“Fine, but noisy and very sparse breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

We stayed here for one night on a drive up the West Coast. The rooms, staff, and location are perfectly pleasant. However, if your room is located near the office, banging noises from the service area can last into the night. Also, the continental breakfast was very sparse, just coffee and some underripe bananas.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

We stayed here on our west coast road trip. For the price, and our last minute booking, we expected an above average room. But our room was surprisingly good! The room looked recently updated and had good carpeting and linens. Clean looking and smelling too. I've stayed at best westerns that weren't as good as this. King bed was really comfortable. Fairly big refrigerator.
Minus one star for false advertising on Expedia. If you say you offer free breakfast, you'd better offer more than coffee, muffins and random fruits. Not cool. Luckily there was a Safeway close by, we picked up some cereal and milk. Ashland downtown is about 2-2.5 miles away.
Be aware that the walls are pretty thin. We didn't have next door neighbors but we could hear the people on tip walking around. Also, the motel is located in front of a shopping complex which is convenient, but we could hear every truck that was in the parking lot. On busy delivery days, we can imagine how it can be inconvenient. The lower rooms are below ground level at the back too, so you feel the vibrations.
all in all, great value for the money.

Room Tip: rooms at the top may be quieter, since you wont hear footsteps from above.

I visit Ashland to see family most years at Thanksgiving, and would much rather pay for a budget hotel than stay on a couch. This is my second cheap motel and probably the best service that I've ever had at a motel. The front desk guy, who was there every time we went to the front office, was very nice and helpful. The continental breakfast was small, but exactly what I needed to start the day (bananas, juice, and english muffins). Coffee and tea was available in the reception area as well.

The room was clean, lots of towels, and fairly new looking furniture. There was a table with two chairs in the room, which is perfect for laptops or board games. Large mini-fridge, microwave, and flat screen TV were all nice amities. If it's not freezing cold out, it is a nice walk to the downtown area or around the SOU campus.

On the bad side, the wireless internet was slow, and we had some crazy loud neighbors. However, it's a budget motel, so I can't really expect perfection.

If you want a really clean, basic (wifi, microwave, bar fridge) room, this is good value. We paid $52 for 2 and had real orange juice, a banana and English muffin to start the day. Some traffic noise and normal motel sounds but we slept fine. We really enjoyed the 1 1/2 mile walk downtown and back and had a nice dinner in Ashland. Was perfect for a night on the road.

When we 1st arrived the employee was super friendly, this was a Wednesday evening so we paid for 1 night, later in the evening we decided to stay again so hubby went up & paid By Thursday evening decided to pay for 1 more night hubby went up and paid by CC to the manager. So Friday we go zip lining early arrive back and Manager was standing on curb staring at us and says in a very rude tone "Did you know c/out was at 11am? Well of course we knew I said but he came up last night and paid you, he stood there and argued w/us denying any wrong doing and then saying see I'll show you all the receipts, we didn't see it but we knew we paId. He was scamming us. So hubby went to a secure sight and brought up all 3 charges & went to office to show manager & oh the guy says he's off duty. Longer story short I insisted he call the manager back and finally they relented, and finally he refunded the extra 100bucks to our account. I just feel he could have & should have handled it in a much nicer more polite way!!! So the bathroom is small, bed was very comfy, very small room w/2 beds. AC worked Ok bad location for unit. There continental breakfast is a huge joke!!

They rated the Pizza next door as excellent, we thought it was terrible not much flavor!

I most deff will not be back, parking is very limited & small. Who wants to deal w/a unsavory manager while on Vacation not me!! He offered no discounts for all our troubles, Just oops!!

Looking for something small and independent, we read the TripAdvisor reviews and decided on Timbers Motel for our night in Ashland.

There was a line of folks checking in - mostly our age or older (50+) - and the manager took his time with everyone, answering questions and being thorough with the process. We checked in and got to our room, right off the small parking area (convenient for unloading our gear).

The room appears to have been recently updated - matelesse comforters, newly tiled sink area and toilet area. It seemed clean and well-kept, and there was a small fridge and microwave, plus free Wi-Fi, which we appreciate.

We walked to downtown, which was almost 2 miles. It was a pleasant walk, past SOU and many houses, both interesting and lovely. We saw lots of folks out and about, walking and riding their bikes - there were plenty of safe crosswalks to use. If walking is not something you're up for, you may not want to consider Timber Motel, unless you want to drive and deal with the parking. We were totally comfortable with our accommodations, the location and the price. We would consider Timber Motel for an Ashland do-again.
