6/10 Good

I would describe this as more of a motel (doors to room facing parking lot) than an inn. On our arrival night, we had to move to a new room after finding a live bed bug on the fabric headboard. I picked it up with a tissue and took it to the front desk to show them, and they moved us to a new room with no mention of a discount or credit. The new room smelled damp, but we were exhausted after travel. Unfortunately after the bug incident I was too grossed out to sleep and kept checking for creepy crawlies all night. Location was convenient to walk to downtown Ashland and staff was friendly overall, but will stay elsewhere next time.

Quiet, comfortable, clean, elegant
We stayed here to visit our daughter at the University. Very clean, and wonderful staff. Adorable and elegant historic hotel. VERY comfortable bed and quiet. You can walk to the theatre and all the great shops. We’ve stayed at several other Ashland properties, but this one is hands down our favorite!

We were there for one night after seeing a play. This was our second time at Bard's Inn. It is a good place to stay and you can walk to the theaters. The only issue during our stay this time was that the WiFi was a bit weak in our part of the building.
