Bought a two night getaway from Groupon and upgraded to a suite (Room 202). I have been to Smithville village before and found it to be less of an historical experience and more of a shopping experience so I was a little leery about staying in this type of atmosphere. We arrived on Sunday, 3/24, and were escorted to our accommodations, which turned out to be in one of the old buildings that were brought in from around south Jersey and refurbished to create the "historical" Smithville Village. Our room was on the second floor which was reached by an outside staircase. The room was attractively furnished with a sitting room and a bedroom which was quite large and both rooms had faux fireplaces that lit up with the flick of a switch. Sounds kind of corny until you've had a couple of glasses of wine and then it seemed just fine. The bathroom was a good size and included a large bath tub and a separate shower stall with 5 shower heads(think of all the fun you could have with that). This unit abuts the back of the property so you have some privacy if you sit out on the deck where you enter the room. Other windows look out on the village complex. The staff were very friendly. All in all I was pleased with the accommodations. Since this was the off season the stores all closed between 5 - 6 PM and after that it was pretty much a ghost town. The street lamps came on at night and most of the buildings had tea lights on as well with canned music softly playing in the background. It was a strange experience walking around the village at night with no one else around.
