We discovered Bard's Inn by accident, but have already made one return visit. There will be many more. Warm welcome, very attractive facility, quiet, clean, comfortable. Prices are very reasonable, especially with the great breakfast included. The town is great, small shops and unique restaurants within easy walk of the inn. Ashland is frequently a destination in itself, and now...

My husband and I stayed here the first time we attended plays in Ashland. The location couldn't be better. I booked another stay at Bard's Inn for July to see more plays. The room was clean and quiet.

Hi E5918KMsarahm, Thank you again for posting another review about our unfortunate guest who got stuck in the elevator during the city power outage. I'm sorry that you felt the hotel's response to the city power outage was not acceptable.

We have stayed at Bard's Inn on many occasions when attending the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's plays. The breakfast is one of the best I've ever had. The rooms are clean and tastefully decorated. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

Hotel was quiet and comfortable; very nice breakfast and location for breakfast. We had the standard king room, bed was comfortable but room seemed very small. Doing this review was the hardest part. I'd rather be brief and to the point, not write an essay.

We travel the I-5 corridor frequently and have several favorites in Southern Oregon. When we are tight on time, a stop in Ashland offers several advantages. Here's our take: 1. Fair Price: about $100 a night. 2. Good Location: easy walk to Lithia Park. Many good restaurants and bars nearby. 3. Lots to do in town, centering on the arts....
