We truly enjoyed our stay at The Refuge over the labor day weekend. We had a deluxe room and it was very very comfortable & quiet. It is an easy bike ride to the beach, lighthouse etc.We loved being so close to the refuge. My husband got up early every morning & walked to fish from the bridge. He loved... More

The Refuge Inn is a great retreat located just steps away from the Assateague Wildlife Refuge. This is a place for quality family time. Rooms are clean, pool is adequate, ponies are a great distraction during down time with the kids and the Bike Depot is most convenient! We received impeccable customer service by all of the staff from the... More

After eyeballing The Refuge's charming exterior during many vacation rental trips to Chincoteague, we finally stayed here in late August. It's the closest hotel to the national seashore, surrounded by grass and pine trees and has its own pony pen as well as a bike rental place right next door. Our family liked the nice warm pool, the hot tub... More

My husband and I spent 5 nights here the end of August. It's a great place to stay. The room while not fancy is clean and spacious. Beds are comfortable. The in-room refrigerator is a plus. Its location is the best in Chincoteague. It's a two minute drive to the wildlife refuge or you can rent bikes right at the... More

The Refuge Inn is our favorite place to stay in Chincoteague. I had wanted to stay 4 nights but only 3 nights were available for August 21-24 so I booked. Upon confirming reservation two weeks later I was able to book another due to a cancellation. Room is comfortable and a good size. The staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast... More

The Refuge Inn is really just a great place to stay on Assateague. With the wonderful pool/hot tub area, the hidden deck on the roof, the comfortable rooms, the horses right across the parking lot, the friendly staff and of course the wildlife refuge this is truly a great place to stay in Chincoteague! Every day we'd load up our... More

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a fly drive. Hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the room was large enough and well equipped for a family of four. Beds were comfortable and the AC efficient. Pool was great-lots of pool towels and area kept nice and clean. Location was good for beach access. We thought the free... More

Ideally situated just a short distance from the entrance to Assateague, the Refuge Inn was, indeed, a refuge from daily life for a few days. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. When a minor oversight meant we needed more towels, not only did they provide some immediately, but when we returned from a night out, the desk staff had... More

Everything about our room was great: clean, ample towels, shampoo and soap, comfortable mattresses, large TV, A/C plus a dehumidifier. The pool is also very nice, clean, heated. The hot tub was locked; a bit of a pain because once you were wet, you wouldn't want to walk all the way to the front desk to get a key. But... More

We are glad you enjoyed your room here at the Refuge. As we do not have a commercial kitchen, our breakfast options are limited--but luckily for those who need a heartier breakfast than we can offer, there are other places to have breakfast nearby. The diner across the street (AWESOME omelets!) and Bill's Prime on Main Street (Everything is good--especially... More
