We found the Columbia Hotel to be fantastic. I received extremely helpful and informative emails prior to our arrival. The location is perfect (right on Main St. and near the festival theaters). The hotel is charming inside and out (our room had a big private bath and a sunny, airy feel). We very much liked the charming little lobby. And,... More

As we strolled past the Columbia Hotel, it looked interesting but we thought it would be too expensive since it was right on the main street in such a great location. There was a large flight of stairs to get to the hotel too so we moved on. Once at our car, I called them mostly out of interest. We... More

My companion and I very much enjoyed this hotel. We stayed in room 5 which has a bathroom attached although the shared showers and bathrooms did not seem to be inconvenient to others I spoke to. The hotel is just a couple of blocks from the Shakespeare Festival theaters and that's a boon. The hotel staff were very friendly and... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Columbia Hotel. The room was comfortable and airy. There is a lovely lobby to relax in, too. The location is very convenient. Their parking lot is small, but we had no problem finding street parking nearby. I am already planning my next visit there!

We needed lodging in Ashland for one night a couple of weeks ago and everything was booked solid with the graduations in town. We found The Columbia Hotel right on Main Street available at a great rate but.... the only room available was with a shared bathroom. This is a Historic Hotel which we love, so we booked. Upon arrival... More

This is the place!!! Location, friendly staff, clean rooms and bathrooms, tea and coffee in the comfortable lobby. Hot day? No problem there are fans in the windows and a powerful fan on the ceiling. You will be delighted if you stay here....but if I want a room "there better be room for me too". Cheers, Ann from Portland!

We have previously enjoyed staying at this charming, eccentric hotel; however, when a family emergency caused us to have to cancel our recent trip, the staff was not only unwilling to work out a reasonable compromise to their costly cancellation policy, but they never even bothered to contact us as they had promised to tell us about it. Any other... More

My daughter and I spent one night in Ashland on a road trip. We had always wanted to see a play. We spent one night at the Columbia. We were charmed from the moment we saw the sign for the Hotel on the road. The staff is excellent, courteous, sweet, and helpful. The room was clean and inviting. The hotel... More

Just back from the Shakespeare Festival in Ashland which includes my yearly stay at The Columbia Hotel. It continues to be the best place to stay in town, congruent with the charm of Ashland, itself. I've camped at several other places over theyears and this is my number one choice. Incidently, look into Shawns Ride Share for transportation between the... More
