Best Western Dinosaur Valley Inn & Suites
Ranked #3 of 8 Hotels in Glen Rose
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 April 2014

We just got home after staying at Best Western for over a month while working nearby. We started staying at the last minute after another hotel lost our reservation. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate us, and make our stay comfortable. They were great!

The hotel itself was built with extreme attention to detail, and is unique.

Some items to make the hotel 5 stars: Serve some meat at breakfast and upgrade the internet connection. These would both be easy to change and make a big difference (at least for me).

If we work in the area again, we will definitely put this hotel at the top of our choices for accommodations.

Room Tip: The ground floor has some rooms that open onto a covered porch. The porch has rocking chairs, benche...

This hotel has both a delightful set of murals and a most interesting collection of framed dinosaur drawings from old science magazines and such. Well worth one's while to stop in and view these. The rooms are very nice and location is easy to find. We had a pleasant stay.

Dear June,

Thank you for posting this review. The murals on our walls and the Dinosaur picture gallery bring Glen Rose history in to our hotel and they are very popular among our guests. We appreciate your business and hope to see you again during your next visit to Glen Rose area.

I was very disappointed in my stay. My ice box in my room did not work nor did the ice makes on the 3rd and 2nds floor or the threadmill in the workout facility. The bathtub was extremely slippery and there need to be a better traction at the bottom of the tub.

Our family stayed in a double-queen suite with a sofa bed. The room was spacious, very clean, and all was in working order. The beds were comfortable. The overall facility is well-maintained, very clean, and had a very nice appearance. The free complimentary breakfast was fine and adequate - no complaints. Free hot coffee/tea/hot cocoa is served all day and they also have free popcorn (nice treat!).

The fitness room had some equipment issues with a non-working treadmill and non-working stationary bike. However, the weight machine and dumbbells were available and working.

Overall, I would recommend to friends and family, just need to work on that fitness room.

This spring break was our fourth stay at this hotel and it was a great stay as always. The staff was wonderful from the front desk to housekeeping to the breakfast attendants. Our room was a suite with two queen beds and it was very spacious at a great price. The pool was heated so my kids enjoyed it all afternoon and of course their signature fresh popcorn every evening! This is an award winning hotel and we experienced that in every aspect of our stay. The manager lady knows us by now and mentioned that they were a little short staffed during spring break but we did not feel that at all in their service. Keep up the good work and we will be back this summer!

Room Tip: Their staff is very well informed about the dining options in Glen Rose. Their suggestions always wo...

This hotel is pretty nice for the area. The room we got was a suite and it was big enough for our family of four.

Pros: There's a fridge and microwave which is nice. Complimentary popcorn and tea/coffee/hot chocolate 24 hours. Laundry facility which came in handy for us. Location close to Fossil Rim and Dinosaur park.

Cons: The bathtub was DISGUSTING. There was a nonslip mat in the tub and when I lifted it up there was just grossness underneath. Refused to bathe my children in it. Also, we booked online and got the AAA rate, but when we checked in they tried to tell us that rate wasn't available. My husband had to argue with them for about 5 minutes before they would give us the rate THAT WE HAD ALREADY BOOKED. Not cool.

If we return to the Glen Rose area again I'd probably stay at the La Quinta but if they were booked (which was the case on this trip) I guess I would grudgingly stay here again, but I'd check the bathtub as soon as we got to the room! ;)
