Spent this past weekend in Ashland to get a big dose of autumn leaves. The Bard's Inn was the perfect location. So easy to walk to downtown shops and restaurants and especially gorgeous Lithia Park. Our deluxe room with two double beds was spotless and a good, comfortable size for two friends. I always appreciate the vanity sink outside of... More

Near the theatres, safe, clean. Continental breakfast was something to skip. Desk clerks were friendly and helpful. Parking was a problem each evening. It would not be my first choice on my next visit.

I like a quiet, clean small room (with a king-sized bed) for a week each year in Ashland, Oregon, to attend the Oregon Shakespearean Festival. The Bard's Inn is one block away from the three theatres I attend, but it is off the main road enough so the traffic noises don't penetrate the room walls! The people staffing the desk... More

The Bards Inn in Ashland Or. is very successful. The primary reason is it's proximity to the Shakespeare theaters. There are actually four sites on the property...which we wished we'd known. We were there for 4 nights, in a room in the main building I thought of as 'the prison'. It was the smallest room I've ever stayed in- ever.... More

We've been staying at the BW Bard's Inn at least once per year. It is conveniently located in Ashland's theater area. It's an easy walk to the Sheakespeare Theaters. It's location also allows easy access to many fine restaurants and retail store.

I found my stay at this Best Western was rewarding. I was able to connect with their internet keeping in touch with my emails. The room was comfortable and well cared for by the hotel staff. The only objection was having to eat at Denny's restaurant and on a fixed choice of food items. In the past I always got... More

The Best Western Bard is in a great location in Ashland. That's where the pluses end. Old, SMALL rooms with few amenities and (for us) a very unhelpful staff. Wish I'd traveled a bit further and stayed in another place. The rooms aren't the only thing small - so is the selection for breakfast. Nice room - decent staff -... More

We stay at the Bard's Inn every year when we visit Ashland Oregon for the Shakespeare Festival. We have seen it when it's very, very good, and when it's very very bad. When you have been coming for 30 years, we've seen both!

Pleasant, good access to local points of interest. Problem with the air conditioning unit in the room - decor rather bland and dark. Adequate breakfast with nice variety. Good privacy. Quiet atmosphere around the suites. Could have used a guide to get there the first time, as it is across the street from the check in office
