We spent a few days exploring Glen Rose and the surrounding area. Super convenient (10-15 mins) to Dinosaur Valley State Park, Dinosaur World, Fossil Rim Wildlife Center, and still close to Granbury.

We found the Best Western to be great for families. For this type of hotel, we were happy with our accommodations (2-queen suites) and had plenty of space to stretch out. Having connecting rooms was very helpful as well when traveling with children and grandparents. The pool was a little chillier than expected, but the kids were still able to enjoy it. The spa was super hot. Perhaps worth cooling a few degrees during the day for the little ones (and then increasing the heat at night when adults are more prone to use). The breakfast was on par with what one would expect for this type of hotel. It was "good enough" and all of the children were happy.

It would be great if they had softer and flatter pillows as an option. The beds all had tall, firm pillows, which made sleeping a little less comfortable than we're used to. Beds were OK, enough support, but definitely not as nice as home, which is fine. It was just for a couple of nights.

Overall, we were happy with the value that BW provided and would recommend it to other families wanting to check out local sites.

We arrived a little early and they allowed us to check in. Check-in was quick and the clerk was friendly.

We stayed in room 312 with a king bed. The layout of the room is excellent. The bathroom is all in one, meaning the sink is inside the bathroom. Plenty of counter space. The showerhead is excellent and the water pressure is good. The tub drains very slowly. There is an easy chair with an ottoman, desk and chair, and plenty of outlets for charging devices, etc. The bonus in this room is there is a ceiling fan with an attached light kit and separate switches for each of them. The bed was comfortable. I like the refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker in its own little nook in the corner of the room. We stay in hotel rooms extensively during our road trips and typically the microwave, refrigerator area is usually in front of the bed. It is nice for it to be tucked away in a corner that way you’re not in each others way.

I understand and appreciate that there are hotels still observing some sort of Covid policies and procedures. The breakfast offerings here are much to be desired for me personally. The only warm food offered was sausage, biscuits, and sausage gravy. Potatoes were on the menu but we didn’t ask about those. It would’ve been nice to have scrambled eggs. They were out of milk therefore no cereal unless you eat it dry. The only cereal available was Cocoa Puffs. The front desk said they were waiting on their delivery. They have yogurt that you get at the front desk. They also have muffins and Nutri-Grain bars as well as apples available. I ate half a biscuit and it was utterly disgusting. It tasted as though it had been cooked yesterday and then left out all day. It was dry and even after trying to warm it up in the microwave still didn’t make any difference.

The entrance to the hotel has a covered carport as well as automatic doors. Carts are available for luggage. The swimming pool is outside and has nice seating area and also a little kiddie pool. There are rocking chairs around the perimeter of the building as the hotel has a covered porch area around three sides of the building

If we were to stay in Glen Rose again we would stay at this hotel although I’m hoping that the future offerings for breakfast would be a lot better.

This by all means was a last mintue stay due to my travel trailer having a major water leak. After searching online at about 4-5 hotels within the area the Best Western seemed liked the best at of all the choices. after going through a third party for the best rate which was about $102.00 a night my wife and i decided to stay for 2 nights. Upon arrival the staff was very nice and check in was super fast. I booked two queen beds but the i can tell you this by all means it not queen beds but fulls. The hotel it self it a bit older and the rooms are as well. The room had the two "Queen" beds a full sized shower and a microsave with mini frig as well as nice flat screen tv with cable. The beds and beeding are older and are not comfrontable. Above the shower I could see what looks like mold starting. The rooms themself all need a remodel. The pool was very nice and was a good place to cool off during the hot days. Due to the current Covid19 situatuion if your staying more than one night you don't get house keeping services and they are only giving like wrapped muffins and fruit for breakfast not your standard brakefast. The location was very safe and quite. Also to add my very last night there at around 12 am after everyone in my party was in bed and mostly asleep staff called the room to say someone below was saying we were stomping but did not come up to the room to investigate first this caused everyone in my room to wake up including my young baby. Given the other choices within the area i would choice another location.

Very nice hotel that is clean and well cared for. The staff is amazing! Big rooms with comfortable beds. We even got to have our French bulldog stay with us in the 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom suite for $25 (way more reasonable than most hotels).

We had about 18 people that met at this hotel for a reunion. The rooms were nothing fancy but well taken care of and very clean. The staff is what makes this place very special. The assistant manager worked with me months in advance and made sure everything was perfect when we arrived. The meeting room was spacious enough to accommodate us with an outdoor to the porch that had rocking chairs to relax. The assistant manager and staff was readily available for the entire stay.

We spent one night here to indulge my husband who doesn't like camping. We really just looked at it as a place to crash between our two days of hiking. Hotel was very pleasant. We stayed in one of the King Suites.
The Good: The lighting was wonderful. Most hotel rooms are so dim. This one had a fan with a four light light kit in the sitting area, plus several lamps placed about. Everything appeared clean. The front desk staff was very nice. We were able to get dinner from Los Primos delivered to the hotel.
The Minor Problems: Bed could have been more comfortable, mattress felt old. The breakfast bar had been taken away, replaced with "grab and go" breakfasts of mini muffins and an apple. I feel like the price should reflect this. The bathroom could use some updating.
Overall, a good experience. Nothing super fancy, but what we needed in a good location.

Great location- close to the state park and restaurants. One of the few hotels in the area with an outdoor pool. The grounds were well kept but the pool was a little dirty. The hotel is a little older but was very clean. The best part of this hotel is by far the staff. Very kind, friendly and attentive. Be aware the walls are very thin and you can hear everything in the hall, outside and next door. If you’re a light sleeper would recommend ear plugs. Pillows are very fluffy so if you prefer a flatter pillow, bring your own as they do not have any other available at this time. Not currently able to clean the rooms daily and cannot offer breakfast due to Pandemic.
That being said, they constantly asked if we needed anything and if we were enjoying our stay.

Very clean and comfortable, great service, and simple check in and out process. I took my son to check out Fossil Rim Wildlife Center and Dinosaur World. The woman at the front desk was incredibly kind and helpful. She was also very informative offering suggestions on places to visit and eat while in town.

The lobby is nice, the pool is nice, but the room was old and muggy, the shower didn’t drain, the mattress on the sofa bed was stained and there were no sheets or blankets for it. The breakfast was horrible, if you’re looking at hotels with breakfast included, go somewhere else. We wound up having to go out to eat for breakfast.
