We stayed at the Whitten Inn in Van Horn, TX on our way to Abilene, Tx. Found it through GPS but of course it was still listed as a Best Western. Our very clean room was perfect for the two of us...King size bed, with 29" flat screen TV, Refridgerator, microwave, All on 1 floor. Plus a smoking room to boot. All for $54.00 and some change. Would definetly spend the night here again and would totally recommend it.

Room Tip: Don;t let the looks of the older property fool you. Had a very restful night and there a over 150 r...

The Witten Inn is an older property. The rooms are small. It is across the road from the railroad tracks. That being said the rooms are very clean, the rooms are adequate for two people and the trains do not whistle at this end of town so we did not hear then during the night. A couple now manages the property and they are very personable and are on site 24 hours a day. The room was spotless. and the bed was comfortable. There is a free laundry. The best part is that with a coupon from hotelcoupon.com, the room was $39.99. You can't beat that.

Room Tip: get a room closer to the office to avoid road and train noise

An old motor court has risen as a nice little motel. Exterior has Adobe appearance. Rooms are done in subdued tones. Furniture includes King Size Bed, Side Boy with Micro Wave, small frige and flat screen TV with 29 Cable Channels. All of this on a single floor, no one over your head. Park at your door. Sit on the veranda and watch the sun go down, chairs provided. Several Restaurants are in the area. Price is right. Oh yes,, nice mattress on the bed. Van Horn, is a strange little town. Mix of old and new, plus Anglo and Mexican.

We stayed at the Whitten Inn Van Horn when we couldn't find accomodations in nearby Pecos. The new management are a lovely couple. Very friendly and helpful. The room was clean. There is on-site laundry. Breakfast had fresh fruit, oatmeal, biscuits and gravy, juice and a variety of baked goods. The Valentine's Candies and decorations in the hotel lobby gave a very personal feel to the office. The steakhouse next door (not owned by the hotel) had excellent food and good service. They too were decorated for Lovers.

I'd gladly stay here again.
