Saw this hotel in a groupon offering. Couldn't resist the bargain. We combined it with a trip to Chincoteague and had fun seeing historic places nearby. Wonderful room with super comfortable beds. Did not want to leave that lovely room. The pool is small but since we had it all to ourselves for a pre dinner swim we didn't mind at all. The adjoining restaurant was great - so nice just to walk over from your deluxe room to a quality restaurant and not have to drive anywhere! The breakfast the next morning was a lovely surprise - a real sweetheart of a waitress made us bacon and eggs with true southern hospitality.

Room Tip: If you get a groupon coupon take a deluxe room in the new part of the hotel. Not sure about the hote...

My husband and I were given a groupon coupon to stay at the Smithfield Station. We frequent the town of Smithfield due to it's uniqueness and down to earth nature. We also love the water. Our stay at Smithfield Station was our first time. We had excellent service even from the booking of the room (very professional and kind - rare these days), a clean room, check in, everything just wonderful. We ate in the restaurant twice and each time had a GREAT experience. Make sure you walk along Main Street and go to the Visitor's Center! Local artist have workshops in there, and the folks inside are so nice! Don't miss the brunch at Smithfield Station on Sundays! Paula will make you an egg omelete to your taste and includes crab meat and shrimp if you like. My husband and I would share meals and it was enough. Also Smithfield Inn has a wonderful little lounge for a nice sandwhich. We stayed in a cottage so our privacy was awesome! The town of Smithfield is also fun to walk around and explore! ENJOY! We hope to go back soon.

Room Tip: Try to stay in one of the cottages - a separate little building if you can.....

We stayed here last week and found the room to be satisfactory until we returned from dinner around 10:30, ready to sleep after a long day. About the time we were dozing off, i was awakened by a man's voice and thought someone had entered our room. It took a few seconds to realize he was next door. It honestly sounded as though he were in the room with us. After a half hour or so I phoned the desk to ask if they could intervene and get the guest in the other room to lower his voice. They did so immediately and the problem was resolved until this guest arose early the next morning.

This appears to be a fairly new building and i found it difficult to understand why they had no elevator. Our room was on the third floor with more than usual steps to each level. We are older so no way we could have gotten there without help with luggage. Upon request, they will get a bus boy from the restaurant or a dock boy from the marina (when they are not busy) to assist with bags. When we checked in, we left our things in the lobby until they could find someone to take them upstairs.

Again, the facility is OK but we won't be going back to deal with all those steps. Young people, enjoy!!

I am glad we were able to solve the problems you encountered. The building you stayed in was built in 1986 and at the time did not require an elevator. It is also built on pilings over the water so it could not have an elevator (I always joke that when it went down, it would come back up full of fish.) For our folks who need an elevator, our newly constructed Lodge has this convenience. Next time you are back, make sure to ask for one of our Lodge rooms and we will be happy to take care of you. Thanks for the review!

Hotel is newly built and well maintained. Rooms are excellent with granite sink tops and great bathroom. Beds comfortable. Great free breakfast. Very good restaurant with very friendly staff. All the rooms view water and marsh. Swimming pool very small and the only disappointment.

Room Tip: Third floor away from restaurant are quietest ie 3301

Thanks for the review! I agree the pool is a little small, but its positioning by the marina is superb and that is the largest pool we could fit there! We hope to see you again soon!

My wife and I (especially her) needed a getaway just to relax and for the most part "do nothing"!
After missing last Summer due to the weather, we finally made it and it was everything we expected an much more! The room was beautiful, very comfortable, clean and spacious. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and the restaurant and the food were 5-Star! Include the shops at the hotel plus the close by town of Smithfield and we wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back and hope that we can get a reservation since they will be hard to get when more people find out about this "hidden treasure" in Virginia!!!

Room Tip: Choose a room in the main building.

beautiful room, nice breakfast. Pool sparkling, but a little disappointing in size and location.

Room Tip: request a room with a balcony overlooking the river.

My stay in Smithfield was enhanced by the very pleasant experience at Smithfield Station. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were fresh and clean. The bed is one of the best I had ever had in hotel. The restaurant was good and the bar is very inviting, both had great views from large windows overlooking the water. The town is repairing the sidewalks heading into town so in a few weeks it will be a nice walk past historic homes to the downtown. Jack C.
