Staff extremely professional and welcoming. Easy to walk to theaters. Felt safe for a woman staying and traveling on her own. Great to have a mini refrigerator in the room and bed was comfortable. Some noise can be heard from upstairs rooms if downstairs.

Ended up sleeping in car. Chemical used in room cleaning was irritating to my wife and myself as it was to our Yorker Staff seemed unconcerned at checkout

I am sorry to hear you were less than pleased with the room. We routinely use vinegar as a general purpose cleaner because it is so safe, although there are some spot cleaning supplies sometimes used for stubborn stains. Unless we were sold out, we would have gladly moved you to another room, be it pet-friendly or not, to accommodate your concerns. Our apologies for not acting as though we cared, because we certainly do. If we get a chance to serve you again, please be advised you can request no air fresheners or other chemicals be used in servicing your room prior to arrival.

Wonderful stay as always! We love it here. Thanks!

The room was too small and poorly soundproofed.

Ours was a downstairs room that was quite small. Upstairs guests were extremely noisy and had a dog that barked much of the night. The soundproofing was really poor. Bed was comfy though and on- site breakfast was quite good.

Small noisy room with limited parking!

Pros: Nothing
Cons: See above
This place is the worst! Oh it's clean and quiet like most Best Westerns, but the rooms are very small. We have a king sized bed in an studio sized space on the 2nd floor, no elevator. There's no closet, only an ardmore which is only in the way. When my wife uses the ironing board, there's no room to move around at all. The vanity is so small they put their gear, coffee maker, ice bucket, etc. UNDER the sink! In addition, the a/c-heat is one of those window installed units that cycle on/off all through the night. That plus the traffic noise made it very noisy. They also have limited parking with 28 spaces for 38 rooms. We ended up parking on the street last night which requires going up one of their two steep ramps to the parking/room area.

Wonderful location that's pet friendly!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
There are actually 2 Best Westerns in Ashland off I-5. If you take the time to drive the extra 10-15 minutes into downtown Ashland, the Bard's Inn is a wonderful treat. Right within walking distance to Ashland's adorable downtown, the rooms are nice, clean and comfortable. It is a pet friendly hotel, which earns extra points in my book. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful - with great suggestions for places to eat and grab a cup of coffee or a beer. I' ve stayed there 3 times and will probably stay there again the next time I drive through town
