“Quaint Stay in Ashland, OR”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

My wife and I chose this "motor hotel" partly because of it's proximity to the business event I was attending, and partly because of it's apparent charms evident on their website. (also because I did NOT want to spend three nights in the "Tower of Terror" in the heart of Ashland...)

The room we stayed in was comfy, smallish, but cozy. All of which is important in a place where rain and damp is fairly constant (especially in March!). The bathroom was updated and modern - quite clean and very cool efforts with the amenities. The bedroom area was small in this particular cabin, but I didn't get to spend much time there, so it was more than roomy enough for my wife.

The kitchenette was a trip! 1940's era cooking range with a built-in refrigerator. Never did see one of these before. And a handy microwave tucked away in a cupboard, just in case. This room was the one charming reminder of a by-gone era of motor hotels. I loved it, but it may not be for everyone.

Outside the grounds were clean, lit up with all types of cool string lights, lights in the trees, lights in the ground, etc. Made the nights feel a bit magical, if you know what I mean. Beautiful pool which we did not get to use. and alluring little grassy areas with chairs tucked away here and there amongst the cabins. Quite appealing.

I would recommend this location quite readily for someone not looking for upscale, sterile, hotel-style accommodations. Linda was a star - even when I lost my room key. Oh! And the comfy chair you had to sit in at the front desk was a nice touch - very welcoming and disarming.

Room Tip: Ask for a fireplace and an end unit, if possible.

Before motels. there were motor courts. At their best, these accomodations were pleasing to the eye, homey and affordable. The Palm retains these attributes. It is walking distance to downtown Ashland's attractions, including the OSF. (A mile stroll along the main street.) For a comfortable unpretentious stay in Ashland without the forced intimacy of a B&B or mind-numbing sameness of a chain motel, The Palm is a great choice.

Room Tip: Since The Palm offers coffee but no breakfast, you may wish to "splurge" on a room with a...

We had read reviews of The Palm and it seemed the sort of place we enjoy--individualistic and distinctive. Our experience was such we would definitely have this as our first choice when in Ashland. Check in was easy and Linda was very helpful with suggestions for restaurants and activities. The room was very clean and the kitchenette was well equipped. Lots of nice little touches throughout added to the value of the place.

Room Tip: Try for the room with the kitchenette. It is both useful and quiet.

We found the Palm to be a fantastic place to spend a weekend. The room was clean, comfortable and stylish and super quiet, while the staff was friendly and helpful. Old Motor Lodge charm with modern touches and beautiful landscaping, we will definitely be coming back! Thank you!

Stayed in many places and this is one of my favs. A blend of guesthouse and motel. Reminds me of the motor courts out of the 50-60's yet modern feature. Clean rooms. A great kitchenette with a stove fridge combo. Cozy for two. I've stayed here many times over the years and keep coming back. Room 4 is a deluxe queen that is nestled in a back corner from the road. Quiet. Good ground coffee (after all this is Ashland and across from the university). A minute walk from Morning Glory- great brkfst and lunch place. Comfy bed with cotton sheets and a cotton blanket.

I had stay at its sister hotel ,Columbia, in Ashland but this time we needed a little bit more modern with TV, The Palm is sweet, beautiful gardens, nice beds and bedding. A bit small but good for couple of nights ( although that may be our specific room for 4 ) It was room # 2, a queen bed and a full bed but with a little alcove, it is a nice set up. Also next to Morning Glory!!! a great breakfast/lunch place. You do have to get in the car if you want to enjoy downtown but here you are close to the Southern Oregon University campus which is nice as well. The service was excellent and I will love to be back in the spring or summer, to enjoy the wonderful garden and the cute pool!

We (2 adults, 2 children under age 5) really enjoyed our one-night stay in a deluxe suite at the Palm Cottages during our road trip from California to BC in mid-December. The suite's sleeping areas had two queen beds--one bed was in a room "separated" from the main room by a curtain (no door). There was room enough for our younger child's travel crib. The bathroom was spacious and had a roomy shower (no tub). The full kitchen was separated from the sleeping area by a door and was complete with range top, oven, microwave, coffee maker, crockery, utensils, dishes, etc., and had a table that seats four people. While the kitchen maintained a retro look, the sleeping areas and bathroom were contemporary. Though not really large enough for the kids to play much inside the suite (which shouldn't be an issue in nicer weather anyway), we found it comfortable. Overall, the deluxe suite would be an excellent choice for small families or groups looking for a self-catering option in Ashland.
