“Avid traveler, The best I've had in years.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

I travel a lot and I have to say these people have it together. I stayed there one night and I am fully rested and completely satisfied with my experience. Holiday inn has exceeded my expectations in defining great service and comfortable accommodations. I will be back in the near future. If you have not stopped in on this hotel I highly recommend it. A special thank you to a Mr. Garcia and a Ms. Lemay for all of their efforts!

We stayed at this hotel for our weekend visit to Dinosaur Valley and Fossil Rim Animal Park. The hotel was inviting and clean, nice amenities, and friendly staff . We had requested a roll away and it was already in the room when we arrived. We were given a map of the area and snacks upon arrival as well. The room was neat and clean with fantastically comfy bedding. The pool was the perfect temperature and even though it was a weekend, we had it to ourselves Friday evening and Saturday afternoon. It even had a trunk full of pool toys for the kids to play with! Just outside the pool area, there was also a place to toss around a game of horseshoes! There was a baseball team and a block of wedding guests there I believe and even though there were many outside at the pool and in the patio area until late in the evening on Saturday, we did not hear them and were able to sleep peacefully. Breakfast was good and helpful for our busy morning schedule. Something for each of us and even yogurt, fruit and whole grain cereal for those who are health conscious. Great sunset view from our room as well! Location is awesome with a good convenience store next door and awesome BBQ down the road at Hammond's. We would definitely recommend to friends and family staying in the area. They have earned their award winning hotel status!

Just stayed at this property on Sunday night May 26 th.. Walked in without reservation .. Stayed in room 212 .. A king bed with sofa sleeper. Mine phone and grandsons phone always searching for service..thus could not let someone know we arrived safely nor could we send or receive texts Notified front desk...They apologized but did not offer to move us. Since this was annoying issue.. I can't give this hotel any rating but UNSATISFACTORY .. They should no they have an issue and let guests know at check-in..

Room Tip: Be sure your room is not a dead zone for cell service.. Take you cell to room before you take to roo...

Thank you for your review. We're sorry your inadequate cell phone coverage, an issue for which we have no control, affected your entire stay and gave you such a negative opinion about every aspect of our hotel. We do value your feedback; thank you again.

My mother (age 82) and I stayed at the Holiday Inn on Memorial Day weekend. We had a lovely experience. Skylar greeted us as we walked in. She was very friendly and took the time to review the Glen Rose Activity map with us. Thank you very much for making this stay a wonderful memory for my Mother and me. We appreciated your kind staff and would definitely recommend your hotel to friends and family.

The room was clean, well arranged and not overcrowded which allowed room for all of our stuff! All the staff were helpful and the hotel has a friendly relaxed atmosphere. The breakfast room has tables and chairs, board games, dominoes and a tv which was nice on a rainy day where several families were playing games. The location is great and close to all the Glen Rose attractions and parks.

Great stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Glen Rose! The rooms were updated, clean and nice, the front hotel staff was pleasant and always ready and willing to answer questions. We would absolutely stay here again when we head to the Glen Rose area. Loved hiking Dinosaur Park!

In one word - Skyler! This was our first visit to this property and Glen Rose. When we first walked in we received one of the most genuine and warm welcomes ever by Skyler! She inquired if this was our first visit to Glen Rose and the occassion of our visit. We responded that it was our first visit and that it was our anniversary weekend. Responding to our inquiries she gave honest and helpful advice as to the best places to eat and visit. After returning that evening from one of her recommened restaurants we found a complimentary bottle of bubbly, a candy assortment and a handmade "Happy Anniversary" note in our room! Needless to say, we were blown away! The hotel was conveniently located and impecably decorated with a great breakfast assortment but most importantly, absolutely, one of the best staffs we've EVER experienced. We will definitely be back - Glen Rose is blessed to have such a tremendous asset in their community!
