Are you planning on passing through Glen Rose, Texas? Well, if you are, don’t forget to stop and see the sights. This small town is full of fun just waiting to happen, and your fun can all begin at the Dinosaur Valley Inn, located on the street running right through Glen Rose. (You can’t miss it.) Plus, this motel is just a short drive from most of the main attractions in Glen Rose.
Here are some of the perks that Glen Rose’s Dinosaur Valley Inn has to offer:
Affordable luxury. This motel provides up-to-date furnishings and décor. The rooms could actually be considered lavish with their marble bathrooms. The rooms are fully stocked with ironing board, hair dryer, plenty of towels, and soap and shampoo containers. Plus, the beds are extra comfortable. The rooms have plenty of lighting and plenty of entertainment availability without you having to go out to see a movie. All you have to do is rent a movie at the check-in desk for a small price. Just sit back and relax for the price of about $110 per room.
Kid-friendly atmosphere. When you first walk into Dinosaur Valley Inn, you will see the check-in desk to your left, and you will see what looks like a hunting lodge on your right. Their lobby is decorated/furnished with true Texas detail, and this motel welcomes families to hang out in this area. Especially during the summer, you will likely see hoards of children running about while their parents visit in the lobby. This does lend a relaxed feeling to the motel. Even so, many of the children play on the elevator and nobody seems to stop them, so take the stairs.
Delicious breakfast. Dinosaur Valley Inn spreads out a full-breakfast buffet in their dining area, and this meal is included in the cost of your room, so eat up. You can eat toast, pastries, cereal, and even make yourself some homemade waffles. They offer different types of juice, coffee, and tea to wash down your meal. The best thing is that you can even visit the dining area in between meals to make yourself a cup of tea, if you like. You don’t even have to ask. Just make yourself at home. This adds to your comfort while you stay at Dinosaur Valley Inn.
Swimming pool and Jacuzzi. The Dinosaur Valley Inn has a swimming pool and a Jacuzzi, and both stay in regular use, even after dark. Unless you don’t mind kids splashing about, though, try to swim earlier in the day while the kids are out seeing the sights. This way, by the time the kids come in for an evening swim, you will be ready to go to your room for some relaxation. If you enjoy kids, then an evening swim is just right for you because plenty of kids will be splashing about during the evening, especially during the summer.
Convenient access to main attractions. Dinosaur Valley is one of the main attractions that is open year round, and it draws many people to Glen Rose, Texas. You can drive just a few miles down the road from the Dinosaur Valley Inn to get there. If you don’t want to see authentic dinosaur footprints, then you can drive about a mile up the road from Dinosaur Valley Inn and see The Promise, a Christian-based religious play that local people put on for the public throughout much of the year. The best thing is that Dinosaur Valley Inn is centrally located, so it is not far to travel when you are ready to get some rest.
