Stayed here after a wedding nearby. Large, comfortable, pleasant room, friendly staff. Lovely location along the river. Our room looked out over the river and a most pleasant vista. Nice porch for watching the world go by. A little pricey but we were there just at the start of leaf season so I guess everything was expensive. Downtown is an...

I expected more, because of the photos on the hotel's website and the price. The place is old and needs some renovation, espacialy the bathrooms. The stuff is nice. The location and the river view don't worth the money, sorry...

Booked a River View room with owner on phone in April. Arrived Oct 7, no River view room. Gal at check in said it happens all the time...owner just moves people with no 'as booked' commitment. Be wary, owner lies! Roadside rooms suck! Especially for the money!

Luxury river view room on second floor with balcony overlooking pristine river and mountain view. Nowhere better for enjoying glass of wine early evening and coffee in morning, as we caught great weather for foliage viewing :) Room could not have been nicer and we've stayed at the Woodstock Inn three times....smaller rooms with NO view. Working gas fireplace added...

We stayed in the Shire Motel Cottage Rooms, which have a large jacuzzi, seperate shower/toilet area. Gas fireplace, rocking chairs on the deck, king bed and plenty of room and seating. Affordable price and located within walking distance of downtown Woodstock, Vermont. Highly recommend it to others.

Woodstock, Vermont may be the perfect little town. We visited for a wedding and stayed at the Shire, very clean hotel not a big place which makes it nice and beautiful views. Across the street is a little grocery stores and it's a short walk to town for shopping and resturants.

I liked this little place. Upon check-in I wasn’t pleased with my “premium” river view room because it didn’t have a patio or any outdoor access. I asked to switch rooms and was offered a “standard” room with deck and river view that in my opinion was a better room, even though it was less expensive. Go figure. Point is,...

Liked the look of this whilst driving past, Allocated room 1111 on the ground floor with a view to the rear overlooking the river. It is a bedroom with a King size bed, 32" TV, free Wi-Fi, AC, two comfortable easy chairs, a writing desk and a sideboard. There is a fridge but no microwave and also no tea/coffee making...

Quiet comfortable rooms with views overlooking the river. A convenient location just a short walk from the main streets of Woodstock. The decor was a little dated but very clean. Replace the single serving coffee maker on the second floor landing with something more efficient.

My husband, myself, and one friend stayed here for a wedding that was located at the Inn. This was more economical, and still within walking distance to the wedding and all of downtown. We had no complaints. Check-in and check-out were smooth, the staff friendly, our room clean, the location perfect and the price good. We enjoyed the large common...
