures of bed bugs on the internet but wasn't sure and just wanted out so didn't report, just left with a feeling of relief. do yourself a favor and stay away from this place.

Room Tip: Better places east or west on I-20.
