“Amazing bargain in Woodstock”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

It seems that pretty much everything in and around Woodstock is pricey but this motel is not and it's in a wonderful location: 5 min. walk to "downtown" shops and eateries. We had a spacious room on the ground floor. It was clean and quiet. Check out the picture taken out our window! I loved that the door into the room was a double French door with floor to ceiling curtains inside. We had light from the 4 windows facing the river and from the entry doors.

Room Tip: No need to lug bags up to the second floor. You can park right in front of your room.

The Shire is clean and has an excellent location in downtown Woodstock. The prices are fair. Both King Bed rooms and rooms with Double beds are available. The employees are kind and friendly. I recommend this motel.

We chose to stay at the Riverview for our visit to Vermont for Wassail Weekend. The rates were
reasonable and the room clean and comfortable. Nice view from back door. Very convenient location. There is a grocery store directly across the street and we walked into town for dining and shopping. The staff was friendly and quick to take care of the parking lot when we awoke to about a foot of snow. We would definitely recommend.

Pretty little inn with a beautiful view of the river. Room was nicely furnished, beds were comfortable. No breakfast included, but you can't beat the price for that area. People were very friendly when we arrived.

Room was very nice if a bit on the old-fashioned side. The town is lovely and within walking distance. Friendly staff, we arrived pretty late and they left the key for us. Coffee and tea available on the second floor daily. Nice views even in winter, imagine it would be really nice in other seasons. Would stay again.

Was on a budget when we traveled to Woodstock for a wedding and we choose the shire for location and price. We were delighted to find beautiful, comfortable rooms and a friendly staff. It was such a great change from chain hotels! Plan on returning for our anniversary

This is a very pleasant place to stay in Woodstock, at a very reasonable price. Our room and bathroom were clean and comfortable and appeared to have been freshly painted. Although this a motel, you feel like you're in a higher end hotel when you step into the room.

Our cancellation policy is outlined on every emailed confirmation. The fee for a cancellation within 14 days of your arrival is the one night deposit. However, we offer EVERY customer a credit for that one night deposit good toward a future stay. Also if we can rent the room we will gladly refund your deposit. Lucie D please call me here at the Shire and I will make sure that this matter is resolved to your satisfaction.
