I can't begin to describe how Awful the place is. On opening the door, the musty odor overcame us. The bug in the sink, the dripping water from the leaking faucets, the mouse trap on the closet shelf, the laminate coming of the sink top are other things we noticed after being in the unit for about 30 seconds. My... More

But if you want a clean room, comfortable beds and low prices - with tons of decent restaurants and shopping in the area - this is the place. There's a small fridge and basic TV set up. Really convenient to shops, gas, and food.

The reviewers on trip advisor have this place spot on. It is a perfect 3 star motel. $35 for the night. Having driven up I95 for two hours and findings all hotels are full or have one penthouse available for $250+ Finding this place at 11 at night was a tonic. Room was clean, bed ok, internet if you stand... More

Only use this hotel if you're on I-95 and need to snooze for a few hours. Not well maintained and while they advertise free wi-if, it's non-existant. You can see the network, but can't do anything with Tia's the signal's too weak from anywhere in the hotel.

This hotel is quaint. Originally asked for this choice from TripAdvisor. Staff was helpful. Stayed here several days. The room can be cleaned as needed. A good old style motor lodge. Coffee and doughnuts offered in the a.m.

I stopped here by chance and it was a good stop. I needed a good nights sleep after 13 straight hours driving up from SWFL. It was reasonably priced, secure for my vehicle, all rooms on the first floor. Friendly desk staff and they accepted my well behaved cat with no problems. If you are looking for luxurious accommodations, are... More

We stay here a couple of times a year when we are travelling to South Carolina, and have for years. It is a basic old fashioned motor court, no frills, but it is so convenient to I95, clean, and takes pets for only $5 extra. The front desk staff are pleasant and helpful. Sure, it could use updating and sometimes... More

Ok, preamble before any misunderstanding. We are not speaking of upscale lodging or anything resembling such.The Village Motor Lodge in Smithfield is a handy and easily remembered place to stop at exit 95 0n I95 in Smithtown, known ( to a declining audience) for the Ava Gardner Museum, nationally famous Smithfield hams and a nearby shopping center with a few...
