This is the most wonderful B+B. I have stayed here 5 times (4-5 nights each time) and I cannot say enough about it. Betty and Harvey are the sweetest people you'll meet anywhere! The gourmet breakfasts, coffee, birds, hot tub under the stars!! You must visit!

Betty & Harvey are wonderful inn keepers/hosts. The B & B is wonderful, food is great and hospitality is grand. We only stayed one night but would go back any time we are in Tucson.

We planned a holiday to Tucson and felt that staying at a B and B would work best for us.We were so pleased with the Desert Dove. Betty and Harvey are wonderful hosts. Betty is a divine cook and every morning was a treat. We were there 4 mornings. The food and settings were always different, and substantial. I loved... More

There is nothing like the Desert Dove. What a stunning place. The rooms were so lovely and the back area was astoundingly beautiful at sunset. I can't compliment Betty and Harvey (Inn proprietors,) enough. Betty makes the most yummy, healthy and creatively presented breakfasts. They were truly interesting and good natured people. They told me about the Havilina that I... More

Betty and Harvey are wonderful people. The rooms are very nicely decorated. Betty cooks an amazing breakfast.. Their knowledge of the Tuscon area was very helpful. They are located on the east side of the city which is perfect for easy day trips to Tombstone, Kartchner Caverns, Bisbee, etc... We would not stay anywhere else. Looking forward to our next...

I want to share the wonderful experience that we enjoyed at the Desert Dove that lead us to stay a second time and then to purchase a home in Tucson. We have stayed in B & Bs in many different states but have never enjoyed such a wonderful experience in an idyllic setting in the desert with gormet breakfasts, incredible... More

Fair-sized, master-bedroom guest accommodations (2). Exceptionally clean, quiet, private separate area for guests. Ample safe parking. Very pleasant breakfast area, and excellent breakfasts (with variety if you stay more than a day or two!). Rooms could benefit from more comfortable chairs or love-seat, etc. Attentive, knowledgeable hosts, familiar with area and willing to go extra step to help. Very nice... More

This was our 2nd stay at the Desert Dove and we felt completely at home....execpt we didn't have to do dishes, or cook, or make the bed. Harvey and Betty are so sweet. Harvey is so informative on the local activities and attractions and Betty is such an amazing cook and hostess! We wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else when... More

Just two guest rooms in a private wing of a beautiful modern passive solar adobe, which was designed by the owner’s son, who is an award-winning architect. Betty and Harvey really sparkle as innkeepers and set a standard that would be hard to beat. The place is filled with interesting antiques and impeccably clean. The rooms and beds are very... More

We spent a long weekend at the Desert Dove. My wife and I loved the Desert Dove. The location is a little hard to find but well worth it. The surrounding landscape is beautiful. The house was very unique. The breakfast was great. The owners were great. The website listed the Desert Dove as having the Top 15 - Best... More
