“Totally remodeled luxury”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

I came here as a child 45 years ago, and it was your standard motel. Now it has been totally redone and is luxurious. Lots of pillows, great TV and Wifi and super comfortable beds. And to relax, there are old wooden rocking chairs outside every room. We ended up spending two nights when we only intended to stay one.

The most comfortable bed ever! We have stayed here twice, both times room 116 and it's amazing. So nicely decorated and clean and comfortable. We never want to leave when we are in Woodstock. The staff are so friendly. we had no power when we woke up and we still didn't want to leave! Great value for your money!

Room Tip: Room 116 is awesome, but we have only ever stayed in that room

The Shire is only about two blocks from downtown Woodstock.
The rooms are VERY clean and comfortable, bath had the best towels I have ever seen in a hotel/motel, the bed was super comfortable, wireless service was great, the people at the desk and employee's are very personable and helpful and
the room rate is reasonable.

Our room had a beautiful river view and the Shire will be my location of choice whenever I am in the area!

The bed was so comfortable and the room was beautifully decorated. The manager was very friendly and so helpful. He recommended a restaurant down the street that we walked to and it was fantastic. I'd stay again.

I had made reservations at a motel in Woodstock Vt and was not able to confirm a few days before, like I always do. I arrived at my "reserved" motel to find the place was all locked up..no one around.....What to do?? We drove back into town and with luck, stopped at the Shire Riverview Motel to get a Beautiful, clean and spacious room...It had a beautiful view of the river and mountains..Tanya at the front desk was very gracious and friendly. It was a much better room than I would have had at the "closed" motel..I'm glad the other place was closed. I really enjoyed my weekend in Vermont. The Shire Riverview IS the place to stay in Woodstock VT...

Far more than we expected! Clean and comfortable with an amazing view of the river. We sat in chairs riverside each evening relaxing and just being in the moment. Very affordable!

Room Tip: Ask for the room on the end near the river-the best room in the place I believe. Also the best view!

We stopped over in Woodstock on our way to NYC. Originally sought a B&B, but they were outlandishly expensive for a one-night quick sleep... so we checked out the Shire Riverview, on the advice of a local. It was excellent! For $98, we got a very spacious room with all the amenities, including a SUPER comfy king-sized bed and a gorgeous view of the "shire" behind the inn. Not only that, but the next morning I needed to print a parking coupon for NYC from my laptop... the front desk staff were very accommodating, and let me use their printer! Overall rating: EXCELLENT. We will be back. Woodstock is VERY beautiful too!
