During your holiday travels, you may find yourself overnighting in a hotel or two. If your mid-way stop happens to be in Southern Oregon, you’re in luck! We’ve put together a list of places to stay in the area that are within walking distance of local breweries. Because, heck, if you’re going to stay in a room for a night you should probably throw in a stroll and some local beer while you’re here.
Here’s our list of places to stay in the Rogue Valley with local craft breweries nearby:
Inn at the Commons | Medford
Nearby breweries: Portal Brewing Co.
This downtown Medford gem is right across the street from us, so when we open after the New Year we’ll be able to add Common Block to this list, too! From Inn at the Commons, Portal is an easy jaunt just a few blocks away. You can also hit up Beerworks bottleshop on Main Street, or BricktownE Brewing Co. on Central, if you’re wanting to grab a selection for back at the hotel. Make it a downtown beer tour!

Holiday Inn Express & Suites | Ashland
Nearby brewery: Caldera Brewing Co.
Lounge in the hot tub and then walk a few minutes up the street to Caldera for food, beer, and great views of the hills. The brewery’s patio is dog-friendly, as is the hotel.
Blue Moon Bed & Breakfast | Ashland
Nearby breweries: Swing Tree Brewing Co. (.4 mi)
This taproom is just under a half-mile walk for those of you who want a bit more exercise between pints. Cozy up at the bar, or channel your inner kid for the holidays with games like shuffleboard, Jumbo Jenga, foosball and darts.
Redwood Motel | Grants Pass
Nearby breweries : Climate City Brewing Co. (.8 mi)
This brewery is a little further away from where you’ll stay, but worth the walk. Weather permitting, enjoy the patio (since you’ll have your walking jacket with you anyway), and munch on one of their several pizzas with your brew.
Safe travels to all over the holidays! While commuting to see family and friends, use the opportunity to visit craft breweries along the way. Grab some beer to-go, too, for gifts or parties, and be that person who shows up with great beer. We all love that person.
