“Clean, quiet value with great service & breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

We showed up late without a reservation. The Front Desk clerk was exceptional, talked about the other properties in town, showed us a room and gave us a deal. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The beds were quite comfortable. The whole property was in good repair and aesthetically pleasant. Great location for downtown Ashland. Complimentary breakfast was well above average. All the staff were efficient, responsive and very friendly. Would definitely stay again.

One of the nicest Best Western's I've ever stayed at. Friendly and helpful staff. Great location (walking distance to shops and restaurants), reasonable prices, beautiful rooms and a full breakfast buffet!

Our family was traveling from Seattle to San Jose. Brianna was able to give us side by side rooms for a very fair price. Check in was quick and efficient. Both rooms were newly renovated and immaculate. Exceeded our expectations. Clean remote control too (nice). Would stay here again.

One of the best location in Ashand right in dowtown. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Parking was convenient. The room rate was higher compared to other hotels in town. Complimentary breakfast was convenient. If planning to spend most of time in downtown area this hotel is a good choice.

Thank you staying at our property and taking the time to write a response. I need to correct something that was in your review however, we are not overpriced but are competitively priced with the other downtown hotels. As a matter of fact we are usually the least expensive hotel in the downtown area depending on the time of year you choose to visit Ashland. We are conveniently located within walking distance to restaurants, shops and attractions. We hope we will see you again the next time you visit Ashland.
Sincerely,
Holly

The staff at this hotel is amazing....most accomodating - all you had to do was ask. We had a large room with plenty of space for all our belongings and we were two women with lots of stuff. We were in the annex across the street from check in so don't know if that is the old part or not but we were most comfortable. Access to town is great as you can walk everywhere; restaurants, the various theatres, their amazing park, etc. I know the inn is doing some remodeling so it should even be better when done. We had absolutely no problems with breakfast. A pretty darn good variety for a BW; actually one of the best we have ever experienced at a BW. Normally you only get rolls, coffee and maybe cereal. They not only had those items but offered quiche, burritos, casadeas, bagels, etc. I would definitely stay there again on my next visit.

Room Tip: Just aks for a larger room if you don't like what you first get. The rooms not facing the stree...

Stayed here the night of Nov. 23. My comments apply to the older section of the hotel near the lobby. The location of Bard's Inn is excellent, very convenient to downtown. The room was clean. Beyond that, our room on the 2nd floor did not have much to recommend it. It was small and cramped, with an armoire jutting out into the walking area. One suitcase rack was provided, but no accommodation was made for a second suitcase; I ended up having to put mine on the floor. I can usually find a surface--a dresser for example--but there were no "surfaces" here large enough for a second suitcase.

I believe that Bard's Inn is making an effort to have variety with the breakfast. Be aware that the quiche has a thick, soggy crust and no taste.

The front desk clerk who checked us in did not have a warm greeting for us; in fact, she gave no greeting at all. On the other hand, when we were having problems regulating the heater, a man came up right away and was very pleasant.

So... a mixed experience. My feeling is that this room was overpriced for what it offered. I would stay at Bard's Inn again, but not in the "older" section; and I would possibly eat breakfast elsewhere.
