Very Friendly staff, easy check-in, right near the square so a great location. Parking was a little tight but there was an event. The restaurant was closed on Monday and I feel it should have been open, especially following an event and since the restaurant is highly advertised. Where the hotel fell short was little things, like the doors had... More

Beds had feather or imitation feather toppers (don't know which they were) that made them super comfy. Only real drawbacks were 2nd floor with no elevator and a very basic complimentary breakfast. We were given an offer of assistance to... More

Charming restaurant and inn in Georgia's "gold country" - close to the square with lots of shopping and antiques. Meal is served country style and all you can eat - delicious southern "country" cooking. Love their slogan (in title above.)

Went to the Smith House with a group of friends for dinner. Enjoyed the family style meal. Besides the crisp fried chicken, ham and for tender pot roast there are lots of side dishes. Mac and cheese, collard greens, fresh cream corn, green beans & mashed potatoes. We did have to wait about 15 minutes after our table was completely... More

Plates & bowls of vegetables, country steak, & fried chicken. This has been a local institution for decades. Sitting at long tables, the plates & bowls are brought to you. All fresh, and plenty of helpings.

We stayed one night in the carriage house. Rooms are small but very nice and updated. Bedding is thick and comfortable. Within walking distance to many fun shops and the square. Staff is very friendly. Reasonable rates. We should stay again.

This time around, we received a smaller room with a queen size bed. Decor - as in the other rooms, is good. The staff is friendly and helpful and the location right off the town center is great. Hotel provides a very causal light breakfast in the morning.

We are 20 year New Yorkers, decent southern food served family style was novel to my three kids, but it was delicious enough and fun...and not too expensive, kids are charged fairly! I would recommend and I would return.
