Positive Reviews

positive:

Staff are friendly, polite, and nice to deal with.

The staff at Smithy's are well mannered and cordial, and make the stay a bit more pleasant. They're a benefit to have at hand during your stopover, and as a source for local sites of interest.

positive:

Great location for when you're in Birmingham.

The inn is perfectly located for seeing plenty of Birmingham's hot spots. Public transit is easy, with several bus and rail routes nearby, and it's just as convenient to get to many places by a quick drive. You can use the hotel as a simple base to check out sports, shopping, museums, and entertainment venues.

positive:

Nothing else positive about this bed and breakfast.

No other positive opinion has been expressed by the guests about these accommodations.


Negative Reviews

negative:

It's common to be sent to a different hotel nearby.

Many guests have reported being sent to another hotel, when they go to check into this one. Even with reservations being made, it's become common to be re-directed to different lodging. The reasoning isn't clear, so keep in mind that you may not stay at the address you thought you would be at.

negative:

Rooms are extremely dirty, unkempt, and disgusting.

The rooms are a great disappointment, because of the high degree of uncleanliness and distressed state they are in. There are holes in the linens, leftover food and other garbage, and naturally because of the debris, bugs. Budget pricing still doesn't justify the poor conditions.

negative:

Wi-Fi is not free and not worth the daily charge.

In addition to a clear signal not being available throughout the inn, the Wi-Fi is also apparently not always provided for free. There is a daily charge for its use, which guests find off-putting and especially grievous, given the already less than stellar atmosphere the hotel presents.
