The Whitten Inn has become our stopping point for the first leg of our return trip from Arizona. We have stayed several times and have not been disappointed. This trip was no exception. This is a nice hotel close to shopping, fuel, and food. The rooms have refrigerators and microwaves. The staff members are all friendly and helpful. One tip, get a copy of the hotel coupon book as you enter Texas the rate is about ten dollars cheaper than the regular rate and should be honored unless there is a special event in town.

Female traveling alone and felt perfectly safe.
Cleanest hotel shower ever. Cute shampoo and hand soap dispensers.
Ok beds.
Breakfast was decent.
Loved the super clean, super huge front windows.

I was driving from Dallas to El Paso and had gotten a late start. I wanted to make it to Big Spring but the rain made driving miserable, so I decided to call it a night around Abilene. I did a quick google search and found the Whitten Inn met my requirements - good price and comfortable room. The review was correct. I got there after midnight and fortunately they had a room available. The front desk clerk was very friendly and efficient and in no time I was in my room. The room had a king sized bed and was clean and well kept. The TV worked great. The bed was very comfortable. Also, I forgot to add that there is a convenience store next door, so I grabbed some water and a few snacks. I had a great night sleep -
so good that I slept past my alarm and got on the road two hours later than I had planned. But it was fine, I needed the sleep. I will keep Whitten Inn in mind next time I need to stay in Abilene.

I was put here for a night by my company, and I was a little skeptical looking at the motel from the outside. But after my stay I was reminded that modest doesn't mean shabby. Clean and well kept room and facilities and friendly staff made for a better night than I was expecting. Would recommend!

Price was OK. Room was OK. Desk staff at checkin were the worst I've ever encountered. I could write an essay on how inept they were. Had a reservation. 2 people at the checkin desk. Took me 30 minutes for the most insane of reasons. My hotel? They wouldn't have lasted until the end of the shift.

Room Tip: Good luck with the desk.
