My husband came by a deal from Travel Zoo for Smithfield Station, we were there for two nights during March at a very reasonable rate. Other than this time of year being somewhat cool and having a rainstorm during our stay, it was pleasant enough. We can easily see that the Summer and Fall times would be beautiful there.
Smithfield Station rooms face the James River. There were a number of boats in their slips but being March were just parked and waiting on warmer weather. The river was muddy but you could see lots of birds flying in the marina area.
Our room was nicely decorated. The bed was very high, difficult for a short person to get in and out of but provided a comfortable sleep. The room had two upholstered chairs with low backs and were very hard to get out of as you sank into them. We resolved that issue by placing the cushion from one chair onto the one we were using. There was a desk and wifi internet which was relatively speedy (compared to most hotels). We had a small fridge in the room, coffee maker and safe in the closet. There is a fireplace in the room which added to the atmosphere of the room, although we were not sure if it was throwing off any heat.
We would recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in Smithfield and explore what there is to offer there.
