We stayed at Inn at 202 Dover on a Friday night to celebrate our anniversary. We were impressed with the elegant and lovely building, public areas, and rooms (all except ours are suites). We were in the Victorian room, which is nice enough but fairly small (though the bathroom is big)--unlike the huge and beautiful suites that we saw, the Victorian was not a room we would want to spend a lot of time in other than for sleeping. I think the price of the room--$279 plus tax--is a little high, but the suite prices were much higher so the Victorian seemed like a relative bargain. If we were going to stay more than one night I would definitely want to stay in a suite.
The bathroom had an air jet tub (which my husband tried and liked) and rain shower combination. There was good water pressure, and thick towels and robes were provided. One thing that would have been nice to have is a nightlight in the bathroom, because I didn't like having to turn on the bright light in the middle of the night.
One of the thoughtful amenities of the inn is a communal drinks and snack area with water and soda in the fridge and all kinds of hot drinks to make with the machine (a Tassimo, I think), as well as granola bars, chips, etc. Water bottles are in your room, and they put chocolate cookies in the room while we were out.
The innkeepers, Ron and Shelby, are welcoming, helpful, and interesting to talk to.
It was a delight eating breakfast in the sunny enclosed porch /dining room, and Ron made a delicious hot cocoa for me (I had mentioned my preference for cocoa or tea when we reserved the room). There is also a beautiful Victorian conservatory next to the dining room. They serve dinner at the inn also but we did not eat there. The night we were there they were hosting a rehearsal dinner, which was pretty loud, but they left between 10 and 11 and it was quiet after that except for a couple of people slamming room doors when they came in later and also when they went out early Saturday morning.
All in all this is an excellent choice for a romantic or other special getaway.
