Contacting Woods prior to or upon your arrival
- TEXTING: The WOODS main phone number (250.629.3353) is a cell phone. Texting is a great idea if you have a time-sensitive message you want us to know. We are often busy checking in other guests, working in the restaurant or doing other jobs around the site and texting is a great way for us to see your immediate message rather than a voice call.
- We are often in various areas of the 7.3-acre site. When you arrive we have a new sign on the restaurant that states either “Check-in at Motel” or Check-in Here” (Restaurant). Please proceed to whichever is displayed. During weekends we are often down at the restaurant and can check you in there rather than up at the Motel. We also have a digital iPhone system so can mobile check you in and take you up to your unit.

Arrivals & Departures
Check-in time for any unit is not before 3:00 pm. Early check-ins will not be permitted unless discussed and approved in advance and always at the discretion of WOODS management. All our units are unique and specifically booked and often require a turnover prior to your arrival. You can check with us by emailing to email@example.com prior to your arrival time to see if your unit is ready.
Check out time for all rental units/rooms is at 11:00 am. This is strictly enforced unless a late checkout is arranged and approved by WOODS management.
A full day’s rate will be applied to unauthorized late checkouts. Please be courteous to arriving guests and vacate your unit or room on time. Most of our units are unique to the booking guest and cannot be switched on arrival. Therefore, we have to be strict on check out times to prepare the unit for the arriving guest.
Changes After Check-In
We will do our best to accommodate any changes you request to your rental unit/room once you are registered. It is important to note that changes cannot be guaranteed and can only be accommodated if a suitable rental unit/room is available. Availability may be limited and pricing may have to be adjusted depending on the unit you change to.
Late Arrivals & No-Shows
If you are not going to be able to arrive at WOODS on the day of arrival, but you still wish to retain your reservation, you must email or phone the resort office.
If you do not arrive at the resort by 11:00 am on the day after your scheduled day of arrival, and if you have not contacted the resort office to inform them of your late arrival, you will be deemed a No-Show. When you are deemed a No-Show, your reservation will be cancelled with no refund and your rental unit/room will be made available to other guests.
A Rental Security Deposit is required at the time of check in to protect WOODS Resort’s property and the enjoyment of other guests. WOODS Resort is a family resort, and while enjoyment is encouraged, discretion and moderation are required by all patrons to ensure that everyone has a fun, safe and enjoyable vacation. The Rental Security is held in a preauthorization pattern on your credit card during your holiday. It should never appear on your statement unless detailed in the following circumstances.
A preauthorized $200 damage & noise disturbance deposit will be processed at check-in. You are responsible to ensure that your rental unit/room is left in the same shape as when you arrived. Any damaged or lost items (i.e. remote controls, pillows, towels, dishes & cutlery) and/or noise disturbance complaints from neighbouring guests will be assessed and charged accordingly. Extra charges will be added for any rental unit needing excessive cleaning. Once the rental unit/room has been inspected and found to be in the same condition as arrival, the credit card information will be released.
Smoking is strictly forbidden inside all rental units/rooms. If smoking is evident in any of the rental units/rooms an automatic $250.00 smoking-related cleaning fee will be applied to your account and if it persists after the first offence, immediate eviction can be enforced.
