“Great hotel, too bad they scalped a hillside for it”
Reviewed June 25, 2009

As the title implies, the hotel meets and exceeds expectations for a hotel. It's too new for most normal complaints, but when your business *is* the environment and the company puts you in a hotel that was on a beautiful hillside surrounded by spring wildflowers, it bends the mind. Also looks like the whole hillside is slated for further development in the near future and the views may not last.

I would not recommend this hotel to a friend, simply because there are older, more established hotels in the area that didn't sprawl the city outward into undeveloped areas. Sorry guys.

Completed in November of 2008 this property is basically brand new and it shows. Clearly in competition with the other chains of mid-level hotels sprouting up in Glen Rose and it appears La Quinta is jockeying for position there. Nicely appointed lobby complete with fireplace and sitting area. Front desk personnel are exceptional with customer service. Check in was a breeze and was greeting with “we have been expecting you.” We had a king bed, microwave, fridge, free high speed Internet access, in room coffeemaker, iron, and hairdryer. The room was clean as were the linens and towels. House keeping was very helpful when asked for additional items etc; although I do have one complaint about that department. If you are staying a couple of days and you happen to be in your room while house keeping is working on rooms along the hall near you. They pull the security slide-latch open to keep the door open while the come and go from the cleaning/supply cart. Well…they let the door slam against the security latch which, to me, is a very irritating and annoying BANG! Wouldn’t be so bad if it were only once or twice but it goes on many, many times for each and every room…You won’t sleep or get that nap you were thinking about. A nice touch I’m seeing in the newer La Quintas is hard wood entries and bathrooms. There is a 32” flat screen LCD television with multiple stations and HBO. Breakfast is totally continental consisting of danishes, bagels, juices, coffee, teas, and the signature waffle. This location is the closest hotel to Dinosaurs Valley State Park. A must see when in Glen Rose. Restaurants we ate at were Donna K’s Catfish…yumm…yumm, fresh, good and abundant. North Hwy 144 a couple of miles. Hammonds BBQ, the real deal and delicious, don’t miss the home made pies in many varieties. Hwy 67 not far from La Quinta. On the fun side and to kick it old school is to head out 17 miles to Gandbury (Hwy 144) and check out the Brazos Drive In Theater. Established 1952 and has not closed since. Open Friday and Saturday nights only. Box office opens at 7:30pm. Movie time 8:30pm. A word of advice…arrive prior to 7:30pm to get in line as this is a popular place. I’ll defiantly stay at this La Quinta again.
