Reviewed February 11, 2012

When my husband and I first arrived there, I had to laugh. It was cheesy and kind of porn-starish, but I decided to not let that ruin my fun night out with my husband. Later on that night, we were enjoying the very clean shower. It smelled like they had just cleaned it prior to our check in. The jacuzzi was also very clean, and I kind of smelled like cleaning solution when I crawled out of it. I was kind of expecting it to be moldy and dirty, but it wasn't. If you're going for more of a Hilton feel, then go to the Hilton. But once you get past the decor it's actually pretty fun. Oh, and the bathroom looked recently updated. It was a really fun night. I'll be going again hopefully for my birthday or our anniversary, hopefully to one of the swimming pool rooms. :]

If I had to give any tips for making it better...
-Update the decor
-Clean off the candle holders... they had a little wax on them. Lol

We would like to say that the Inn of The Dove is a great getaway. I read the reviews before I booked, and I must say that some people just can't be happy. Fellas.. If you're looking for a 5 star hotel but don't want to spend your hard earned money this is the place to stay. We stayed in their Romance suite it was the first bed I ever really saw which was in heart shape and it was very comfy and the ceiling had a mirror, the hot tub was clean and worked great, Guys, this place is more for you than the girls, but even my wife loosened up and had a great time. We'll definitely go back. I really loved the staff who explained me different suites and helped me with the events in the town. We're glad and pleased we stayed there and had ecstatic time. Can't wait for our next stay.

We were completely blown away by the decor of the room plus the landscaping of the grounds. The staff was more than helpful and even went a little further by bringing extra towels and ice back to our room after we checked in. Highly recommended for a romantic getaway of any sort. Not far from other venues if you wanted to go to the casino or catch a movie within 20 minutes of both. Will definitely be going back in the near future!!!!

Room Tip: Luxury suites with swimming pool are both great. Whether deluxe or beach room.

I must admit that I was extremely nervous about visiting this motel because of all the negative reviews. Isn't it weird how we are quick to embrace negativity over positivity??? But anyway, I had a wonderful time. My boo and I stayed Friday and Saturday night and were able to get a special rate for staying for the entire weekend. The bed was humongous. I like how the jacuzzi was literally steps away from the bed. The double shower was AMAZING. The water pressure was powerful and the temperature was hot. The staff was friendly and nice and quite accommodating. It so happened we were there on a snowy weekend at the end of October so it was quite romantic. We burned firewood in the fireplace and enjoyed ourselves. The room was clean and there were plenty of fresh, clean towels. I would definitely go back again!!!

Me and my wife stayed for 2 nights in swimming pool suite for our wedding anniversary! We both loved their luxurious room.It was clean and nicely decorated. There was a fire place, big shower room, nice large tv, microwave, refrigerator and the king size bed was comfy. Oh boy!! that private heated swimming pool and jacuzzi made us really pleasured. It totally fullfilled our expectation. Restaurant and Malls were close by and very easy to find...thanks to the helpful and caring staff. We'll love to go again.......so glad we went there and can't wait to go again.

As soon as we walked into the room there was a horrible musky smell. The room has not been updated for about 30 yrs. I will never go there again and advising everyone to stay away.
