A nice little splurge
While we were in Ashland we stayed part of the time in some mountain inn that was cheaper than the Ashland Springs Hotel but a little out of the way. We decided to stay at the Ashland Springs Hotel a few nights for a little splurge & it was a great decision (it's really not that expensive). The hotel is really nice, decorated beautifully, & the staff pleasant. I don't recall the size of our room being an issue. My husband & I were really happy with our room & we especially loved the bathroom. We liked the big shower stall w/glass doors. It just felt luxurious. I also really liked their little complimentary bath products - they smell great. The breakfast was continental & nothing special & the seating was kind of cramped. They set tables up everywhere. That was the only negative thing I can say about the hotel. Parking is free & there's a lot of it, but going through the back entrance to the hotel is kind of weird. It's exactly that. A back entrance. All in all, I would definitely stay there again.
I've been to Ashland many times and always wanted to stay here. The lobby is beautiful and I expected the rooms to be equally nice. Unfortunately, this was not the case.
I stayed for one night in room 412. It was the smallest room I have ever paid for at a hotel. A closet would be the best description. The queen size bed took up the entire space. I measured the room at 100 square feet for which I paid $117. At first I thought the room was part of a suite. Not so. The bathroom was equally small. I've never seen anything like it.
At check-out I asked for a guest comment card to inform the management of my disappointment. I was told that the hotel did not offer them. (No one wants to know how guests feel?)
The front desk person told me that all queen size rooms are priced the same. You may want to ask what size room you have been assigned to at time of booking.
I can tell you that the guest room photos on the hotel web site are not representative of size. Buyer beware.
Not everything was negative. The location is great, parking is free, in the morning there is a continental breakfast served, and the rooms are clean
Unfortunately, when I return to Ashland next year, I will not stay here. I can find better value for my money (and space too) at one of the many bed and breakfasts in town.
Beautiful, charming place
The Ashland Springs Hotel is in downtown Ashland, just steps away from the theatres of the Ashland Shakespeare Festival. Built in 1925, it was recently refurbished and still has all of its old world charm. It's beautifully decorated in a style that would make Martha Stewart proud. The lobby has large armchairs, a fire place, curio cabinets with treasures and gentle ceiling fans. The mezzanine overlooking the lobby is where they serve a nice complimentary continental breakfast in the morning. Breakfast includes cereals, toast, bagels, danishes oatmeal, fruit, coffee, tea and juice and is a very nice throw-in. The rooms are small but lovely and cozy, with satellite TV, tidy bathrooms with good quality toiletries. The do-not-disturb signs are adorable (painting of a bird with "nesting, privacy please" written on them, and dangling from a silky cord). The hotel is well-situated in Ashland, with all manner of shops, restaurants and amenities within easy walking distance. Free parking behind the hotel is included with the room. For $99, it was an excellent room and worth more. Beats staying at one of the many B&Bs that are so popular in Ashland.
Great location, great value
What a charming hotel! The lobby and rooms had a very elegant feel to them. I loved the down comforter on the bed. Free, off-street parking is a nice bonus in this downtown location. Breakfast was "continental", and not a "full" meal, but everything offered was fresh and tasty. For $99 per night (through hotels.com) think it was a great deal. The only thing holding me back from a 5-star rating is the cleanliness. The room was spic and span when we arrived, but the carpet in the stairway was stained as was the upholstory on the chair in our room. I was also disappointed to see the rear entry door did not close properly unless you really yanked on it, so the building was basically unsecured when we returned to the hotel at 10pm.
Loved the hotel
The hotel was one of the best I have ever stayed at. The staff was exceptional and really provided first class service. I had a wonderful New Years stay and will be back again next year. Breakfast was excellent. One of the best hotels I have ever stayed at.
Great Romantic Inn
My husband and I stayed at the Ashland Springs Hotel and had an incredible experience. Our corner guestroom had beautiful panoramic views overlooking downtown Ashland and the nearby Cascade Mountains. Food was delicious and the service was impeccable. Being downtown and only a few steps from the Oregon Shakepseare Festival was so convenient. We just parked the car and didn't get back in it until it was time to go home. This majestic historic jewel is a great find!
New Years Eve Nightmare
Our New Year's celebation was a disappointing experience to say the least. Chose this pricey hotel over others for it's on site restaurant for room service and convenience and supposed standards. Upon checking in we were advised the restaurant was under renovation with no apologies or care of the rude desk clerk. Hotel gave NO dislosure to this important fact prior to arrival from the reservation agent or the confimation letter received and it is misrepresening the facts given on their website. This was the just the beginning of experience as our room was left unlocked and door left wide open by the maid with our laptop sitting on the desk, New Years Eve we observed street people coming from street to use restrooms and free to roam up to guest rooms with front desk watching and No security(if any) alerted, dirty carpets throughtout, breakfast room size inadequate for all to sit and very basic/limited food choices. Hotel staff was very inexperienced, careless and needs lessons in customer service. Corner king suite size was small but expected as it is a historical property and very typical european.
Next time we will save our money and stay at any other property in lovely Ashland as this is not the best in town just priced that way.
Vintage hotel lacks attention to details
This hotel comes with some significant history and the charm and ambiance of the hotel exudes all of that. However, when charm and character no longer hold your attention, what's left is unfinished business. Unfortunately, the service is mediocre. Customer service is lacking and it shows itself round every vintage corner of the hotel. There's no room service. The age of the hotel boasts tiny guest rooms. We had a NS King deluxe room and paid $119. It was claustrophobic including the bathrooms. The complimentary breakfast was very very generic and uninspiring. Plus they ran out of coffee 15 minutes before the breakfast deadline (which was our arrival time) and had no intention of brewing a fresh pot. We ended up walking down the street to a Starbucks for our morning coffee. All in all, I think the hotel itself is charming. However, charming doesn't replace customer service, friendly attentiveness or the details that make a stay memorable. It's a shame, but until management revamps the energy of their workers, restores a few conveniences like room service, an open coffee bar and kicks up the steam on the small details that lends itself to a pleasurable experience, why return? Next time, I'll take my $119 down the street to a quaint bed and breakfast and find what this hotel has lost...the desire to please their customer.
My vote for best place to stay in Ashland
I stayed in Ashland 2 nights in October 2003. The first night I had the painful experience of staying at the BW Bard's Inn. I moved to Ashland Springs the 2nd night. It was $20 cheaper, closer to the theatres, clean, cozy and very tastefully decorated. The building was old, but rennovations includ a modern bathroom, nice clean tile floors, comfortable linens and nice extras like a victorian card and lavendar satchet on the bed. I was so regretful I did not stay there both nightsl. If I'm ever in Ashland again, I will not stay anywhere else.
The outdoor Elizabethan stage is just a short walk from the back entrance of this hotel--very convenient.
This hotel is one of the best I have visited in Oregon. Very close to Shakespeare, Historical details are superb, and the Bullseye Bistro even has free wireless high speed internet. Highly recommended.
