Hotels in Medford, Oregon, United States of America - your base to discover the city.
Medford HotelsAt the heart of the stunning Rogue Valley - and surrounded by green pear trees, weighed down by their tear-shaped fruits – Medford’s outdoor charms and quaint wineries never fail to leave a sweet taste in the mouth. Shimmering turquoise lakes invite you to swim and relax in the sun during your stay, while the extensive hiking and mountain biking trails that encircle the city are sure to keep you active. Downtown is full of fresh experiences, whether you want to groove to outdoor concerts at Medford Condon Shell, or drown in a sea of shops while searching for that one great bargain at Rogue Valley Mall. Things to seeTo get outside - and taste the crisp country air - take a trip out to Applegate Lake, where you can swim in the cool water, and enjoy picnicking on the grassy banks. Or, try the intensely blue Crater Lake, which was formed by the collapse of the Mount Mazama volcano, and is the deepest lake in the US. Make sure you keep an eye out for the ‘Old Man of the Lake’ - a huge tree trunk that was first seen bobbing around the lake’s clear waters in 1896. If you want to get your heart racing, buckle yourself in for a jet boat ride - or strap on your lifejacket for some white water rafting – on the raging Rogue River. You’ll see fishermen hauling Chinook salmon from the flow as you surge past steep river banks, which rise dramatically from the water’s edge. Look down over the gushing river from above by taking a scenic hike to the top of Table Rock. Spring flowers add a sprinkling of color to the flat summit of the exposed rock formation.Hotels in MedfordAfter a tough day’s hiking, there’s no better way to relax than by swimming a few gentle lengths in an indoor swimming pool, or by lying back on a pillow-smothered bed to channel flick through Cable TV. Comfortable hotel rooms in the city guarantee that you’ll wake up well rested each morning – unless you decide to take advantage of the attached bar, and indulge in a few too many nightcaps. Choose between vast rooms - with inviting sofas and cavernous baths - or more basic options that provide air conditioning, WiFi and hot drinks facilities without hurting the wallet.Where to stayCheck into one of Medford’s cheap hotels before heading out to watch tales of love and treachery, played out on stage at Ashford’s Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Or, enjoy an evening exploring Medford’s Old Town, where foods from all over the world sizzle. Try seafood Paella, in Spanish-style tapas bars, or taste one of Oregon’s own ‘Dutch Babies’ – a pancake-pastry stuffed with sharp local berries. While the area around Medford provides plenty of intriguing tastes and outdoor thrills, if you’re wanting to ski, Mount Ashland Ski Area is too tempting to overlook. Around an hour’s drive from the city, you can test yourself on the challenging slopes before returning to light a log fire in your cozy wooden chalet each evening. How to get to MedfordThe easiest way to get to Rogue Valley is to fly into Medford Airport, which is minutes from downtown. Flights from locations including Alaska, Las Vegas, Portland, and San Francisco all touch down at the airport, and car rental is available from the terminal. If you’d rather not fly, the city of Klamath Falls - which is about an hour and a half’s drive away - is linked with Seattle and Los Angles by Amtrak’s Coast Starlight train. A local bus service makes exploring the Rogue Valley without a car possible.
