When visiting Comanche Peak Nuclear, I always try to stay at the Dinosaur Valley Best Western. The people are great, the rooms clean and confortable and the atmosphere is almost like being at home. This place is one of my favorite hotels, regardless of the cost.

Very nice western themed hotel. They got the basics right for a great hotel stay. Very helpful staff. Good breakfast. Nice pool area. fast wi-fi. Family oriented amenities. Games, dinosaur pictures coloring for kids. Nice little books collection to read. Porches by the pool and fresh popcorn are nice touches.Great stay overall.

My son and I were going on a last minute vacation before school started. This was an great hotel that was close to all of the Glen Rose activities. Our room was large and well appointed. Complimentary popcorn snack was a hit with my son. The pool was large and clean. (Consider bringing your own pool towels, those provided were...

Clean and comfortable rooms. No frills but good choice for families and those wanting a quality stay for the money spent. The staff are friendly and helpful, wiling to do the best they can to assure you have a good stay. The breakfast is ok but not as expansive as a La Quinta or Hampton Inn.

I so wanted to write a good review as I always try to stay at a Best Western, but just can't. Understanding that there are 3 tiers of BW's and this is the lowest end tier, should not excuse this room. I would have asked for another one but have a feeling they would all be the same. Room barely...

The people were very friendly,the decor was very nice and the room was big. But the breakfast was HORRIBLE, the hot tub was cold, the TV remote did not work very good, and there was cast iron pool furniture in Texas heat!! Not a good idea! And the maids did not come until 5:00 pm. Overall I would recommend this...

This Best Western has a home-like feeling - especially rooms on the first floor that open to patios with rocking chairs. The parking lot gets tight when the establishment is full. The breakfast area was small compared to many other Best Westerns (and other chains), and was disappointing one morning when the only hot food was biscuits and gravy.

No wireless internet available. Called several times and got no assistance or return call from front desk. Every time we went downstairs, no one was at the desk - had to ring bell for service. In today's world, internet service is important. Did not feel like any help was given to correct the problem.

The rooms are spacious and hotel presents well {lobby, decor, etc.}. However there is no ventilation in the bathroom {no a/c or vent}, towels are rough and of extremely poor quality, Wifi is very slow and erratic. Housekeeping was unavailable to make up room at noon or after.

room was very accommodating.I was a little disappointed from false advertising . Reason this hotel was chosen and some things were no longer offered that was on website. Was disappointed with cleanliness of swimming pool. My grand-kids enjoyed themselves and that's what counts.
