Enjoy a warm Texas welcome at our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Abilene. In no time you'll be communing with the ghosts of Abilene's Wild West past at Frontier Texas! museum and exploring the ruins of 19th-century Fort Griffin.
Guests of our hotels in Abilene can start an afternoon in town at the Grace House Museum. A grand red-brick building from the early 1900s now houses three different attractions, including a children's museum. Admire paintings and photos by Texan artists in the Art Museum and browse through a replica 1940s boot shop in the History Museum.

Vletas confectionery has been making pecan pralines and crunchy peanut brittle since 1912. Downtown restaurants serve tangy barbecue ribs and juicy cuts of Texas rib-eye. Finish a hearty cheeseburger or pork chop at Cypress Street Station & Abilene Brewing Company with a pint of their house-brewed ale. Catch a Hollywood classic movie at the Paramount Theatre, an original Art Deco 1930s movie house.

Very nice place to stay. Good breakfast. Convenient to freeway.[Less]
On the Go
Hotel was clean and quiet. Breakfast items were not replenished fast enough and selections seemed smaller than most HI Expresses.[Less]
Front desk staff was very attentive. They answered questions and offered advice on area restaurants.[Less]
We always enjoy our stay here--they are pleasant and clean properties and willing to make our stay the best they possibly can when we go. Rooms are clean, accommodations are great for our needs.[Less]
Most comfortable bed on a 4 week trip!
I have never stayed in a Candlewood Suites and I was very pleasantly surprised at how nice this one is. We only stayed for one night, but it would be a great place if you needed to stay for longer. I[More] think that it represents a great value for the price.[Less]
Our stay was brief (one night) but we had no problems. The price was good for a good room and facilities. We didn't have time to use the in-room facilities (kitchen, etc.) but they would certainly[More] have been helpful in a longer stay.[Less]
Clean, comfortable room and good service
I was very happy with the Holiday Inn Express. Everything we needed was provided in an efficient and friendly manner. We will definitely stay with them again when we visit Abilene.[Less]
Good place to sleep
By fat side down
Good location for business travel, lots of choices in the area for dining. Clean rooms, courtesy staff, good breakfast.[Less]

Families with children should be booked into rooms on the 1st floor as the kids usually run around and disturb the people below them if staying in upper floors![Less]
