We had a great time. The room was the best, had a great view from our room. The food was out of this world. We used room service one night, then who brought it up was so nice. everyone was just so nice.

We use Smithfield Station as our little romantic getaway since we only live 30 minutes away. It is always quiet, clean and feels like a wonderful home. It is so cozy with the gas fireplaces in each room and spacious bathrooms with luxurious showers and some with jetted tubs. We have a peaceful view of the Pagan River. Another wonderful... More

Due to January winter weather, we were only able to walk in historic Smithfield on one day, but we didn't mind because our water view room provided the relaxing ambience we were seeking. Meals in the restaurant downstairs provided easy dining; I'd been wary of eating here after reading some earlier reviews but my worries were unfounded. The breakfast buffet... More

Food was okay. We shared the Rockfish with Smithfield Ham and crab. The ham and crab were almost non existent which is not a bad thing for the ham since it has such a strong taste. I asked for the sauce to be served on the side. Our waitress wrote nothing down...the dish came with the sauce on the fish... More

Room was spacious, no complaints, but the breakfast buffet was terrible. Saran wrapped bagels, uninspired eggs, inattentive restaurant personnel. Very tired and showed that the management apparently doesn't care. We were very disappointed. A beautiful setting deserves more.
