I read a few reviews and still decided we would give it a shot. Even thought it's outdated I figured with a nice tub in the room and just a night away would be nice. It was still nice even though the Paradise Room lacked so much.
We have stayed at two different Pocono resorts and just didn't have the extra cash this time to go there. However, The Inn of the Dove comes pretty close to their pricing just not their quality. It was also closer to our home in Maryland and we were only able to get away for one night. We will not make the mistake of returning. We will save for the Poconos first.
The buidling from the outside was very run down. We could only hope when we turned the knob to our room that is wasn't as bad. Well, for the most part it wasn't but hello.... dust much? And it had a very musty smell. The carpet desperately needs replacing. We guessed that the very ugly unmatched throw rug was probably covering a stain. We didn't have the courage to look under it!
The comforter and pillow shams on the bed smelled musty also. I never use the comforter in any hotel room because I know they hardly ever are washed. This was no exception. I thought maybe if we took the shams off we could use the pillows but no...there were no pillow cases on them and the pillows were stained. We did have two other pillows to use that had cases, but if you like to sleep with more then one you are out of luck! The bed was hard as a lumpy rock.
The tub in the room was very nice. Although it made the entire room humid. It's in the room not in a closed off area. However, once we finished our first soak we were unable to get the stopper loose. This prevented us from using it again. It would have been nice to have used it more then once that evening. We didn't feel like waiting around for maintenance and got ready for dinner.
The shower was massive and has two seperate shower heads at each end. The tile was very slippery and the shower didn't drain well.
All things we could have overlooked if we hadn't paid $$$ for the room. Next time.... wait... right...there will not be a next time here. The other rooms might be different but do not book the Paradise Room.
