We have stayed here every year when we visit, and ALWAYS have a wonderful time. The facilities are always in excellent condition, and the staff, both front desk and housekeeping, are so nice and helpful. I would highly recommend the Refuge Inn, whether it is for a long weekend or for a week!

This is basically the closest hotel to the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge. They even have a few ponies of their own that you can pet and feed right across the parking lot. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. They have a large half indoor half outdoor pool that is heated along with a hot tub and sauna. Our kids really... More

We had the perfect stay at the Refuge Inn! The rooms were unique, clean, affordable and gave off a boutique-feel that stayed true to the vibe of the island. Breakfast was delicious and filling, the pool was gorgeous and my fiance, a huge fitness buff, couldn't stop raving about the amazing workout room.The inn was such a convenient stroll, bike... More

Just back from a long weekend at the Refuge Inn. This was our 6th visit and we love it better every time. The little breakfast is a fun place to plan your day and the ladies at the front desk were super welcoming. Rooms are nicely decorated and clean and the wifi works great. Nice sized (warm) pool - opens... More

In December, I was invited to attend a NASA social media event and watch the Orbital Sciences Antares/Cygnus launch from Wallops Island. I found out from a guy who got the same invitation that the Refuge Inn was offering a special price for folks coming into town for the launch. It still wasn't the lowest price in town, but it...

We needed a break from the busy life of New York and wanted to escape to somewhere quiet and peaceful, and Refuge Inn was the perfect place. The rooms are warm, welcoming and relaxing. The people at the front desk are friendly and were always happy and excited to answer any questions I had ( and I had a lot... More

Just back from a few days on Chincoteague - our first visit. The folks at Refuge Inn were exceptional from the time I made the reservation through the end of our visit. They were kind enough to email me a heads up that the pool opening was delayed to see if we wanted to change our plans, because they recalled... More

Each Spring for the past 6 years, we have enjoyed staying at the Refuge Inn with our children and grandchildren. We enjoy the hotel with its lovely breakfast, as well as the large,well kept pool. The Chincoteague Ponies in the nearby corral are fun to watch too. Since the Inn is just over the bridge from the National Wildlife Refuge,... More

We've stayed at the Refuge Inn twice and both experiences were excellent. The first stay was October 2012 and again in May 2014 for our 1 year anniversary. Our room was always clean and smelled fresh during our entire stay. We always enjoy the ponies with their babies kept right next to the Inn. This time we remembered to bring... More

We decided to take a trip to Chincoteague in the winter because our older daughter was loving the Misty books. I read the stellar reviews on Tripadvisor and thought I'd give the Refuge Inn a try. I had been to the island but had never stayed at the inn before. I called and got a great price of $149 a... More
