I visited Chincoteague for the first time in July, 2015, and stayed for a weekend at this Island hotel owned by a lovely local couple. The location is great - within easy walking distance of restaurants, shops, and the waterfront area. Everything was clean and the rooms neat and comfortable. I thoroughly enjoyed talking with the owners who recommended two... More

This is a nice place to stay with friendly people. The room was very clean and nice. It has a family atmosphere. The staff treated us like we were family and made us feel at home. It was great to stay in such a relaxed place. This is the reason I loved my visit there so much. I booked through... More

We just stayed at this motel for the week of the pony penning. We are more than happy with our stay. The location is great. It is within walking distance of all the shops and a lot of the restaurants on the island. The rooms are very clean and accommodating. Our daughter had a great time using the very clean... More

A wonderful small 2 story retro motel located in the heart of Chincoteague's historic district. This pet friendly motel makes you feel like you're right at home. Buddy, my little dog, and I relaxed on the double-sized hammock and watched all the comings and goings on Main St. If you like oysters and soft shell crabs, this is the place... More

We only stayed here for one night, as a way to break the trip up on our way home to Philadelphia after a stay in the Outer Banks. Because we weren't staying for long, I didn't want to break the bank, but I also wanted to stay at an independent, family-owned spot. As other reviewers mentioned, the highlight of our... More

We arrived a little late, but the Innkeepers Ben and Lauren were more than welcoming and accommodating. We checked into a room by the office with our dog and stayed for the weekend. The room was very clean and everything we needed was there, including coffee and a fridge - which was great because we bought food at the store... More

We only stayed for one night, but everything was truly great. We loved being able to walk to just about everything in Chincoteague and we felt very much at home with Ben and Lauren's hospitality. Anything we needed, they seemed to have and they offered us great advice about where to go for food and views on the island. We... More

We made a last minute 3 night trip to surprise our kids with a beach "getaway"! We had never been to Chincoteague before. We chose this due to price & availability. While many other places around the area are MUCH more this was a wonderful price -- and hems while it is older, and not a "posh" hotel - this... More
