This is one of the left over 1970's Best Western in need of lot's of repair. We were tired and took what we could and they could tell. The room was dirty, A/C had leaked condensation all over carpet by the window. Room was dirty. Bath was dirty. Food was not fit to eat.
When I mentioned the leaking A/C the clerk said she wish she had known it. [--]!
Book at the Fairfield across the street. The price is probable the same. I was charged $110 for a real flee bag room.

Room Tip: Avoid the Best Western South in Abilene, Texas. This is a 1970's flee bag hotel which should be...

Typical hotel. Equivalent to motel 6. We left the room for a few hours. When we returned my son's wallet containing $65 was gone. N o one in management cared! Two maids did seem concern and search the room to see if they could find it. No luck! Not a very safe place to stay!

Dear Guest, As management, I was very concerned about your son's missing wallet. I was, in fact, one of the two maids that spoke with you and immediately went to your room to help look for the wallet. Our longtime housekeeper, who cleaned your room, said she never saw the wallet. Is it possible that it was lost elsewhere? We constantly strive to prove excellent guest service in a very safe, comfortable, and newly remodled property, which is why we are #3 on Trip Advisor in Abilene, Texas. Thank you for your review and we wish you luck in finding the wallet. Sincerely, R. Beck; Operations Manager

I was throughly impressed. My husband and sister in law like staying where they can pull up to the door. In reading the reviews for this place, I found the only bad point was they started cleaning up breakfast five minutes early, and yes they did, but was more than accomodating when my granddaughter asked for jelly. Hotel was extremely clean, newly remodeled, smelled and looked clean, very comfortable bed and extra pillows, plump towels! Breakfast excellent with wide variety. Pool was nice 3 to 5 ft, clean, even handicap lift for pool. Restuarants and shopping in walking distant (even mall close). Even Hyatt-type people would like this place.

Room Tip: We had lower level, facing street and still didn't hear traffic.

Staff were very friendly at check-in, helpful with finding restaurant locations, and check-out was very quick. Breakfast had a variety of items from which to choose so it was great. All exceeded our expectations so we would highly recommend this location.

Excellent motel that has just been remodeled. Located near the AFB and centrally located to the downtown area right off of a major freeway. Southwest of the downtown area. All new beds and interior accommodations make this the best stay for the money in Abilene, Tx. by far.

Best Western is quickly becoming my "go to" hotel brand....especially with the great military discounts they offer. We stayed here based on the other reviews and they didn't let us down. We would stay here again. It is an older hotel with outdoor corridors. But, the lobby and breakfast area are beautiful. Breakfast was plentiful and a good combination of warm and cold foods. The reception area gives free drinks (your choice...wine or beer) every evening which was an unexpected nice touch. The pool is outdoors behind the building and parking lot. But, it was very clean and warm enough for us to swim in several times. Staff were friendly. As stated at the beginning, I'd stay here again.

Don't let the age of this place fool you! We are SNOBS & travel worldwide, but this place was beyond our expectation for the price. GORGEOUS 2-story lobby with GIANT flat screen TV, plus complementary wine/beer happy hour. We usually stay at much pricier hotels but relied on TripAdvisor for this well-ranked hotel. Love the "soft light" energy bulbs vs. "creepy sci-fi" bulbs at other hotels. Minor point to some, but ambiance is important, so attention to detail is appreciated. Sparkling, functional rooms. Old-school hotel allows parking right outside your door, no traipsing through central corridor. Not disappointed. #2 ranking well-deserved!

Room Tip: East side room to avoid western sun in summer.
