There are several buildings scattered over adjoining blocks. Our room was just above the lobby. Tho the room was on the small side, the king bed was super comfortable, and even next to the main drag, it was very quiet. Staff were instantly attentive to any need. One block away from great food, bars, shops. Five minute walk to OSF. We will stay again.

We love The Bard Inn! It is a pleasant stroll to the Shakespeare Festival theaters, good restaurants, and the lovely Lithia Park. Staff is very accommodating. We have stayed there several times over the years, and each time, the quality of service seems to be improving.

This is our first visit to the Bards Inn but it won't be the last. Hotel is right in downtown but not noisy at all. The staff was welcoming and helpful, bed was comfortable, room and bathroom very clean. We enjoyed the breakfast both mornings we were there.
My only complaint was that the room was small, not enough places to put things. I mentioned this in my Best Western review and the manager said that next time I should just ask for a bigger room. And that's what I'll do! All around good experience.

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs room and try to get a large one. The staff will do all they can to help you.

We are staying in a newly refurbished room, which is very nice. Free wifi, mini fridge, quick walk to the shakespeare theaters. Would definitely stay here again.
They offer a free breakfast. Haven't tried it yet, and i have a lot of dietary restrictions so i don't know if we will take advantage of it.

Very helpful and friendly staff. We were upgraded to a King Deluxe room which had been recently remodeled with contemporary decor. Our room was clean and bed comfortable which is extremely important to my husband and I. Bard's Inn is located in the heart of Ashlland and within walking distance to the theatre and dining. Great value, will definitely return.

I vacillated between 3-4 stars and went with 3 due to the fact that our room had no desk, no microwave, electric outlets too far from bed and an inconvenient bathroom set up.


pros: cons:
location amenities avg
breakfast bathroom set up is inefficient with sink in other room?

Room Tip: new building was nice with no off-gassing

We are so grateful that we can find a hotel that is clean, quiet, proper pricing, and will take pets and doesn't stink of former pet guests. We stayed here in transit from Vancouver to San Francisco. We stayed in a small nicely appointed room near the main office. It was quiet and the sheets didn't smell of chlorine like so many do these days. The linens were fluffy and amenities adequate. We could walk down the slope into the town. We were there in the non-theater season so don't know how getting around would be but this is an ideal location for walking to the shops and theaters. The office staff was welcoming and everything seemed to say both "welcome" and "stay awhile". I don't know about street noise during the high tourist months but the parking lot was half full on a week night and everything was quiet. As a side note, sometimes our dog doesn't like staying in a hotel room and is pacing the floor all night hoping for morning and an exit but in the Bard's Inn we had quiet pets all night.

Room Tip: There is one section of the hotel across the street and one section of the hotel attached to the mai...
