The quaint, unique town of Ashland is home to the world-famous Oregon Shakespeare Festival, and is a hub of culture in Southern Oregon.

Our Ashland hotel is within walking distance to the best destinations in Ashland, like Lithia Park and the festivities of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Close to Mount Ashland Inn, a haven for ski bums, our Ashland hotel is in the center of this small college town while just a short drive away from the beauty of Mt. Ashland.

Centrally located and blocks from everything, theres no better value and location than our Ashland hotel. Walk to hiking trails or visit the unique boutiques and fine dining of the town. Mount Ashland Ski Area is a mecca for snow sports lovers, while the local Rogue River Rafting companies are just a short walk away. No matter what outdoor recreation you prefer, youll find it at your doorstep.

Southern Oregon University is nestled in Ashland, but were equally a college and culture-infused town. There are miles of hiking trails surrounding our Ashland hotel, and dont forget to explore the other nearby towns. Historic Jacksonville is just a short drive away, and home to the annual Britt Festival where musicians from around the world perform. Experience the gold rush days in this preserved town, thats been largely unchanged for generations.

The Shakespeare Festival runs from February through October, but theres an abundance of options beyond theater. Shop dozens of truly unique stores, and make sure you try a favorite ice cream flavor from Zoes Caf. The streets come alive during the summer months, with live music available at the local pubs and in the park. If its your first time in town, try out the natural water fountains for a real surprise.

Comfortable and convenient

27/11/2016 lilyfelix, Portland, Oregon

I stayed at Bard's Inn because Groupon offered a great rate. Since I usually stay less than 24 hours in Ashland on trips, I tend to stay further out of town to save money, so being in a centrally loca... more

Dear Bards Inn Guest, Thank you for choosing the Bard's Inn. It is always a pleasure to welcome a first time guest. We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience at our property. I'm glad you enjoyed your 'spotless' and comfortable room, superior breakfast, and downtown location. I'm sorry you had to lug your suitcase to your room. Next time just let our staff know, and we will be happy to give you a hand. While it is true that we do not have a work out room, our sister property the Windsor Inn across town does, which our guests are welcome to use. I'm also happy to hear our staff was friendly and helpful. I will pass on your comments to our team. We look forward to your next stay with us. Sincerely, Kyle, Guest Relations

Dear Bard's Inn Guest, Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed our clean rooms, great breakfast and pleasant staff. Due to our downtown location, two of our buildings are across different streets. However, as you mentioned, the crosswalk and traffic light make crossing easy. I'm sorry to hear you lamp shade was dusty. I will follow up with our cleaning staff. We hope you will stay with us again soon. Sincerely, Kyle, Guest Relations

26/11/2016 Carol S,

I'm not sure if I had a unusual stay or what happened. But I can't figure out how they have good scores. To start I'm moving from Portland to Texas. I had my car full of valuable items and had to unlo... more

Dear Bard's Inn Guest, I apologize that your stay was not satisfactory. We hold ourselves to a high standard of service and we fell short. The heating system did have some mechanical problems, but you will be happy to hear that our maintenance crew is wrapping up repairs today. I'm sorry to hear the parking lot filled up. When the hotel sells out, occasionally some guests will need to park on the adjacent side-street. Ashland is very safe and we haven't had problems with theft either from our lot or the side street. And yes, due to our downtown location, some of our deluxe and suite rooms are located across the main street, with a light and crosswalk. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the clean, comfortable room itself. We hope that you will give us another chance to exceed your expectations. Best of luck in Texas. Sincerely, Kyle, Guest Relations
