Good for a quick Abilene stay
I come for business. I don’t need much. Good bed. Clean room. Decent breakfast friendly staff. Stayed during construction. No fitness center, that was a let down. All in all good enough for me.[Less]
Nice and Comfortable
The building was under renovations but shows whatever was needed is being done. The exterior has a nice appearance to appreciate. The interior lobby is simple and small without a real waiting area. [More] It seemed there was only one elevator which can be an issue during busy times. The breakfast was hot, enjoyable, and plenty to eat. I will use it again.[Less]
Pool, exercise, other amenities not available due to first-floor renovation. IHG should put a notice on the website when a hotel is going through reno.[Less]
We were in town for a High School football playoff game. The bartender, Ashley, was the absolute best part of our stay. When we got back to the hotel after losing the football game she was a bright[More] and wonderful greeting. She was incredible.[Less]
Very clean and extraordinary good service
Thanks for having new pillows and clean towels, in other places the towels and pillows stink to the point I need to call front desk to ask for others.[Less]
Abilene Holiday Inn
Excellent location. Excellent staff. Excellent Bar. Excellent parking. Excellent food.
I have stayed at this location several times. I really enjoy the hotel and staff. Very nice people that greet[More] you with a smile all the time. Some places are busy and don't look up. Not this place. Someone is greeting you every time you walk in the front door.[Less]
