“Good for a Golf Outing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

This is a nice property but quite pricy for what you get. The rooms are ok but a little tired, at least the Internet is fast and free. Naturally they have nice Kohler fixtures. Their light breakfast is ok but no better than your average Hampton Inn but for a high priced hotel...not so good.

the front desk was often short staffed so you wait for almost anything. They have good shuttle service to Blackwolf Run and the American club but only hourly service to Whistling Straights.

I certainly would not stay here if it were not for the proximity to golf.

)Dear Alan S,
Thank you for sharing your thoughts about the Inn on Woodlake. I would like to apologize for your underwhelming breakfast and wait time at the front desk. We have added additional front desk associates and trained them to handle more demand. I hope you are able to return and experience the new and delicious breakfast options our chef is cooking up. We also offer many other amenities such as our Sports Core facility which is a full-service health club, private beach with lake access, and shuttle service to any Kohler property.
If you choose to return to the property I hope you are able to take advantage of all that the Inn on Woodlake has to offer.
Best wishes,

This is a smaller hotel in Kohler; I was there for a meeting and found the front desk staff very helpful when asking them for dining recommendations. They were also welcoming and descriptive when checking in. The rooms were modern and had great bathroom amenities (jetted shower heads, good pressure, etc).. the TV sound was very cool in that they had it routed into ceiling speakers and into the bathroom.... Nothing like laying in bed and watching a show with stereo sound. my only complaint is that I had a room with a door to an adjoining room... I could hear my neighbor a bit too clearly speaking on a cell phone..

Stayed here with friends in early May 2014. Place looks new, rooms were clean, shower was awesome with 5 Kohler shower heads. Free breakfast was good; better than expected. Down the street from the American Club, and about a mile from the river golf courses.

Not as pricey as the American Club, and not as fancy. The rooms were comfortable and clean. It's great to have little shops to browse that are close with also a few restaurants and grocery store. Front desk was very friendly and made us feel welcome.
Had a wonderful view of the lake, wish it had been warm enough to sit outside.
I'd be negligent is I didn't mention the spa like shower. Amazing!!! LOVED IT!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the lake show a lovely, serene setting.

We revisited the inn on woodlake in April. This time we had a lakeside view. The room has been updated and of course has the latest Kohler sinks and faucets. This year we discovered hiking paths located around the lake and through the local neighborhood forest areas. The breakfast remains outstanding. Service topnotch as usual. We will return.

Weekend getaway from Chicago and were able to get a Groupon like discount for a night at the Inn. It was fantastic. Situated close to all the things at Kohler you'd like to do, the main attraction for us was the design in the room. We actually took away from it some ideas we'd like to do in our own house. I would say the only downside would be the day we were there they were having problems with breakfast due to new kitchen staff. We weren't all that hungry so it wasn't that big of a deal. Can't wait to go back when the weather is nicer and we can enjoy the beautiful scenery.

I decided on Kohler and the American Club Resort for a weekends anniversary getaway and it was the perfect choice. We stayed at the Inn on Woodlake and from the reservation through the stay I was impressed. I did mention it was my anniversary when making the reservation and that was obviously noted immediately. We were welcomed with a "happy anniversary" at check in as well as a personal note and bottle of champagne in the room. The room itself was very well appointed. We stayed in a lakeside king which was plenty spacious and a nice patio off the back. The bathrooms...well...it's Kohler so you know it's going to be top notch. Full body spray shower and very nice Kohler Spa soaps and amenities. The rooms are amazingly sound proof. Never once heard any hallway noise and throughout the night we had considerable thunderstorms with major thunder and the noise was never too much. The sound was quelled just enough to make the sound pleasant. (Who doesn't love the sound of a thunderstorm)

We will be back without a doubt. Special occasion or not, this is the best weekend getaway you will experience.
