I had been driving through Texas and needed a place to stay. This hotel was priced great for my budget! I called ahead, but didn't arrive until late into the night. The staff were very friendly and welcomed me at the late hour. It was a very quiet area and I was able to get some nice rest. I was... More

We came to Merkel for a granddaughter's wedding and stayed three nights. Our experience booking the room in advance was very good, as we also made arrangements for additional family member rooms. We found management to be professional, accommodating, very helpful and personable. The room was very clean, had everything we needed and all for a reasonable price. If you... More

While driving through Texas we pulled off for the night to stay at the Scottish Inn in Merkel, TX. I liked how it was right off the highway, it is perfect for road trips, so you don't have to drive through a city just to get to a hotel. Upon arrival the owner, Andy, was very friendly and helped us... More

The room I stayed in smell like cigarettes. The owner told me more than once that my room was non-smoking. Wow! Could of fooled me. This place is great for a stop late at night to get off the road and leave early in the morning to get back on the road. Cold AC!

Merkel is just a few miles out of Abilene. We reserved a room here after discovering that all the rooms in Abilene were booked due to three colleges scheduling their graduation ceremonies on the same weekend. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful! The room was clean and we felt safe in the area. The rooms at Scottish Inn could... More

I thought I just finished the review,oh well, here it is again. I pulled in late at night attracted by reasonable rates and good reviews~ and everything lived up to it. The pleasant and conversant owners, Andy and Elizabeth work hard to ensure that your stay will be a pleasant one. Minutes from Abilene~ good deal.

We stopped at this place out of necessity. The roads were too scary for me and my daughter to pass. The owner or mgr. was so friendly, so helpful, so kind. It's old school, inexpensive accommodations. But, it fits the bill. What went above and beyond was the helpfulness and attention they paid to our stay experience. The restaurant was... More

The stay at this hotel was an unexpected one, but nevertheless very welcomed one. The people at this hotel are very friendly and run a good business. Don't expect a fancy hotel, but a family working class hotel. The rooms are cheap, and could use some renovation. However it being the only hotel in the area there is no reason... More

On New Year's Day 2015, we were forced off of I-20 by the big ice storm and were very grateful to find shelter in the Scottish Inn & Suites. The proprietors worked very hard to accommodate everyone and were extremely kind, friendly, hospitable, and delightful. Our room was clean, comfortable and spacious with 2 Queen beds and a Queen fold-out... More

Based strictly on the personal touch, this motel is a 10. Andy and Elizabeth bent over backwards for all of us folks stranded due to the ice storm that went through this part of Texas over the new year 2015. Owners did not take advantage of the situation - room rates were reasonable. They have pet friendly rooms and room... More
