Stay Within Walking Distance of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival
Less than a half-mile away from the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, the BEST WESTERN Bard's Inn is the number one choice for Shakespeare fans. Located on Oregon State Route 99, our guests enjoy an easy, ten-minute walk to the festival grounds and the main street of cultural Ashland. So leave your vehicle with us – we offer free parking for all guests.
With a season that runs from February to November, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's repertory company typically produces up to eleven plays a year. While the repertory only handles three or four Shakespeare plays a year, audiences are also treated to interpretations of classic plays from this Tony Award-winning company.
Enjoy a performance in the summer with the outdoor Allen Elizabethan Stage or year-round with the indoor Angus Bowman and Thomas Theaters. Before or after the show, take part in a variety of experiences held year-round that give the event its festival-like feel. Guests often enjoy backstage tours, park talks, lectures, classes, workshops, and conversations with the cast and crew.
Before making your way to the play-going experience, grab a complimentary breakfast or enjoy a stroll through nearby Lithia Park or shopping and dining in downtown Ashland. Our friendly staff and 24-hour front desk are happy to make your stay at BEST WESTERN Bard's Inn as pleasurable as can be.
