I have stayed at the Woodlands every other weekend for the past year and could not be any more satisfied in this place than I am. Mitch is a total doll, and has accommodated me with anything I have ever needed. I am a faithful patron, and will always be. My getaway. I love the atmosphere at every bar there,...

I loved the Woodlands inn! The place itself was HUGE. It is so misleading because from the outside it doesn't look too big. They had an amazing sushi place that my boyfriend and I ate at when we first arrived. We enjoyed the hot tub and pool area as well. The workers were very nice and friendly. The drinks at...

This was our first visit to this resort. It is only an hour away from us so it provided a convenient overnight location following a comedy show so we did not have to drive home late at night. The pictures showed very rural views only to find it next to the highway. We quickly found that the backside of the...

Dear Mrs. Hopstetter: Thank you for sharing your experience regarding your recent stay. Your feedback will be used to make necessary changes in the way we shuttle people to/from the arena. I believe if we drive into the arena it takes much longer to drop off because of traffic concerns. We will examine and change if necessary. Thank you, Ross...

I went here with a group of 3 couples. We LOVED the pool and jaccuzi. The facilities were very nice and clean. Breakfast was complimentary every morning and actually GOOD! My only complaint was that the bed could have been a little better. But besides that I was pleased. I would definitely recommend it!

This was our first visit to the Woodlands and we loved every minute of it. The hotel has absolutely everything you need to have a great weekend away.

“Do not stay in the tower rooms, they are small and do not have a nice view. Also elevator is close to all of those rooms.”

“Do not get a room in the main aisle (very noisy). The tower corner rooms off of Rt 315 are very noisy from traffic.”

“** Ask for streamside or courtyard view with balcony for the best view. While it is located on the side of a highway, you don't ever see the highway again - you feel like you are nestled in the woods.”
