“Miss it!”
Reviewed 20 April 2012

I've stayed here many times while visiting family while growing up and even as I got older and went off on my own. It's a great location with friendly staff. They often have breakfast up and ready from what I remember. It's been a while, but I'm looking forward to showing my boyfriend around this quaint little town. The room was pretty chilly last time but there was a great view over the water. It's normally nice and quiet. Always very clean.
There's a deck at the restaurant level where you can sit and view the scenery. Of course it has a marshy smell here and there, but you're staying on a waterway. How can you complain?

The lighthouse suites are impeccable, although there was a hugh storm during one visit and the rain leaked into the room. It's since been repaired.

A wonderfully clean and fresh room with a great view. Only two complaints: (1) when we arrived and for our first night, the air conditioner sounded like a jet engine every time it "took off". We complained in the morning and by 3:00 pm we had a brand new air conditioner installed. Great service! (2). The shower was nice except that there was a bath mat apparatus that covered the drain. It was actually in 2 pieces and kept separating when I stood on it. While we didn't complain about it, I would recommend replacing it or removing it all together.
The 3 desk clerks we dealt with were all very friendly and knowledgable. The woman who checked us in gave very detailed suggestions on what to do and see as well as how to get around town and a main street closed for reconstruction.
All in all, a very delightful stay.

This is my wife’s and my favorite weekend getaway spot. The hotel is always clean and the staff is friendly. The rooms have nice views of the Pagan River and are decorated much nicer than one would find at a chain hotel. Downtown Smithfield is a short walk up the hill from the hotel and has several shops and cafes to entertain and feed visitors. Directly across from Smithfield Station is a new walking path entrance to Windsor Castle Park. We took a long stroll through the park and were pleased with the quality of the trails. This hotel is a great get-away for a quiet romantic weekend.

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review for us. We are very proud of our award winning hotel and restaurant and are glad that you enjoyed both! I apologize that you were disappointed with our location. Our location is ideal for everything that the town of Smithfield has to offer. We are directly on the Pagan River, across the street from Windsor Castle Park, and within walking distance of historic homes and shopping. Smithfield Station has been open for over 25 years and this is the first time we have ever had a complaint about our location.

Thanks again for your review and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

We stayed here 2 nights in March after having bought a Groupon package. We stayed in the newer lodge section and had a beautiful and large room with a balcony overlooking the river and tiny marina. It was so peaceful waking up to the birds and seeing the water. Everything in the room seemed brand new, it was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The bathroom was also large, it was tiled, had a huge granite counter, a big tiled shower, and the towels were bright white and fluffy. To make all this better, our Groupon included a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries, breakfast and a dinner at the restaurant which I will review separately. (We walked around the older end above the restaurant and peeked into a room which was being cleaned - it was also beautiful, but the bathroom was much smaller as noted in a previous review. The downside to the older part was that the halls smelled a bit musty so I was glad to be in the newer lodge.) The lodge had some extra public rooms, like what appeared to be a card or reading room overlooking the water, and had many books which probably could be borrowed. The furniture didn't look like your typical hotel furniture. Everything was so pretty. The receptionist (I think her name was Donna) was as nice as could be and so helpful with ideas of what to do in the area.

Smithfield was a cute little town, although the sidewalks to get there(5 minute walk) are all chopped up. We can see that they will be done in the near future. We were given the recommendation to get there via the park and that worked well.

The shops on the "boardwalk" are cute and fun to visit.

We had a great stay here and will return!

Room Tip: Stay in the lodge overlooking the water
