“Very Average, Dated”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

Yes, it's Medford and "downtown" choices are slim, So, Inn at the Commons is likely as good as it gets. It's a dated motor inn, with 70's decor and colors. Nothing's terribly wrong with the place, it's rather drab and tired overall. My tv remote was broken (at least it was lcd, some rooms still have tube tv's!) so I had to manually turn it on. Yes, I could have called the front desk to have them deal with it but it didn't seem worth it. The bed was too soft for me but linens were fresh. The free breakfast buffet was a nice touch and the staff is friendly, overall. But I would never choose this place again--it was a little scuzzy.

If you have a car stay at the Fairfield Suites by the Fred Meyer, a far better value, overall. Downtown has little to offer anyway and Fairfield is clean and modern, a far cry from Inn at the Commons.

My wife is pregnant and had a question about the food she had eaten for dinner, I called at 2am in a panic and the staff was immensely kind and courteous. They immediately called down to their kitchen and tried to get as much info as they could. They then had a chef call is in the morning with more information. You felt like they really cared and every person we dealt with went the extra mile. Of course the building is old, location is central but not pretty. But to have such wonderful staff, it makes this place shine. We will be back!

With change of ownership came a new name. The property is being renewed, with many rooms already refurbished. Everything was clean, and the bed was super comfortable. My room was large and included an upholtered lounge chair and ottoman, plus a balcony overlooking the stream. I-5 passes the hotel on the other side of the stream, but elevated. I found traffic noise to be minimal and not intrusive. The hotel includes a very substantial breakfast buffet with the price of the room: scrambled eggs (NOT overcooked), bacon and sausage, potatoes, plus all the cereal, fruit juice, baked goods, coffee, and tea that you can manage.

Room Tip: There are several wings and some are at substantial remove from the I-5 side, if you are sensitive t...

The Red Lion was sold and now is owned by the Inn At The Commons. Red Lion signs were blocked out and a banner with the new name was up when I made a recent stop in Medford. Don't let the outside work stop you --- as the lobby and rooms are nicely appointed inside. My room backed up to the freeway, but was surprisingly quiet. Large bathroom and great water pressure for my shower. I attended a women's retreat and the sales staff was easy to work with and the meeting room was nice and the banquet was great. A very nice buffet breakfast that I was told cost $6.99 was FREE.

Room Tip: Riverside is a one-way street making it difficult to back track should you miss it.
