Hotel is close to everything in Glen Rose especially "The Promise" production. Love the interior. Has a rustic interior. Staff is friendly and helpful. Nice pool. Has a barbecue area nearby and the kids pool is covered. Nice big rooms with comfortable beds.

The room was extremely clean , staff was friendly and helpful . The only issue we had was ..there was no meat offered with breakfast , nor did we see any fruit on the buffet . Other than that it was a very nice stay !! I would definitely recommend this hotel .

There are interesting things to see and do. Local gym and restaurants to walk to. River walk is very relaxing. They have a wonderful animal park near the hotel and the surrounding make you feel that you are in a forest.

Comfy bed, friendly staff. Cons: While free breakfast is good, I'm not a fan of cereal, waffles, and bread options. It would have been great to see some yogurt, real eggs, whole wheat grains. Also, both cardio machines (treadmill and bike) were non-working. Boo. :(

Staff was friendly but the dead cockroach in the shower upon entering my room was a complete turnoff. Spent the rest of my stay wandering if more were in the room. Breakfast was not up to par with other hotels I've stayed at. No meat, just powdered eggs and waffles and cereal.

This Hotel was clean, had great service, and friendly staff. I would suggest this hotel, it is a great Location, very easy to get to different places in Glen Rose Texas. The Pool was nice, and we really enjoyed the Hot Tub. The complete outside area where the pool was located was very nice, and the decor was nice.

The hotel is western themed and looks a lot better than your standard cookie cutter hotels. The staff was very friendly. They had the best scrambled eggs that I ever had in a hotel breakfast. I stayed there on a business but will return with family.

Overall ok, pleasant staff found beds to be old style (not pillow top) which we are used to at other Best Westerns, breakfast was ok (no breakfast meat served) and towels and wash clothes very course. Other than that, no problems, friendly staff and clean rooms.

The pictures of the hotel do not reflect this hotel at all. The pictures make the place look nice. It isn't. I know this hotel probably gets a lot of traffic but it is run down, shabby towels, not clean. The free breakfast is something you want to forgo. It is terrible. TERRIBLE. I had issues checking in but it... More
