I have used this facility for many years. It has an old-style resort atmosphere. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Food and drink available on site. Great meeting rooms and grounds. What I like most are the people. People at the front desk (Casey, Jenny, Angie) regularly impress me. Attentive, friendly, problem solving professionals. I stay here when on business... More

I stayed in this hotel for a conference. The staff are friendly and helpful. There is a large pond in the center of the hotel for a walk in a loop. There's a fitness center. Restaurant has decent food. Located near a Costco store for last minute shopping. A very pleasant overall experience. Will stay here again.

At check-in, the staff was friendly. The Property was clean all around. If I were to complain, I have none against the management. But, outside entities was a little noisy. Namely the trains going by at night blowing their whistles.

We stay here once a month during the summer for the concert series. It's our perfect date night. The staff is helpful and friendly. The food and drinks are good and reasonably priced. This is an older property, but it's clean and well kept. Nine years in a row and we will be back!

Had a great visit to the hotel. Room was clean and quiet. Got a 2nd floor overlooking the lake. Great view, will come back again. Went to see a concert that was subsequently cancelled. Glad we did not cancel the reservation.

We stayed at Woodlake because my husband was attending a state veteran's conference there. The "hotel" is more of a motel as you park outside of your room (if you can find a place to park-more of that later). Coming in from I-5, we saw only a industrial area nearby, with no shopping or restaurants. Coming back from shopping, I... More

Outside entrance. During my stay, the block of rooms where I was staying was all bikers. They congregated outside of my room and were loud. Feel like I checked in to a place that charges by the hour. Disgusting. Even if they weren't there, the room has no sound proofing at all, you can hear every car on the road.
