Staying at the Shamrock Motel for a weekend was a unique and great experience to say the least. The room had a very rustic and vintage feel to it and was incredibly well kept and clean. It comes with a full kitchen and felt completely comfortable and home like. I had such an incredible weekend staying in Thornton, NH and... More

After reading all the great reviews, I really wanted to love the Shamrock Motel. The proprietors were lovely and it is located in a beautiful area. The room was WAY more aged than expected and could have used some basic maintenance to bring it to a more acceptable level, including cleanliness. I think the many highly positive reviews are from...

We take pride in that guests become friends. This is an accomplishment that many larger establishments cannot achieve. We welcome all reviews negative and positive; the... More

This is the kind of home-away-from-home you're almost afraid to share the praise it so deserves with those who are looking for a restful, comfy, quaint and relaxing getaway for fear of never being able to book another reservation there yourself because so many others will have now beat you to it. What made this primarily cabin venue (but there's... More

Just returned yesterday from New Hampshire, and a wonderful stay at the Shamrock, what a great little place. We rented a cottage, with full kitchen, two bedrooms, spacious living room and nice little screened porch, just right for sitting outside enjoying the fresh autumn air and beautiful views. The hosts are wonderful, and eager to answer any questions. and there... More

Cute cottages overlooking beautiful mountains, quiet get-away, and the owners are very nice and accommodating. Near lot of places that you need to visit when you going to NH. Very Close to hiking trails

Let me begin this review with the caveat that we are a Marriott family. If there's a Marriott in the area or close enough, we will stay there. That being said, we wanted a hotel/motel with more of the country ambiance to reflect our road trip. After a lot of searching, I found the Shamrock Motel. We stayed here for... More

Just came back from spending 4 nights here on our family vacation. The owners are wonderful, very friendly and helpful. Their prices are great. Our kids loved the clean pool, the animals, and playing in the shed. We really enjoyed our stay and didn't want to leave! Would definitely stay again!

I stayed at the Shamrock last August but just got to writing a review right now. The motel is just a wonderful place. I stayed in cabin #4 and it had the perfect rustic feel. I understand that this may not be the ascetic for everyone, but I greatly enjoyed the knotty pine walls and the coziness. The owners of... More

Amazing experience with my family of four. Very pleasant host and the place is a steal. The rooms are very comfy and neat. No mess or untidy area, right by the highway. The breakfast they offer is simple but hits the right spot. For couple of days the place is perfect for couples or family or just by yourself. The... More

We came back for our second annual visit this past July. Our stay was peaceful and pleasant. The proprietors are welcoming and kind, as well as knowledgeable about the White Mountain range with lots of tips and insights about different locations to visit for views or for a good workout! Our room was spotless, cozy, and a comfortable temperature. The... More
