This was a great pick for a hotel in Glen Rose. It's on the main road, close to a lot of attractions. There is a nice outdoor pool area, with a hot tub (nonoperational when we were there), a shaded kids pool (water pretty cold and also dirty), and a larger adult pool in the sun. Plenty of seating around, and even some kids toys available to borrow and use. There were signs in the room saying that towels were available at the pool, but they were not, so we used our room towels. The lobby is small but sufficient. Breakfast is still closed, so they had stacks of apples, granola bars, and packaged muffins in the morning. Sufficient, but unimpressive. Self-service coffee was available all day near the breakfast room. The room (we had a king room) was spacious - plenty of floor space around the king bed, comfortable AC, nice TV, and nice desk facilities. There is a sitting room with a nice sofa that turns into a pullout queen and a comfortable chair. The bathroom is perfectly sufficient, but really needs an air vent to alleviate shower humidity. We were in room 104 and it took 2-3 minutes of running to get hot water. The whole bathroom was a bit dingy and old (yellowed paint and whatnot) but clean. The bed was firm but acceptable. Pillows were somewhat flat and lumpy but acceptable for a midrange hotel. The room also has a cold mini-fridge with small freezer inset as well as a microwave and a very basic coffeemaker. Slight shortage of electrical/USB outlets. In-room WiFi was fine and not slow, but it tended to disconnect frequently, requiring constant re-logging in. On continuous-use devices, like streaming video, it didn't do it, so it may be a timeout issue. Staff that we interacted with were perfectly considerate and attentive. Parking is ample, though a bit smelly - a large livestock arena is right next to the hotel and there was a constant stream of horse trailers in and out while we were there.

Needed to get a way for a mini vacation over the 4th holiday. Stayed a 2 bedroom queen suite. Room was comfortable and clean. Pool was clean with plenty of towels even at night. Staff is always friendly at this hotel and will go out of their way to make your stay pleasant!

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.

Rather than do a one-day trip to Fossil Rim from Dallas (2 hrs. each way), we decided to break up the drive with an overnight stay in Glen Rose. I booked the room on the BW site and was happy to find a reasonably priced suite with 2 queen beds and a sofa bed that could accommodate two adults and 3 kids, ages 6, 8 and 10. The front desk staff were courteous and check-in fast. The overall room size was comfortable, but the bed area somewhat cramped. One bed was pushed up against the wall requiring you to climb in from the foot of bed and not the side. This bed was also right on top of the room air conditioner. The beds were small ‘queens’ (more like a double) and I had to call for linens for the sofa bed (however they were promptly delivered). For our short stay, the room served the purpose. Due to COVID-19, breakfast consisted of take-away muffins, apples, and granola bars. There was coffee available in the lobby, which by the way has a charming rustic feel complete with an antler chandelier. We didn’t have a chance to use the pool, but heard kids playing.
