Comfort Suites University
Ranked #10 of 37 Hotels in Abilene
Reviewed 23 January 2013

Abilene, Texas is one of my favorite towns. It has great people, a lot to do (Paramount Theatre, Abilene Philharmonic, Frontier Texas, Buffalo Gap), good food (McKay's Bakery, Rick and Carolyn's burgers), and it's only a couple of hours from my home in Fort Worth.

The other weekend my wife and I drove out there to see "The Music Man" at the Paramount, and we stayed overnight at the Comfort Suites.

The room was large and comfortable. There was a divider between the living area and the bed, which gave the impression of being two rooms, though there was only one. The fridge was bigger than average for this sort of place, which is a nice plus if you've got a multi-day stay. The bed was fantastic, with a mattress that was neither too soft nor too firm. Despite being close to Interstate 20, the room was very quiet. Staff was friendly. Cookies at check-in were a tasty bonus.

Breakfast was free, and while nothing special in terms of taste, there were a lot of choices.

Only downside: Road construction that makes getting to the hotel a little challenging. Fine if you're headed westbound, but from any other direction you've got to know where to turn. (Hint: Take the road by the Lowe's entrance.)

Overall, I think this is my new favorite hotel in Abilene. Can't wait to visit again!

The service here was nice, but we wished it had an indoor pool and breakfast was not good. I had to ask twice for coffee and the eggs were those rubbery patties becoming too common at Comfort Inn and Comfort Suites properties. One very nice touch was a goody bag for each of us to acknowledge Choice Privileges status. The snacks were very timely!

Thank you for review, it seems that our hotel has been mistaken for another Comfort Suites hotel you stayed in, here in Abilene, we are located on Hwy I-20 and have an indoor pool and spa.
we appreciate you using Tripadvisor.
Thank you
Management

This hotel is just a few years old, is on I-20 at the extreme northern side of Abilene. We drove into Abilene for a funeral, spotted the hotel from the freeway, walked in around lunch time and were given exactly the kind of room we like: large, well appointed, top floor, the quiet side of the hotel. When we had a little trouble getting into the wireless network, a staff member came to the room and got us connected. She was personable, has worked for the Comfort chain planning new hotels, and we enjoyed meeting her and appreciated her help.

Because of its location at the edge of Abilene, this hotel may not be the best choice for people who have business in the heart of the city or at the medical complex.

Room Tip: We ask for a non-connecting room, top floor, quiet side of building and away from elevator.

Minor issues: hard to find (TomTom GPS sent me miles away), and heavy street construction complicated getting to the place, presumably a temporary issue (early Nov 2012). Otherwise very nice. Would be a big improvement if they had airport transportation but none of the Abilene hotels seem to have a shuttle.

This is a clean hotel with a decent rate. I have stayed here several times and will be back. The breakfast is average for this type of hotel and the service is above average. It is right off of 20 and has several chain restaurants close by.

The hotel was nice. Our room was clean and very nice. The view is not that great but wasn't really what we were going for. It's located close to everything: Restaurants, The Mall, Movies, Shopping, Etc. The pool is indoor and was great for our kiddos. The breakfast was yummy. Was a great stay and would recommend for other families.

I was promptly greated and offered a great price, free breakfast was enjoyable, kids even found it to be decent. Rooms cute and well kept for age. Found overall worth more than I paid. I feel it was better than expected for such a undesirable town.
