My partner and I just returned home after 4 nights at The Woods. The landscaping is very nice (great container gardening), the place is clean, and our room was fun - raised cottage overlooking the pool. We were deciding between here and the Russian River Resort (RRR). They are nothing alike. If you are looking for a quiet resort and not a party scene - but close to everything - stay here. If you want the bar, noise, music, and somewhat seedy guests, stay at the RRR. My suggestion is to stay at the Woods and hang out at RRR during the day or at night for fun. The only "issues" we had with The Woods were minor. There is no continental breakfast but the rooms have kitchenettes, so go to the local Safeway and get breakfast food for your stay. The pool wasn't open until close to 10AM some days and closes early. There is not hot tub anymore. There is no amplified music by the pool (can be good or bad depending on your preference). It was almost too quiet but because everything is so close in this town, you can spend some relaxing time here and head across the street to see what insanity is going on at the RRR or the local bar on Main Street at any time. We met some really nice people at The Woods and would be happy to stay again. The staff was helpful when you approached them but weren't much of a presence at all, unlike most resorts we've visited in towns like Key West. This is a quiet town and The Woods is a perfect spot.
