We tend to have good experiences at Holiday Inn Express, so we always book this brand when possible. The Abilene HIE did not disappoint. Check-in and check-out were very efficient, our complimentary breakfast had many choices and all tasted great, and I had access to the 24hr fitness room, in which all equipment was in good working condition. No surprises... More

Nice, clean and the staff was very helpful. The business center was still "under construction" so the front desk allowed me to print on their system. Awesome!!! An act like this is what keeps me coming back to Holiday Inn Express.

I had a great stay at the hotel on I-20 at first hard to find, but once we found it we were really impressed with it's results, it is looking really amazing, it is coming along quite nicely, met all our standards even with a renovation going on, I would definitely recommend to a friend!

I have stayed at this hotel multiple times throughout the last few years, it is under going a very much needed renovation. Looking past the construction that is never a good sight for travelers, the staff are very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend staying in this hotel whether you are passing through or staying for a while.

Hotel is in process on renovations but still meets standards expected from a HIE property. New rooms on 3rd floor are nicely done. Staff was extremely friendly, and due to a booking snafu they gave us 2 king rooms instead of a double queen. My 18yo college freshman to be was thrilled!!!!!

Preparing for a grandaughter to enter the university, we explored Abilene. Decided to stay here because of the good locaton. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast average under todays standards. Rating lowered because it is undergoing a much needed renovation. I will try other facilities in the vicinity and probably will return after remodeling is done.
