Checked in after 8.00 pm, we were passing through, stopped at the first motel we saw. Price was okay, at $57.00 per room, but you get what you pay for. We dropped our bags and headed out for dinner. Returning to rooms very tired, I know I should have checked the room first before jumping into bed, as I might...

To start off the staff was extremely friendly & went above and beyond to make my stay here comfortable. The lovely lady at the front desk gave me several recommendations as to different sites to see here in town. Overall a very quite stay. They serve waffles shaped like Texas for breakfast which was neat. The rooms were okay. They...

We stayed at the Emerald Inn Expo in Abilene on Sunday the 26th March 2017, we were placed in a very nice room just past the outdoor swimming pool. For the price, the room was really good and we received a very nice welcome from the receptionist upon arrival. Leaving the following morning was different matter, the lady should really...

Checked into this establishment after experiencing a horrible time at an other motel in Abilene. We were greeted by friendly staff that went "out of their way" to ensure our stay was as pleasant as possible.

The sheets were so thin you could see through them. Half of the lamps didn't work. Carpet hasn't been cleaned in a while and still sneezing. Tub was dirty. On a plus the heater worked extremely well. Don't think we'll be back.

Easy to find, lots of parking. At first we had no wifi but were moved to a new room right away. While the room cooled off we went to Walmart for a few things. Would of liked a dip in the pool, but the water was bright green. Our room is spacious and the bed is comfy.

We needed a clean comfortable place to stay for one night as we traveled through West Texas. Found the Emerald Inn to be just as described. It is an older hotel, but the room was very clean and large (one queen bed with recliner, desk and small table). We arrived after 8 p.m. so didn’t use the pool but noticed...

Our annual Family Reunion happens at the Emerald Inn Expo every year and every year the staff treats us like royalty! They keep the meeting room clean and stocked with tea, coffee, ice and water. They also get our hotel rooms ready and turn on the air conditioning to a very comfortable level so the rooms are cool before we...

The front desk staff were outstanding. Upon check in we found the a/c wasn't working...Leslie (?I think was her name? ) quickly got us into another room. The hotel was mostly clean though old, very quiet and comfortable! If or when we come this way again we would stay there again!
