Ashland, Oregon: Lodging Options


Wondering where to stay when you visit Ashland?  There are so many choices.  We were in Ashland on our way home from Reno a few weeks ago, and I took these pictures of places to stay near Lithia Park.

Bed and Breakfasts are all over the place.  If you want to learn more about your options, you can click here:  Ashland Bed and Breakfast Network or Bed and Breakfast.com: Ashland, Oregon.






The historic Ashland Springs Hotel is pretty fancy:








I brought home a brochure:




The rates are $99 per night for off-season and $199 for in-season.  Here is a link to their website:  Ashland Springs Hotel

There are hotels and motels all over the place.  I thought that this little one was kind of neat, but it was a bit further away from the park:



We ended up staying here, right downtown at the Bard's Inn:



An older Best Western that has been recently updated, it was super clean, with all the amenities including a pool and hot tub:



The bed was quite comfortable:


The decor was very nice:


There was lots of storage and a flatscreen t.v.:



We ended up ordering pizza delivered, and the little fridge came in handy for the leftovers:




Next to the one we stayed in, there are two other Bard's Inn buildings:



Our room was normally $100, but we talked the front desk woman down to $85.  Don't count on that happening again, but the lady thought that Cary was funny, and I threw in that we were paying with a company card.  We were downtown and only a short walk away from The Shakespearean Festival.  Creatures of habit, we will probably stay there again.  The only thing that they can improve on is their breakfast ... everything was very clean, but there were not very many choices, and our little quiches were rather cold.  I would rather have eggs/sausage and bacon instead.  Here is their website:  Bard's Inn.com

I don't know if I can talk Cary into staying at the Ashland Springs Hotel or not, but I sure hope so...it is quite delightful.



This post is number two in a series of three about our overnight stay in Ashland.  Please check out the post about Lithia Park: Ashland, Oregon's Lithia Park in the Fall.

Your room did look lovely, but I'm partial to B&Bs myself. They usually have lots of personality, and delicious breakfasts!

Habit isn't so bad when you're looking for a reliable place to sleep, I think. Don't want to risk too much when it comes to sleeping at night!

What a delight it would be to stay in that Hotel! But your choice was lovely (clean goes a long way with me!) and I'd like to stay there too. I guess I just love staying at a motel! And you still got to enjoy the historic one. We just visited one (ate there, didn't stay) in downtown Indianapolis at Union Station. It was the old train station and some of the cars have been made into hotel rooms. Quite amazing!

No Copying!

Are you looking for info about Tyler Matthews?

The 2012 Army All-American Day Event

2012 Army All American Game Video


Photo Source: Nike "The Opening Brochure" Pages 2 and 3
During the week of July 5-9, 2011, Cary and I were privileged to attend "The Opening", watching quarterback grandson Tyler Matthews (#43 the first day, and #15 on game days) play with 150 of the best high school football players in the United States. The event was held at Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. I hope that you enjoy the pictures ... some are better photos than others, but I tried to capture as many kids as I could.

There are approximately 500 photos in these slide shows. They are of the players, the fans, our family and everybody/everything that caught my eye. They are in chronological order. No names are on the pictures, even if I do know who people were.

As time permits, I will also be writing blog posts about my experience as a spectator. Since I still have a lot to learn about football and this is not a sports blog, I'll write some human interest stories as seen through my eyes. That said, Tyler Matthews, YOU ROCK!!!!
