While this is a quaint hotel with a friendly staff and a good location, it was not a good fit for us. If you have been to Ashland in August, you know it is WARM and they do not have air conditioning. They do provide a small window fan that allows you to pull the warm daytime air out or... More

Great location, historic building, very quiet, calm, mellow Vibe here. Makes for a nice place to stay when you need a place to chill for a nap in the middle of the afternoon! Great staff too! Already planning our return trip!

My husband and I stayed here for one night on our drive from the SF bay area to the Oregon coast. The location is right downtown near theaters and restaurants. The soap was so good I took the facial bar and used it the next 10 days of vacation. I highly recommend!

We have stayed here twice and have decided this is good for us. But go in knowing that this is much more of a European experience, without the breakfast. First, the good stuff. The beds are comfortable, the staff is wonderful, and the cleaning staff do a great job keeping this 1910 gem clean. The location is perfect, right in... More

Great location, clean rooms, bathrooms and friendly staff. Never had to really wait long to shower and plenty of hot water in the morning. The rooms without AC can be a bit warm and I do think it would be nice to know which room someone gets and where it is located...ie we had room #10 and it is on... More

The Columbia Hotel is right in the middle of Ashland action - theaters, shops, restaurants. Our room had a shared bath (which most do) and was sparse. It did have a sink in the room the helped. Thus, the modest price. I did not mind the shared bath but my daughter was not that happy about going 'down the hall'.... More

I really don't want to write this review because it will only encourage more people to stay here and then it will be booked next time I want to stay. This place is in the middle of downtown, on Main St., walking distance to pretty much everything including the Shakespeare festival. I walked in through the back parking lot up... More

I've stayed here 7 times in the last 5 years as a perfect stopping point between Portland and Cali, and I am always greeted with a smile and a simple, clean room. The historic charm and ideal location are perfect. They often provide fresh flowers in each room, and the Lobby provides space for reading, board games, or chatting with... More

This is a charming small hotel in the perfect downtown location. And the prices are super reasonable. I stayed in a double room with shared bath. Nice, very clean room with a comfortable bed and a sink. The shared bath was right around the corner. Some rooms do have private baths. It was off-season, so while there were other guests,... More

I have stayed here numerous times, and staff have always been incredibly warm, kind, welcoming, and accommodating. The hotel is very clean, charming and perfectly located in the center of town, easy walking distance from theaters, book stores, restaurants, and Lithia Park.
