Difficult to understand the context in which this resort operates. In many ways, they didn't seem prepared for their full house over Memorial Day weekend. Sweeping up some leaves by the restrooms would have made us feel more welcomed. For the lofty price, it just wasn't a very good value.... However, with demand so high over Memorial Day Weekend, maybe... More

Went to do some kayaking with my girlfriend for her birthday and needed a place to stay on a Saturday that was also close to the ocean. The price was the best I could come up with given the geographical location I needed so I booked a basic unit. First impression of the basic unit is that it was very... More

The cottage we stayed in was roomy, newly refinished, and filled with antiques. Being set back a few blocks from Main Street, The Woods is quiet and peaceful but handy to great restaurants, coffee shops, shops, and markets. Michael couldn't have been more accommodating. Our only regret was that we hadn't come in the spring to enjoy the patio, pool,... More

I stayed here two weeks ago with a few friends and we took 2 rooms. The cottage was convenient, well heated and spacious. The basic cabin was cramped, the heater took forever to work and the access to the room was not convenient if you had baggage. As we visited this place in the thick of winter, we didn't utilize...

Compared to other options in the area, this is a decent hotel. It needs paint and some updating, but the room was large and clean. The walls are thin - I could hear coughing in the next room. The location is great - walk to everything in town, and the owners are very nice.

Great location to get away for a few days.. Hotel very accommodating--in the heart of town. Guests are all interesting people. Good restaurants nearby and all the wines are "mighty fine." Best exploration nearby-Bodega Bay--also, Healdsburg. Bravo to Mike!

Arriving at Woods it does look a little tired but after. A while you get used to the laid back feel of the place. Lovely roses but need dead-heading. Painted concrete that is rough. Cabins that are a little wobbly. However overall it works and is a great and convenient place to stay. Only a short walk through to the... More

Only one complaint: Hot tub above our room ran on the first night at 10 pm then again the next morning at 7 am! It only lasted a few minutes so it wasn't that bothersome to our sleeping, just kind of annoying. That being said...the rooms were very clean, neat, quiet (except for the hot tub) and pleasant. The flowers... More

I loved this hotel. Clean, comfortable, affordable, friendly. Wonderful staff, great location, can't wait to go back. Nice pool, landscaping, flowers and very interesting guests. I recommend this hotel 100%, I thought it was the best hotel on the River. Gay men, this is the place for you!

We stayed at The Woods, we found it to be very relaxing and the beautiful gardens look wonderful. Michael you have done wonders to the property, you are the perfect host.
