“Very Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

What a shock when we drove in the driveway and saw the sad, tired old building - but what a wonderful surprise when the front desk told us we were booked in their much more modern building across the street! Now this was a "PLUS" experience. We were most comfortable in the spacious, bright, modern, quiet room with a view. AND thrilled that our 2 small dogs could accompany us - we weren't stuck in a dungey old "pet-friendly" hole. Close to great restaurants for dinner. Bravo. OH, and the next morning's (included) breakfast back at the old building was the best we have had at any breakfast-included hotel.

This hotel was over the top for my wife and I! Even though initially we thought the room was sort of small, it was very well maintained and very clean. The updates to the hotel are very recent and the location to downtown and the theatres is absolutely great, We had great WI FI connectivity within in our room and they even had two PC's in the lobby for guest use as well. The pillow top King size bed was the most comfortable one I have ever slept in at a Best Western. Adding the extended contInental breakfast they offered each morning made our stay the best ever. We will be returning to this hotel in the future.

Room Tip: Second floor room is always a good option for better WI FI reception

Service the Ashland Shakespeare scene as well as the supporting environs, this hotel is quiet (even on New Year's Eve), clean, and exactly what you want at the end of a day of driving.

We love staying here as it is so close to the theaters and there are plenty of restaurants across the street. The suites are definitely worth the extra money as they feel like a home base for when we stay. Only downside is the intermittent internet. I guess it runs fine in the main buildings but is constantly rebooting in the property across the main street.

The Bard's Inn is very well located for Ashland. It is just north of the square and the park and easy walking distance to the OSF theaters. It is close to the restaurants and other attractions and wineries. The breakfast was good and they have added more choices on the buffet. We will stay here again as we appreciate the closeness to the center of town.

Room Tip: Some rooms face the main street although it was not noisy where we stayed. If you are concerned abo...

My first time at Bard's Inn, and will be staying here in the future when coming to Asland. Staff very friendly. I asked for a upper level room and got one on the third floor overlooking towards downtown. The room was good sized and had plenty of chairs, even a window box seat. I hosted a small pre-dinner cocktail party and it was perfect. The ceiling even had cathedral ceiling, and there was a balcony too. So handy to walk to the plays or to the many great restaurants and shops nearby. The breafast was pretty good, the usual cereals and bread and pastries, but also some sausage and breakfast burritos.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with interiors hallways, some of the rooms just have a window/door facing the parking...
