This was our third trip to Ashland and the Columbia is the finest! The hotel is beautiful, quaint, quiet, comfortable and absolutely lovely. Tea, coffee, flowers, and the most helpful and kind staff made this an absolute delight. We felt like honored guests or family....deeply cared for. I highly recommend the Columbia, whether you are a family or a couple,... More

We could not more highly recommend the Columbia hotel in Ashland,OR. The room was clean, cozy and oh so quiet. No phones, no TV. Wonderful! The hotel ambiance is period elegant, plush and conducive to relaxation, reading and contemplation. The location in central downtown is within walking distance of the theaters,, outstanding shopping and indescribable eateries of every taste and... More

The Columbia Hotel is my first choice of a place to stay in Ashland. I've been going down to the Shakespeare festival for years and have stayed at various spots during that time. Once I found the Columbia, I don't stay anywhere else.

We have been staying at the Columbia for more than 20 years. It is always a pleasant and relaxing experience, the rooms are comfortable and quiet, the short distance to the theaters is very convenient in particular when it is raining. The addition of free WiFi and tea and coffee during the daytime are great features appreciated by the whole... More

I have stayed here a couple times and I really like it. The staff are all super friendly, the interior is beautiful, the location is ideal and it is even inexpensive to boot. You can't ask for anything more.

A "snowbird" friend and I, driving from Portland to Lake Havasu City, AZ, decided to spend our first night in Ashland and I suggested the Columbia, based on previous stays there and location. We were both charmed. We intentionally opted for a bathroom-less room, but recognize that this wouldn't work for everyone and that, as we were there after the... More

Step back in time - with great wifi connection. Who cares that there is no tv, immerse yourself in a little time travel, or open up your computer! An early December trip to Ashland, found us in the off season, and we were treated to an amazing holiday adventure. Arriving just after sunset, we found the front door in the... More

First off, Ashland is one of our favorite places to visit. I just wish it wasn't so expensive during the busy season, Shakespeare season. We've gone to a play before, but it's hard to believe that so many people are willing to pay the crazy high room rates. We enjoy the great food and shopping more than the plays, so... More

I loved this place. It's so quaint, and comfortable . .sooo Ashland! I had actually considered camping at Emmigrant Lake, (which I do often), but for November, my friend suggested we splurge and sleep indoors. Our room had two super comfortable queen beds, a huge closet, big window overlooking Main St., and a big over stuffed chair. We were down... More

This is not the hotel for everyone. No tv's not all rooms have private baths (they do have a sink). AND the location is great, the people lovely and there is a sense of community as people gather around the couches to talk. Think upscale hostel for adults. Great for groups of friends. I've been staying at the Columbia for... More
