It takes a lot of courage for owners of a small local inn to welcome pets... something that most large chains (who can better afford the risk) usually won't do. Inn owners Benjamin and Lauren were WONDERFUL, and even made a point to come over and greet my aging (and very wobbly) Dutch Shepherd, Jagger. The room was simple and... More

Clean room, musty odor even with a/c on. Outdated furnishings. Was just a stop for travel so it was OK. Outdoor pool area looked nice but we could not take advantage as it was raining. Right in the center of town so it would be an easy walk to shops, restaurants.

Last minute reservations brought me to the Lighthouse Inn. Check in was great with very nice staff. This is a dog friendly hotel and they were great towards my dog. Nice place to sit and walk your dog in front of Inn. The room was also very nice. Clean, and they had a small refrigerator and microwave in room. They... More

This hotel was in perfect distance from Mr. Whippy's, JackSpot, and the field where the big LOVE beach chairs are located. We walked almost every where. The hotel staff was so incredibly helpful. We had to arrive later than check in time and they stayed open until we arrived. They also suggested good food/drink places that turned out to be... More

We had amazing 3 nights at The Lighthouse Inn. Everything was excellent, from the accommodating, we're served in very good services by friendly staff. Our room was clean and very comfortable with private bathroom. It's also very quiet at night, breakfast need improve.

A great place to stay on Chincoteague Island. The staff was friendly and always available. Room was very clean and grounds well kept. I enjoyed the pool and spa feature and there is a great screen house to have a barbecue or just sit and socialize. A wonderful alternative to the "chain" hotels. Close to all activities yet a peaceful... More

I only spent one night here (as a break in my travels up the coast), but will definitely go back in the future. Lauren was welcoming & helpful in recommending places to eat & places to see. There's also a binder in the room which listed lots of local resources & info. The room was quite large, very clean &... More

My wife and Granddaughter had a great stay for the two days we were in town. The place is clean and expertly managed; with great recommendations for food and fun. I loved the gazebo as a shaddy place during day and bug free at night. The best value on island.

I was a bit leery about staying here. We don't have pets and don't usually stay in budget hotels, but we were travelling with my son who had a cat and were looking for reservations last minute so we booked here. What a pleasant surprise. We would go back without hesitation. I had several opportunities to talk to Lauren and... More
