This is a great little place right in town. The mostly gay clientele is always friendly. They have a variety of room types from very basic to very nice with a price for every budget. The proprietors, Michael and Verna have had the place for a long time so it has an almost family feel. I never stay anywhere else.

The Woods is located on a quiet backroad in the center of town. This location provides a perfect location to get away from the fast pace life of the city. Small down side we found was the early closure of the pool area on hot summer evening it would have been idyllic to slip into the water to cool off.... More

The Woods is a great place to stay. The property is conveniently located close to the restaurants and bars in Guerneville. The property is well maintained and has an abundance of beautiful plants and flowers. The folks that run the property are very nice.

Living in the hustle of San Francisco city life, it is always a pleasure to be able to drive a short distance and feel removed from it all. The first thing you will notice upon arrival at The Woods Resort is the luscious plant life blooming in all corners of the common and pool area. From the fragrant roses spilling... More

I've stayed at The Woods plenty of times, but I was inspired to write a review after a great relaxing weekend in Russian River. I always come back to The Woods because it's a tranquil, friendly experience with a well-maintained pool area. The rooms all have a rustic (RE: crafted without being overly stylized) cabin feel to them. I usually... More

I found my stay at the Woods, as a first time visitor to Guerneville a fortunate choice. It is quiet and beautiful. A short walk to everything in Guernville. The pool a refreshing spot to spend the afternoon. The rooms are simple, comfortable,. and quiet. I will be returning whenever possible. My thanks also to the availability and sociability of...

The Woods Resort is the sort of place that will make you feel very far away from everything. The wifi will keep you connected, but there probably won't be a cell signal. The staff are extremely nice, helpful, and accommodating to requests. The rooms are extremely comfortable. If you're looking for a modern place, this probably isn't for you. But... More

We had a great time staying there over memorial day weekend. It's a wonderful place that is very relaxing. The ground are beautiful, full of flowers and falling asleep to the water feature every night made it perfect!

Stayed there for few nights on a recent California vacation. The place is junky, not well kept and in need of repairs. A coffee cup was in the planter box below our balcony (poolside) when we checked in and still there when we left. Staff on arrival was not very information and almost made us feel like we were a...

this place was great for us right in the middle of our California vacation, just when we were getting tired of every meal in restaurants and hotel breakfast. We loved our cabin with kitchen at first site. We shopped at the supermarket down the block and enjoyed snacks and meals al fresco on the sun or shade deck. When the... More
