The Bard's Inn claims to be a 6 minute walk from downtown Ashland and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. It's true! You have to walk fast to make it in 6 minutes, but just a good pace will get you to OSF and all the rest in 10 minutes. Rooms are clean and pleasant, everything works well, staff is friendly and...

We chose this best Western based on this location and petfriendliness. Quite happy with our selection. We are in one of the older rooms but they are pet friendly. Nicely remodeled with the refrigerator. Great air-conditioning. A decent breakfast is included in the rate. Parking is right in front of your room. If you're attending a Shakespeare Festival event it... More

This was a nice best western. The check in and out was efficient. Room was clean and nice decor. Centrally located near downtown Ashland was one of the main reasons I chose it. Breakfast was basic, plentiful but nothing out of the ordinary. The garbage truck that woke us at 5 am our first morning there was the only reason... More

The Bards Inn in Ashland Oregon is a terrific place from which to venture out in Ashland. Within easy walking distance to many shops, restaurants, and bistro/taverns, and wine shops/tasting; walking distance to the beautiful Lithia Park, full of nature and history, this location allows the exploration Ashland's treasures. Oregon Shakespeare Festival is located here as well although we didn't... More

Really strong front dedk service. Room met all our needs. Walking distance to dinner was perfect, darts and art walk along water. Breakfast offerings were superior. The ambiance was quite Shakespearean. Nice sausage! Great place to stay.

My mom and I stay here every year when we visit the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. It is a wonderful place to stay. It is a very short walk to the downtown area and the OSF theaters. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. We will definitely be back next year.

If you are coming to Ashland to experience the Shakespeare Festival, this is a convenient and comfortable choice to stay. It's less than a 5 minute walk to the theaters and to the main part of town for shopping and dining. Will definitely stay here again for future trips to the OSF.

Overall this hotel was OK. The beds were very comfortable and the area was quiet. It is close to restaurants and shopping so is a convenient location. But they need to clean the carpeting, add a DVD player and raise TV volume to a better level as it was very difficult to hear.
