“If You are Seeking Romance You Will Find It Here”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

You would never know from the outside of the Inn of the Dove what was inside. A friend told me about it. My husband and I decided that we would spend our 25th wedding anniversary at the Inn, since it was not too far from the church where we were married. We checked in on Friday, had a nice picnic supper which we had packed wine, cheese, bread, shrimp, crab,all yummy finger foods that could be snacked on along with some good chocolates and desserts and coffee. We had the room with the private pool and it was so much fun to be able to swim in our birthday suits and then just put our robes on and relax by the fire. The telelvision offered some rather racy choices, which was not usually our thing, but there we were! The next day we met friends and the fella's went to shoot some pool while we ladies did some shopping. Afterwards we had a nice dinner to celebrate.We got back to the Inn around ten and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our last night there. Sunday we got up and went to Mass at the Church where we were married. We recommitted ourselves to each other and headed back home to our four kids, know that we had given ourselves the best gift possible. We really enjoyed our stay and often think about it and all the other couple who venture upon it. As I said, that was for our 25th anniversary, and we just celebrated our 45th last month. Maybe for the 50th we will go back to the Inn of the Dove, now that I know it is still there!

Room Tip: Go for the room with the private pool, you will love it!

My husband surprised me with a weekend getaway for our wedding anniversary. When we pulled in at the Inn of the Dove in Bensalem, I wasn't sure what to think. They were under construction in the office area and I was worried what the rest might look like. Boy, was I very pleasantly surprised! Beautiful room, hot tub was beautiful, double shower was a cool idea, and the whole room just felt so romantic. Very clean, too. We got a free fire log, bottle of champagne and there were cookies, chocolates, and drinks in the fridge, along with a long-stemmed rose on the bed. For a short romantic getaway, this was ideal. You can't do an overnight at Cove Haven in the Poconos, and this was just what we needed!

I am a mother of two boys and once a year I go away by myself for two days/two nights. Since as you might imagine, I plan this trip all year (it's my weekend to indulge on food I Like, watch my twilight movies and just do NOTHING but relax! One criteria I always have when looking at a hotel room, it must have a hottub! I have been to the Cesar's resorts with my hubby and LOVED having a pool in my room- so when I ran across Thee Inn OTD, that did not require you to be a couple to go, I was psyched. Then I noticed it was 5 minutes from a casino, I was sold. Booked the pool suite. Check in a was a breeze, found out I got a free log, bottle of champagne and that the pool suite had a late check out of 1pm. The hotel lobby was under renovations, but I did not hear a peep. My only two disappointments were upon entering room- it spelled strongly of smoke- Now I am a former smoker, but it said it was non smoking and as I said, I am a Former smoker. If my hubby had been with me, we would have had to check out, he stronger hates the smell- luckily I had a scented candle I brought, so after a few hours it was better- after the 2d day of having my candle lit, the smell was distant- but this should be addressed, if it says nonsmoking, there should not be the smell. (Cesar's never smelled, and they are similar hotels) Then as I was unpacking getting ready to watch my DVDs, ACK, no player! Had to run to walmart and buy a cheap one! I just assumed they would have one, have not stayed in a hotel without one in years! After this, I settled in and began to relax- the bed was very comfortable (unlike Cesar's) and then there was the pool and hottub room, which ROCKED! I think I took a dip every other hour... It also had these cool blue, what they called DJ lights, which was neat- it is close to everything, a 7-11 for all the small needs and many restaurants for great take out- The room had a small fridge, coffee maker and a great shower, also a array of free Snacks, drinks and a rose on check in ... I had a great time and very relaxing- think I surprised the front desk people when I said I was alone, but they were very friendly, helpful and willing to assist- I would have rated it 5 stars if it were not for the smoke smell- if you are looking for a place with every amenity for yourself, this is the place- just be warned, there are mirrors everywhere since obviously it is meant to be a couple retreat (the only one that really bothered me wS the one above the bed) I plan to return next year!

Dear Guest,

Thank you for spending your time to post detailed feedback at everybody's favorite The tripadvisor.com. We have carefully reviewed your concern and your fabulous moments you have enjoyed during your stay.

The satisfaction of our guests is our highest priority. We express regret for inconvenience caused you from the smoking smell; yes it's very true that all of our suites are non-smoking and there is a sign inside the suite for non-smoking; but certainly some guests violate and smoke and left smell in the suite, we try our best to deal and refreshing the suite prior to arrival. The best thing is to immediately inform the Front Desk so they will be able to send our housekeeping staff to refresh the room in case any smoking smell.

Once again,

We thank you for your kind appreciation towards our services and we are looking forward to welcome you in the near future.

In the meantime, should we be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.

With best regards

Well, I must say that I chose this place after I read the other reviews on TripAdvisor. My husband and I were looking for a romantic getaway and romantic it was. The room was well equipped with the essentials. The bathroom was huge - the double headed shower was a nice surprise. The room however smelled somewhat musty, but, that did not stop us from having a good time. You pay for the room and that is what you get - a room, all other entertainment must be found on your own. My main reason for writing this review is to comment on what I found out as we were leaving. We saw a sign that advertised $95.00 per day. Curious, my husband asked since we were paying $195.00 per night. And, to our dismay, we were told that they rent the rooms from 9-5 for $95.00 as well as they do hourly rental. Boy, I felt disgusted, as if I stayed at a cheap motel. What kind of place that is supposed to be a romantic couples getaway, rents hourly. So, for those whom it matters to, be aware that this place does this type of business.

When looking for a place to stay while attending a business meeting in Bensalem, Inn of the Dove had great reviews and the price was right. When arriving at the Inn found out that the place i had chosen to stay was set up for romantic getaways. Room was clean, spacious and included a large jacuzzi, king size bed with lots of mirrors and a large roomy shower with 2 shower heads. After much laughter and jokes enjoyed my visit and would return. Rooms could use a fresh coat of paint and maybe a slight upgrade but was very clean.
