“Outstanding motel”
Reviewed 21 June 2012

The motel is a great place to stay at a bargain price. It's immaculate, well-kept up, with friendly staff, good service, and great breakfast included. Located on the outskirts of Ashland, my top floor room looked out on empty fields with a view of the mountains– providing just the peace and quiet I needed after a full day driving. Next time I stay, I'm going to try the pool!

Our family has been coming to Ashland regularly for the last ten years and we have always enjoyed the clean rooms, hospitible staff and affordability of this Econolodge. Our children enjoy the pool in summer and we enjoy the easy access to downtown Ashland. The rooms are always quiet, comfortable and well kept. Why pay more when you can have it all here for less? And hot waffles and coffee in the morning!

Room Tip: We always stay upstairs and the rooms have been equally quiet.

We stayed for one night at this motel after finding it on "BringFido.com". We drove to California and needed a place that allowed pets. They charged $10 for our dog.This has a convenient location right near the ramp to Interstate 5. The room was clean with a king size bed and microwave. Don't remember a coffee maker. Our room face a field on the property, so it was easy to let the dog out to potty.
The drawback was the poor breakfast offerings. There was very little to choose from... 2 generic cereals, make-your-own waffles, one fruit(apples wrapped in plastic), and slices of poundcake. They used 3oz cups for milk and juice. Guess they didn't want us using too much. We had a 10 hour drive ahead of us and were still hungry, so we stopped later for a real breakfast.

About us: We've been coming to Ashland for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival every year for seven or eights years now. We discovered the Econo Lodge on our first trip, and have been coming back every year. We usually stay in Ashland for three nights at a time. We try to be budget conscious. We often travel with our dog.
Location: The Econo Lodge is conveniently located right off I-5, which makes it particularly easy for those "on the road" heading further North or South. If you're visiting the Shakespeare Festival, it's a simple five minutes by car to the theaters. Parking near the theaters is pretty easy, so there's not much advantage to staying right in town (tip: the parking garage on Hargadine Street is only $3 for all day and evening, and you can come and go as you please during that time). For folks traveling with dogs, there are fields surrounding the Econo Lodge where you can walk the dogs. Also, Ashland's really beautiful dog park is also only about five minutes away.
Rooms: The rooms are very clean and pretty well appointed for a budget motel chain. Beds are comfortable, and the other furnishings usually include a comfortable armchair, desk, lamp table, as well as the usual chest of drawers and place to hang clothes. A refrigerator, microwave and TV complete the picture. Good bedside lighting, as well, for those who want to bone up on their Shakespeare before the next day's plays. Very effective, easy to use, heating and cooling system. The wireless internet works extremely well, with no registration or passwords to bother with.
Other amenities: We don't usually use the pool, but it looks very clean and well maintained. There appears to be a coin operated washer and dryer also available. Parking is plentiful.
Breakfast: We love our free breakfast at Econo Lodge. The Belgian waffles are great. True, you may have to wait a few minutes if there's a crowd, but there are always other things to munch while you wait. There's usually fresh fruit, some type of loaf bread, toast and cereal, as well as the usual coffee, tea, milk and fruit juices. But it's the Belgian waffles that stand out. Breakfast isn't fancy, but then again, you'd have to go someplace and pay for fancy.
Staff: Everyone we've ever dealt with over the years has been extremely kind and welcoming. These folks seem to really care that their guests have a good stay. Ira, who you'll meet in the breakfast room, always has a warm welcome for guests, and has become a real pal over the years.
Price: It really can't be beat!
Recommendation: If you're visiting Ashland, don't stay anywhere else. We've stayed in high-end hotels, moderate hotels and motels, and B&Bs all over the world. The Econo Lodge in Ashland is still one of our very favorites.

Stayed at the Econolodge over the Memorial day weekend to hang out in Ashland and Talent with Family. Don't expect too much as some have said on this site. We have stayed in many motels in Ashland and this one is ok.
- Clean room and comfortable bed.
- Very nice staff.
- Internet worked well
- Bathroom is very small. If you are a large person you may not be able to close the door, not kidding here. Shower water flow was very subpar. A lady with a lot of hair would be challenged to rinse her hair.
- Breakfast was ok. Only one waffle iron caused a >10min wait on Sunday (my wife was a bit pissed). Other items are pretty minimal.
I would stay here again because my daughter lives in Talent 2 miles away and the room was ok priced.

Room Tip: Ask to stay on the back side, I did.

Clean and comfortable. No frills, but everything you really need. And very, very reasonable.

It pains me to write this review knowing that once the rest of the world finds out about this lovely little hotel, it will always be full. This is my favorite cheap hotel on the planet and they deserve all the praise they get.

My friends and I having been coming to Ashland for the Shakespeare Festival for around 15 years. During that time we've stayed at many of the local hotels which can run $150+ per night. Yes, they are more elegant or have a snazzy name, but since finding this Econo Lodge I've never looked back.

Large, clean rooms with fresh sheets. Friendly employees that go out of their way for you. A parking lot with pull through spots for trucks with trailers, fresh breakfast, dog-friendly, non-smoking. They also happened to be a short jog away from one of the finest running trails in Ashland. You won't find anything better anywhere for $50 per night.

TIP: Joint the Choice Rewards program and look for their triple bonus specials to earn yourself a free room fast.

TIP #2: Use your free room in the summer when rates are highest.
