Lately when visiting Mohegan Sun Casino I've stayed at a chain hotel. Hadn't stayed at the Woodlands for two years. It was just as nice as I remembered it. Very pleasant staff. Extras such as made to order omelets and a tremendous breakfast selection. The sound and sight of the beautiful stream from your private balcony almost makes you forget...

A friend recommended this location as her family loves it. My family of two adults, two kids, and two dogs had a great two night stay there. I thought the price of the room was quite fair. We ate at both restaurants which were great, and enjoyed the wonderful breakfast buffet. The facility was clean. The kids enjoyed the pool...

The woodlands was a great hotel. The indoor pool was beautiful & the huge hot tub was even better. I stayed 2 nights with my boyfriend for a getaway. The room was small but cozy. It was clean. My only complaint would be the bed pillows, they were lumpy & soft. There were alot of steps up & down through...

This is my third time staying here and really enjoy it. If you go during the week there is a free happy hour from 5-6 and free breakfast. The amenities are great including the exercise room, swimming pool, and whirlpool.

The Woodlands is one of the better places to stay. Great for a couple's get-a-way or a family stay. Something here for everyone. Free shuttle service to the Mohegan Sun Casino. You are in the city, yet how the hotel is laid out and set back slightly you feel like you are at an outdoor retreat.

I chose this hotel for a quick weekend getaway for my husband and I. The pics online looked great and the price was reasonable. The staff was friendly and the pool and jacuzzi pretty impressive. However, our room left for some wanting. There was wallpaper falling off of the walls and the bathroom is in need of a make over....

Called a few hotels looking to check pricing (beyond standard online searches), and this seemed like the best deal when traveling with a pet. They already have different pricing for pet friendly rooms vs not, and I was sent a confirmation for that higher priced room, after I'd made it very clear we were in fact bringing a pet. There's...
