Carpet was dirty, stains all over the room, blow drier was dirty, they had taped the carpet down with duct tape at the bathroom door and our darkening curtain had rips on it letting light in. The bed was comfy, 3 rd floor was quiet so that was good.

I understand that this property has recently been bought out. There was no use of facilities, pool, or workout room. There were loose tiles on the floor in the bathroom and some molding missing. I hope the new owners putting some money into it and make it the place it could be. It’s seem to have good layout and format. The breakfast was very good in the area

This hotel made me feel welcome

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, clean, close to shopping
This is a really great place to stay! The rooms were really nice and comfortable. This is a smoke free and pet free facility which makes it clean. The only thing dissapointing was the breakfast.

Slightly above Average, Not Great

Made reservation based on Travel Website rating. They had Wingate listed as top rated hotel in Abilene. Hotel was very clean and well appointed, interior was furnished similar to a newer Hampton Inns and Suites. Was traveling on business and had booked two rooms that were pre-paid for three nights. Upon check-in the front desk could only find one of our reservations. I provided the confirmation numbers and they stated they sometimes had problems with getting reservations from Travel Website through their central reservations office. They had to book the 2nd room manually and assured that everything else was OK and I would not be charged. The next afternoon the front desk called my co-worker's room and asked if he was staying a 2nd night. He explained that he was booked for three days and the room had been pre-paid. The front desk apologized and acknowledged the error. After leaving the room that afternoon, my co-worker returned later that evening and his key had been de-activated. He had to get it re-activated and again there was confusion regarding the length of stay and the fact we had pre-paid for the room. The staff was friendly, never rude but it was inconvenient to deal with the lost booking. While the rooms were clean and very new, you can easily hear the activity and muffled conversations in the adjoining rooms. Also, my room was on the 2nd floor and I could hear every footstep of the person in the room above me. The breakfast is OK, they serve instant scrambled eggs which have little to no flavor. We opted to eat there during our first morning and decided afterwards to eat at a restaurant. Probably will try another hotel on my next visit to Abilene.

Won't stay here again.

There were only 3 cars in the parking lot. When checking in we asked if we could have a room with 2 double beds instead of 1 king and were told that the "system" wouldn't let them make any changes. Once in our room we asked for an additional blanket and were told that all of the blankets were currently on beds in rooms and even though only 4 rooms were occupied, they couldn't go in and get us the requested blanket. Never again.
