I was in town for a two day training at the Chincoteague Bay Field Station, and I thought I'd treat myself to a night with a water view. The room was very clean and comfortable. Real carpet! Beautiful view of marshes and Chincoteague Bay and gorgeous sunset over the drawbridge. I could hear herons and willets from my balcony! The... More

The room was comfortable and reasonably priced. We had a great view from the room and enjoyed sitting out on the deck so we cloud watch the birds. In the room they had a mini fridge which was great for us because we had a hard time finding a good place to eat. We did however enjoy the continental breakfast... More

The room we had was up to date, clean, was large, and all their rooms have a view of the inland waterway. One of the key factors for my wife and I was that this is a family owned business and not a corporate chain taking money away from the local economy.

I've stayed here almost every year for about 15 years now so I must really like it. About the best views you can imagine, every room has a balcony right on the water. My only quibbles are: no in-room microwave, and mediocre (virtually all pre-fab) breakfasts. Hospitality of person checking me in and out has varied widely over the years,... More

This hotel is convenient for walking to the downtown shops and galleries. All rooms have a great view of the canal looking toward a small island where the white egrets and blue herons perch in the trees in the morning.

We loved the waterfront view with an egret right outside our window. The hotel is convenient to the Refuge and the town. The property is well maintained - the carpet seemed new. The staff was helpful.
