The hotel has reasonably priced rooms and very nice. Not outdated at all. I felt like I was in a bedroom and not a motel room. Our room overlooked the pool with one very large window on one side of the room and another window on the other side of the room. The room was very clean and it is... More

We're glad you enjoyed the end room with the extra windows & had a good experience at our Inn. I know the pool can be noisy with the kids enjoying it, but we're elated to see them having a good time. We do close the pool by 10 pm so hopefully we'll not disturb anyone's sleep. Thank you for your... More

Our stay was great but not perfect. The pillows could have had a little more stuffing. No elevator but is an older hotel. Wifi was excellent even for streaming. Staff was friendly. Will be back for $50 a night. Can see lake in areas. Ac was cold fridge would freeze and all other amenities worked.

Well kept grounds and nicely landscaped. Nice pool area. Owner a little stand offish, but was late. Rooms are outdated, but very clean. My main complaint is the 40+ year old box spring mattresses (well, maybe not that old). Woke all night long moaning and sharp pains in back. Restless night on a terrible mattress and flat pillows.

The lobby area was welcoming. the rooms are ok, the bathrooms needs some work and additional cleaning. We stayed for 2 nights and the town is great. The room was quiet and air conditioner worked very well. Microwave and mini fridge included. Staff was friendly.

I have stayed here many times and the constant overall excellence is amazing. The Staff is always ready to help. The rooms are very nice and the cost is remarkably low for what you get. Great job Plantation Inn. I always recommend this hotel. -

We're glad you enjoyed the affordable accommodations & enjoyed the breakfast. We've been serving the locally made Kennedy Sausage for several years & I think they have a great flavor- very similar to the sausage my folks made from the hogs we raised when I grew upat Alvarado, Texas. Come again. Dutch Wilkinson More

Very nice hotel, $56 drive out for king bed, microwave, fridge facilities , continental breakfast with sausage biscuits and gravy, nicely maintained facilities and reliable Internet. I would highly recommend this establishment.

My family decided at the last minute to drive closer to where my son was competing in the Spartan Race last Sunday. We stayed at Plantation In and were very delighted. The beds weren't the best but the staff was more than awesome. At this time of year people seem to be afraid to share anything Christian. When you walk... More

A friend travels and stays here regularly and at his recommendation I made reservations. My spouse and I stayed 2 nights. The decor is dated and no flat screen as described online.

Most of our business comes from repeat customers & referrals. We'll try hard to live up to expectations. I'd thought we had flat screen TV's in all the rooms but had forgotten that we've not replaced the larger TV's in the suites. We'll plan to do so. We're glad you found your room clean & comfortable.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located just 35 miles southwest of Fort Worth and an hour from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, Granbury presents the perfect opportunity to step back in time.Transportation available to and from Granbury Municipal Airport. Brenda and I purchased Plantation Inn in 1993, in the part of Texas where we grew up. We have been in the motel / hotel industry for 34 years and still love it! We have found three essentials for repeat customers: Clean Rooms, Friendly Faces, and Affordable Rates. And we listen to our guests — their suggestions, compliments, and complaints. We know if it’s not fun for our guests, it won’t be fun for us.We sincerely invite you to come and stay with us. You will be treated like a favorite relative.Dutch and Brenda ... more   less
