“Great Place”
Reviewed 24 December 2013

Enjoyed our room, the friendly service, the light breakfast, pool and hot tub. Everything was clean. The beds were a little uncomfortable...felt like it was tilting to one side, but I would recommend this hotel.

My number one concern in any hotel is the bed. Unfortunately, our bed was so worn out, soft and mushy, we could not use it and used the fold-down Murphey bed in the living area instead. The hotel management had put a 4" foam pad on the top of the mattress - not sure if this was supposed to fix the fact that the bed is was too soft, or if they think it is a bonus.

Everything else was good - big room and living area with a full kitchen and a nice coffee-cafe on premises. Great location, and great price for a suite. I would stay again if they would invest in new, firm beds.

Room Tip: Ask if the bed is new or if it is covered with a foam pad.

Thank you for your feedback. Our goal at the Stratford Inn is to create a "home away from home" feel for all of our guests.

We deeply apologize for any discomfort your experienced during your visit. We have looked into the situation and will be replacing the mattress this winter.

We look forward to hosting your next trip to Ashland.

Regards,

Stratford Inn Management

Comfortable place, guest laundry is free except for detergent. But don't accept a room with a connecting door to the next room. Gap under the door is almost an inch high so what goes on in there is in your room too, and vice versa. Great, though, if you actually WANT to party with your neighbors.

I absolutely fell in love with this place!! Perfect location and great customer service!! It is such a great deal and the extra attention and care from the staff really made my stay wonderful! The breakfast in the morning was great, and the cafe next to it has the nicest girls working! I really enjoyed the cleanliness of the rooms.

We found the Stratford Inn to be a very affordable, comfortable and convenient base for visits to Ashland for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and other activities in the Rogue Valley. Rooms are clean, comfortable and relatively spacious. Amenities include a basic free breakfast, nice indoor pool and quiet area. The staff are friendly and very helpful.

The location of the Stratford is also excellent, right on Main Street and just about four blocks from OSF's theaters, shopping and dining.

This is an excellent hotel option if you are visiting Ashland for the plays, but don't want to spend $250-$350 for the many pricier Bed & Breakfasts and luxury hotels in town. It is also IN downtown, compared to most other moderately priced hotels that are a mile or more away near the interstate.

We will definitely stay here again, and probably bring our kids next time.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on the east side for a view of the valley and mountains, and to avoid road noise from...

The Stratford Inn is a great place to stay when one visits Ashland. The location is close to all of the main attractions: theater, restaurants, shopping,
parks, library, and music. All of this in a relaxed environment.
All of the staff I have encountered are welcoming and helpful. The facility is clean and well maintained. I've never had an issue with something not working or in a degraded condition.
I would recommend the Stratford to anyone who wants a clean, comfortable place to stay while on the road.

This in-town hotel is conveniently located walking distance from the OSFand the shops and restaurants of Ashland. The beds were comfortable, rooms fairly spacious, bathrooms well appointed, if not luxurious, and all very clean. It was great to have a small fridge and microwave in the room as well. And the indoor pool was very nice--large and clean. The complimentary breakfast was just ok--cereals and breads were fine, but the egg sandwich makings were not very appetizing and coffee was mediocre. (I preferred to take a brisk morning walk to Noble Coffee a few blocks away for my a.m. coffee.) Staff were all very pleasant. The only real drawback was that the walls aren't very soundproof, but that was only a problem one night because a busload of teenagers was in residence. And the hallways are rather dark and dingy; they should get rid of the dark paneling! Otherwise we found the place to be quiet. I still prefer the charm of a nice B&B, and the cost of the rooms here weren't much less than the B&Bs, but if a motel suits your needs better, I'd definitely recommend the Stratford over one of the outlying chain motels.

Room Tip: We requested a "quiet room" and were placed on the back of the motel on the 3rd floor, whi...

Good morning,

Thanks for taking the time to give us a review. We always appreciate guest feedback. I saw that you weren't satisfied with the coffee. I'm curious, are you talking about the coffee that came with the free continental breakfast, or the coffee from Boulevard Coffee (the coffee coffee in the lobby)?

We're glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again soon!
