“Choice hotel when visiting family”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

This is a very nice hotel with very friendly staff. We try & reserve the larger 2 room suite with a separate living area and although those are limited when we can book early enough it is the way to go. The pool area is very nice with cooler areas to sit & watch the kids swim. The breakfast is excellent and far better than many "free" breakfasts we have had. Super clean & modern and close to several restaurants and Wal Mart.

Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience with us and future guests! Your description of the pool courtyard and the 2-bedroom suite will be helpful to others when choosing to stay at the Residence Inn by Marriott in Abilene. Our friendly staff make the difference and our team strives to ensure that you feel right at home - including a "home" cooked breakfast - during your stay! Thanks for mentioning the local businesses that are close to the hotel and we are looking forward to a couple of new restaurants being built in the coming months just minutes from us as well! We look forward to seeing you again!

Close to airport, away from 'main of town' but walmart, chilis, cracker barrel all within 2 minutes. Great breakfast with plain and flavored eggs, parfaits, yogurts toast etc. Only complaint is with the complimentary printers....out of paper every time I sat down and desk staff not as supportive when troubles. Also my keys were demagnetizing more than usual. Wish I would have brought my bathing suit the pool with mini water feature looked inviting in the 100 degree weather.

This seems like a new hotel in a developing area as lots of building work seeming to be going on in area but very quiet. We had a 2 bedroom suite and it was absolutely wonderful. Well worth the money - we paid $219 a night. After a long road trip it was pleasant to be able to relax away from one another. Teenager son has his own room and a living room inbetween us and his room. Television in each room. Each bedroom had its own bathroom/shower. We will always look for Residence Inn's on future trips.

Room Tip: If you want space and peace from the kids ask for a 2 bedroom suite. Well worth the price.

Staying at this hotel felt like staying with family. The staff greeted us, gave us directions/maps, fed us two meals, and would have bought us groceries if we needed them. Our room, which was almost a small apartment, was clean, comfortable, and stylish. I doubt we'll ever stay anywhere else in Abilene.

This hotel would be a perfectly good and reliable Residence Inn by Marriott, it just has amazing service, with friendly staff who stretch to meet your travel needs. I have stayed here several times, but this time I made the reservation online, mistakenly through a third party, and they reserved the wrong type of room for me. When I arrived yesterday, the hotel was fully booked and it looked like there was no possibility to change. The manager came out and after searching, she figured out how to make the correct type of room available. This was very important to me!

Looking for a place to house guests and family members for a wedding, I discovered this jewel of a hotel not far from a growing retail and restaurant community in Abilene. The hotel's restaurant was buzzing with guests eating a free dinner meal and enjoying the view of the gated swimming pool and fountains. The hotel also provideed a free full breakfast and the rooms housed a full-sized frig and microwave in a large kitchen with sink and granite countertops. Bathrooms were also large and well-designed. Marriott Residence Inn was an excellent value for five rooms for three nights.

I choose the Residence Inn based on my Marriott Rewards membership and the fact that this Abilene property accepted pets. This was my initial stay at this property and it was extremely clean and attractive; I got the impression that it was fairly new.

My room was a decently sized suite style with a king bed, sitting area with a pull out sofa as well as a work desk. The room was equipped with a fully functional kitchen including a full size refrigerator and dishwasher. Guests could eat on a dining counter with two barstools. I really like the touch of cloth napkins and real wine glasses. Also, the flat screen TV swiveled so you could watch it whether you were lying in bed, or eating on the counter or sitting on the sofa.

The lobby itself was nice and attractive as well with a decently sized dining room that provided complimentary hot snacks during the evening and a variety of breakfast items to choose from in the morning including eggs, bacon and sausage.

The property also had a nice pool area with an outdoor grill. One minor inconvience was ingress to the property off of I-20 eastbound; one had to do a bit of a jig and jog to get to the property. I had called the front desk enroute prior to my arrival and they provided me with specific instructions on how to access the property off of I-20.

I would have given this Residence Inn an "Excellent Rating" but for one important negative factor: the coffee served in the lobby had to be some of the worst tasting coffee I've ever drunk.
