“I wish we'd stayed longer!”
Reviewed October 19, 2010

A beautiful inn in the adorable Southern town, Dahlonega, Georgia. The room was comfortable, very clean and vastly nicer than the other chain motels around town. We thought the prices were reasonable (but we're used to New York prices). The hospitality was southern at its best!

The greeting by the inn keeper makes you think that they are so glad you have arrived and they have your room ready. The room is very large, tastefully decorated, good bedding and a spacious bathroom. The room is very clean and welcoming. You are provided with free parking, free internet, free bottled water and a fresh rose in your room every day. The inn is within walking distance of the town and the university. A great value for your money.

I have eaten scrumptious meals at The Smith House since the 60's, but just had my first overnight experience Labor Day week-end 2010. What a perfect place for wedding and reunion groups! Our suite of 3 rooms with a parlor opening onto the front porch was the gathering place for after-parties and family visits at my nephew's wedding. We rented the whole hotel so all the people there belonged to us! The staff was excellent, patient and kind as you would expect in a home away from home. Thank you all!

We stayed at The Smith House for 2 nights while visiting Dahlonega for a graduation at North Georgia College. We were utterly surprised at the quality of the rooms at The Smith House. We stayed in the honeymoon suite, and it was impeccable and didn’t lack any detail. The room was brilliant updated with granite countertops & lush new carpet. The bathroom had a gorgeous claw foot tub and a huge marble shower with multiple shower heads. The bedding was exceptionally soft and was significantly softer than our bed at home! The staff was extremely nice and of course the food was excellent! We loved our visit in Dahlonega and would highly recommend the city and the stay at The Smith House. Excellent experience—we will definitely be back!

The Smith House is WONDERFUL!!! The food was deleicious and yummy. The room was delightful. I felt like I was sleeping on a cloud with a cloud for a pillow. It was decorated in a classic and simple style. The shower was hot and the vanity was large and beautiful. The towels were the best!!! The staff was great. I would dedinitely stay here again!!!!!!
