There is nothing charming or notable about the property but my room in the building across the street from the office was OK for a motel The only reason to stay here would be its convenience to the Shakespeare festival. However, since that is complete rubbish, rethink your trip

The Bard's Inn is the perfect location for attending the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. It's a 6 minute walk to the theaters and near many restaurants and bars. We parked our car (free parking) when we arrived and didn't move it until we left Ashland. Our room in the newer section of the motel was spacious and comfortable for 2 friends.... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel… We came for a Shakespeare play and time just to spend with a couple of our friends. The beds are very firm, the breakfast is average, and there is lots of traffic on the front side of the building where the pool is. However the pool water is cool & clean, the... More

Dear Bard's Inn Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at our hotel. One of the downsides of being right in downtown is some of our rooms are adjacent to the road. However, the street noise does die down around 10 pm. I'm glad to hear to did enjoy the pool, our clean rooms, and the... More

First, the location could not be better. A short walk to the theaters and downtown area. The rooms and clean and the beds are superior to most any pace I have stayed. We had a 2 bedroom queen room. The bath had a large two sink vanity and divided the two rooms. The breafast was well stocked. And, of course... More

This cluster of buildings has a great location for on-foot exploration of Main Street shops and walk to Shakespeare. Our reservation was made directly because of timing and short supply.$210/night for deluxe dbl queen. The beds were comfortable, the towels were nice, the breakfast was above average, the staff aimed to please. Unhappiness came about with the LOW toilet, the... More

After extremely unpleasant accommodations in other Ashland hotels, The Bard's Inn is refreshingly awesome. Room is exceptionally clean, and the rooms we've stayed in have a bar by the shower for ease getting into the tub, It's quiet, walkable distance from restaurants, park and Shakespeare plays, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is adequate with several choices and... More

The Bard's Inn is conveniently located within walking distance of the core area and the theater. The Inn includes at least 5 buildings, and depending on which one you are in you may have to cross a main street to get from your room to the breakfast room.

The Bards Inn offers clean rooms, a friendly staff, and a very good breakfast. More importantly, it has an outstanding location, right in the heart of Ashland, next to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and many outstanding restaurants.

Low-key lodging in downtown Ashland near the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Easy walk to the theater. Free parking. Free breakfast (typical free breakfast quality). Great service from employees. Family-friendly.
