“Don't bother”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2006

We did not like the Shiretown. We needed a place to stay while snowmobiling and were not familiar with Houlton and this was the first place we found.
Rooms were less than clean, bedsheets were dirty.
Will not go back here again.

I was up in Houlton for the holidays and found the Shiretown to be an excellent motel. It was clean and neat. The hotel has an indoor pool and an excellent restaurant. I'd recommend anyone stay here when visiting Houlton.

I had an awful experience at Shiretown. I was kept awake by the drunks leaving the bar until the early morning hours. The door to my room had been broken into previously and had no chain lock. The overall condition of the room was not what I would consider clean. Carpets were not "barefoot" quality. It was pretty disgusting. E-mail me if you have any questions.
