Recently I came to Ashland to enjoy the Shakespeare Festival, and was attracted by the good reviews, and the availability of a shuttle to the performances. The hotel is a motor-inn style, with two stories, located a few miles south of the center of Ashland, near an exit to the Interstate, I-5. All the rooms have outside corridors. The shuttle is particularly practical - as they will shuttle you to and from the afternoon or the evening performances, although the shuttle does not run in the mornings when one might want to take the backstage tour. Parking in downtown Ashland is really a bother - so unless one can walk to the theaters or get a shuttle ride - then one will spend a portions of one stay looking for parking spaces. The only particular disadvantage to this motel is that there is not so much within walking distance of the motel. There is a decent diner right next to the hotel - which had good service and decent food. The breakfast was very basic - and actually not terribly appetizing. The wireless internet worked adequately - and there were no issues making and maintaining a connection. The staff was very helpful and friendly and they certainly helped to make the stay in Ashland and at the Shakespeare Festival very enjoyable.
Advice: This has nothing to do with the motel -- but think carefully about visiting in mid-late summer when there might be forest fires in Southern Oregon. In 2013, apparently smoke from forest fires blanketed the town in early-mid August 2013 - and that made any outdoor activities - including the outdoor theater performances at the Festival untenable and unbearable. At any other time, I would unreservedly recommend this motel.
