TripAdvisor Rating


This is a comfortable budget hotel in a quiet area of north Abilene. It may look a little plain on the outside, but the spacious rooms are clean and comfortable, with modern touches in all the right places. A family of four or five can make themselves at home in a two-queen room, with enough space for a crib or rollaway. Every room comes with a mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. The hotel’s inner courtyard is a pleasant oasis, where you’ll find trees, lawn space, and a large outdoor pool. Other amenities include free Wi-Fi, laundry service, and a good-sized continental breakfast that includes waffles, eggs, pastries, fruit, cereal, and more.

The Whitten Inn is located next to Interstate 20 not far from Abilene Christian University. You can walk across the parking lot to several fast food and casual restaurants next to the hotel. Drive the 5 miles into downtown Abilene for a wide range of locally-owned eateries, including a few legendary BBQ places. The downtown area is also where you’ll want to check out exciting museums like Frontier Texas, Grace Museum, and the National Center for Children’s Illustrated Literature. Kids will get a thrill out of all that Texas history, but it won’t be complete until you drive 15 miles south of town to Buffalo Gap Historic Village, a collection of authentic buildings from the pioneer days. Navigating the area from your hotel is easy with the interstate nearby. Other than its convenient location, your family will appreciate the low rates and friendly service of the Whitten Inn during your family trip to Abilene.

Nice and Clean!

by Happyplacehere

Don't let the fact that this is a 2 star hotel stop you from booking. This place has been nicely remodeled and is SUPER CLEAN. We would definitely stay here again as it is MUCH nicer and cleaner than many 3 star hotels we have stayed in.

Great value for the money.

This place is very clean, the staff is friendly, and the price was very reasonable. The rooms seem to have been recently updated and we were pleased the moment we opened the door. My only complaint was the noisy refrigerator which I immediately unplugged, so it was no big deal. ????
