We've never been disappointed. Older rooms are a bit small, but adequate. Newer rooms, while more spacious, some face Main St and can have traffic noise if you like to leave the window open at night. Staff couldn't be more accommodating.

Dear Guest, I'm so happy that you have never been disappointed with your stays at our property! Our standard-sized rooms in the main building are a bit smaller than our deluxe rooms in our separate buildings. Our property does span an intersection, but if you talk to the front desk staff about a quiet room, we'll all do our best... More

The Bard's Inn was very close to what my mother and I wanted to do. It was within walking distance to the theatre and when I chose to go out and look at the shops along Siskiyou Blvd. they were all extremely easy to get too.

This is a great hotel with super staff. I typically stay at another chain hotel but I am going to consider staying at another Best Western after staying at this one.

I've stayed in many Best Westerns. This one was hands down the best one of all. Everything simply worked. Check in and check out was very friendly and efficient.

Great hotel within walking distance of downtown Ashland and the theatres. We love the fact that we can park our car at the hotel and walk to shopping, resturants, plays, without having to worry about parking and such.

The Bard's Inn has a great atmosphere. The room was very well appointed. The free, full breakfast had varied items and was tasty. The building and grounds are very attractive and convenient to the Shakespeare Fesival.

Best part was the location. Downtown Ashland ...Very near the theaters, Litha Park, shops, resturants and a good brew pub close by. Recently made a trip to eastern Europe...when ask what it was like I reply...Ashland in the spring.
