Enjoyed a 2 night stay recently in The Barn and could not believe how lovely and quaint the building is. While The Colonial Inn seems to be a little more elegant, The Barn is just that. A large "barn" with indoor and outdoor rooms. If you are a country décor lover then this is the place for you to stay.... More

My daughter was married at Smithville Inn. We booked rooms for all our Family at the Colonial Inn and the Barn. Everything was perfect. We can't thank Tracy enough for the accommodations. The rooms were perfect and the service was excellent. It could not have been a nicer weekend. If you are planning a trip in this area, I would... More

I went for my 49th birthday and had a blast! The staff treated me like a princess all three days and my room was excellent! Clean and neat and loved the ice tea! The staff even gave me a birthday gift of chocolate covered strawberries and a Inn mug! I was so elated! They all made me feel so special!... More

Never again! The room was nice until my wife scalded herself in the shower. Temperature control apparently wasn't working. Turning to right for cold and it kept going to scalding hot water instead of stopping at cold. Valve was broken. Told manager upon checkout and she didn't seem all too concerned. Took notes, gave unenthusiastic apology, which came off as... More

I am so sorry to hear that you felt that I was not sympathetic to you concerning the issue with the water. Upon check-out out, I asked how your stay was. The moment you indicated there was an issue, I left my desk, came around the counter, spoke with you one-on-one and spent some time listening to you describe your... More

My mom and I enjoyed our stay and the two days of shopping. We were in the barn which was nice and quiet. The room was clean and very comfortable. My only change if coming again would be to book a room on "the porch" where there was a covered seating area outside the rooms. I would only have two... More

About 12 miles North of Atlantic City is the colonial villiage of Old Smithville. The Smithville Inn is original from the 1700's, and many other vintage buildings have been moved here from other parts of New Jersey. Our stay was delightful, and the room was marvelous. Yes, some rooms are situated in old houses in the middle of the shopping... More

My wife booked us a two night night stay trough 'Travel Zoo'. We have stayed at many B&Bs here and abroad. We only remember one of about 100 stays were we were severely disappointed besides our stay at the Colonial Inn.

The care and attention to the décor in our room at the Colonial Inn at Smithville obviously came from the heart! The little touches as well as the overall architecture was so much better than a franchise hotel room. Our room faced the Village Green and we were worried about the noise of the customers visiting the shops in the... More

My husband and I stayed at The Colonial Inn at Historic Smithville during the last week in May. We stayed in the Barn in room 311. The Barn is a separate facility from the Inn and is probably less hectic since it is a short walk away from the Inn and shops. You can go on their website and view... More

The Historic Colonial Inn was a pleasant surprise. Our room was wonderful. It had a fireplace, a steam bath, refrigerator, microwave, ac, and much more. The staff were wonderful to us and the stores, boutiques and restaurants located in the area were great. They had plenty of unique products and gifts. They had a beautiful view of the lake and...
