If you don't mind uncomfortable beds and strong cleaning solution odors, the Best Western Shadow Inn might be just the hotel for you.
If the above two problems were absent, I would have rate this property at 4 stars (or bullets, or whatever Tripadvisor calls their ratings), based on their reasonable room rates and the level of amenities.
The decor is a bit dated and there aren't the modern amenities one expects of this type of hotel (no bedside plugs or USB stations for charging, and few electrical outlets in general.
Staff was great and room cleanliness was as expected. It seems to be in a noisy location, but I slept with earplugs, so the noise didn't bother me.
Breakfast was typical for hotels at this price level: waffle maker, several cereals, fruit, yogurt, toast, bagels, hard boiled eggs, etc. On the plus side, they had a few hot items you don't always see: scrambled eggs and biscuits/gravy, but on the negative side, they advertised donuts on their in-room breakfast menu, but there were none. As a note, if they advertise donuts on their menu, I would have only given them credit for having fresh, individual donuts, not boxes of pre-packaged donuts from the grocery store.
I plan on staying overnight in Woodland at least once a year, but my future stays won't be at the Shadow Inn. less

Thank you for staying with us and thank you for taking the time to share your experience with others. Please know that we are in the process of changing all of the beds in our rooms as we prepare for our renovation in early 2020. That renovation will bring with it all of the modern amenities that we are currently missing (bedside outlets and USB Charging Stations) as well as a more up to date style. I am glad to see that your room was clean and you did get a chance to enjoy our breakfast offerings. We hope that you give us another chance after the renovation has been completed.
