“Great motel awesome beds”
Reviewed 12 May 2013 via mobile

Great motel staff is awesome
3rd time staying awesome beds
I drive a semi and other than parking is tight the motel is great! There is nothing to eat around close except for a Denny's across the interstate.

Reviewed 29 April 2013

While we had no complaints about the general quality of the room, bed, etc., this hotel has one serious problem. The lighting in the room was so dim that you couldn't even sit and comfortably read a book. There were three lights in the room, not including the bath. One was an overhead CFL bulb in a recessed ceiling fixture, which meant that the light only covered a very small area,. The second was a 9-watt CFL bulb in a bedside table lamp that appeared to give about the equivalent light of a 25-watt incandescent bulb. The third was a 13-watt CFL in a floor lamp. There was no light on the computer desk, and only the one bedside lamp. Complaints to the desk clerk elicited the response that other patrons had also complained, but no offer was made to do anything about the situation. Since this was an "accessible" room, the lighting constitutes an unacceptable safety hazard.

My first time at a Sleep Inn. We had preferred Holiday Inn Express to most others but now we have another favorite. Clean, good bed, and all-round nice place. I look forward to staying at other Sleep Inns.

Room Tip: We paid 84 plus tax on a Sunday night.

Spent almost a week here during the week of my daughter's wedding in October 2012. I truly found myself saying "going home" when referring to the hotel. All of the staff, esp. the manager, were so friendly and welcoming and made us feel like family visiting. They were always so helpful and interested in what was going on with the wedding! We ended up having both whole families (about 10 rooms) stay here and everyone agreed that it was a wonderful hotel with fantastic staff!!! So ready to help in any way! Would recommend it to anyone and we will be back!

It was pretty standard for a Sleep Inn except for the large rooms. Most of these hotels have rather small rooms. This one had a large comfortable room. The beds were awesome and the breakfast was well above standard fare. The staff was great as well. The only drawback was how difficult it was to get to. On the frontage road and almost a mile from the nearest turnaround off the highway. This is the Texas way though...

We stayed here for two nights while dropping our son off at university for the semester. We choose this hotel because we had such a nice experience here in May. This trip was no different. The manager, Mary, even remembered our names and welcomed us back! She was obviously busy, but took a few minutes to speak to us, and to ask my son about his classes. Such personal, dedicated service is so refreshing! The entire staff is great, and the hotel is clean and nicely decorated. We will certainly be back again soon!

My first time to stay at this Sleep Inn and Suites. What a great surprise! Very clean and open lobby...extremely friendly and helpful check-in person...exceptionally clean rooms and lobby...my family had 2 rooms and this was a fantastic choice. I would highly recommend the Sleep Inn and Suites in Abilene.
