Travelled to Ashland recently to do some wine country tastings, and we booked this hotel due to its quaint charm. We were there on the hottest weekend of the year and our room had no AC. In fact most of the rooms have no AC. So be plan accordingly. This is a European style hotel in the truest sense...you have to leave your room to use the toilet in a separate area, then walk down the hall to take a shower. If this is not your style, you should not stay here. The front desk is not manned 24hours, so any late night needs will not be met until the following day. All that said, the bed was comfy and we only went to the room well after dark so it wasn't TOO hot in there (about 80 degrees). If I was going to Ashland during cooler days in the fall or winter I would stay here again, but summer travel will find me booking a different property.

Good/funky old hotel where most rooms have a shared bath down the hall, and there's no air conditioning - plan accordingly by the season. All that said, it's an ideal location and a reasonable price - parking in the back, nice lobby for hanging out, walk to the plays and restaurants.

The staff is very friendly and very helpful. I called ahead to announce a late arrival and they handled it for me. The location is excellent, you can walk to everything. The night clerk helped me to get to the best Sushi place, "Kolbe", a little hard to find. The rooms are charming, however poorly appointed, no surface in bathroom to put anything, the shower towels were very small and the room had only 2 outlets, one occupied by lamp on night stand. So you can't charge laptop and phone. But the really bad thing was the smell of urine in the long stair case, which leads from street to hotel floor on second level.

This time trip advisor let us down big time. This disastrous hotel is a B&B without the food B. I gave it one star only because it is a good central location and the ever changing front desk clerks ( in our four days we only saw one person twice) are nice. We had the suite 11 which was a small room with a daybed connected to a small dimly lit bedroom with a full sized very uncomfortable bed and worn pillows, with badly worn and stained carpeting. Furniture was chipped Salvation Army rejects. The bedroom lamp was cracked in pieces and the bulb was hanging loosely. The window looked over an air shaft and other interior room windows. the bathtub was a claw foot with a shower Over it whose curtain barely surrounded it with a huge step up. Slippery and dangerous if you are under 6 foot tall. We paid extra for air conditioning which was an old rumbling unit that groaned on and off all night waking us up. The owners aren’t keeping this place up. It is truly disappointing in every respect, especially climbing up 30steps each time you come home. Oh and there is not sufficient parking so you’re always hunting for a space on the street. No bellman for help with dragging your luggage up the stairs, front or back. And for this we paid $1000 for our stay. Can you say Ripoff? I would never ever come back. Ever! . I’d recommend you try anything else.

This hotel does not disclose on its website or booking agencies that it is not accessible to disabled people. Many steps are required to enter. I use a wheelchair and found out the hard way that the hotel does not comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Unfortunately, this occurred during the popular Ashland Shakespeare festival, when all other venues were booked for miles around. How disappointing, and there was no manager available to discuss our options with. Further note: few of the rooms have private baths or showers, either. Caveat emptor.
