Front desk staff friendly, helpful. Two good restaurants on site, Bar and Nightclub crowded on the weekend we were there. Shuttle bus service to Mohegan Sun Casino. Two pools, one indoor, one outdoor. Only drawback, signage to rooms confusing.

My husband booked this hotel for our anniversary because he thought it was in the woods where we could go hiking (cause that's just what we do). But upon arrival, when the GPS had reached the destination, his face deflated because the inn was right across the street from a car dealership. So at that point we were not expecting...

My best friend just had her reception at the woodlands and everything the woodlands did was perfect! The food was excellent and beautifully presented.

I recently stayed overnight as the last night of a bus trip. We got the best night's sleep of the trip. The room, in the Tower, was very nice, with the exception of no counter space in the bathroom. Very awkward trying to use our toiletries.

Lexington, Kentucky
Reviewed 3 June 2014

This facility is great for those seeking lodging close to the casino. If you are interested in in-town activities, this is not the place to stay. Nor is this a good location for handicapped lodgers; too many steps and too long a walk to the restaurants. Restaurants offer mediocre food, but service was good and friendly.

“** 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.”
