“Great place to stay in Glen Rose”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

We were riding in the Texas Time Trial road race & our club suggested staying at this hotel. I read the reviews on TA & looked forward to our stay. We we greeted at check in by a very nice young lady. She recognized that we were in for the bike race & told us about the free breakfast. Since our race started at 6 am, we said we wouldn't be around. She mentioned their breakfast to go option & handed us a form to fill out with our choices. She said the would be bagged up & waiting at the front desk at whatever time we wanted. So at 5am the next morning just as promised our to go breakfast was there. Now that is service! We had a short but good night sleep as well. We will return next year & stay at this hotel.

THE entire staff went way abovethe expected level of service, Steve Garcia went 18 miles and back to fina a heat wrap for my arthritic hands. Kris started breakfast an hour early on Saturday and Sunday so our large group of EWGA golfers had breakfast before our tournament. Steve not only recommended a great place to eat but called and made reservations for our entire group of 8. Skyler called and checked in on me when I was in my room with my hands in a bag of ice due to excessive swelling and pain. And the next day when she came to work she called to see how I was doing.Her first question was "How are you doing? Is there anything I can do to help you?" Carla double checked to make sure the bill was split correctly between the 2 of us. Sandra made sure we had enough towels, water, coffee and blankets. wish every hotel cared enough about their guests to treat them with the warmth and sincere interest and focus on qualtiy service this group treated us with. This should be the ultimate flagship of customer servce for all hotel not just Holiday Inn.

Great service and the staff is awesome, especially Steve. The rooms are clean and the manager, Steve opened up the breakfast bar early for the golf gals staying at the hotel. Will stay here again if I'm back this wolfy.

The girl at the front desk was awesome at check in. Very friendly! She even had cookies for us and gave our little one a toy dinosaur. Room was nice, clean and comfy. Shower and bath area seemed older, but both clean. Vanity was updated in a newer style. No complaints! Nice pool with lots of toys to use. Good selection at breakfast with biscuits, gravy, sausage, omeletes, yogurt and much more. The lady at check out gave us another free dinosaur. Great place with friendly folks! Good location for visiting Dinosaur State Park, Dinosaur World and Fossil Rim Wildlife Center. Glen Rose is a realy cute little town. Check out Storybook Cafe for lunch.

Thank you so much for your review! Being the "Dinosaur Captital of Texas", we really enjoy seeing the children's faces light up when we pass out the prehistoric toys. We're very glad your family enjoyed staying with us--and the cookies! WE LIKE THE COOKIES, TOO; but don't tell anyone! Hurry back!!!!!

This place was amazing, from a very spacious room, to the best front desk help ever experienced. This was another choice made simple by the folks here on Tripadvisor and we are glad we listened. Three kids under the age of 10 and all want to return to this hotel, that by itself is amazing.

I think the employees name was Kelly, but she gave good recommendations and gave the kids some toy dinosaurs while we waited for pizza delivery. The room was quiet and the pool was in the shade.. a bonus in summer Texas heat.

Breakfast was cheese omelets, biscuits and gravy, sausage and all the regular fruit and cereals.

If we venture near Glen Rose again, we will detour to have another great stay.

I stayed here with my husband and our toddler on a trip to Fossil Rim. The hotel is nicely decorated. Breakfast is typical free breakfast. Some items are tastier than others. We stayed in a king suite. The room was huge and the bathroom was spacious. There is one TV and it's across from the bed so we wouldn't have been able to watch TV while our son was sleeping. My only complaint about the hotel is that our room had an odor when we arrived and it didn't subside. Also the stopper in the tub didn't work. Despite that I'd stay here again. There are a limited number of restaurants nearby on 67 but it looked like there were a few more in town.
