Smart and cheap, but you get what you pay for
The room was SO small and my wall heater didn't work. It was cold in my room but the blanket was good and kept me warm at night

Just be aware that this is outside of town. If you're going for a trip to experience the area, there are affordable places in city center. That said, nice place and business travelers like the convenience.

Small but convenient
Smarthotel is clean, new, and comfortable. The hotel is only about 10-15 minutes drive away from Stavanger, which is quite convenient. Front desk service was great. The only possible downsides were that the rooms were extremely small, and the hotel is in a bit of an industrial feeling area. Neither of these matter for a quick overnight stop and a place to sleep. I would not hesitate to go back.
