Been to Chincoteague many times the last 30 years. First time to stay at Island Resort. Pleasantly surprised at how nice everything was. The room was excellant, view was extraordinary westward over the bay. The breakfast was convenient and staff there was super. We will return again. Bill and Nancy Lafferre Ohio

I was in Chincoteague for a solo photography weekend and wanted a convenient base of operations. This really filled the bill. It is a great location, just off the bridge, and away from the congestion on Main Street, where most of the other hotels are located. The continental breakfast was eclectic (you don't usually see waffles on a continental breakfast)... More

I've been visiting every couple of years for around 25 years, usually in springtime before mosquito season (although when I've visited in June spraying for mosquitoes in town kept the mosquitoes to a minimum at the resort while they were ferocious in the nearby wildlife refuge). The management recently made a concerted effort to improve the rooms (e.g., replacing the... More

We loved the atmosphere of the Island Resort. It felt like we were home. The room was quite spacious. The view was beautiful. They offered all the amenities including a lovely cabin setting for your complementary breakfast. We took advantage of the great deck out back, porch swing and the cozy hammock. Very relaxing! Can't wait to visit them again.

The staff is super accommodating. Our retreat on site was repeated because of the water views, gardens, walkways, exercise facility and meeting room. Love having a separate breakfast area and hammock/picnic spot. I appreciate their efforts to update the facility from year to year too. Well done!

Very nice staff, very knowledgeable about local restaurants, etc. .Free Wifi that worked. Clean rooms, a little dated but immaculate with a beautiful view. Comfortable bed ( was new not that long ago), plenty of water pressure. You have your own little sitting area/deck to look at the view. We checked in at 11:00 at night and checked out around...

Lovely location & the view cannot be surpassed. Needs major updating though. Decor is very 80s. Nice indoor pool & hot tub & very friendly hotel cat. Having to go outside to get to the breakfast room is a bit of an inconvenience, but all in all I would return.

Friendly and accommodating staff, very convenient location. Beautiful setting with many outdoor areas to enjoy the scenery, such as multiple decks with hammock and benches, tables and a grill. Nice boardwalk along the waterway, fun to watch the boats go by. Although our bed was a little tired, and our room was a little dated, we had a wonderful experience... More

Always leery of booking something online without first previewing it but the several times I called ahead of schedule the staff was very customer friendly via phone. This place is tucked in, very private (if you want it), incredible deal for what they offer and the most gorgeous sunset views. Rooms were exceptionally clean and everything was in working order....
