We are driving across the country from San Diego to Virginia Beach. We stayed for one night at the Residence Inn Marriott Abilene and could not have been more pleased. We were warmly greeted by the front desk clerk named Johnny. He was very friendly and gave us a great deal on a king suite at a military rate. We checked in around dinner time and he informed us about the free dinner (included with the room). We didn't eat, but what a great deal! Our suite had a full kitchen and was very clean. Bed was super comfy, nice gym, great full, hot breakfast. All of the staff are so friendly and helpful. Johnny called to our room shortly after we checked in to see if we liked our room. We loved it! We also wanted a good Texas steak for dinner and he recommended a great, close restaurant. I highly recommend this hotel (just off I-20) if you are staying in Abilene!

I had originally booked at another hotel and had read bad reviews online so I switched to this hotel. So happy with my choice! Every staff member I came in contact with was extremely friendly and polite. The rooms are nice and the bedroom is separated from the living space. 2 flat screen tvs with a variety of channels. Nice little details down to a jar of candy. Free breakfast buffet and evening social that I did not participate in. The only problems I had were the elevator smelled like a wet dog the whole time, my door was knocked on twice by housekeepers who had thought I had checked out already (they immediately apologized and left. Were very nice as well), and the night audit lady was not as friendly as the other staff members. She was polite but not up to the standard of the rest of the staff. Special thanks to Alice who was absolutely wonderful!!

We have stayed at the Residence Inn, Abilene, many times as we travel across Texas and we are always amazed at the courteous staff and wonderful accommodations. It's lmost like being at home - even if it's your first stay. Guests are warmly greeted and provided excellent service. The happy hour/evening meal and the breakfast are wonderful for a moderately priced hotel. If you ever find yourself in Abilene, this is the place to spend the night - or week!

My husband and I were visiting Abilene, Texas from California for a family reunion and stayed in a 2-bedroom, 2-bath suite with my sister and her husband. This has to be the nicest Residence Inn we have ever stayed in. The staff was so helpful and friendly. The breakfast is a full breakfast and very good. I highly recommend this hotel and if we ever get back to Abilene, we would definitely stay here.

Room Tip: The 2 bedroom, 2 bath suite with a living room and kitchen area is great for 2 couples or families.

When we arrived the lady behind the counter seemed a little tired or irritated and made no eye contact with us, but the manager stepped in and went out of his way to welcome us. He even offered us ice cream, so all was OK. All that being said, the room was fine and the bed was comfortable. The A/C had a setting to run all night (a deal breaker for us these days) and was a nice spacious setup for us traveling with our adult daughter. The kitchen was well-equipped and very pretty. We would return there the next time we’re in Abilene.

Read trip advisor and checked in late at nIght. The room was great. Traveling with kids they had a pull out sofa and popcorn and a shopping list in the room. I wish we could enjoy the nice hotel longer. Pretty pool and exercise area.
