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?

Breakfast is complementary as is wi-fi.
We overheard one of the desk clerks tell a guest that the rooms close to the pool could get very noi...

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!
