I’ve stayed at many other hotels only to be disappointed with the room cleanliness and or comfort of the room or hotel. Holiday inn express always exceeds my expectations. This hotel in particular[More] has a bar and restaurant. The rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. The only issue I encountered was the cleaning staff was loud during the day when cleaning neighboring rooms. Usually I would not mind due to being out of the room however this time i was going to nap in between dove hunting times 12-3. I understand that this is when they must clean so it really wasn’t an issue. Turn up the tv and let them work.[Less]
My first time stay was in Abilene for a wedding and I was totally blown away with my room, we got a suite, not what I was expecting.
The bed was so comfortable. The room was very clean.
I loved[More] that I could actually control the AC for each room.
The front desk had me checked in quick and the check out was just as smooth.
I will mostly definitely be a repeat customer.[Less]
