“I was hoping for a quiet get away”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2010

Everything was great when we arrived. It was a cold 32 degrees out and upon entering the room I noticed it wasn't any warmer inside. When I checked the heater I found that it wasn't on. After about an hour with the heater turned on, we were finally able to take our coats off. After the room was up to temperature everything was great until we started hearing banging and thumping through the walls and loud voices. I went outside to check what was going on and notice maintenance workers moving furniture within the room next to us. This was not a big deal until it continued through the night until around 12:30 am. My wife and I have a 7 month old and this was our first night away alone since we had the baby and we were really hoping for a quiet get away. I feel like what we got was a cold/loud night away from home.

The room was nice and cozy. Really liked the set up of the place. Was a little disappointed that we couldn't find a soda machine, but that was minor considering the nice accommodations. The staff was so friendly and really made us feel welcome. We have already recommended the place to many friends and look forward to returning some time this spring. Thank you for a nice visit.

My wife and I spent our anniversary at the Inn of the Dove and plan on returning soon. you can check in anytime after 4, there are tons of restaurants in the area that are within 5 minutes. We checked in, had a good meal and returned to the room. They had candles all around the hot tub, we lit a fire and we drank some of the complimentary chanpagne and enjoyed a leisurely tub. The hotel is starting to show its age a little bit, but the room was huge, well stocked and a lot of fun. We are already planning a return trip for another romantic night.

I treated my boyfriend for his birthday to the pool suite dinner package. The room was nice & it was very romantic. He & I are both sports junkies & we were disappointed that there was not one sports channel. We didn't like the 'complimentary' champagne. I booked the room a week in advance, confirmed the menu & our food was still 45 minutes late. The room was cold when we entered because the air conditioner was on full blast. Overall, we enjoyed our stay because it was private, peaceful & romantic.

Staff very nice and accommodating, although the furniture could use an upgrade. Showers could also use a new tiling to make it more luscious. If you go, bring your own music player and also don't forget candles. If you do forget, the front desk can lend you a cd player and you can buy candles and bath oils at the front desk. Still a fun sexy place that provides solitude and intimacy. We will return!

my wife and i recently stayed on a rare overnight getaway, and we can't wait for the next chance to get back. to start with, the staff could not have been any nicer.. the room with it's private entrance gives you a great feeling of privacy, and then once inside you feel like youve left the world behind. the rooms themselves are large and very comfortable and we were especially happy with the jaccuzi for two. the perfect place for a romantic getaway
