The Inn is part of the historic Smithville village. We stayed in the upstairs Johnson Suite which overlooks the village. The Room(s) were extremely comfortable and well maintained and decorated. There is a private entrance and small deck on the Back. The breakfast was good (continental). While we're used to a more elaborate breakfast at these types of places, this... More

Smithville, who ever heard of this small village?? We had not, but when friends suggested this as a stop over from our wine tastings in the region we found it charming and the Colonial Inn was excellent! Clean, traditional decor, and yummy homemade products for breakfast. Service was attentive and friendly. we will go back.

We went to inn for the weekend with some friends and we pleasantly surprised to find a great little inn so close to home. The rooms in the barn were big, could sleep a couple wanting to get away for nice weekend or the family with 2 small kids. Great place.

Whether you're looking for a girls weekend away or a romantic escape, this is a place worth visiting. Lots of shopping, great restaurants and an inn that offers both family friendly and romantic rooms. The couples only rooms offer a variety of options including fireplaces, Jacuzzi tubs, steam showers, multi room suites and a continental breakfast each morning. The rooms... More

Colonial inn has accommodations in main building and in a separate barn and few cottages as well. They are all very well situated in the village, all the restaurants and shops are well within the walking distance. We stayed in the main building in room 108 (Carriage room). Did not have any problems with sunlight waking us up early in... More

Smithville is a hidden jewel . the Inn is a quite elegant oasis. Nestle in between a village of quaint shops and treasures. A wonderful surprise consistently full of fun, for a single traveler or a big family. Visit it you will not be disappointed

My husband and I were celebrating our 22nd anniversary and I chose this hotel because it looked so charming. I chose the specific room because the description mentioned a porch, privacy, and a steam shower. Unfortunately, some of those expectations were not met. First, due to our youngest son swearing into the US Navy we had to check in a... More

Exceptional service from the start. Room was very clean and quaint. Everytime I looked around, I found another little item I hadn't noticed before. Right in the heart of Smithville, but enough off the main track that you had privacy. Breakfast basket was wonderful. Pretty much endless coffe, tea, lemonade, and iced tea during your stay. Staff is knowledgable, coureous,... More
