The bed was clean and comfortable, and I love the dial soap dispenser in the shower!!! But what made this stay really amazing was the staff. My mother in law had a mild heart attack while we were here for an overnight stay. Melissa and Angel at the front desk were really efficient and called 911 for us. We had to extend our stay for several days and didn't see Melissa or Angel anymore during our stay, but Donna at the front desk was wonderful as well. We kept them informed of my mother in laws condition, [she had to have 2 stints put in] and they allowed us to stay and only charged us the original room rate that we first check in at, [we had a coupon]. The ladies were so kind and thoughtful. My husband and I left the area after my mother in law had her stints put in, but my brother and sister in law came from Huntsville and stayed an additional 3 days to take the parents back home. We will all be glad to stay here again when passing through Abilene.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are nice and quiet.

This is a basic, no frills hotel, but very clean. Staff is extremely nice and accommodating. Rooms are very clean. Complimentary continental breakfast is a little lean, but OK. Great value for nightly rate. Would definitely stay again.

A Clean bed and wifi were what we were looking for. If you are accustomed to using the hotel soap and shampoo, you won't find it here. I always bring my own so wasn't bothered by not having it. There was an iron, coffee maker, tv, wifi, table and chairs and 1 living room type chair. If you are low on money and in Abilene, this place is a thumbs up.

Perfect for an overnight stay. The room was clean and tidy but the bathroom was a bit on the small side. The pool was not available which again was a bit of a disappointment to us. We got a bit confused at reception as they tried to sell us pillows....
Breakfast was simple.

Please don't stay here. This is what we saw the morning after. But they had to come change the sheets on the other bed day one. The manager changed us to a clean room and offered a $20.00 refund for the first night. They said it was no the standard but I felt it was. Every hotel was booked that weekend. Claiming they were 4 stars no way. Don't do it
