“Goofy but good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

When my party of three checked in at the Green Springs Inn (17 miles East of Ashland, Oregon) it was as if we were the first people to ever register at the hotel. Maybe they'd had a reorganization that very morning, I don't know. One woman staffer, in the midst of the check-in frenzy involving several people passing and repassing papers, took a look at my file and pronounced loudly and sarcastically, "OOOH! MENLO PARK!" in tones I might have expected if we were checking in from, say, Monte Carlo or Timbuktoo. Menlo Park normally arouses little in the way of awe.

Predictably, I guess, in the wake of all this confusion, there were no rooms available at the inn, even though we had confirmed our stay about two weeks before arriving. But not to worry. The issue was immediately handled by switching us to the rental cabin section of the resort--separately owned houses located near Hyatt Lake, about 4 miles from the Inn and its attendant restaurant. We weren't that pleased with the news, but with no alternative we drove the 4 miles and found, to our surprise, a cool little collection of pre-fab cabins on the shores of a lake/reservoir. We were, admittedly, the only people within miles and our cabin was the only one occupied, but it was cute and fresh and clean with a working TV and jacuzzi on the deck, plenty of room and comfortable. Even had good towels and extra pillows.

Our cabin was perfect for the three of us--parents downstairs, daughter up in a spacious loft. We returned to base camp for dinner and it was excellent and we even got to know the wait staff a little. Bonus: if you're into photography, the lake at dawn is a can't miss target. You have to get up early, but it's worth it. I get the sense that the cabin area is somebody's dream project that hasn't quite paid off yet, but it has a lot of potential and more than substitutes for a room at the main lodge.

We booked a single last-minute night for a stop in ashland after our cost trip. It was only 110$(including tax) for the room, what an awesome deal. The room was very clean and was furnished beautifully, The bed was incredibly comfortable and the towels were super soft. The extra plus was that our room (L3) had a special private deck with a dining setup and a jet tub that easily and comfortably fit the both of us.

On top of the amazing room the service and food at the lodge was very good. The people there responded promptly and politely to us arriving, and happily offered to let us just take our plates of food and silverware to our room when we asked for our food to go, this resulted with a very romantic private dinner on our private deck.

Cons:
The drive is on a very twisty road that may be a bit dangerous in the winter.
Our door was very squeaky.
Their shower gel and shampoo(2in1, no conditioner) wasn't the best so I suggest bringing your own.
No TV, luckily I had my laptop and HBO-go.

Pros:
Awesome deal.
Comfortable room with romantic and visually appealing decor.
Romantic spa-tub on private deck.
Mini fridge and microwave included in room.
Free Wifi.
Helpful and friendly staff.
Very good dinner, breakfast and pie!

Room Tip: Not all rooms have a private deck, if you want the room we had with the tub and the deck, ask specif...

My wife and I were fortunate enough to get the last available room at the Green Springs Inn during a recent trip to Ashland for the Shakespeare Festival. I booked the room (hence last-minute) during a search for a wilderness-type lodge in the Ashland area. We were more than pleasantly surprised when we got there. The restaurant has excellent food with a varied menu to please just about anyone. There's lots of great hiking nearby (within 5 minutes drive time) and a couple of reservoirs that are perfect for bird watching. The room (#1) was as clean as any 5-star room we've ever been in and had everything we could have wanted in a hotel room (fridge, microwave, coffee maker and a jacuzzi). The staff were engaging and fun. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and not completely facetiously offered to buy the place. Only minor drawback was the 9AM breakfast time at the restaurant- a little late for anyone wanting to get on the trails early. However, when asked, they said they would be happy to prepare a breakfast the night before for us to heat in our room prior to headng out. Excellent.

I like Ashland. But I recommend the relatively short drive to the Green Springs Inn. Just think how great it would be to stay in a nice cabin in the middle of a forest! I've already stayed in the Ashland city motels and I think they are just fine. If you want your stay to be "just fine" go ahead and motel it. Actually we liked the Green Springs Inn experience so much that we may make our next Ashland trip sooner than expected just because of these accomodations.

Room Tip: Time your trip to get the best daily rates.

What a jewel this was for us!
We stayed at the lodge in room 5. Excellent choice for us. The decor was nice and really enjoyed the fireplace ambiance.
The owner Durmuit(sp) was great! we really enjoyed his info and how personable he was.

Looks like a diner only NOT! The food was so good. Some things I would tweak here and there but overall really good.
Tues night we had dinner and music. Teri and Shane played and it was wonderful! One of the best nights we have had in years music wise:>))

We snowshoe and it is definitely our best trip ever!
Near by you have the Pacific Crest Trail with a great 3.7 mi loop that is breathtaking!

All and all a new great find!

The Pilot Rock cabin sleeps six, but those six need to get along very well, because you will be sharing three beds, two of which are in a loft space. This was fine for our group, and the loft is spacious and airy.

The cabins are fairly new, as is the furniture, the coffee pot, the little dishwasher -- it was all clean and in good repair. There is nearly as much deck space as interior space, and there are walls of windows with fantastic views of the mountains. There is a hot tub at this cabin, but it wasn't filled when we arrived. No matter -- none of us had bathing suits anyway. We were able to cook all our meals here, and all dishes and linens were provided. The dining table expanded from four places to six, and we had plenty of room to eat, drink, and work. There's free wi-fi if you must check email, but cell signals are spotty at best this far up the mountain.

The bathroom is very spacious and the shower is easily ADA compliant, though the tall ladder to the loft is not. The bedroom on the first floor would be, though.

We were at full capacity with kiddos running around and were still able to have a wonderfully relaxing time! The kids loved the loft while the adults loved the view :) The outdoor jacuzzi tub was great! Nothing beats a good soak under the stars. Oh, we stayed in Pilot Rock which was perfect for our larger group.
