We have recently returned from Ashland Oregon where we met with friends and attended plays at the Oregon Shakespeare festival. We stayed at the Bard's Inn, and were very pleased with all aspects of our stay. It was convenient to OSF, quiet, well managed, and had wonderful amenities. We highly recommend it.

We loved walking into this room - the decor was simple but elegant, and the bathroom had a very interesting layout, with the whirlpool and shower next to each other but nicely placed. The gentleman behind the front desk fulfilled our request for a "quite room with a balcony", and gave us the best deal ever! We had a quiet... More

We love staying at the BW Bard's Inn when attending the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. The rooms are very nice. The breakfast is great. We often watch deer in nearby yards while eating. The staff is helpful. We are just one block from the theaters, restaurants and shopping that make Ashland such a great vacation, and we don't have to worry... More

We wanted to stay in town so we could walk this delightful town. We called and were lucky to get one of the last rooms. The room was 5 star. I know it is I travel a lot. We were very pleased with our room and the location to this creative town.

If you want to be in the heart of Ashland, consider this hotel a plus. This location enables you to leave your car and just walk to dinner and the theater. On a nice day, it's nice to have the pool there as well.

Maid found blue jeans which we had left. The front desk called us and shipped them back to us. Great service. Disappointed that the water temperature varied significantly in the shower. Pay more and get a room in one of the newer buildings—well worth the cost. We had an elevator that was much appreciated. All amenities you expect at a... More

If you plan to stay at a comfortable hotel that is close to the main part of Ashland, Oregon, and if you are going to enjoy any of the OSF plays, this is the BEST place to stay. It is a few minutes walk to all the "action" in town, and it's very accommodating. The price is right, too. This... More

I was in town on business and stayed at this hotel which was conveniently located with in walking distance of all the restaurants and shops of downtown Ashland.

This was a great Best Western with a great location in a hidden gem of a town. The hotel was walking distance to great restaurants, bars, movies and the theater. The service was excellent and overall I loved my experience in Ashland due partially to my Best Western stay.

pick an upgrade room and it is an ideal location for plays in Ashland. Very easy walk to theaters and restaurants and rooms are excellent...clean, comfortable, and surprisingly quiet. Breakfast was very good with wide selection. Ashland is a city you want to walk around and enjoy, the location of this property is ideal for that purpose.
