“BEAUTIFUL LITTLE TOWN AND GREAT INN”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

We are heading home to Penticton B.C. after spending 6 months at our home in Palm Springs CA. We chose "The Bard" after reading others good reviews on this site. We are not disappointed with our choice. Our room is very spacious, nicely decorated and very clean. The beds are very comfy. We are traveling with a small dog so they gave us one of their pet friendly rooms that has a little outside patio he can sit out on. The location is excellent, easy walk to many great places to eat. Would stay here again in a heart beat.

This is an older two story motor lodge style motel, with some rooms also housed in a newer building across the street from the original structure. We stayed in a room in the original building, directly above the office. Our room had been recently renovated with flat screen tv, new carpet and new linens for the two beds. We used the room only for sleeping -- arrived at 10pm and were out the next morning -- and it was fine for our purposes. It was clean and quiet and we had a good night of sleep. Our room was $125 plus tax. The free breakfast was typical continental breakfast fare, with cereals, breads/bagels to toast, cartons of yogurt, etc. plus a couple of extras such as a pancake machine and pre-made breakfast burrito roll-ups. We checked it out, but nothing looked very appealing to us and we elected to go elsewhere for breakfast. As many have indicated, the location is ideal for anyone who is visiting Ashland for the Shakespeare Festival.

The location of Bard's Inn is perfect. Walking distance from room to many shops and restaurants was only minutes! The views are fantastic. The breakfast has more options than some, but the quality of breakfast was only okay. The room was clean and comfy.

Right near the heart of downtown Ashland, this renovated Best Western fits the bill. Small pool (so if you have 4 kids, you'll fill it) hot tub and nice, hot breakfast. Comfortable bed and quiet if you are in the rooms near the back away from the road. The staff was helpful in making reservations and finding local attractions. I would stay here again
