We came there without a reservation. Our host was kind to show us all their rooms according to their price range -even if you took the cheapest, the experience would be great -access to the pool, coffee in the morning and friendly service. Of course size of the room differs and we chose the biggest which is actually just about... More

This place is a complete fraud, they pretend to be this luxury resort but it's a complete dump that costs 350 dollars a night, motel 6 is far better than this. The rooms are in complete disrepair without much privacy, the sheets have stains, there are spiders and critters behind every blind, there is hair from previous clients everywhere, aside... More

rrwoods, Owner at The Woods Resort at the Russian River, responded to this review

Because this review is so unlike our other reviews, we think it is best to reply. We well remember this guest as it was a couple with two kids who stayed four nights during an event weekend. Their parents stayed with us as well in separate accommodations; they were overtly kind and complimentary about The Woods. We maintain a high... More

Staying at The Woods has become a tradition for me. I come to the River for peace and quiet and that's what The Woods has to offer- and all within walking distance of the shops and restaurants of Guerneville. Nothing is more relaxing than lounging around the pool after a morning of hiking in Armstrong Woods. I usually stay in... More

My friends and I stayed here for my 40th bday weekend. We had the best time. Michael and Matt were so helpful, from setting up tables and grills for us to use, to making sure everyone was comfortable in their rooms. Everyone said they had the best time. I also was told by most of the guests that they had... More

Trying to find accommodations while attending BottleRock Napa music festival proved quite difficult. Both because of the festival and Memorial Day weekend, if you could find a hotel / motel, the price for a room in even an ordinary place was ridiculously expensive. Even though an hour and a half drive to the festival, staying in the Russian River area... More

I am so impressed, not only with the variety of accommodations, but with the cleanliness of the entire establishment and the friendly staff and service. This was my third year with them and I am looking forward to #4!!! We attend an event in Forrestville each year and the drive between the event and the resort is just lovely.

This is our second visit to The Woods and it was delightful way to end a hectic week! The staff is very friendly and helpful; Michael even called the day before to confirm our arrival and ask if we might want a cabin with a fireplace instead of the one we chose. Maybe next time! We don't roll out of... More

Booked a room here to attend a wedding with reception held at the r3. We wanted something a little quieter so opted to stay at the Woods rather than r3. What a great place to stay! Wonderful rosebeds, awesome pool and the beds....ahhhh, the most comfy ever. We stayed in the Penthouse 2 room, it is a little small but... More

This is exactly what we needed for a post burning man decompression. This is the week after Labor Day weekend so the town was quiet and the resort was rather empty which is convenient in that particular case. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The clothing optional bit is of course a bonus. The only thing off was that... More

A great time to visit. Locals abound and everyone in town is busy building floats for the parade! The Woods is a champion contender and always has a spectacular float. The resort itself is charming with all the amenities one could hope for including a complete kitchenette. Spacious and comfortable rooms (we stayed in a 2 bedroom cottage with 2... More
