“Not fancy but good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

This was my second time staying at the Stratford Inn. Both times I've found the staff to be pleasant, friendly, and helpful. The room decor is fairly plain, but it was adequate for my needs and the beds were comfortable. This time I was in room 301, and the only negative was being able to hear noise from other guests in the indoor pool area adjacent to the room, which is open until 1am. The complementary breakfast spread isn't as elaborate as at some other hotels, but it's sufficient and I've seen worse. I didn't visit the attached coffee house on this trip, but I did the first time and thought the food and service there was good. The location is good too, just a couple minutes walk into downtown Ashland, and a Safeway across the street for any items you might need.

We always stay here. Friendly staff, clean rooms and great continental breakfast.
Close to theater and shopping and right next to a Safeway. I like to stay on the 3rd or top floor--it seems to be quieter.

Room Tip: The back side (parking lot side) of the motel is quieter.

We spent a wonderful weekend in Ashland with our family. The Inn is walking distance from downtown and the theaters. It is also close to a grocery store so we could take advantage of the small kitchen in our room. The kids love the pool and we love the jacuzzi. It really is a complete package for a weekend getaway.

I always stay here when I am traveling in Oregon. The staff is extremely helpful and polite, the accommodations are clean, comfortable, and well taken care of. The location makes access to the downtown area easily walkable which is convenient for shopping, eating, and entertainment.
They also have a convenient breakfast in the morning and a small cafe
for further food offerings. I love this place and will continue to stay here.

I've stayed at numerous B&Bs and Hotels in Ashland, and found the Stratford to be a pretty good bargain in compairison. For nearly half the price of the other places I've stayed at, this hotel is as clean, comfortable, and convenient as the higher priced others. It's only a block from the downtown area of Ashland, and a very short walking distance further on from the Shakespearian Theaters. One of the best Italian Restaurants in the area is located just behind the Hotel, and there is a Safeway Store on the adjacent block that has many goodies you may need to make your stay a little nicer. The Hotel Staff are among some of the more polite and friendly people I've met in Ashland. This also appears to be a very family friendly hotel. I will stay here again.

I've been coming to the Stratford for years now and it never disappoints. The staff is friendly and helpful (including cheerful assistance with WiFi issues), the rooms are clean and comfortable and the price is right. The location is perfect, just enough of a walk to the OSF theatres to make you feel you've gotten some exercise (and the window shopping is free). I can't imagine staying anywhere else.

Room Tip: Away from the stairs and elevator (higher room numbers)
