Plaza Inn & Suites at Ashland Creek
Travel Blogs from Ashland
Arrived at Ashland just after lunchtime.
First task of the day was to find somewhere to stay - our preferred place The Peerless Hotel had two slight issues - one they had a wedding taking place which meant limited options to stay and two - they didn't take small children - so that ruled them out. Triply compounded by the fact that their restaurant was closed on Sunday nights..
Whilst we sat in the cool multi-storey car park we rang round a few ...
... paper thin - so we were woken up by the kids above screaming and running around at 5am, the breakfast room was so small there wasn't any room (nor any food left) and the room had a funny smell (and it wasn't me or Francesca's feet this time!)
Julie dutifully complained and got a nice discount on the room rate ...
Our original plan had been to travel further down the Oregon coast from Newport and then turn inland to Ashland for the night on our way to Lake Tahoe. But we woke up to more heavy fog and decided to change the route to head directly inland to find the sun. So we took route 20. We quickly found ourselves gaining elevation and driving through the rain forests that I had imagined. I was blown away by the moss covered trees. I was always taught that moss grows on the north side ...

After a few bleary-eyed moments adjusting to the bright lights and a general sense of chaos, one volunteer comes up to me and exclaims,

Historical Traveler Reviews Plaza Inn & Suites at Ashland Creek
Fine place to stay
I've stayed here on two different ocassions, both were in the off season so things might be a bit different when it's crowded. The rooms I had were both very clean, the bed is comfortable, there was free broadband wired internet connections, and there was plenty of space in both of the king bed rooms I've had. The front desk staff was friendly althought the first night they recommended the restaurant next door, Beasley's, which was not at all good. The off season rates are very reasonable so if you are looking for a place to stay that is close to town, has good parking, and is clean I'd certainly recommend the Plaza Inn.
My partner and I stayed here March 25th and 26th, 2005. It's adequate -- the rooms are nice and they allow pets, which enabled us to take our small dog. It's very close to the theaters and there's a microwave, fridge and coffemaker. However, the front desk staff are not friendly, the walls are paper thin, and worst of all, the water gets lukewarm at best. After a day of hiking the thing we wanted most was a hot shower to get ready for dinner and a play -- no such luck. Additionally, the water pressure in the shower is pretty lame. Given all of the options in Ashland (including those places that take pets), I would look around before staying here. Oh, and the evening "snacks" (chips) are silly (buy yourself a bag at the store) and the line for the pb and jelly is ridiculous -- and you make it yourself. What people will do for anything that's free. :)
Won't Stay Again
I had stayed at the Plaza once before and it was okay. When I arrived, the hotel was having an overbooking problem. The concierge, Joe, is no longer there and his "replacment" knew less about Ashland than I did. The room decor is goddy and their breakfast needs many improvments. The rooms seemed exteremly noisy for not being on a major street. I will never stay here again.
Good value with very nice accommodations & location
The help at the desk went out of their way to get us a room after we discovered the disappointing room we had booked at the hotel across the street. The rooms are a very modern style and comfortable. The location is incredibly central. You can walk to the theatre, movies, shops and restaurants and forget about your car. I love the peanut butter sandwiches, cookies and milk they put out at night for the later comers from the plays. Would stay again.
We actually had reservations at a B & B, which through a very odd set of circumstances were cancelled. It was serendipity as my husband and I actually came out ahead because we truly enjoyed our stay at the Plaza Suites. The hotel is within walking distance of downtown with its interesting stores and great restaurants as well as the Shakespeare Festival. We stayed in a suite on the top floor which was spacious and had every convenience as well as a fireplace. Our room overlooked the garden, fountain and creek. The front staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and desired to make sure that they were there to make our stay as pleasurable as possible. The breakfast had a good selection from which to choose. The milk and cookies served after the plays was a nice touch. The wine and cheese hour was well done as we learned about the wines of the region that were being served. All in all we were extremely pleased.
I wasnt that impressed,nice rooms, but a lot of overhead noise,poor parking,staff robotic,location was good tho.If I went again i,d choose a smaller B and B.
Best Location in Ashland
Plaza Inn & Suites at Ashland Creek is a terrific place to stay in Ashland. The location is perfect for the theaters, shopping, restaurants. The staff is very helpful & accomodating, the concierge Joe is great to deal with. The room amenities are good--closet a bit small. The continental breakfast is the best I've had anywhere. Nightly cookies are a treat!
Wonderful Holiday experience
My family spent 3 days during Christmas at the hotel and I must say it was a wonderful experience. The front desk staff were always pleasant, cheerful and helpful and the cleaning staff did an exceptional job in helping us remove all that wrapping paper and boxes. We could not have asked for a better stay and would recommend the hotel to anyone staying in Ashland. We were pleasantly surprised at the beautiful scenery, expecially after the snowfall, what a surprise for Christmas. The location is excellent allowing an easy stroll to the square and local restaurants. Thanks to everyone for making our stay special
Best place to stay in Ashland
I know Ashland very well and visit often. I always try to stay at the Plaza Inn Suites. The location is perfect, an easy walk to the Shakespeare Festival and downtown, and the rooms are comfortable. When they are not full, they usually give me a free upgrade when I arrrive and ask if there are any larger rooms available. The service is great too, and they have a nice continental breakfast and snacks in the late afternoon and evening.
Plaza Inn and Suites
My 2 adult daughters and I stayed for 2 nights at the Plaza and attended a "Midsummer's Night Dream." Our accomodations were great, the rooms are nicely decorated, and the staff was very pleasant. They had a wine/cheese social Sat. night, and snacks after the play. We used the gym which is small, but never had problems getting onto the equipment. The location is very central; don't miss a play in the Elizabethan theater.
