I picked this hotel pretty much at random from a list of Groupon offers, and am very happy that I went with that impulse. I found Smithfield itself to be charming and laid back, and the hotel matches that vibe well. My room on the third floor of the Lodge was the perfect size, the bed was huge and comfortable, and even the bathroom passed inspection (what can i say, I'm a hotel bathroom snob!). Everyone I encountered, from the front desk to the on-site restaurant, was friendly and helpful - and since I was traveling solo, that was much appreciated. The location worked well for me - you can easily walk to the historic downtown district, or drive to Williamsburg or Norfolk in about an hour.
My only minor complaint was that there was no fitness center, but that was rendered pretty much moot by the fact that an access ramp to the walking trails of Windsor Castle Park is literally right across the street.
I definitely hope to return, although I think I will try for a week earlier or later in the year - the humidity in this area is intense!
