I have not had a bad experience yet at this property and have stayed 24 nights in the past 3 months. The 2 issues I had with the TV remote ( dead batteries) and heating system ( A quick "how to" training from the dest clerk) were resolved immediately. The rooms are spotless, the beds are fantastic, lots of nice... More

First, the good. We called on the way south with our new puppy. Bards was very accommodating. We were told we could choose from the nicer new rooms, or the older standard ones. We chose the standard. The room was a little small, but the bed was terrific, the room was very clean, all was well. They gave us a... More

On our way back from a disappointing stay at the Renaissance Palm Springs, we stopped for the night at the Bard's Inn. The staff was great, the room was great (our teenage son's first comment was: 'This is just as nice as the Renaissance'), and the complementary breakfast was great. I would unhesitatingly recommend this motel to anyone staying in... More

BW Bard's Inn in Ashland is well worth the diversion from Interstate 5,as we travelled from the cold North to the warm climes of Palm Springs. We received not only good value but pleasant service. Our Platinum card was quickly recognized and a gift was immediately produced, which does not always happen. We felt very welcome. A totally enjoyable stopover.

Bard's Inn was comfortable, clean, up-to-date yet "Shakespearian" in ambiance. Very close to many great eating places and entertainment. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Price was a good value. We would happily return!

You will be glad of your choice of hotels to stay in Ashland, if you choose the Bards Inn. The whole experience was perfect! Great staff. The location of this property to the downtown Ashland Plaza is a short 2 block walk. The views of Mt Ashland from the hotel front door, seems as if you can reach out and... More

December is off-season in Ashland since the Shakespeare theaters are closed and rooms are priced accordingly. The Bard is at N end of downtown and is a great location for walking to the many restaurants, a movie, Standing Stone brewpub, coffee. Many stores are decorated with outside holiday lights and there are lots of cute stores for shopping. The hot... More

Dear Guest, December is the off-season in Ashland, but not many people know that Ashland lights up from Thanksgiving until a ways into January! It is our quiet time of year since it is one of the few months in which the Oregon Shakespeare Festival is closed, but all of the great restaurants and shops are still open, as well... More

We were driving up from Sacramento, on our way back home to Portland and decided to break up the trip with a stop over in Ashland. We chose Best Western Bard's Inn due to it being pet friendly. The staff was friendly, the check in process was painless and the rooms were clean. Breakfast has many options and the amenities... More

Bard's Inn is a comfortable, clean motel that is located about two blocks from the Shakespeare theaters. The rooms were nice and the staff was very helpful. The food for the continental breakfast was cooked in small batches so it was still hot and the selections were about average. Highly recommended.

Stayed here two years ago to see a Shakespeare play and loved it. Returned last night during a trip to Portland and found everything just as great as the first time. The setting is beautiful and we even saw a young Buck making his way along the creek behind our room! The Bard's Inn is real winner!

Dear Guest, I am thrilled that you loved our property so much that you chose to stay with us again on your next trip through town! It sounds like you got to see one of the many deer that come down off the hills and walk through the downtown. We've even seen them using the crosswalks by the hotel before!... More
