Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Karen R Avoid this hotel
When I arrived, there was debris on the carpets and the sink was stopped up. I notified the front desk about the sink but not the carpets thinking housekeeping made an honest mistake. The next evening I arrived to a draining sink but a slow one and the same debris on the carpets. I notified the front desk and they advised a request for a full service cleaning of the room would be submitted. Third day, I arrived to the same debris on the carpets so I went back to the front desk and asked if I could borrow a vacuum so I could clean them myself. They sent the maintenance man to my room and he agreed the carpets were quite dirty and he would submit a request to steam clean them himself. Finally, on my fourth day, I arrived to clean carpets thanks to the maintenance man.

Very clean hotel and what a great staff. You won't find a staff any nicer and more willing to help. I can't say enough good about them. The hotel was very clean and neat.

Air conditioning was poor.
It is recommended to re charge the A/C unit.
Pool water was really cold

Less than expected - based on staying at dozens of other Holiday Inn Expresses. While I will normally look for HIE first, Abilene is an exception.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Don84 Great service / Comfortable room
Found this to be a good Express . We had a easy check in only a slight problem with needing a handicapped room that was not noted on reservation. Be the front desks changed it a timely manner. room was already for us. We it had met all our needs .It gave us a comfortable rest after a long trip & day.

The only real problem was check in. The clerk was on a personal call. She made no effort to get off the phone. The only reason I stayed is because I had a reservation and it was after six.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Parka Excellent staff and location
I've been a regular guest at the Holiday Inn Express south for months, and I wouldn't stay anywhere else in the city. The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are spacious and clean, the fitness room with a variety of machines. I can't say enough about their level of customer service.

The staff both at check in and at check out were great. The breakfast food was good and plentiful. I am surprised by the negative reviews, because my experience was really top notch.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Beth3501 Unpleasant breakfast made for a unhappy stay
When I checked in the girl at the front desk was extremely pleasant. She was all smiles and jokes. Made me feel like I was coming home. Kudos for her and her great attitude. The room were clean and comfy. It is located in a great location. Now for the bad part breakfast day one lady working in this area was not having a good day at all. Never said hi once and every time she was cleaning/ filling yogurt that was all she filled she did not look happy. Even my daughter mentioned something. Breakfast is until 10 but at 910 no eggs, no bagel, no rolls and I told my daughter she will fill just wait. Instead if filling she was packing and going. Apple juice was out at 930 nothing for my daughter. Eggs never got filled. Some people showed at 930 boy I feel sorry for them I hope u like pancakes from a machine cause that's what they got and the yogurt Never felt kicked out of my own hotel for breakfast. We went out for breakfast

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JMV1 Bad Plumbing
The Holiday Inn hotels are my first choice in all my travels. I do run into occacional minor issue here and there that are not worth mentioning. But this time I will take the time to explain why I gave a Fair and Average rating, when it should always be Good or Excellent. On my first morning on your Abilene location, I woke up and found out that the plumbing in the shower was NOT working at all. The sink water only had cold water running and NO hot water. I had to go to work without a shower that morning. When I informed the front desk, I was told that they'd have someone look into it. When I returned that evening, the plumbing was working. But, I don't believe the staff did enough to express their regret to have me go to work that morning without a shower. I wasn't looking for anything of tangible valure. A simple and heart felt appology would have gone a long way. By the way, there was a lack of Priority Club Member recognition from the front desk during check in. It felt like the front desk rep was more interested in getting back to the TV show than properly checking me in.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by teff Cold shower
My husband and I stayed at this hotel on Friday, Jan 24th. When we used the shower on the morning of the 25th, it was freezing cold water, no hot water at all. I reported the problem to the front desk and she said she would let a manager know. She asked me about discounting the room and I told her I would appreciate just adding points, which they did not. Very disappointing. I should at least get what I paid for and that is not a cold shower.

Stayed here for four nights. I was in a king bed room on the third floor. Quiet, clean rooms. Friendly staff. Good breakfast. Only issue was the the wireless internet connection. The higher the floor the slower the connectivity. They are actively looking to fix that issue with fiber optics. Overall, I would stay here again.

We had originally booked a room for 3 nights but because of a funeral and the weather, we decided to leave from the funeral and see if we could check in a day early . Rollo did a great job of getting us setup to check in early and we did not have move when our scheduled check came ready. We stay here a lot as we have family in the area and have always had a great experience.

Hotel was very quiet and comfortable. It is located within walking distance to at least two restaurant. The hotel provides fresh cookies in the evening and the standard Holiday Inn Express breakfast. They noted IHG rewards status. Overall very pleasant stay and a hotel I would recommend.

The smell when you go through the lobby was unbearable. The rooms bathroom had a leak in the ceiling and would drip on you while going to the bathroom. Could not figure how to key the card for the room

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by hmmm6 not updated like most Holiday Inn Express
The room was clean. It was a quiet floor but the facility is not updated like the other Holiday Inn Express hotels that we usually stay in. TV is not HD. I did not earn my rewards for some reason that I still don't understand.

This location met our expectations. The only issue we experienced is what sounded like children running continuously up and down the hall on the level above ours. After calling the desk and reporting this, the problem soon went away.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mason7 Great service
Good service, good price, good location. They were just awesome. I needed a place to stay for a couple of nights at a reasonable price. I found Abilene prices to be a little scary, generally due windmills and oil shale booming in west texas. It's located in a clean and relatively quiet part of Abilene surrounded by tons of great restaurants within walking distance.I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend this hotel.
