We stayed for the first time at the Plaza Inn and Suites last week for our 10 year wedding anniversary. We are on a VERY limited budget and were able to get a king spa room for $107/night AAA rate. We stayed two nights and really enjoyed ourselves.
The jacuzzi is big enough for two (with one of us being plus sized, we still fit with room to spare) and the bed was (not the most comfortable I have ever slept on, but) fine. There was a separate sitting area, which we didn't use, preferring to watch tv in bed. We were kind of on the corner of the building, so we had two windows, and a pleasant view of the creek (which you can also hear when you open the window). There was a small kitchen area with sink, microwave, coffee, and fridge. This was nice to have drinks in the fridge and someplace to put our leftovers from dinner.
Breakfast was included - not elegant, but they tell you it's an "expanded continental" right up front, so no surprises. Usual bagels, toast, waffle maker, and cheese "omelettes" which are made in the back and kept warm out front. Coffee, tea, juice, milk, cereal and yogurt. We didn't get a chance to do the PB&J sandwiches, because we were otherwise engaged at 10pm.
The lobby is nicely appointed and would be a good place to wait for someone, look at their books with restaurant menus, plan your day, or check your email on the hotel's computer. The fitness room downstairs has new cardio equipment and a tv. There is also a table with a puzzle downstairs if you are so inclined. Walking distance to shopping and shows and Lithia Park.
Rooms were quiet - didn't hear neighbors or other tv's, etc. Loved the pillow menu, although we didn't use it.
Staff was friendly and attentive and recommended dinner options.
We had two "maintenance" issues while we were there. The first was the tv in the bed area was adjusted so the color was really "hot" - the red was turned up all the way so it hurt your eyes when you looked at it. The did try to resolve the problem, but the person with the "master" remote was in Medford, and wouldn't be back until the next day. So they were going to swap tv's for us. But the one in the bedroom is BOLTED to the dresser. So they were going to swap out a whole dresser and tv unit from another room. We just said to go ahead and move the one from the armoir in the sitting area to the bedroom. So we had two tv's in our bed area. And the volume was set at 11 on the tv. So low you could barely hear it. So we moved our little tv into the bed area also and ran the audio through the little tv. But they were really trying to be accomodating - it was just strange.
Also, wifi is included in every room, but we had a really low and erratic signal. They came to check it for us, and their laptop worked fine, they said. BUT I know different people have different needs as far as the internet goes, and it would be fine for just checking your mail. If you need to download anything though, it will take forever.
OVERALL - loved it and would stay again. It was cheaper than many other places, we were comfortable, and loved the tub. It was nice to know you could have breakfast there and just get on with your day, and you didn't have to pay extra someplace else, and you can just walk to shopping so you don't have to worry about parking. . We will definitely visit again on our next trip to Ashland.
