“Excellent Location”

The Bard is an excellent choice for "Theater Goers" in Ashland, Oregon. It is a very short walk past lovely shops, restaurants and a small bridge over the river. A great resource when planning your trip to Ashland.

The Bard's Inn is more expensive than the other Best Western in Ashland, but it's all about the location. You can walk to everything so it's definitely worth it. The beds were comfortable and the room was fairly large. As others have mentioned, the breakfast offered lots of choices, both hot and cold. I'd recommend the Bard's Inn to anyone who wants an above-average Best Western in a great location. We were upstairs and found it to be very quiet.

Room Tip: As with most older motels that have been refurbished, ask for an upstairs room if you are concerned...

The room was attractively decorated and the location was excellent, but there was noise from the room above the whole night which made our stay less than perfect. Air conditioning had to be turned off at some point in the evening.

Dear Betty P.,

I am so pleased that you liked our reciently renovated rooms. I am sorry that the guests above you were making excessive noise during your stay. That can be a very frustrating experience and I am sorry about that. We will have to get you on a top floor for your next stay.

Take Care,

I stayed at this hotel for two days. It is centrally located in Ashland within walking distance of the Shakespeare Theatre. On the first night there I walked over to the Theatre to see a Shakespeare play. The room was very nice and quiet. The free breakfast was very good. The hotel is also about 90 miles from Crater Lake which I visited, too.

Dear Guest,

I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us while visiting Ashland. I agree that we have a perfect location for those who want to enjoy all of the local attractions in the downtown area. It can be a little stressful during the summertime months to find parking in the downtown area. I am very happy that you had a fun time while visiting Ashland and the surrounding Southern Oregon areas.

We will see you soon!

We stay every year at the Best Western Bard's Inn in Ashland, OR when we attend plays for the Shakespeare Festival. The Bard's Inn is located walking distance to the plays as well as main streets of the community. The Inn always is clean, helpful staff, top-of-the-line breakfasts and reasonable rates for the season.

Great location, very close to Shakespeare plays, Lithia park, and great restaurants. Bed was a little too firm, but otherwise everything was great. They have the best "Continental" breakfast we have every had, with sausages, mini quiches, yogurt, bagels & cream cheese, pancakes, and lots more. The pool is small, but well heated, and the hot tub was actually hot! The in-room internet worked well, and was reasonably fast.

Dear Jennifer K,

Thanks for your review. I agree that our location is one of the best. There is no need to drive anywhere once you have arrived at the Bard's Inn. I'm sorry you didn't like your room location during your last stay. We will have to book you into one of our 3 alternative buildings. The smoke has finally cleared from the local fires and Ashland is back to its' beautiful self.

See you next time,
Ally T.

Very nice motel to stay at when attending the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. The motel is within walking distance of theaters, shops, and restaurants. Great hot breakfast included with the room. Rooms were comfortable and quiet even though the motel is located on the main street. Another nice feature is the fact that it is a pet friendly motel. I did see dogs of all sizes, but did not hear any barking, so that was not an issue.
