“Great Bed and Breakfast Near Saguaro NP”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

I spent 56 days and nights on the road this past summer and this is the bed and breakfast that sticks out in my mind the most. When I got there the owners were pleasant and friendly. They let me choose the room I wanted to stay in because I was the only guest there, even though I had choosen a room at reservation. They made great reccomendations for local restaurants and provided me with brochures for area attractions. I was traveling alone and they sat and chatted with me every morning to keep me company. The food was excellent and provided me with the energy I needed to get through some long desert hikers. They are also in a great locations, right near the entrance for Saguaro National Park. You wont be dissapointed!

My husband and I were on a 5 week road trip doing mostly camping along the way with the occasional splurge. While in Tucson and on a whim we decided to try and find a B&B that would accomodate us on such short notice. What a gem we found when we were reffered to Desert Dove. Super friendly Inn Keepers (Betty & Harvey), comfortable room, use of the hot tub was a major bonus for us, seclusion and great breakfast! Thank you for becoming such a special part of our travels, Deset Dove! Highly recommended.

What a wonderful B&B, we can highly recommend, a comfy place to "get away" relax and do a little hiking in the Saquaro National Park. Very neat and clean....GREAT food and a wonderful collection of antiques. The garden and birds are a beautiful site in the A.M. Harvey and Betty are just delightful hosts!!!

Every time I visit Arizona, I remember why I keep coming back to this beautiful state. I have to admit: Desert Dove was my first Bed and Breakfast I've ever stayed with so they've set the standard for me. The house is beautiful and the location can't be beat. It's quiet and clean and the owners are very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this B&B to anyone who visits Tucson - the price is right for the quality you receive in return. Thanks Betty and Harvey! :)

Unfortunately we only had 2 nights at this first class B&B. Harvey and Betty Ross are so friendly, helpful and considerate. Breakfasts are delicious. Before breakfast, coffee is served and is wonderful wandering around their garden seeing many birds on the feeders. Their knowledge of the area is superb and their B&B so handy for the East Saguaro National Park. We would not hesitate in recommending this top rated B&B.

Desert Dove is on the far east side of town and is a peaceful, relaxing place to stay. It is an adobe construction which kept the temperature very comfortable. We saw a coyote and lots of birds while sitting on the back porch swing. Betty and Harvey are great hosts and very helpful . The breakfast was plentiful and superb. This is the spot if you are seeking to get away from hustle and bustle. Would be great for cyclists as you are close to Saguaro National Park (east) and we saw large numbers of cyclists in the vicinity.

Room Tip: Only two rooms but both are lovely. Can't go wrong with either of them!

Desert Dove is simply outstanding: a well-planned building conceived as a B&B from the beginning, a real adobe construction, immersed in the natural beauty of the area, very close to Saguaro National Park East. The hospitality was absolutely charming and the breakfast delicious. Top rating.
