The hotel was very nice. When we got there, we could check in early which was awesome. The lobby is very nice. I enjoyed looking at all the fossils behind the glass cases (and they were for sale!) The room was very clean with a nice flat screen TV. The bathroom was very nice with a hairdryer and the room had an iron which was used for out evening clothes. The pool area was very nice too. A bbq grill in the corner if you want to cook and they even have a fish Koi pond. While we were swimming in the afternoon we smelled popcorn. The beds are very comfortable. They had free afternoon popcorn which was very good. The morning breakfast hit the spot too!

Excellent. Free popcorn. Breakfast could've been a little better and the pools needed some attention. Leaves. Did like the fact besides a hot tub there were two pools. A regular sized and a large but not deep pool for the kids. Excellent place to stay. Clean and good value. Friendly staff.

Great hotel and staff. The room was clean and comfortable and at a great price. My 3 year old daughter loved the wading pool that was only 1.5ft deep!! The only issues we had (to small to tell staff about) was there was not a fitted sheet on the bed & breakfast did not have any fruit, yogurt or meat.

This hotel was conveniently located in Glen Rose. It was easy to find and easy to get to all major attractions. The hotel has a quaint feel and unique decor. It was a nice quiet hotel with very friendly staff.

Overall the hotel was nice and clean and staff friendly and helpful. Pools and lounge furniture were very nice and the towels provided for use outside was a nice touch. The only concerns we had were the following: Game Room is not much of a game room - kids were disappointed. Didn't see any complimentary nachos, only popcorn. Bathtub/shower in room could have used better grips/non skid surface protectors and the option to use as a bath. We have a 3-1/2 year old and since we couldn't fill the tub up for a bath, we had to use the shower and it was very slippery - she almost fell a couple of times. TVs were small tube kind, not bigger flat screens like many of the hotels have now. Beds did not have fitted sheets over the mattress, only flat sheet. This seemed kind of strange, as it doesn't stay in place and kept exposing the mattress cover.

The hotel appears to be new, and has a cowboy/dinosaur motif. Fossil display and natural wood rail enclosing loft in lobby. Pool area includes kiddie pool, hot tub, fish pond with waterfall and porch with rockers. Guest room was spacious and comfortable. Shower pressure was low; toilet tissue holder was inconveniently located. Breakfast room was clean, and contained a nice variety of hot and cold items. The aspects of friendliness and cleanliness were impressive, and the cost fit our budget well. A staff member gave me speedy aid; she helped me book an extra night. Would definitely stay there again.
