Ashland Hills Hotel & Suites, Ashland, Oregon
My recent stay at Ashland Hills Hotel & Suites, Ashland, Oregon, was filled with delicious foods, activities, and festive things to do in this great city!
Friends, if you’re traveling through Oregon, or planning a groovy escape to Ashland or the southern part of the state, then Ashland Hills Hotel & Suites retro-modern hotel is for you!
Especially if you’re looking for a higher value hotel for your money, in comparison to competing chain hotels in the area. It’s Ashland’s best kept secret!
Ashland Hills Hotel & Suites, Ashland, Oregon
My family and I just returned from staying 4 nights at the retro-modern Ashland Hills Hotel & Suites, enjoying the holidays, visiting with friends and family! If you’re coming to Oregon to enoy the beautiful mountains (hills), scenery, hiking, skiing, outdoors, then THIS is the spot to land!
Let me just say, it’s a super family-friendly hotel, on a gorgeous property with scenic views, modern amenities, and the Oregon-Centric Luna Cafe + Mercantile right in the hotel!
When you walk into the lobby, you’ll be surprised to see super-posh, retro-looking decor, with its own lounge and cafe. The atmosphere was wonderful, with each piece of furniture hand-picked, tastefully decorated with a touch of glamour. The staff were fantastic and so helpful!
We immediately went to our room, and were pleasantly surprised by the space! Of course, having just picked our daughter up from the airport in Bend, we had a quick little celerbation on the bed.
The remarkably decorated mid-century modern large rooms were plenty for our family, with a pull-out sleeper sofa and amazing beds with the most comfortable pillow-tops!
We were super-busy with family and friends, time spent in downtown Ashland, etc., so coming back to our little haven was wonderful!
Luna Cafe + Mercantile
The cafe and mercantile area is super fun! There’s a photo booth, plenty of space for eating and mingling, with multiple seating areas, large floor-to-ceiling windows, stylishly decorated.
This Oregon-centric eatery offers food cooked from scratch, with a focus on farm-fresh and local ingredients. They also sell Oregon brands of specialty items and wines. Our friends the Irvines have the most delicous Irvine wines, and we brought this wine to 3 different parties we attended!
Daily breakfast, coffee and house-made pastries, lunch, dinner and a groovy bar. Click here to view menus at Luna.
Oh, and Organic Noble Coffee is served at the counter. We enjoyed espresso every morning!
Our first night, we had to try their pizza–pork sausage, red onion, pickled peppers, mozzarella, marinara! Oh, WOW!
The bar is in the same area, where we dined, and relaxed by the fire.
Just having celebrated our 25th anniversary, I loved the shot of me and my hubby cuddling, with a darling couple in their 80s or 90s enjoying their time in the same area! Precious!
Fresh from the Rotisserie & Grill, we ordered the Draper Valley chicken, with garlic butter and herb relish, with a side of horseradish smashed potatoes, Carlton Farms pulled pork shoulder, with spicy mustard and BBQ sauce, and a grilled salmon, with basil aioli and garlic butter.
Something for everyone, no matter the age. Wine, sparkling water, Kombucha!
Favorite side? Their Luna Salad, and I’ll be sharing their delicious dressing with you soon (made with fennel, apple, and a crazy-good hazelnut vinaigrette!)
Dessert was amazing. They make their own ice cream, so we enjoyed a Blondie Cream with Caramel ice cream, a White Chocolate Marionberry Tort, and Flourless Chocolate Cake. YUM!
For breakfast, oh, WOW! The breakfast sandwich, with Canadian bacon, cheddar, fried egg, garlic aioli, on sourdough toast! Abby had huevos rancheros made with a brisket chili, fried corn tortillas, medium eggs, cheddar cheese, salsa, and sour cream!
Lunch the last day was a local Tawanda Farms lamb burger, with Dunbar Farms’ black bean burger, both served with Tillamook (Oregon!) cheddar, lettuce, tomato, red onion, pickles, and Luna sauce, on a house bun!
Ashland Hills Hotel is about 3 miles out of the city’s center, but for the price, service, and decor, it’s totally worth it.

Continental Breakfast at hotel
We loved the retro space upstairs, where the hotel offers a generous continental breakfast! Fresh fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, fresh berries, breads, bagels and muffins. They also have two pancake machines–just press start, and in 60 seconds one slides out. The staff were always smiling and very kind.
Let’s talk property and space!
My daughter and I spent one day working in the cafe area, with a lovely view. We were snowed in back home, so we just made ourselves at home here!
The pool is beautiful; my hubby used the hot tub every night, and there is a fine fitness facility.
Oh, and you can also bring your pet with you! What more could you ask for? Next time Haggis is coming! We know he will enjoy his time here as much as we did!
We also highly recommend Lithia Springs Resort on the north end of Ashland!
