“Like a European Boutique Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2011

After many years of staying at B&B's in the Shakespeare theater town of Ashland OR, we decided to stay at the Ashland Springs this trip. The hotel reminded us of the kind of boutique hotel we like to stay in when traveling abroad. The decor is elegant yet comfortable, and the rooms are well appointed and quiet. Though not as big as what one gets at a B&B, the breakfast buffet (included in the price of the room) was more than adequate. But what we really appreciated was the customer service....everyone was very friendly and helpful. We're so glad that the Ashland Springs, previously named the Mark Antony, was saved from the wrecking ball. This historic hotel a a real jewel.

It was my wife's birthday and things were going down hill fast. We arrived in Ashland with no reservations and things were looking pricey. The Ashland Springs had a reduced rate - they must not have been busy, so we got the reservation on their site at the last minute. The folks at the front desk were very helpful with suggestions of places to eat. The room was super clean and bright. It was small (but it's an old hotel). My wife loved it - so I was happy. Breakfast was great for an included breakfast.

Room Tip: 6th floor corner view King was great - small, but the bathroom was very bright great views, quiet.

Very nicely updated and maintained old hotel in the heart of Ashland. Perfect for walking to everything you want to do and see. It is just a block from the Shakespeare festival theaters. The Larks restaurant in the hotel is very good. Perfect for not using your car once you arrive. The only downside is the rooms are very small, and the bathrooms are tiny, smallest shower I've ever used in a higher end a hotel, which is due to the age of the building. With that expectation, I'd highly recommend staying here.

Stayed 3 nights in a corner room overlooking the surrounding hills and lovely town. It was like waking up to a painting! Lovely sitting area. Deep soaking tub in a bath filled with natural light. Wonderful beds and pillows. Delicious dinner at Larks before the theatre. Enjoyed tea in afternoon in lobby. Completely memorable.

Four nights to visit OSF and stay here. The 08 series of rooms are reasonably sized, and some of the ones facing the street that we peeked into were also. Our bed was wonderfully comfortable and the decor of old postcard scenes and Audubon-esque prints charmed. We were particularly happy with the front desk staff who were young, friendly, and willing to do just about anything we needed.

Breakfast pastries were all freshly baked, and in some cases, still warm; also oatmeal and boiled eggs were available. I will say this is the only place we've found in the coffee-crazed Pacific Northwest where the coffee was weak. Lark restaurant was more casual than I'd expected from the website, and again a good-natured young staff. (Also marionberry lemonade...yum.) A local car service is more reasonable than taxis, but it's easy walking to the festival grounds, even the tent where this summer's offerings from the New Theater have been moved after a beam cracked. And we had no problems with wi-fi.

No, this isn't the Ritz, but it's indulgent and comfortable and worthwhile.

We picked this hotel for its location and because it is an historic hotel. The lobby is beautifully restored and the restaurant served excellent food. I especially enjoyed the maple-glazed pork chop. A buffet breakfast was included and we enjoyed eating ours in the garden. Our room was pleasantly decorated, but it was quite small for a "deluxe" room. Since we only were here one night this was not a problem, but it would be a bit cramped if one were staying several nights and wanted room to relax a bit.

We stayed at the Ashland Springs Hotel over a long weekend when we were seeing shows at the wonderful Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

The Hotel is the most prominent building in town. It was built in the 1920s and was lovingly renovated about 10 years ago. The rooms are warmly decorated and comfortable. The lobby area is grand. Unlike some hotels from the area, everything is very well lit, sunny, and bright.

If you have a little time, even if you are not staying. spend a few minutes looking around the lobby. They have some turn of the century cases from some sort of natural history exhibit with colorful birds, eggs, and other natural history pieces. One of my favorite was some sort of device that was used to detect magic.

We learned of the hotel after eating at the very nice Larks restaurant next to it. The "lark" theme carries into the lobby with all sorts of bird decorations, including lamps with a large talon as the stand.

The wi-fi was fast.

This is a memorable and pleasing place to stay.

Room Tip: Check out the museum-type cases in the lobby for all sorts of cool natural history stuff
