I stayed here for 2 nights, Sunday - Tuesday, then week before Pony Week. It looked like the place was fully booked. I picked the Refuge Inn since it wasn't a chain, and it is family owned. I was happy to find that my limited-mobiity special requests were thoughtfully honored. Only thing that would make that issue better-served would be... More

Our family (2 adults,2 young kids) stayed here last week and really enjoyed our time. The place is very comfy and quaint. Rooms were very clean and great sizes. Pool area was not super huge but fitting for size of resort. Pool and grounds covered in lusch greenery and beautiful flowers! The kids loved the horses right next to our... More

We just came home after 5 nights at the the Refuge inn. It is lovely, clean, comfortable and right near Assateague Island. The location is the best on the island. The beach at Assateague is spectacular. The Marsh Walk should not be missed.

The Refuge Inn was a wonderful experience. We booked our family reunion, of about 25 people, to stay at this location. The rooms had plenty of space, and were nicely decorated (a few of the rooms have not been updated, but I believe they are slowly working on updating all of them). The bathroom had a pedestal sink and wainscoting,... More

Feels like coming home after a long ride. Hot waffles in the morning and a bicycle at my door. Answers to all of my questions served with a smile. The ponies are friendly and the pool is warm. Great stay!!!

My husband and I stayed at Refuge Inn for two nights. It is a very well-maintained property with spacious rooms, nicely appointed, and clean facilities. The staff is helpful and friendly. The Inn is close to Assateague and it was nice to be able to ride our bikes there and back. The breakfast is really a step up from what... More

We stayed in Room 223. Very comfortable & cozy room!!! Decor was new, and was extremely clean. Our room was pretty basic, 2 beds, small... More

This is a great hotel and its name is completely appropriate. The Refuge Inn is the most secluded of the hotels we saw while biking around Chincoteague - away from the road, with a lovely outdoor pool in the back surrounded by pine trees. The room we stayed in (one of the suites) had a lovely balcony, spacous living room... More

My husband and I stayed there for 3 nights in June, 2014. We selected it based on other Tripadvisor reviews and because we really wanted something that wasn't part of a big chain. We were VERY HAPPY with our selection. The staff was warm and welcoming from beginning to end. The complementary breakfast was more than we expected - included... More
