“Attention: Jerry Sheaks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

Just wanted to write you about G.M. Steven M. Garcia, this is a true symbol of someone that goes beyond the call of duty. I watched this man unknowst to him, vacuum floors in hallways, pool cleaning and equipment duties in a suit no less in over 100 degrees outside, keep a keen eye on his staff and actually give a damn about this faciltiy and courtesy to the guests. Being a business man and appreciating his concerns I couldn't help but pull him aside and tell him the things over our 3 day stay that I noticed him doing and said I would be proud to have him on my team and you should be thankful he's on yours.

It is no wonder that the Holiday Inn Express of Glen Rose, Texas has the coveted Torch Bearer Award. This hotel is absolutely pristine; the staff was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. This amazing staff did not stop at the front desk; it was with every employee I encountered during our three day stay. The manager Steve was present and hands on manager going out of his way at breakfast to meet and greet his guests. The front desk knew all of the area attractions and could give personal recommendations for all of the restraints we inquired about. The décor of the hotel was fabulous. We felt like we were in a high end hotel without the snootiness! The entire property was immaculately clean (even the bathrooms, which I often complain about) were spotless! The patio was relaxing and the pool luxurious. The room also has complimentary breakfast with a nice menu offering hot and cold selections. My youngest son loved the pancake machine (first one like it we have run into). Our room number was 314 and it offered a very nice view of the hills and beautiful green terrain. We already plan to return again to Glen Rose in September to see The Promise and we will be staying at the Holiday Inn Express without a doubt! I cannot recommend this hotel enough- there is nothing like good Texas hospitality. Glen Rose, Texas (with the help of Holiday Inn Express) is a small town that will leave a big imprint!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 314 and room 316 (adjoining rooms) and the view was great! The rooms were both su...

For the price per night, this is certainly the best value there is. The property sits upon a hill. It is clean, looks spanking new. The interior décor is beautiful. As I walked down the hallway to my room the first night, I felt like I was in a 5 star hotel. Skylar, the receptionist at the front desk was very friendly & helpful. She printed a directions the Fossil Rim park ( a must see) The room, # 203 overlooks the beautiful pool. When we got there on Thursday, they had an assortment of cookie just as you enter the front door. It was like going home. The complimentary breakfast was decent. We had bacon the first morning & omelet the other 2 mornings. In addition, there was a variety of cereal, toast, bagel, & assortment of muffins. Tea, coffee & hot chocolate was available throughout the day. Sandra, the attendant during breakfast was very friendly and informative. During 2 different conversations, she mentioned how much she loved her job, and it showed. She gave us a suggestion for a place to have dinner, and was pleased. Brittany, the other dining room attendant was also pleasant. Actually, all the staff was very friendly. To boot, had free wireless internet access. A gym, washer and dryer, and of course, I had a difficult time getting my grandchildren out of the pool and hot tub. If I were to return to Glen Rose, TX, I would not hesitate to stay at the Holiday Inn Express.

Room Tip: The view of the pool at nights is beautiful. One night it was noisy,but the pool closes @ 10pm, so i...

We loved our stay at the Hiloday Inn Express. They had a great package deal for the hotel night stay combined with a number of the other attractions in the area. The rooms we emaculant and the pool and hot tub were especially clean. The Hot breakfast each morning was great. It had a lot of options. We will be back!

Read the reviews and was very pleased with my choice. The pool was one of the best for my grandkids. They made us feel special with ice cold bottles of water upon arrival plus fresh cookies in the lobby in the evening. There was popcorn and water in the room for our TV time. COOL! Their friendliness and helpfulness was much appreciated. I felt the place was very clean and would definitely stay here in the future.

We really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The staff was so kind when we first arrived, they gave us maps to local restaurants and attractions, which was so helpful. We stayed in the Jacuzzi room, and it was so great, clean, quite, we were truly able to relax. The pool was cold for April, but we did brave the outdoor Jacuzzi as well, and it was equally nice. One of the great things too, is the breakfast. Most hotel breakfast is just yuck, but here it was Delicious. Great food, fresh, they had bagels, pastries, yogurt, juice, coffee, excellent gravy and biscuits, eggs, bacon, and pancakes. all were very good, we didn't eat anywhere else for breakfast during our stay because it was so good. I will be staying here again, for sure. Thanks for a great relaxing trip.
