I am a college student parent and will need to come and stay in Abilene often, so I have been trying different accommodations near I-20 about 5 mins from ACU. The hotel is older but I found my room decent, clean and the bedding was comfortable with plenty of pillows. There were NO BED BUGS anywhere (I checked). The staff made me feel at ease from the moment I called in for a reservation and they called ahead to ensure all would be to my liking. I got a room facing the pool so I could be far from the street noise so I slept well with no disturbances.
I give this hotel thumbs up for allowing small pets (with a super reasonable fee) in crates. Sometimes I need to travel to the area with my little Yorkie and it is nice to know she is welcomed.
The breakfast room was ample and I had good coffee and a freshly baked waffle, my son had a muffin and some juice.
Parking was difficult but nothing to be uptight about. While the room was a non-smoking room, I would prefer that there were smoking areas designated outside and away from room halls so those of us with severe allergies do not have to deal with smoking patrons.
The tv worked nicely, I had a small fridge w a freezer compartment and the shower had plenty of hot water. I would really like to see shampoo, conditioner and lotion bottles in addition to the wall soap dispensers, but again, this is not the Waldorf. It is a small, nice, comfortable, older hotel with a very friendly staff that makes sure one feels welcome. Reasonable rates make it affordable to come often.
