Centrally located near Abilene’s main shopping district, the newly renovated Fairfield Inn offers a convenient and inexpensive stay for your family. Their spacious rooms can contain two queen beds, with a large area for a crib or rollaway. For even more space and comfort, connecting rooms are available. Every room comes with the usual mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. Other amenities of the hotel include a heated indoor pool and hot tub, a modern fitness center, and free Wi-Fi. The hotel’s free hot breakfast is a big one, featuring waffles, biscuits and gravy, bagels, fruit, pastries, eggs, and more.
The Fairfield Inn & Suites is surrounded by nearly every type of restaurant imaginable, most within easy walking distance. Down the street is the large Abilene Mall, with plenty of other dining options. Abilene’s downtown district is only 5 miles from your hotel. Fun for the family is a self-guided walking tour of the historic buildings, museums, parks, and shops of the downtown area. End your walk at the amazing Frontier Texas, which tells the history of Texas through interactive exhibits that are “hosted” by holographic characters. For some real history, make the short drive south to Buffalo Gap Historic Village, or north of town to Fort Phantom Hill, both of which will help you experience Old West Texas. With its great location, quiet rooms, and free breakfast, Fairfield Inn makes a great choice for your family vacation to Abilene.

Was an unscheduled stop. Can't do 12 hour drives anymore. Booked thru Hotels.com while on the road. When we arrived all the paper work was ready. Desk clerk Kelly was wery helpful with directions to a great eating place (Taylor Country Tap House). Room was clean and well appointed. Best room on the trip. no A/C noise. Only room complaint was black mold in the tub/shower caulk joint. Breakfast was the usual unappetizing motel menu. the breakfast hostess was friendly and efficient. Would stay here again if given the chance.
Everything was good and fairly clean. My only complaint was the restroom smelled liked old urine. Great location. The desk clerk was really nice and helpful as well. She was able to help with all of our needs.
