If you're heading to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, this Best Western adheres to the most important business advice ever: location, location, location. Three blocks away from the OSF with a walk past Ashland Creek and great little restaurants should make this a true gem. Beautifully styled with lots of Shakespearean art and decor made this place seem to be the perfect place.
But it is not. The front desk personnel were wonderful but the keys didn't work. There are three separate buildings so we had to keep running back and forth to the main building. Plus, every time you want to use the stairs or elevator, you have to use your key. Rooms are very small and, for a family of four, we were very cramped, plus the fact that they have three very large and decorative pillows on each bed...were do you put those when you want to lay down? The bedspreads are beautiful and augment the style of the room, but the material they are made of is slippery (??) and kept sliding off the bed all night. I get up early but my family does not...and at 8:10 a.m., the spray-blasting began outside our window!! You would have thought that we should have been forewarned. Previous reviews had stated that a great breakfast was offered but it was way over-rated: gross little quiches, hard pancakes from a very bizarre machine and no doughnuts or danish. Checkout was supposed to be at 11:00 but when we went back to our room at 10:15 the maid was already working in there!!
This hotel is the epitome of the triumph of style over substance, location over common sense.
