I have stayed here before and hence I decided to come back. It's very basic. But, clean and the folks are very accommodating. I had cabin 17 Nice view of the pool and the hillside out side the sliding door. Big king size bed and satellite TV. It's nice to lay in bed and hear the rain falling on the... More

The woods is a nice hotel located in downtown Guerneville near all the restaurants and bars. We stayed in one of the penthouse units which was clean and had a very nice bathroom. It was great to have a refrigerator In our room. They have a very nice clothing optional swimming pool. Guerneville is located in the Russian River area... More

It was perhaps even more of a joy to return to The Woods again this year. We always stay here during Lazy Bear Weekend, where The Woods is simply the only place I want to be. Even moreso than in previous years, I confess to loving the envy I hear when I tell people that "I stay here." Michael and... More

We loved this resort. We have stayed as R3 down the street in the past and have always complained about the loud noise and partying that went on in the bar late in the evenings. My partner decided to try out the Woods Resort and I have to say...we'll be back!!! We stayed in Cabin 18 which was awesome! The... More

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.
