I stayed at the Refuge Inn for a week for business at NASA Wallops. The staff was very helpful in identifying local places to dine. The accommodations were fabulous - from the furniture and accessories to bathroom amenities, I had all of the comforts of home at my fingertips. The patio seating right outside my door was a bonus too!... More

The people at the Refuge Inn go out of the world to be friendly. I've stayed in hotels all over the country and none is as memorable as the Refuge Inn. Other hotels have wonderful structures to look at but I don't remember one of them. The people at the Refuge Inn are friendly, and I always remember it. They... More

The Refuge Inn is a lovely, homey, wonderful place to enjoy the quaint and relaxing atmosphere of Chincoteague Island. Rooms are comfortable and decorated in a casual, Southern style, the breakfast is ample and location perfect. This is a great place to vacation and enjoy nature as well as all the Del Marva Peninsula offers!

This is a lovely property. Nice rooms. Very clean and well appointed. Warm and hospitable staff. Have been staying here several times a year when I come to Chincoteague for business. All the amenities but a cozy, non hotel chain environment. It always feels like "coming home." Quiet. I highly recommend it. Just across the bridge from Asoteague Island wildlife... More

I cannot stress enough how the location of this spot really makes it. It's a pretty hotel, nicely landscaped and grown in, it's not a new place but in excellent nick and we ran into no issues other than a plethora of flies. Not the hotel's fault, it's not easy to leave the sliding door close, since it was so... More

Our room was spotless and cool at a 4PM arrival. The staff were friendly, helpful, and accommodating. Of course the location is a major plus next to Assateague Island. Refuge Inn continues to be our first choice for a relaxing vacation (our tenth) at Chincoteague, VA.

Rooms are very well finished, and you get a patio and deck chairs if you want to lounge outside. The complimentary breakfast is excellent. The park is right over the bridge and there is a bike rental shop next door if you don't want to drive around.

Our family of 5 stayed last minute on Th-Fri for a 30% off rate. It was a cozy, well kept room with an updated bathroom that was clean. Our fridge cooled down right away (after being plugged in). The pool was amazing--part shade, part sun & all fun. Kids loved it, as did the adults, who agreed it was the... More

On our trip from CT to NC we usually stop in Pokomoke or Exmore. This time we treated ourselves to a stay at the Refuge Inn Hotel. What a treat for us! Check in staff was awesome,suggesting restaurants for dinner as well as offering to make reservations. Rooms are spotless, pool and Jacuzzi were immaculate and more than refreshing. We... More
