Inn on the River, in Glen Rose, Texas is truly the natural choice for getaways and special events. It's a place where the steady stream of interruptions and the grating sounds of city traffic is replaced by a gently flowing river, a breeze blowing the leaves of the trees, and singing birds. Away from your fast-paced life, you will find yourself wonderfully relaxed with a new perspective on your life, and perhaps a new appreciation for the people around you. This Texas Registered Historic Landmark Inn is truly a wonderful get-a-way for friends, families, or couples. Did you know that Houston & San Antonio are just 4 hours drive away while Austin is 2 1/2 and DFW is just an hour? Come to your closest far away place today. Of course, Ryman, the Inn's mascot is also ready to greet you at our Glen Rose Texas, Hotel.

The Inn on The River was so peaceful and beautiful. They waited on us, like we were their family. The room was perfect, along with the delicious breakfast. They have a place to eat on site. The food was wonderful! We enjoyed sitting on the banks of the Paluxy River!!!

Comfortable, somewhat dated accommodations right on the Paluxy River and two steps from the town square. Extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating owner. No complaints. Lovely experience. Our pup enjoyed romping with the two sweet ones on property.

We've stayed here several times amid different seasons of the year and are always impressed with the cleanliness each room & bath provide. The beds are very comfortable as well. The Inn also provides a wonderful staff who are eager to assist from the time we arrive until the day we depart. Very nice!

The Inn On The River is a beautiful historic hotel and easily has the best location in Glen Rose. The setting on the Paluxy River is perfect and you are downtown so it is easy to walk everywhere for dining, shopping, and everything else. We even watched the Glen Rose Christmas parade from the front porch of the hotel. While the hotel and grounds are beautiful, it is Pam and her amazing staff that make this the best place to stay in Glen Rose. The owner, Pam, wears several hats and is involved in every aspect of running the hotel. She took our reservation and we also learned she is the chef at the hotel restaurant, Snyder's Tavern, and also made us breakfast the next morning. (This is a true bed and breakfast and not the cheesy breakfast buffet you get at most hotels with neon eggs and paper thin bacon.) Our dinner at the Tavern and breakfast the next day were both delicious. Thanks for everything Pam! We will be back!

Inn On The River is a picturesque, charming, and historic B & B on the Puluxy River in Glen Rose Texas. We were greeted with welcoming innkeeper and staff who saw to our every need. I have travelled the world but this bed and breakfast rises above all! The small city of Glen Rose has it's own charm with local restaurants, music with friendly people, a place to walk where dinosaurs walked! There is a tavern behind the house sitting on the river to hang out with family and friends. The Inn is truly a special get away for anyone and is about 1 hour from Ft. Worth. It is on the Texas Historic Registry. Thank you Pamela and your caring staff for the marvelous experience. Inn On The River should be on everyone's bucket list!

Very nice place to get away for the weekend. The staff (including the dogs :-) ) were very friendly and helpful. It was kind of like visiting family. It seemed that some people were repeat customers, so we weren't the only ones that felt that way.

My friend and I stayed in a 2 bedroom suite on the second floor. It was very clean, the beds were comfortable and great heat and air conditioning. My only suggestions would be to have an additional trash can besides the one in the bathroom, as it can fill up quickly without daily housekeeping service. Also we could not find a hair dryer in the room. The weekend we were there it had been raining and it had gotten very cold, so an additional blanket on the bed also would have been nice. Because it was so cold we were not able to sit outside on this beautiful property and enjoy the river. (And it was full after 8 inches of rain all week!) Breakfasts were served in a lovely dining room downstairs with a nice view of the property. I also recommend Snyder's tavern on the property, as they have a delicious fish and chips. My friend and I had planned on going to Dinosaur Valley State Park, but they were closed due to all the rain. We hope to get back down to the area and do that sometime!

It’s a pretty spot, walked in & was met by two dogs, pro tip: bring some Milkbone. Just a cool old place and yes the wooden floors creak. Liked the Tavern, enjoyed the breakfast & the bed was comfortable. First time in a long time used a real key & liked that there was no TV. Come on rain! The River needs you.

Thanks to Miss Pamela, Scott and staff. Also, pets and head scratches to Ursa and Riker the overseers of comings and goings and two sweet dogs. My partner and I needed a break from stress and routine and The Inn on the River was just what we needed. We had the suite, and it was quite comfortable. No TV or other distractions. We really had no agenda so when it rained all of the 2nd day we just sat on the covered patio of the Tavern and talked. Breakfast was made to order, and Miss Pamela is quite skilled. Dinosaur Valley state park and Fossil Rim wildlife center are both close. Toni and I both loved our time there. I'm sure that we will return.
