“The best in Glen Rose”
Reviewed 14 March 2012

This was our second visit to Glen Rose and there could not have been a better place than the Dinosaur Valley Inn & Suites to stay. Our kids instited that we stay there again. We were blown away when many members of the staff recognized us from our last stay - even the breakfast attendant! The hotel is unique and the service is the best that you can get. We were very happy to see that their rooms have been renovated and the already good breakfast has just become better. A lot of top name brand items on the menu. Heated pool was awesome. The management and the staff understands true hospitality and knows how to demonstrate it. Thank you for a great stay and we will be back soon !

$74 for King Room. Comfortable bed, quality towels. Fridge and microwave. Friendly desk help. Close to Fossil Rim Wildlife Center. Would have given higher rating, but they had the lobby and corridor areas so HOT, it was uncomfortable to load and unload luggage.

My husband and I stayed here recently as a last-minute overnight. We were SO IMPRESSED that a Best Western would have the high standards this one evidently does.

For a great rate ($64!!) we got a room with 10 ft ceilings, a fridge, microwave, porch with rocking chairs, and a free breakfast.

Can't beat it. They have a pool, kiddie pool and hot tub (outside). Also, plenty of vending and snacks plus a sundries station at the front desk. They also have onsite self-serve washers/dryers, if needed.

Can't beat it for the price. Rooms were very clean, too. Front desk staff very sweet and friendly. Interior of the lobby is true Texas with a slice of the area: fossils and gifts.

A must-stay. Especially during the week - it was soooo quiet.

Room Tip: If you want a room with the rocking chairs, they are located on the first floor - you'll see the...

We stayed at the Dinosaur Valley Inn during our business trip to Glen Rose. We wanted to make this outing a business plus leisure trip and this hotel turned out to be the perfect fit. It has that western feel out side and inside is "you have to see it to believe it". A huge atrium lobby with a antlers chandelier, a fire place and huge western murals on the walls. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. They briefed us with the current weather, things that we can do that day and info on the restaurants that were open that day. This was a very nice touch as most of the hotels don't bother telling you all this or just show you the brochures rack. Staff at the dinosaur valley inn demonstrated true hospitality, we were very impressed.
It was 100 degrees when we checked in and the room temperature was maintained just right to make you feel relaxed as soon as you enter the room. Room was larger than most of the hotels that I stay at and was very clean and smell free. High speed internet was actually HIGH SPEED - a big plus for a business traveler. The hotel has a beautiful swimming pool set up. We sat on the porch by the pool and worked in a relaxed environment. The mattress was nice and firm and the pillows were very comfortable.
In the morning, the breakfast was choices were more than sufficient for all needs. We checked out right after the breakfast and was once again impressed with the friendliness, knowledge and professonalism of the staff. I have decided to comeback to Glen Rose and this hotel with my family this summer. There could not be a better hotel to stay in this area. Great value for your money.

Room Tip: Their minisuites are very spacious.
