Made reservation online and a week in advance. Checked in and all was in order. Clean room, good working A/C, very nice shower. Breakfast was great too. All and all, an excellent stay! Definitely would stay here again!

Everyone was just wonderful at this hotel (with the slight exception of Alice). Lovely pool and breakfast. Meeting room great. Staff very accommodating to family reunion held multiple times at this location. Alecia is just wonderful if you need to make reunion plans for your family. Thank you Residence Inn and see you again in two years for next reunion.

Room Tip: Pay attention to the construction when entering hotel please!

It was a pretty standard new Residence Inn, and there are a lot of things in the area, but it is set back from the other businesses and a little awkward to get to especially with the ongoing construction.

Thanks so much for sharing your comments about getting to the hotel and where we are located. We are in a newly developing area of Abilene and appreciate you mentioning the new businesses in the area! We are excited to have many new restaurants near our hotel. We are glad you mentioned the new construction in the area to make access better for our future guests. Our friendly staff are a phone call away to assist in directions to the hotel and we look forward to seeing you again!

My family and I stayed here for four days. The service was outstanding, and the room was immaculate. All members of the staff were extremely friendly. Although the pool was too small, I would definitely recommend this hotel.

This is a very nice hotel with very friendly staff. We try & reserve the larger 2 room suite with a separate living area and although those are limited when we can book early enough it is the way to go. The pool area is very nice with cooler areas to sit & watch the kids swim. The breakfast is excellent and far better than many "free" breakfasts we have had. Super clean & modern and close to several restaurants and Wal Mart.

Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience with us and future guests! Your description of the pool courtyard and the 2-bedroom suite will be helpful to others when choosing to stay at the Residence Inn by Marriott in Abilene. Our friendly staff make the difference and our team strives to ensure that you feel right at home - including a "home" cooked breakfast - during your stay! Thanks for mentioning the local businesses that are close to the hotel and we are looking forward to a couple of new restaurants being built in the coming months just minutes from us as well! We look forward to seeing you again!

Close to airport, away from 'main of town' but walmart, chilis, cracker barrel all within 2 minutes. Great breakfast with plain and flavored eggs, parfaits, yogurts toast etc. Only complaint is with the complimentary printers....out of paper every time I sat down and desk staff not as supportive when troubles. Also my keys were demagnetizing more than usual. Wish I would have brought my bathing suit the pool with mini water feature looked inviting in the 100 degree weather.

Maybe next time stay with us and enjoy our complimentary evening dinner also during the weekdays with salad bar and complimentary wine/beer. Thank you also for letting us know about the paper in the printer and we have taken care of it. We definitely look forward to seeing you back again to enjoy our pool and cool, refreshing water fountains!

This seems like a new hotel in a developing area as lots of building work seeming to be going on in area but very quiet. We had a 2 bedroom suite and it was absolutely wonderful. Well worth the money - we paid $219 a night. After a long road trip it was pleasant to be able to relax away from one another. Teenager son has his own room and a living room inbetween us and his room. Television in each room. Each bedroom had its own bathroom/shower. We will always look for Residence Inn's on future trips.

Room Tip: If you want space and peace from the kids ask for a 2 bedroom suite. Well worth the price.
