This hotel is the Best to stay in Ashland. They always pay attention to detail ---love this hotel. Stay here every year and have never had a bad experience. The location is so convenient to downtown and restaurants. The staff seem knowledgeable of the events and places of interest.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

After a long rough day on the road, we finally reached our stop for the night in Ashland. We were greeted by Bernie at the front desk, a warm face with a caring smile, that made all the days trouble just drift away. She checked us in quickly, and made sure she put us in a quiet wing of the...

I had an first-rate customer-service experience, but, before I get to that, let's get the basics out of the way: The room was good, the bed comfortable, the breakfast items varied (plenty of protein) and good, and the location easy walking distance to Oregon Shakespeare Festival plays. But on the first night here I was being kept awake -- it...

It isn't just the Bard's Inn location that makes this our favorite (it's in the heart of downtown, just a few blocks from the Shakespeare Festival, shops and restaurants) -- we love the warm welcome we receive every time we stay here. Terrific office staff (thank you, Kamana and Ryan, for the free upgrade to the suite -- you know...

Hotel is a 3 min walk from the park and Shakespeare theatre. We stayed across the street from the main building (there are several), which was a 1 min walk from the breakfast room. Our room was immaculate, with very comfortable dual queen bed and nice decor. I'm guessing this was a refreshed room because it was perfect. Set back...

King sized bed overwhelmed size of room. Smaller than any room we have stayed in including a motel 6. Coffee pot under sink but no room to put by sink if using it. Breakfast fairly good but have to go outside to get to it.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback. Our sincere apologies for falling below your expectations during your stay with us regarding the size of our economy rooms. Our deluxe rooms offer more counter space. Our full hot breakfast is prepared fresh daily as a buffet style, and nice to know you enjoyed it!

This is a great location because it is so walkable to downtown Ashland. Everything you need is so close by! The staff (especially Cat, at the front desk) is very attentive, the breakfast was good (nice to have different selections from the hotel norm). Room was cozy and comfortable. My only issue was that there was a band staying in...

After a miserable day on the road with snow through most of Washington and Oregon, we stopped overnight in Ashland on our way to Arizona. Check in was fast, informative and considerate. We were assigned a room on the main floor so we could load up and leave early without disturbing others. The room was clean but smelled musty, looked...
