When I pulled up to the Shire, I have to admit that despite all the great reviews, I was feeling a little concerned. From the outside, it looks like your typical motel. However, the room was really nice, spacious, well lit (important because I like to read in the evening) very clean, and relatively quiet. The bed was very comfortable.... More

Shire Riverview is located on the river in Woodstock. It is about 3 blocks from all of downtown Woodstock. It is across the street from a supermarket. So you have a lovely view and walking convenience. The inn has free Wi-Fi as well. Shire does not have a breakfast so take that into account when pricing rooms. I would suggest... More

We came to Woodstock without a reservation, which I hate to do. After looking at a B&B, and pausing outside the glamorous Woodstock Inn, I realized that comfort ruled over quaint. At the Shire, we found both. We really wanted two beds after a long adventure with family, and we got that and more. Comfortable beds, charming decor and a... More

Stayed 2 nights with my sister and it was very nice. We thought it was very clean, the beds were comfy, the shower pressure was great. They had coffee/tea out every morning. Little fridge in the room. It is on a noisy street, but it didn't bother us at all. Loved sitting on the porch, having a drink and watching... More

This hotel is reasonably priced, with friendly staff and with easy walking to the center of town. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it. Children friendly and right on the river. It's not luxurious but nice, clean and with good coffee in the morning on the upstairs balcony overlooking the river.

The Shire Riverview Motel was wonderful! Our room was so spacious and comfortable, and the location was convenient . The desk staff was very helpful and pleasant, which was so appreciated ! The view from the porch was really spectacular. A note of caution: If you get a second floor room, which we did, you have to be willing to... More

Noise of furniture being moved in the room above us started at 7 a.m. (4 a.m. Our California time!). Then came the hammering of something like a carpet installer above us. Not the way to start a vacations. Asked the front desk for some compensation for the imperfect night and they looked at me as if I were crazy. Finally... More

The noise occurred at 8:30 AM, the rug installer was given the ok to start by mistake and the guest was given an apology and a one night refund. More

Accommodation is ok, there's a funny smell in the room and the decor is old fashioned. The rooms which have a river facing porch are probably the better choice. The special deal which, at time of booking, looked like I was getting 2 nights for the price of one turned out too good to be true - I didn't insist... More

Very nice room, large comfortable bed and jacuzzi. Cleanliness could've been a tad better but overall very nice. Centrally located to many restaurants and attractions. Have stayed here a few times and would do so again.

Excellent service and a great value. Within walking distance to many nice restaurants and shops, as well as to the town green. Staff are happy to give recommendations on restaurants and such, if you're looking for something in particular. Also a very short drive from the Marsh - Billings - Rockefeller National Historical Park.
