We stayed in Room 236. Room was older decor but clean. The vent in the bathroom is very loud, but there wasn't way to turn on the light in the bathroom and not have the vent on. Building was under renovation so maybe all rooms well get a refresh soon. Convenient location near some chain restaurants and close to Interstate... More

Preparing for a grandaughter to enter the university, we explored Abilene. Decided to stay here because of the good locaton. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast average under todays standards. Rating lowered because it is undergoing a much needed renovation. I will try other facilities in the vicinity and probably will return after remodeling is done.

Holiday Inn Express met our needs. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean comfortable room. We enjoyed our stay. On a side note I was somewhat disappointed with the breakfast. Not because of the food but because of the trash generated at breakfast. Styrafoam bowles, plates, and cups. Plastic silverware and cups. So much trash for such a small meal. The trash... More

Really enjoyed our stay at this HIE - they were kind, and helpful when I needed to get some milk and a muffin due to my blood sugar plummeting. Friendly and welcoming at breakfast - which was well stocked and clean. All in all comfortable and nice.

I had no major issues with this hotel, and with a corporate rate it was only slightly over priced for the area. The check in staff was efficient and friendly. I will agree with other reviews that the housekeeping needs a little work.

If the price had been $90, I would have thought it was an excellent value. But it was $109, so I didn't want a lumpy bed, lumpy pillows, or a lobby restroom as dirty as at a gas station. Otherwise, hotel was clean. The location was difficult to reach from Hwy 83.
