Clean and pretty up-to-date rooms. I really enjoyed the pool area, towels could be a bit bigger. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Hotel is right on the trails and in close proximity to pretty much whatever Houlton has to offer.

It had been years since I had stayed here but found myself in town again for work. I was satisfied with this stay, my room was in the remodeled section and I found it to be adequate, clean, warm and a comfy bed. The Wi-Fi worked well and I enjoyed the microwave and refrigerator. Would stay here again in the... More

We used to stay here every year on our way up to Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. The Motor Inn was fine for a night's stay - nothing special, but a place to put your head down and get some rest, especially if you get a room on the side away from the road. Free wi-fi is good. And, there's... More

On the last night of our Girls Trip to Maine we decided to stay in Houlton. We enlisted the help of Google to find out which hotels were in the town. We stopped at the Shiretown and liked the price so we decided to check it out. The building we were given a room in was a rebuild after a... More

I have stayed at this Inn more times than I can count for business trips. I always stay in the newer part and am happy to say it is always clean and is in good condition. I have alot of anxiety about staying in public places and have been able to stay there without complaint. The staff is friendly and... More

Needs lots of updating. Non-smoking room smelled like a smoking room. Just bearable enough to rest ones head for the night after a 10 hour drive. Looked like room could have used a vacuum once over. Great location near border and convenience like a Tim Horton and Walmart close by

Unfortunate event (funeral) brought my family to town- a 600 mile car ride......booked a block of 5 rooms in the same hallway (around 123-137). Despite mixed reviews, our stay was comfortable- rooms were clean. Continental breakfast convenient for us...but also Tim Horton's and Walmart too. Wish we could have enjoyed more of the amenities.

Stayed here on my way home to Canada on a stormy night. Very friendly service and clean room. Maybes bit noisy from gas station across the street but was too tired to hear the noise. Would stay here again.

Not much in Houlton but this place was very decent, clean but dated. The staff were nice and accomodating. The Lounge was loacted at the indoor pool which is heated so it was a bit warm but then again it was snowing out.
