We were greeted warmly. The lobby was comfortable. Our room was clean, the bed was comfortable. The breakfast attendant was lovely, as well as the rest of the staff. I will say that the breakfast was lacking meat, selection of breads and fruit.

We always enjoy our visits to Abilene and our stays at the Whitten Inn. The rooms are clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff is terrific! The longevity of the front desk staff speaks volumes about the Inn. They are friendly and their prompt attention to details is appreciated.

The staff is extra helpful. It's a reasonable place to stay. Close to stores if need to find something. Older hotel. It works in a pinch. We were on the ground floor, so our car was close by the room. Restaurants are close by......

Went to Abilene to see my niece for family weekend at ACU, and had a wonderful time. Desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Yes, the building was older, but you can tell the bathrooms had been re-done and the bed was very comfortable. The rooms were VERY clean, and had a microwave and mini fridge.

This is an older property that has been maintained. Not much in the way of upgrades or improvements but still okay. The room rate is a little high for what you get but still not bad. The brightest spot is the staff. They are extra friendly and accommodating. I will stay here again.
