Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Stayed for the weekend with the kids and friends for sports event ,Spotlessly clean room big thumbs up Downside was house cleaning the woman on the Saturday Were rude and unhelpful when asked if we could have one extra facewasher The bloke on the Sunday cleaning out rooms was nasty as he pushed past myself and my son In saying this The tall lady working Sunday was a breath of fresh air!!!! Helped us with somewhere to eat as a big group besides the normal fast foods places Also was very patient as we had a lot to pack up Unlike your other workers Reception were amazing also Will return next time but not if they are working there!

We would never go back there, to that dirty, shoddy accommodation. I have photos to substantiate my comment. Shower had soap scum and mould all over it. A towel was dirty, the bedroom wardrobe was full of at least a centimeter of accumulated dust. The bathroom tiles had major cracks . The top shelf in the fridge was broken in halves. We had 2 cabins, both of the same standard. The photo attached is the inside of the wardrobe, but I have more photos. No, we would never go back there

Craig was incredibly welcoming to us on our recent overnight stay. The room was dated but had all we needed and was clean and comfortable. Lovely to meet others travelling with pets and kids, very family friendly. We had people either side but were not disturbed. We will definitely stay here again.

An absolute gem in Horsham. Craig takes obvious pride in this accommodation, keeping it clean, tidy and making repairs and improvements ASAP where needed. Not just “pet friendly” (aka “pets tolerated), our 2 doggos were made to feel welcome for their stay. The team provides great local knowledge on check-in and we were very well taken care of when a medical issue arose (Thankyou!!). Comfy bed, hot shower, free breakfast. Will stay again.

Find somewhere else to stay. This motel was awful it is in need of a major overhaul . The walls are paper thin so you hear everything from the adjoining rooms the bathrooms smell mouldy . On the plus side breakfast was included and it wasn’t bad cereal coffee and toast ..

Stayed 3 days and for those looking for budget accommodation it's the best in town. The motel is dated but has comfortable beds, clean bedding and the staff are friendly and made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay a good one.

Don’t stop. Drive on. Breakfast is better at McDonald’s. The place is not worth anywhere near the money they charge. It felt unclean and unloved. Pay a little extra and get a decent place down the road

Very professional staff and room was exceptional! Service was second to none and the complimentary breakfast just shows how Smerdon Lodge goes above and beyond for all guests! I would recommend Smerdon Lodge to anyone who visits Horsham!

I got caught between borers during the lockdowns, stuck in my car with my beautiful dog Forest, we got refused accomodation at many places until we found the Smerden where we were welcomed by the very friendly and helpful owner, it was clean and warm with a great shower and if you are travelling with your dog I would highly recommend a stay here, all of us travelling with animals must support these motels when we can they go that extra mile to cater for our dogs and the lockdowns must have been very hard on them, if your in the Horsham area give them your support.
