Glen Rose, Tx is very much a tourist town. With the downtown square lined with shops and places to shop for antiques and other trinkets.
We stayed for a business trip at the Best Western. The property is very well kept. The beds, rooms and all clean and comfortable.

My one issue is the breakfast (but then I usually have an issue with breakfasts that are "Starch Laden Heart Attack in Progress). All breads, bagels, cereals, etc. We got down there by 8:30am and it had been pretty well picked over and in fact they were cleaning up.

Go find breakfats some place else.

On a scal of 1 to 5 they are a 4. Points off for the breakfast.

This hotel very effectively reflects the theme of the area. The exterior columns are limestone with fossils in them. It has a very nice lobby with a large stone fireplace and fossils in display in cases. The walls of the 2nd floor common area are decorated with dinosaur pictures dating from late 1800s to early 1900s. These are interesting both as pictures of the dinosaurs and as representations of how they were viewed 100 years ago. The hotel also has a very nice porch with rocking chairs. Our room was very large with a sofa, coffee table, and easy chair. Similarly, the bathroom was large, with a long counter decorated with ivy in the far corner. Note that lower numbered rooms are close to the highway. Traffic isn’t really disruptive of sleep, but it did seem to be at a moderate level throughout the night.

The rooms were fine. One bed was quite firm, probably the firmest mattress we've ever slept on. Not uncomfortable though. TV was the older kind but we didn't mind. Room took about 25 minutes to cool down but once it was cooled it was great. Having the wall thermostat was wonderful. All in all a good stay in a sweet little town.

One of the nicest Best Westerns I have ever stayed in. For a very affordable rate we got a 2 queen room that was very clean, a good size and had a refrigerator and microwave. The hotel's motif is kind of a western theme and the lobby and common areas are very nicely done. They even have display cases in the lobby where you can buy cool rocks and fossils. The pool area is large with a hot tub, baby pool and regular pool plus lots of seating a nice back porch with rocking chairs.

A great launching point for exploring all that Glen Rose has to offer. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Stayed for 1 night during spring break with my daughter. This hotel was very clean and the empolyees were very helpful. The hotel could use a little touch up in certain areas like the grout in the bathroom and the baseboard in the bathroom looked like it had gotten wet and was separating from the wall but besides that it was a very comfortable stay. The room was very spacious and included a coffee pot and mini fridge. We enjoyed the breakfast, the selection was great from cereal and toast to belgium waffles. It was delicious and the coffee was very good. I loved the free popcorn, what a nice touch. All in all it was a great stay and I recommend it for your trip to Glen Rose.
