As a family of 4 including two teenage boys, our challenge when traveling is to find something big enough for us all to fit in, without having to spring for the cost of two rooms. In our first stay at the Bard's Inn, we found the place to be generally pleasant, and they met our "big enough" requirement, but only just barely.
Positives: Great location (easy walk to downtown Ashland), friendly staff, good free continental berakfast.
Gripes: Our suite had the requisite two rooms and 3 beds, but the design was a bit odd, and there weren't quite enuogh square-feet in the room. The bathroom was a bit small and had no towel rack. There wasn't a good place for me to set up my laptop; Also, the windows opened up onto the main street, we had to close them at night to escape the street noise.
These are all minor problems, I don't know of any other place in Ashland that would meet our needs better -- and Ashland has a lot to offer so we may yet return again.
