Great B&B in the heart of Golden

4.0 on November 07, 2017

We chose the Dove Inn to experience some Colorado 'flavor.' It did not disapppoint, and it is an excellent value compared to the local 'regular' hotels. Each room has a distinct theme to enjoy, although the bed covers could be a little more modern. The dining room and front porch are a pleasure. Staff is courteous and knowledgeable regarding local places, particularly restaurants. We will stay there again!

Perfect location for our visit

My husband and I stayed 4 nights, using the Inn as our home base. Elizabeth and her staff gave us great advice for sightseeing and having water, coffee and other amenities available really added to our experience.

Anniversary Stay

4.0 on November 01, 2017

Stayed 2 nights in late October. Really beautiful home and better than expected room. Only a few steps away from downtown Golden. Breakfast tasty and unique. Staff and owner are wonderful people. Bed was as comfortable as I have ever slept on. My wife and I had a wonderful stay and we would love to come back and visit again.

Very nice stay in a great town

We had a very nice weekend in Golden and Estes Park. Breakfast was excellent. Recommend the Dove Inn if you are planning a trip to the west side of Denver.

Staying at the Dove

Our Innkeeper appeared rushed and was not what we are use to when arriving at a B and B. She was ready to go on vacation so possibly that was in her mind. It took a while before anyone greeting us initially. Golden Colorado was great.

Innkeeper Response
I sincerely apologize, getting ready to go on vacation is no excuse for bad service. Greeting my guest at The Dove Inn is my favorite part of running a B & B. I hope you will give us another chance to make it up to you next time you are visiting Golden. Thank you for staying with us.

stayed for better part of a week, and the hosts took great care - even went out of their way to make sure I was taken care of.

Central but Quiet

Just off the main street with on street parking. Check in and out were quick and effortless. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a good combination of buffet and cooked. Everyone was friendly and made us feel welcome.

First time staying at a B&B

Great first experience staying at a B&B. The employees were great - from the service to the food and snacks. We met interesting people who were staying there at the same time. Golden is a beautiful town.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for the nice review, and thank you for staying with us at The Dove Inn.

Nice place

Nice cozy room with books and dvds. Breakfast was good. You can get coffee, tea, juice and some snacks at any time (great because I arrived very late). Friendly place. Would stay there again.

So Great!
