Wife and I stayed here recently and had a great time. Our room was very clean and the jacuzzi tub was awesome! Chris at the front desk was very helpful and assisted us with any problems we had. We highly recommend

This appears to be one of the newer hotels in Glen Rose, and has stepped up to the plate with service and amenities. We stayed at the hotel because we found a package deal here on TA where we got two tickets to the Fossil Rim Wildlife Center with a night at the HIE for $119. We checked in just after 3:00 and went to the pool. It's fairly small, but adequate for the hotel. By sunset there were several other kids in the pool for our 3 and 5 year olds to play with. There were little floaty toys and noodles provided for guests - I thought that was cool. Our room had a fridge and microwave, which was nice as we did have leftovers from dinner we were able to keep for a late night snack.
At breakfast, is was a pretty standard "hot" fare. Warm biscuits and gravy, as well as sausage and a cheese omelette that we didn't try. Lots of cereals and fresh fruit. Good spread. Eventually a guy who identified himself as the GM asked if he could give our kids a toy - a little toy dinosaur. That was nice. Entire staff was all smiles and very accommodating. Great stay and considering our deal with the tickets to the Wildlife Park ended up being a heck of a deal.
Also - within a walk away from a little Exxon station with a great fried pie place inside.

We were very pleased with this hotel. The staff was wonderful! Checked on our group frequently to see if we needed anything. The rooms were spacious and well maintained, as was the rest of the hotel. The pool was nice, and there was a fitness center although I did not use it. The only complaint for me was a sluggish elevator, but since there are only 3 floors, the stairs were an option if you were in a hurry. Breakfast was a standard continental breakfast which was part of our room cost.
The meeting room was large enough to easily accommodate our group. I would not hesitate to recommend this establishment if you happen to be going to Glen Rose.

Holiday Inn Express in Glen Rose, TX is the best Hotel that I have stayed at in a long time and I travel all round the Southern States. Great Facilities, Great Staff, Great Rooms, and Great Breakfast. Tammy at the front desk made checking out a breeze the morning that I left. If your ever in Glen Rose, TX make sure you stay at the Holiday Inn Express.

Room Tip: I have stayed there 10 plus times and I havent ever had a bad room. They all are good!

I never expected to stay in a hotel this nice in Glen Rose. The staff was exceptionally attentive and the fixtures of the hotel were high end. From the moment we stepped in to the time we left we felt we were at a much higher end hotel (Omni is where we normally stay if possible). The General Manager even made it a point to visit at breakfast and personally make sure that each guest was having their needs met. I was tremendously impressed and highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Get a queen suite. Our family had plenty of room and the kids really liked the room.

Stayed here for a weekend get away and was very pleased. The hotel was decorated with nice decor. The breakfast, which was free, was very nice and tasted good. The location of the hotel is close to Fossil Rim and the Dinosaur State Park. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because the beds were to firm for my taste. My hips and shoulders hurt in the morning. But other than that it was a very nice place to stay and we would stay here again.

Our overnight stay was just for a 2 day short break, with one night at this hotel. The check in staff couldn't have been nicer and were absolutely FABULOUS to our big puppy. Besides a great Priority Club check in bag, they were equipped with tasty dog bones and he couldn't have been happier.

The hotel was very nice and clean and easy to find. It's not on an Interstate Highway, but for anyone staying around Glen Rose, Granbury, Fossil Rim, Dinosaur State Park, etc. it is a MUST for consideration. I feel fortunate that there is a hotel like this one in the area. A very rare GEM. I wish all HI Express Hotels were like this one.

We did have a small issue when checking out that was caused by the main ICH reservations center. The gentleman on duty was extremely helpful in straightening out the situation and by the time we got home an email of our corrected statement was waiting! YEA for the prompt attention.

Great parking, the room was VERY NICE and breakfast was great!

As a fun side-note.... I must thank the hotel for their training of our eight month old puppy. While I was working with the front desk employee to correct our bill, the puppy figured out that he could open the automatic front door by just moving into its range! Every time I would pull the leash and bring him back to me, he would await his moment and make his move to get the door to open again. I am sure he is still disappointed it doesn't work this way at home!

Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Our room was perfect and I couldn't see any hotel issues for any of the rooms. North side room...
