This is an older property that has been maintained. Not much in the way of upgrades or improvements but still okay. The room rate is a little high for what you get but still not bad. The brightest spot is the staff. They are extra friendly and accommodating. I will stay here again.

The hotel was great. You walk through the doors at the hotel and the staff was wonderful. They were very friendly and funny. The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. The sheets were clean without stains and hair. I will stay here again when I am in Abilene.

Stayed overnight when our reservation at another hotel was lost. Front desk was very accommodating and gave us what was most likely the last room. Rooms were clean, and the breakfast area and lobby nicely decorated. Staff very friendly and attentive.
