Nice large rooms. Could use a little updating. Beautiful views. Nice breakfast. A little off the beaten path in a good way, out of the traffic. Indoor pool and jacuzzi. Some days the shower never really got very hot. New beds, very comfortable but high. I'm 5'8" and still had to jump to get in.

This was the second year that we had stayed here and last year was marvelous. This would have been fine but if you are handicapped this is not the place for you. We stayed in the handicapped unit and they have new beds which are very comfortable once you can get up in one. I had to borrow a stepstool... More

Very nice hotel, reasonable rates, beautiful views, friendly staff. Hammocks, porch swing, exercise room and 2 pools. Every room has a view of the bay. Enjoyed birdwatching from the balcony. Easy walking to downtown shops and resturants. Can't wait to go back.

the Island Motor Inn is one of the best places to stay on the Island. Great views, large rooms, clean and quiet. The office staff is always pleasant and helpful, and now that we've gotten our house we still go back to visit them and their cat Toeby. I would highly recommend this to anyone that is looking for a... More

We couldn't be happier with our recent stay. The prices are very reasonable and don't skyrocket during the holidays like most. Our view (from room 152) was amazing (but all rooms are waterfront). The property itself has nice sitting and relaxing areas. My favorite part of the hotel is the resident cat in the lobby:) The sunsets are a can't... More

Started off rough the front cashier lady was very rude. Then straight lie to me said my room wasn't ready. Another lady just gave the key to me. Guess room was really ready but because I was an hour rude lady didn't want me to have key early. This has never happened before. The breakfast used to be better still... More

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
