TripAdvisor Ratings & Reviews
Ashlaend Shakespeare Festival
The Ashland Springs hotel is an historic hotel so it has an old world charm. The individual staff were all very nice and the room was clean but it was dated and rather cramped. The bathroom was clean. The soaps and shampoo were from a dispenser which I personally don’t love but the actual quality of the items was fine but not luxurious. What was particularly disappointing was the breakfast. It came with the room and at best, I would say it was like eating at at Best Western. It was served in a dark, plain room and we had to bus our own table.There were no breakfast meats and the eggs were scrambled but tasteless and basic. The yoghurt was also very basic and the fruit was very limited. There were some breakfast breads but again basic and that’s about the extent of the breakfast. We chose not to eat there after the first morning. They also offer tea and snacks about 2:00. What is offered are cookies and tea. Eating around the mezzanine balcony is very pleasant and feels like a by gone era, which I found romantic. The water is super cold and refreshing and infused with mint, cucumber and lemon. In the evenings they offer a light “snack” which consists of popcorn and cookies but it was never attended by staff when I stopped in and looked as though they fill the bowl once and that’s it for the 3 hours it’s supposed to be available. I might still stay at the hotel as the bed, though small was very comfortable and the linens were very nice. The hotel is also very convenient.
If you are thinking about booking the petite queen room
The petite queen room is really small. If you are thinking about booking one of these rooms, I advise you to look at something a little larger. I am a small person, and I could barely fit in the shower. There is very little space in the room to get around the bed, and even less space in the bathroom. I thought that the rooms (the first room that they put us in did not have working air conditioning,and so they moved us for the second and third day of our stay) could also use an upgrade, as the carpeting was stained and worn. I wouldn't book this room again.
Convenient and enjoyable
Our reservation was handled efficiently and the reception was friendly. Our room (806) a deluxe-view with King was comfortable and appeared clean. The facilities, although not modern - what would one expect in a historic establishment - were adequate. The parking, with privileges, is a real bonus in as town where it is generally scarce. The lobby was very comfortable and spacious. This is where we will stay if and when we return to Ashland.
Old and Tired
Passing through we spent one night at the historic Ashland Springs Hotel on our way back to Portland from San Francisco. It was our designated stop over so we could take in a play at the Shakespearean Festival. The play was great, the accommodations at Ashland Springs were bad. This is a old and tired hotel that desperately needs updating. It’s to bad because the hotel is essentially attached to a great restaurant called Larks Restaurant (no ownership). We were assigned a room designated as a Jr Suite on the third floor near the back door from the parking lot. Old and dated furniture and bedding. The complimentary breakfast the next day was awful. I didn’t realize scrambled eggs could take such a shape and color as I gazed into the serving platter. The coffee was bad so we decided to go to Starbucks and have a Spinach Wrap with Feta for breakfast. Ashland is full of quaint and delightful lodging options but don’t go to Ashland Springs.
So many reasons to stay
I have been staying at this wonderful hotel annually for 20+years. Convenient to Shakespeare festival, great breakfasts, and friendly staff are great reasons. Rooms are clean, well equipped, but not overly spacious or modern, but worth living with
