2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2013

They appeared to be very short staffed. The room overall was shabby - everything (except the TV) was old and worn. The AC did work, but you could see down into the unit and it was filthy - caked with hair and dirt, etc. The carpet was also extremely dirty.....not that the sweeper hadn't been run, but just walking around in dark pink sox turned the dark pink to black. The toilet never flushed properly - took two or three tries every time - while you held your breath wondering if it would overflow. Both beds were rock hard - there were no blankets, just the top sheet and the bedspread. The linings on the bottom of the mattresses were torn and hung down on the floor. There were two of us staying in the room - booked for 3 nights. When we arrived there were 3 towels and 3 washclothes in the bathroom. When we needed additional towels and washclothes, we were told they were 'out'. And absolutely no apology was given nor was any attempt ever made to provide more. There's a bar/lounge on the property - it's very noisy. We were quoted one price per night and then charged a higher price. We won't be staying there again.

Room Tip: Take your own towels and washclothes - and maybe blankets! Stay in a room as far away from the bar...

i recently stayed at the Whitten Inn Expo for the last week . i would like to throw out the many pros this hotel has to offer. The staff was wonderfull. The lounge was a good enviroment to wind down each evening and the location was perfect for each event i needed to attend. great rates and friendly faces is exactly what i like to see in a hotel. Housekeeping was great, never missed a beat. Over all i am very pleased with my visit and will always stay at the Whitten Inn Expo when i return to Abilene!!
