Hands down the worst hotel that I have ever checked into. Thugs hanging out around the parking lot, bloodstained sheets, and piles of bugs in the bedding and behind the mattress. Had some difficulty getting our refund because of their "refunds only 10 minutes after purchase" nonsense. Do yourself a favor and stay ANYWHERE else.

The place was dirty; the bathroom walls needed a good cleaning and the showerhead had grim caked on it. We received one set of towels for two people. The pillows were very small and uncomfortable. We experience a great deal of noise at night, truck traffic and construction going on. It was the worse experience of our visit to Abilene...

As a traveler, my husband never knows just how long he will be staying in any hotel. He usually pays for the week and is refunded the difference if he leaves early. Recession or not ... the manager of this hotel took the money and LIED that he put the difference back on my husband's card. It's been 3 weeks...

My room smelled, there were stains all over the carpets and they appeared so dirty that I would not take my socks off for one minute, I completely pulled the comforter off the bed because it was disgusting, and I won't even get started on the bathroom. If your a germaphobe or just enjoy a clean room, then don't stay...

But I was too tired to care. they wouldnt let us get another room. The furniture is outdated. I felt like I...

I would look elsewhere for a hotel room, unless you don't have any other options. The bathtub had mildew around the top of it, and also had sand and baby roaches in the tub. The carpet in the room was old and stained. When I walked outside of my room, I got to see a huge pile of upholstered furniture,...

Wife and I stayed here during the Texas State Hog Rally in May 2006. Will NOT stay here again. There were mouse droppings in the dresser drawers and the lamp was hanging and about to fall out of the wall. And like most places where the Harley Motorcyle riders go for Rallys, they "Hijacked" us on the price.. Usually about...

This hotel is satisfactory for the price (very cheap). Rooms are 1960s look with minor renovations (paint and floor tiles). Furniture is original from 1960s. Appears to be clean and air conditioning works well.
