This family run hotel exudes the pride of its owners (who also live onsite year round). The rooms are very clean, WiFi is fast (and free), and the location is perfect- a 3 minute walk to the historic downtown center. Nice pool and BBQ area was a bonus.

The couple that runs the Lighthouse Inn is fantastic! Very gracious, helpful, and available. After check-in, they addressed me by my name each time we met up. Very personable. The room was serviceable - clean, basic TV only, comfy bed, mini fridge, coffee maker, and microwave (I think). The location is fantastic. Easy walking distance to the shops, restaurants, and...

Well, to make a long story short we drove 4 hours to Chincoteague and realized we did not have a place to stay. NASA was launching some kind of rocket and all of the hotels were booked to capacity.

My fiancé and I visited the island for the first time for a short weekend trip. We inadvertently came across this hotel when our prior arrangements fell through. We were in a panic because all of the other "chain" hotels were booked. We were not expecting much, considering the price. We inquired at the front desk with the loveliest couple... More

Run by a very nice young couple, who are trying but don't give the impression of having much hotel experience. Musty, moldy stench the moment you open the room is overwhelming - not a smell one gets 'used to' after being in a room for a while. Smells as though it were flooded, after which carpets were never replaced. Wi-Fi... More
