We went down for the weekend to do some fishing. The hotel was adequate. It was clean and the room was spacious enough for 4 adults. The atmosphere is just plain relaxing. It has a very homey feel. It is a perfect spot for families. The pool is small but felt wonderful on a hot summer afternoon. The staff could... More

We stayed at this motel for 3 nights, and it is not the typical motel! The motel was very clean and very safe. The people at the front desk were very very nice and make you feel at home. It is within walking distance of the town which is perfect for breakfast and dinner! I will definitely be staying here... More

We stayed here last summer and were very impressed. The room, grounds, and pool were very clean. We just had a basic room but the refrigerator and the outdoor summer kitchen allowed us to cook a few of our meals and save a bit of money. One day, we were at the beach all day and although we hung the... More

We have been coming to this hotel for over 20 years. It is a quaint little motel that is always clean and friendly. The one room efficiency's are great for having your own food in your room, and cooking some meals. They have an outside screened in kitchen that is awesome w/ everything you need. The pool is a nice... More

This place is like stepping back in time. It is spotlessly clean inside snd out and has a nice outdoor pool. Also an easy walk to downtown. Very quiet location and hospitable owners. Room rates are a bargain. Stay here for great value at the beach.

I love little places like this. Absolutely not a luxury spot, but quaint and CLEAN! th people at the desk were very friendly and ready to help with questions as it was my first trip to Chincoteague. They recommended the trolley tour and it was very informative and filled with the history stuff I love. It was quiet and an... More

I much prefer small motels to large hotels, and this one is now one of my favorites. Friendly owners, nice pool, comfy and cozy room, good location, easy check in and out, and most importantly, SPOTLESSLY CLEAN!! Chincoteague Island is a very sweet, very little town, but it has quite a few large chain hotels to choose from ~ I... More

We are glad we chose this little motel as opposed to a chain motel because it has character. Our room has everything we need. It is not fancy, but it is clean, and the beds are comfortable. The amenities are adequate; no shampoo, small cakes of soap. There is a fridge and a coffee maker, and a room air conditioner.... More

I have my standards! Accommodations must be clean comfortable and quiet! The Sea Shell was this & more! William greeted us with a warm smile and perfect dining recondition. The room was completely updated, clean, comfortable beds & bath. The efficiency was well supplied with everything you'd need to eat in. We are already planning our next visit.dint overlook this...

I stopped there 2 days during a tour of Virginia this summer. I looked for something different from the standard types of motels/hotels you find everywhere. And I found here what I looked for. Deliciously oldish style, but nevertheless nice rooms. You could take a chair and seat outside your door, or go to wooden tables a bit further under... More
