“Excellent on what matters”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014

Very comfortable beds, good quality linens, clean and well maintained everywhere--rooms grounds, buildings. Room was generous size and everything worked, especially the HVAC which was reasonably quiet, easy too use and very precise. Very helpful staff. Breakfast was mediocre, but that may not matter to many people because Ashland is a town so full of very good and reasonably policed restaurants that "making the rounds" is often part of the "Ashland experience." (Ashland is a destination town as well as a freeway stop). Breakfast room is a separate building from all rooms, so a short outdoor walk is required. Also, there are several (3?) room buildings that crossing a street to get to the breakfast room and lobby may be required. Very convenient location to the theaters.

One of the Bard's Inn main attractions is its proximity to the Shakespearean Festival and the restaurants in downtown Ashland. It is generally reliable and consistent, as are most of the Best Western properties. Our recent stay was okay except for the breakfast offerings, no whole oatmeal (not instant), no hard boiled eggs, very little for vegetarians. The coffee was virtually undrinkable it was so weak.

We routinely stay here one night on our way to Sacramento, CA, to visit my sibling. Convenient, clean, well kept, great breakfast, and quiet rooms. Room amenities are above standard for this type motel

The room was very clean. Amenities were better than most expensive chains. Bed was super comfy. Fridge in the room! Free internet (didn't have to pay $9.95/24hrs like at the expensive chains). And the free breakfast was a delicious mix of hot & cold foods. I was really impressed, as I'm used to the boring cold continental breakfasts when it's free. I highly recommend this hotel.

A clean, quiet, well furnished facility with adequate parking and an extremely efficient and helpful staff. The location is just three short blocks walking distance from downtown, the theaters and restaurants. In short, "Its a great place to stay!"

We frequent this BW Bard's Inn once every year for a special occasion. We love the service we get and our room/s have always been exceptional. This year even more so...they have done some redecorating and it is beautiful. The Bard's Inn is so close to shopping, the theatre and all the wonderful restaurants Ashland has to offer. Everything is within walking distance which makes it handy. The breakfast they serve has quite the variety of items. Something for everyone. We highly recommend Bard's.

Just chaperoned a group of high school students to the Shakespeare Festival and so enjoyed our stay at the Bard's Inn. The location is perfectly situated just a block from town. The rooms are comfortable, the staff very pleasant, and the price is right. I would stay there again if I returned to Ashland.
