My wife and I were driving north from the SF Bay area and decided to make the trip leisurely but stopping for the night in Ashland. While I drove, my wife found the Ashland Hills Hotel and Suites on Trip Advisor and we booked the night shortly before arriving.
Beside scoring an AARP rate, we would have been happy to pay the full rate for a very nice hotel room. The staff was friendly and helpful and the room was nice. It's a little bit away from downtown Ashland but this did not distract from the stay.
It was very conveniently located by the Interstate which made the morning's departure that much easier.
