“Great home base for Oregon Shakespeare Festival”
Reviewed 5 September 2011

This is an inexpensive, older chain motel by the freeway so it wins no awards for basic design. However, the owners take pride in this place; it is extremely clean, comfortable, and well located. The rooms with a king bed have space for a good reading chair, a cold fridge, a microwave, plenty of room lights bright enough for reading. Beds are good and have extra pillows. Strong WiFi signal. The pool is well maintained. Rooms in the back are quiet. The drive to the festival theaters in town takes just over five minutes, and by staying outside the tourist area downtown your room tax is just 1% rather than the inflated rate closer in. We stay here every year and consider it a great value.

My wife and I have driven from the Bay Area to Ashland many times over the past several years to see Shakepearean and other plays, and this Econolodge has always been our choice for an economical place to stay. Pretty basic looking at first glance, but it has everything we've needed - a clean, quiet room, a warm breakfast, and best of all, a very reasonable price. Looking at the other reviews on this page, I guess the secret has gotten out!

At first glance, it seems like it could be a seedy motel off the freeway - but this is a clean and friendly place! Two twenty-two year old women traveling together can be somewhat scary at times, but this place made us feel welcome and safe. It's a five minute drive to downtown Ashland, which was perfect for us - we wanted to go to the Shakespeare Festival but didn't want to pay an arm and a leg for the lodgings!

Rooms are standard and very clean. We had a great view of Oregon mountainside because we were on the back side of the building - so ask for those if you want! The furnishings seem fresh and taken care of. There's a minifridge in the room, along with free WiFi. Breakfast in the morning is only from 6a - 9a though! They have a dining room, with Belgium waffles, fruit, two types of coffee, orange juice -- great!

The owner seems like a nice guy, and really wants to take care of his customers. Perfect place for what we wanted!

Room Tip: Check out the back side rooms for a nice view of the Oregon countryside

The facility is tired and worn out. The gentleman at check in was gruff and unresponsive. The rooms were small, dirty and smelled bad. The beds were recycled from some Marriott with a thin crib like mattress thrown on top. The breakfast was pitiful. The breakfast attendant was a true treat. I believe his parting words to us when we lingered past 9.00 a.m. were " hate to break up the party, but you gotta leave. Shouda (?) kicked you out 15 minutes ago." This place is truly terrible. Avoid it at all costs !!!!!!!

Decent room at a good price in an expensive town. Manager not helpful. Breakfast OK. No newspaper as promised among amenities. Right next door to Oregon Visitor Center--convenient and helpful.
