“Great Stop On A Road Trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We've been making quite a number of trips back and forth from CA to WA. We now make an over night stop in Ashland a requirement on this road trip. This time, however, the Best Western - Bard's Inn was fully booked so we had to compromise and stay at the Windsor Inn.

This was hardly a hardship! The Windsor Inn is really quite lovely! It's obviously a more family oriented hotel than the Bard's Inn - though why, I'm not sure. It could be that the pool seems more conducive to use being off the main road perhaps?

The hotel is very conveniently located just off I5 and Hwy 66, but doesn't feel like you're at the end of an off ramp. The room available last minute was a (sweet) suite - huge! It offered living room, kitchen, nice sized king bed bedroom and full bath. The unit was clean and quiet.

We love to do several short stops in town - Liquid Assets to pick a bottle of Pinot Noir (when in Rome!). Drink a couple of glasses over a plate of their most awesome olive medley then re-cork the bottle and pick up dinner to go: Sushi @ Kobe (96 N Main St) for me and Thai Pepper (84 N Main St) for my husband. Both restaurants have the same owner so I can order my sushi and have it delivered upstairs at Thai Pepper while my husband waits for his.

Our hotel was just a quick drive back from town and the room was the perfect place to eat our meals and finish our wine. The next morning, feeling rejuvenated and rested we hit the highway and continued north.

This hotel would be a great place to use as home base if you plan on spending more time in Ashland. We saw that they offered a shuttle to and from special events.

Breakfast is complementary as is wi-fi.

Room Tip: We overheard one of the desk clerks tell a guest that the rooms close to the pool could get very noi...

Dear Holly_Golightly_13,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review of our property.

I am glad to hear that even as a Bard's Inn regular, that you enjoyed our property so much! We do have a lovely pool and a wonderful property, even though we are right off the freeway. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the Executive Suite you stayed in.

Liquid Assets, Kobe, and Thai Pepper are all wonderful places to dine in Ashland--they are some of my personal favorites as well! I'm glad to hear they could be so accommodating to you.

We hope that next time you are in Ashland that you will choose to stay with us again!

Sincerely,
Brittanie Bellamy, Front Office Manager.

We stopped with a quick hour before reservation at the end of a long day on way to the Yosemite area. The hotel is right off the freeway and a short distance to the crazy fantastic (and expensive) city that is Ashland. The front desk was quick and efficient, realized we were tired and gave me two bottles of cold water and a few granola bars. The rooms were motel style so we unloaded quickly and jumped into a fantastic sized, pleasant temperature pool with lots of room to sit about. The room was clean ( as were the floors) and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom area was large with two sinks. The breakfast was busy, and the pancake machine takes forever with all the people, but the meal was ample and with good coffee.

Room Tip: Don't hesitate to book this place, you will get everything you expect.

We were very happy we chose this hotel as our home base in Ashland, Oregon, For the Shakespeare Festival. Besides the sumptuous garden setting with lots and lots of aromatic flowers, the Old English (Windsor) architectural style of the building was charming too. We used hotels.com to secure this reservation and it went through without a hitch! The room had two king-size beds with six huge stuffed pillows! The room was clean, furnishings well placed, frig, coffee maker, lots of towels and toiletries. Also, a Continental style breakfast was included, containing cereals, eggs, sausage, fruits, pastries, pancake maker, beverages, yogurt, coffee and tea. The staff were efficient, friendly and helpful. They also have a restaurant and bar and grille next door.

But what was the best thing about the Windsor Inn? The shuttle service to downtown Ashland. Parking in Ashland is very difficult because there aren't nearly enough spaces for the thousands of tourists who visit. The Windsor shuttle driver not only dropped us off at the theaters at 1 PM (or, if desired, at 4, 5 , 6 or 7 pm) so we could sight see, she also picked us up at 10:30 PM after the play. The first driver also drove us thru the charming streets of Ashland, giving us a mini-tour to help us get our bearings.

Room Tip: We enjoyed 406 which had a magnificent view of the mountains in the background, past the garden

Dear KanikaAfricanArt,

Wow! Thanks for taking the time to write such a detailed and great review of our property!

I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our property, and that everything went through without a problem! Thank you for the compliments on our breakfast, rooms, and our staff members. We try our hardest to give each guest an experience like yours; and it is great to hear such positive feed back.

It is great to know that you enjoyed our shuttle service. Parking can be difficult in Ashland right before a play--it is great to offer a service to our guests that alleviates that stressful part of vacationing in Ashland.

We hope to see you back at the Windsor Inn again soon!

Sincerely,
Brittanie Bellamy, Front Office Manager

This hotel is well maintained and has amenities that make it a very good value. The room we had was spacious with everything we needed. We especially appreciated the 2 place settings of dishes that were in the cupboard of the wet bar.

This hotel had beautiful grounds with roses, petunias, hydrangeas. It was pricey, but we used our points so it wasn't a problem. Staff were congenial and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. Not too noisy and had a good night's sleep.

Had a wonderful Anniversary experience at the BW Windsor. Room was great! Enjoyed the jacuzzi tub. Landscaping was gorgeous with roses and hydragneas. Staff was very helpful. Breakfast was adequate. Didn't get a chance to use the fitness room.
