This hotel is in a great location such that you never need touch your car during your stay. Everything is very close walking distance. I was a bit concerned about the shared bathroom situation - no problem. The place is immaculate! Even the little louvers in the air conditioner were without dust or grime. The beds are very comfortable and... More

We loved this hotel, and the town of Ashland! Hotel is right in the center of town, so you can walk to everything. Parking is scarce, but luckily there was a spot for us behind the hotel. I love that it feels like you're a guest in someone's home, instead of an impersonal hotel. To call our room a "courtyard"... More

Thank you for your review of the Columbia Hotel! We're glad you were able to take full advantage of our ideal location right in the center of downtown. You're correct, our parking lot has limited parking and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. However, I always recommend to guests that they momentarily double-park in our back lot, even if... More

A small treasure of a hotel in the midst of downtown Ashland. Found by accident and stayed one night; rebooked for three nights a month later. The manager, assistant manager and staff are wonderfully helpful and accommodating and each room is furnished with interesting antiques and carefully chosen color and decorative details and offers a slightly different mood. Service is... More

This hotel is a great location in Ashland, and it's a good value. A good amount of steps to get into it, so make sure you can do that. Otherwise, we stayed twice - once with a private bath, once without. Without wasn't as big a deal as we thought it would be. There's a sink in the room, and... More

Thank you for your wonderful review of the Columbia Hotel, Karen! Thank you for pointing out that our Grand Staircase does contain quite a few stairs. For guests who may not be familiar with the property, it is also good to note that we have a rear staircase leading up from the parking lot that contains far fewer stairs, and... More

Great fun place to stay. But you need to be okay with sharing a bathroom. Also the gorgeous rooms on the street come with lots of early morning traffic noise and sun. Convenient access to theater and shops. We have stayed here multiple times. The old world ambience enhances the entire Ashland experience

Thank you so much for your review of the Columbia Hotel! As you pointed out, the majority of our rooms have European-style shared baths, meaning that private showers and facilities are located just down the hall from most of our rooms -- however, we do have a variety of private bath rooms available, as well! We're so happy to hear... More

A beautiful historic hotel in the heart of Ashland. European style shared bathrooms (some have own bathroom). A different experience from the cookie cutter corporate places to stay, try something new, you won't be disappointed.

We always love returning to the Columbia. This time for the Film Festival. The rooms are well decorated, love the fresh flowers in the room, the downtown location is the best and the staff always helpful and kind. This is a very special hotel which feels like home and which we highly recommend on an Ashland visit.

When we arrived after a long 4 hour drive, the nice lady at the front desk just gave us our room keys, and said we could pay the rest of the balance later. I think we looked like we needed to rest a little. That was very kind of her. The accommodations were excellent. The beds were comfortable. We had... More

My sister and I stayed here 2 nights in early April, and our experience was good enough for me to plan a return trip with my husband. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms, in the back on the alley. No, it's not fancy; yes, you have to walk a few yards to the shared bathroom; but for the... More

The staff was helpful on my arrival when I had forgotten where they were located. She gave directions on the phone. Comfortable, but noise travels between hall and rooms, so not great for young children. Also, many stairs to keep in mind for those with accessibility issues. I love staying here on my own for a conference.
