“great location and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2012

The room was small but clean and cozy. The staff were helpful and friendly. The breakfast is what seems to have become standard fare at a lot of hotels: buscuits and gravy, toast, danishes, etc (bleh!). However, there is a great little coffee shop next to the dining area where we were able to get our lattes and other goodies.

We were in town for the 4th of July parade, and this location is ideal. Could even watch from the room if you wanted to stay cool and out of the crowds (of course the kids want to be at the curb to get the candy and popsicles!).

There is an indoor pool that the kids enjoyed. The kids also enjoyed the daily cookies on the check in counter.

The Stratford is a solid choice near downtown, but the breakfast was truly mediocre. The coffee was terrible, several of the pastries stale and the view was poor. The Bard's Inn has a much better breakfast with a fabulous view of Mt. Ashland. It is much closer to downtown since it is one block from Lithia Park (where many of the restaurants are located) and two blocks to the Elizabethan and Bowmer theatres. The Stratford is at the other end of town so slightly less convenient for walking (though it does have a Safeway across the street...).

Room Tip: Ask for parking lot side since Sikiyou Boulevard has fairly steady flow of traffic day and night.

Dear Mr. Stephen D,

I’m sorry to hear that we did not meet your exceptions during your recent stay, I do express regret that you felt our breakfast was anything less than desirable. I have to suggest that breakfast; can be taken to any location in the hotel, such as Boulevard Coffee, or in your room with a lovely view of the mountains.

Please contact me directly if I can ever be of any assistance to you and your family.

Sincerely,

Stacy Lee

We always enjoy our stays when we are at Stratford Inn. We are able to walk to the plays and to the high school for the July 4th concert.

Very accommodating and friendly staff. A ten minute walk past charming storefronts and restaurants to the three Oregon Shakespears Festival theatres and Lithia Park. Will definitely make this a hotel to stay at for all future Ashland trips.
Breakfast area was roomy and the selection ample.
There is also a good cafe on the premisis.
Near South Oregon University campus as well.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room on the "mountain view side" and were happy with it. In the morn...

The "accessible" room had a nice wide doorway to bathroom, and level floor shower, but the king bed was on a platform, not accessible for the Hoyer Lift we use to get my wife in and out of bed. The Hoyer utilizes a sling for lifting my wife, and it is on casters, with two extended legs that need to roll under the bed. A platform base on a bed prohibits this. The next-door room, with two queen beds, both on legs, was fine for the Hoyer, but the doorway to the bathroom is too narrow for a power wheelchair. The sinks in both bathrooms were not accessible for my wife's wheelchair to roll up to. They didn't allow for the arms of the wheelchair to slide under the counter. Other than these limitations, the location of Stratford Inn is good in relation to the OSF theatres, and the cleanliness of the rooms is very good. The free breakfast room was space restrictive for my wife's wheelchair, with other people in there. We therefore ate in the coffee shop.

Room Tip: If you need an accessible room here, be sure to be specific as to your needs, and be sure the person...

Dear Draym,

I’m sorry to hear that we didn’t exceed your expectations. I wanted to let you know that we are in the process of replacing all the kings’ beds with different bed frames, so they will no longer be on platforms. We have taken all your suggestions into consideration and are working to make our handicapped rooms more accessible for each of our guests.

We appreciate the feedback, and hope to have you and your wife stay with us in the near future.

Please contact me for more assistance in the future with any of your reservations.

I stay here every year when I go to The Oregon Shakespeare Festival. The Stratford Inn is part of the joy of this vacation. The Inn has lovely rooms, an excellent staff and facilities. I like being able to park my car and walk everywhere during my stay. Morning breakfast is another convenience that I appreciate.
