What is the difference between the ABC lodging package and other hotels in Ashland?

We would recommend that you really think through what it APPEARS you might save by getting a room at a discounted rate elsewhere. All of our hotels have breakfast and include lots of amenities. More importantly, you get the lunch package ON SITE at Ashland High School. It is catered by (no exaggeration) one of the finest caterers in Oregon. Awna's food has been the rave of ABC since we started this service in 2010. While you can find or bring along a less expensive lunch, the true value of what A-Z Catering offers in our package is at least $15 per lunch.

The total cost is $1635 if you are staying at Ashland Hills/Windsor Inn***, or $1495 if you are staying at The Flagship Inn. This includes the motel for 18 nights, plus the included breakfast every day and the catered lunch 13 of those days. While you do have a roommate, every room we offer is a 2-bedded double.

***This year due to a conference rescheduling from a COVID-19 cancellation, our friends at Ashland Hills are unable to accommodate us for the full time of our stay. We have been working with the Windsor Inn to put us up for the first 5 nights, then move over to Ashland Hills for the duration. Windsor Inn is directly across the street from Ashland Hills. If you select the Ashland Hills / Windsor Inn option for housing, you will be at Windsor Inn from June 18 to June 22, then move over to Ashland Hills for June 23 to July 6.
We know this isn't optimal, but it is the only way for us to still use the Hills for 2023.  We have already secured the full time for our 2024 ABC.
To make things easier, we will be providing a secured U-Haul truck for people staying at Windsor to put their belongings in when checking out of Windsor before our first clinic on June 23 which will then be taken to Ashland Hills for everyone to get their things and check in after our day is done.  We will also be adjusting our schedule to allow for time in the morning to get ready for the transfer.
If you wish to change your rooming selection to Flagship because of this, we would like you to do so as soon as possible to assure you can get into Flagship.***
