We stumbed onto the Magnolia Inn after deciding to get off I-5 and travel through Ashland. We have traveled the I-5 corridor since we moved to Seattle and my family lives in Southern Calif.
While driving through Ashland, Or. we decided to follow the signs to Historic Jacksonville. My wife went in to check out the hotel and returned stating that "this was the place". I was not sure what she saw that made her decide that the Magnolia was the place. It had a cute facade but I did not see anything special. I assumed she must have been really tired and did not want to check out other places to stay.
I proceeded to check in and found out the basis fro her statement. Robert the co-owner was very personable and sonw to earth. He showed us all the available rooms and they were nicely appointed. T.V.'s were a bit small but adequate.
I will caution future quests to think twice about picking the accessible room downstairs (where we stayed) since there is a waste pipe from the toilet upstairs that is in the wall and sounds like a waterfall everytime someone flushes. You get used to it.
My main reason for rating this Inn as above average was because of the owners. Robert and his wife are very helpful and make you feel at home. It so comfortable that there usually are freshly baked cookies available upstairs along with microwave pop-corn, licorice. There is a large selection of films for the VCR.
There are games and books. Breakfast is continental and if weather permits there is a nice upstairs outdoor deck to have you coffee and muffins.
We stayed two days and told Robert he need not fix the room up but he insisted on sprucing it up.
He also offered to carry luggage. We would recommend a stay at the Magnolia.
