My husband & I just spent three days visiting the Chincoteaque Refuge and surrounding areas and stayed at the Refuge Inn. Couldn't have asked for a more relaxing stay - the room was bright and clean, bedding was so comfortable - and the staff was so friendly and made us both feel very welcome. Bike Rental right next door -... More

Great location for accessing Assateague. Rooms were immaculate and comfortable. We rented bikes from the depot next door and road around the island all weekend. It's an easy bike ride into the main area of town. Make sure you eat at Pico Taqueria!

I had stayed in the Refuge when I was a kid and vaguely remembered it (mostly that they had their own ponies!), so when I decided to take my boyfriend here for our anniversary, I went for this hotel! When I saw that it was normally a two-night minimum, I called them to ask if one would be acceptable, and... More

I absolutely love this place! Each room is decorated differently. The inn is only steps away from the refuge! My favorite amenities are the heated pool, rooftop deck, sauna, and hospitality. The outside area is beautiful and relaxing with picnic tables and the fenced in ponies. My daughter enjoyed feeding them. The breakfast is also a great plus! Fresh fruit... More

The hotel is well maintained, quiet, with updated décor, and the staff provides first class service. There is a very nice continental breakfast including scrambled eggs or waffles and the pool is party sheltered and inviting. The hotel is very convenient (only about 1/2 mile) from the Assateague entrance. We stayed on the second floor in one of the even-numbered... More

We escaped a bad motel to come to the Refuge Inn and it lived up to it's name. The front desk staff, the breakfast staff, the cleaning crew.. Everyone was just plain FRIENDLY! tt goes beyond the concept of good customer service and right into the idea of being open, giving, and caring. My feet sunk into the carpet.. I... More

Housekeeping has the place looking great. The grounds are well kept. Pool area is clean and easily accessible. Never have had a problem with the maintenance or cleanliness of this property.

We have been bringing a group of 6th-grade graduates to Chincoteague each May for the past 11 years, and every year we have felt so welcome at the Refuge. The grounds and rooms are so lovely, and the staff is very warm-hearted. Our students enjoy the pool, the gift shop, and the rental bikes. We will keep returning.

I have stayed here once before, during a women's church retreat, and knew I had to come back. This hotel is quaint, beautiful and more like a boutique hotel - nothing like a chain hotel. The price for your stay can not be beat - especially when you consider the service and the amenities. There were plenty of families with... More
