Nice Amenities but Bad Service and Overpriced
On the positive side, my room was well appointed with a very comfortable bed, nice furniture, and classy windows to look out over the parking lot! Really, quality stuff. But,... First check-in was unpleasant. I arrived at 3:47 and was told that check-in was 4 pm. No room was ready. They would call me when I could check in.... well, okay. I think 4 pm is kind of late, but, well, okay. So, I went and picked up my OSF will call tickets and came back at 4:15. They front-desk simply checked me in then... they never called and told me a room was ready, but at least they gave me a room key. The other service problem I had was with the cleaning of the room. By 3 pm my room hadn't been made up. The front desk cheerfully offered to have someone come by my room, but she noted that sometimes the rooms don't get serviced until after 5. Seriously. Get more room cleaners. 5 pm?? And, then there is the issue of parking. Their underground garage says compacts only, although the spaces are plenty big. But, keep your non-compact on the main level! The problem is that the ramps were constructed so that average size cars have a very hard time exiting. (See the photograph of the ramp with many, many scrape marks from unsuccessful guest attempts!) Of course, there are not enough parking spaces on the main level to accommodate the guests. So, ] had to park on the nearby city streets overnight a couple nights. Finally, the pace is God-awful expensive. It's a motel room, not a resort. Apparently they do yield pricing and jack up the price to $250+/night for weekend nights. Hey, the bed was comfortable. But after begging for a room key, fighting for parking, and paying a ransom, I decided to pass on this place for future trips.
Besides the creekside the location is ideal
We attended the Oregon Shakespeare (OSF) Festival theaters here in Ashland and this wonderfully appointed lodging was well suited to meet our adult needs. If you are a walker, the location is within walking distance of the OSF venues, in addition to numerous eateries, especially along the Creek-walk outdoor by-way. The Plaza is equipped with a hot tub (except they drain it on days --so check ahead-- which inconveniences the gusts in the afternoon), Kuereg™ coffee in the room and provides wonderfully warm bathrobes. A slow elevator gets you from covered parking garages to your agreeably appointed rooms, some with excellent views of a parklike facade away from the street side of the facility. The refrigerator, microwave, & wifi work as well as television. Our room was equipped with a large (two-person) whirlpool bath. Lighting could be better in the room and they could use nightlights in the WC. The housekeeping staff was superb when we were there in the Fall, and the breakfast staff helpful.
Excellent personal attention
The Plaza is a really nice hotel in the heart of Ashland, literally in walking distance from the OSF theaters and the downtown restaurants and shops. The premises are clean and nicely decorated, the staff is extremely courteous and provides special attention to individual needs and requests. The complementary breakfast is delicious and is served in a dining hall overlooking Ashland Creek and the luscious vegetation around it. Very enjoyable stay!!!
Got a charge out of staying here
The Plaza Inn was an excellent accommodation: clean, handsome rooms, great location, free indoor/outdoor parking, and excellent service. It’s a five-minute walk to downtown Ashland and a wide variety of restaurants, and an additional three minutes to get to the OSF theaters. The breakfast was a little disappointing – a small spread that hardly changed from day to day, so a periodic trip to a local breakfast restaurant was a nice break. But the shining moment came when we went to our car to begin a day trip to Jacksonville, and found the battery drained (I think I left the headlights on). Staff members Bill and Luis jumped to the rescue with jumper cables, and with Luis' van parked next to mine, and after a YouTube video to determine the positive and negative terminals on my Prius, they charged the battery. What could have been an up-to-an-hour wait for a garage mechanic to come and charge it, we were off and driving in 10 minutes. Thanks guys! We would definitely return here on our next trip. Keep the cables handy.
Comfortable hotel an easy walk to Oregon Shakespeare Festival theaters
Pleasant room with a balcony, comfortable beds, mini fridge. The patio outside the dining room is a lovely place for breakfast (which is fine if not as fancy as some). Appetizers are served from 5-6 p.m. and bottles of good local wine available for purchase, so you can enjoy happy hour above the creek. Cookies offered from 10-12 p.m.: on your return from the theatre. Friendly staff.
