I've never been to Ashland (Oregon) and I'm a little overwhelmed by all the hotel options. I'd like to stay in a hotel that is central and gives me good sense of what Ashland (Oregon) is like. I'd love to know where locals tell their friends to stay when they visit, and why those areas and hotels are special. thanks!
Ashland is not very big, so any hotel near the downtown (plaza area) would be fine. Parking can be difficult at times, so staying near downtown works best. I have friends that manage the Stratford Inn which I believe is a mid price range place to stay.
