I love this location and it is really roomy and you feel as if you are at home! This is the best hotel/motel I'v ever been to! A great destination really! I would love to stay here verry long but this motel is great for short over-night trips! Obviously a 5-star motel!

This is a very small old fashioned motel. The accommodations are not fancy but the price is very reasonable. The owners are genuinely wonderful people and a pleasure to speak with. If you're looking for a quirky, off the beaten path sort of place this is it. They have animals to feed and lots of cute details to explore in... More

Shamrock is a beautiful, peaceful location with wonderful hosts! Within reach of so many hiking trails and river beds this motel offers you the best of everything. The rooms are clean and the pool is fantastic.

I have been coming to New Hampshire since 1993 as my BFF lives here. I spent many years in her mudroom, but then her husband hijacked it for a honey rendering room! I found this lovely place and have been staying here since. I know NH like the back of my hand, so when I found myself looking for new... More

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...

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
