“An Okay Place to Stay”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

I found this place only by accident on at the end of an exhausting day of travel. I didn't have a reservation, I just walked up to the front desk and asked if they had any rooms available.

The bed wasn't the most comfortable thing I've ever slept in, but it worked. The shower was great after a very long day.

They seem to have some sort of construction going on. Half of the parking lot at the rear of the building is closed, as is the area in front of the doors to the lobby. Nonetheless there was still enough parking and I only had to walk a short distance to my car.

If I had to do it over again, I'd stay here again.

The reviews of this place were pretty good so we gave it a shot. I recommend booking online because it will give you a much better rate. It has been updated, so the bed was good and the room was clean. Our TV was not working, but they came and fixed it. It is pretty far off of 20 and expensive for what you get, so I probably would not stay there again.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for the recent review of your stay at our hotel. We are very sorry that there was a problem with your television and glad that our staff was able to get it fixed for you so quickly. Our hotel is several miles from I 20. However, it is conveniently located near the Mall of Abilene and there are numerous restaurants within walking distance. We hope that you will stay with us again the next time you are in Abilene.

In town for a basketball tournament and chose Best Western Whitten South because of the price. Very pleased with the cleanliness of the rooms and helpful attitudes of the staff. We stayed here last year as well and we convinced teammates' families to give it a try with us this year. Everyone was pleased. Great lobby area for the kids to hangout to play cards, chat, watch tv together...

Not a great looker from the outside, but the rooms were nice on the inside with their nice white bedding, comfy beds, fridge and microwave. We have the money to go more up market, but why spend money unnecessarily when you get a nice room for a short weekend stop in Abilene. The fridge was cold and quiet, the heater was warm and quiet and clean. Great to be able to bring dogs for only a few extra dollars. I don't like hotels with outdoor room access, but it was just fine and we all slept very well. The front desk staff was exceedingly helpful and accommodating and even gave us our choice of drinks on check-in. Glad we stayed there for the tennis tournament. We'll likely be back again some day.

The only reason it didn't receive EXCELLENT reviews is that the location was really hard to find and I couldn't get clear directions how to get there! Took me about 45 mins to find the hotel in a small town! Other than that, it was a nice place once I got there.

This Best Western was one of the best ones we have stayed in. The staff was friendly, the room was clean and comfortable. They even gave us complimentary wine when we checked in. Our stay was a very pleasant one and I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is traveling in the area.
