Very clean, quaint rooms. Nice pool. Comfortable beds and balcony space. Peaceful location close to the beach. Could not have been happier! Our first time in chincoteague. The staff was wonderful! a lovely week of family vacation time. Lots to do. Easy to get around by bike. Awesome hiking and bike paths

This was a great place to stay! Close to the beach (just a ride or bike ride away). Friendly staff. CLEAN rooms! Nice heated pool! The horses on the property were a huge bonus for the kids! Breakfast every morning! Would definitely stay there again

The Refuge Inn is just across the bridge from beautiful Assateague Island. A bike rental shop is on the property, making it easy to wake up and pedal on over to the exceptional nature reserve and beach. I'd go back in a heartbeat!

Located on Maddox but away from the noise and traffic. This is an older motel but very clean and well-maintained. Limited handicap parking and the parking lot gets pretty full. It is pony penning week and the whole island is teeming with tourists. I had to accept a two night minimum at approximately $200 per night. But almost every other... More

We loved our room and the balcony was a nice perk. We stayed on the 2nd floor facing the trees. The pony view faces the parking lot and ponies. We are tree people so the forest side seemed a better fit. Perfect location for access to beach, nature walks, and downtown. Only concern was lack of environmental sustainability efforts and...

Assateague is my favorite beach by far and I love Chincoteague as well. After staying at other locations, I was pleasantly surprised by the Refuge Inn. It is exceptionally clean and has all the charm of the Island. The staff was wonderful and I love that the bike depot is right there. I doubt I will stay anywhere else ever... More

I am not a big fan of motels, but I was on a budget and only spending one night, so thought I'd give the Refuge Inn a shot. I'm glad I did! The room had more space than a typical standard hotel room, and was extremely clean. The pool was nice, and our kids enjoyed it. The staff was kind... More

The Refuge Inn is an ideal vacation spot on Chincoteague Island. It has everything you need to enjoy your stay. The rooms are a nice size, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We LOVED the comfort of the bed. We had a refrigerator and coffee maker in the room. A microwave was just down the hall by the vending machines. The... More

This visit was just an overnight while we spent a couple of days at Assateague Beach, but our family has been coming to Refuge Inn for over 20 years. During that time the property has always been maintained at the highest standard and updated with the best amenities. The staff is always helpful and friendly. The setting is perfect, right... More

After a recommendation from a friend to visit Chincoteague on our way home to New York from Virginia Beach, I found this inn on the Chincoteague tourist website and I'm so glad I did! I called for their 20% getaway discount but unfortunately they did not have any rooms for that rate left. They do give a 10% AAA discount... More
