“Sophisticated warmth”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

506 On the River is gorgeous...the exterior is rather plain, but the interior is very special; it was decorated in a very sophisticated and warm style. I could have spent hours just looking around the bar/dining room. The breakfast is amazing - everything fresh and homemade. Dinners were good and the bartender poured a great dirty martini. The room was really nice. Totally clean, nice view, very modern yet warm. We'll definitely return and highly recommend.

My husband and I stayed here for a midweek night in May to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. We were shocked to be upgraded to the penthouse suite!!! It was GORGEOUS and we felt spoiled! I guess it was during their soft opening so there were a lot of little things that weren't finished yet, but they didn't bother us. Max was incredible and helped us at the front desk, brought us a delicious anniversary dessert, cooked us a wonderful breakfast, and was so friendly and open.

I think when all the little details (and big details-pool, landscaping...) are completed it will be a great addition to Woodstock and an alternative to all the small B and B's in the area.

The dining/bar area is what we really fell in love with. The best description we could come up with for the decor is "rustic chic." While looking very modern/spacious/clean, they've also filled the space with old Vermont antiques and have framed hundred-year-old newspaper clippings from the town's local newspaper. It also doesn't hurt that they had my favorite beer on tap – Long Trail Limbo. We loved our meal and highly recommend the asparagus tempura.

Very comfortable stay in our room on the first floor. The bed was just right and we woke up to the sounds of birds chirping and a calm, peaceful, sunny day overlooking a vast green lawn leading up to the gentle river. I don't know any other hotel in Woodstock where you can wake up like that while still only being about a mile outside of town.

We will definitely be back.

I've stayed at On The River several times now and will most certainly return. The rooms are immaculate, comfortable and well appointed. Deck with rocking chairs looks out over the woods and gorgeous river. Minutes to Woodstock center. Wonderful bar and dining room, breakfast included in your stay. Top notch staff. You will no be disappointed.

My family loved our stay here. The rooms are immaculate, the beds are amazing, the view is beautiful, and the lounge/restaurant area is stylish and comfortable. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. Our kids loved playing in the toddler playroom as well as the game room lounge. They also got to play out on the lawn while we lounged in adirondack chairs in the gazebo overlooking the river. While there are still some finishing touches that are being completed, it's still a great place to stay. You can tell they love all things Vermont though their eclectic decor. Given the other options in Woodstock, 506 On The River is a really great value- this new hotel is exactly what the area needs and we look forward to staying here again!

We picked 506 based on Trip Advisor Reviews and found them to be very accurate. 506 On The River is a new hotel/inn just outside Woodstock, VT.
We had a very enjoyable one night stay after a long day of driving. It is obvious that there is still work to be done, but once the landscaping is complete, this will be a delightful place to stay. The decor is right out of Pottery Barn and the lounge and restaurant is delightful albeit with a limited menu. We really appreciate the Manager honoring the Grand Opening special room rate and hope to return in the Fall.

I was excited by the website and the great photos and so booked despite the premium price tag but felt a bit cheated even with the introductory rate (which was still +$200). The bar/lounge/restaurant that is the "big attraction" on the website was actually closed. No real explanation except that the hotel seemed very quiet. Not cool. The finishings in the rooms were a bit cheap (towels, no Kleenex, shampoo/bath products) though the bed and bedding were lovely and comfy. The rooms themselves were typical of any Hampton Inn and very clean.

The breakfast was a buffet ... All fine but the eggs were cold from sitting out. After eating, we noticed someone else getting served french toast but no one offered us anything a la carte or suggested this was even an option. Not sure what was up with that.

I will tip my hand to the staff especially the front desk / night staff who were very helpful -- opening the bar/lounge briefly for insistent, curious and thirsty guests. And for making sure all was well after checking in. Very much appreciated.

Overall, this place has potential but a simple and clear message on the website that makes clear the hotel is still in "pilot stage" would be helpful in terms of expectation management. There are many kinks to work out. I do hope it finds it's groove as the potential is definitely there. In its current state, it isn'tj good value. AND the landscaping especially in the rear is a major work in progress so don't expect any strolls on the grounds just yet. Book with your eyes wide open and otherwise enjoy.

By the way ... It is not in town so when the restaurant is closed, it's back in the car to find a spot to eat.
