Not fancy, but the owners and staff of the Inn will make you want to return. Clean, convenient and affordable, it the perfect place to stay while exploring the VA Barrier Islands. Fishing, Beach Combing and Bird Watching in the area is hard to beat.

While the motel is a bit dated it is clean and the price is good. They also have two apartments and a full house with five bedrooms and five bathrooms that would be great for a family The Island House restaurant is right across the street and even on a Monday night in September is busy. we traveled up the...

Stayed here overnight on the way to the Outer Banks. Awesome owners. Nothing fancy, but well kept. Our group loved Wachapreague and the Inn. Good value. Will revisit this every chance possible. Next time we will take advantage of the Daytrippers boating opportunities. Also, the free bikes were a hit.

We love the Wachapreague Inn and also we have recommended it to family and friends many times. Chris and Nikki are great hosts and the Island House restaurant next to it is excellent. I saw the GoRoadie review and I think they took a wrong turn somewhere. Sounds like they were not prepared for the small town charm of a... More

The only thing related to an "inn" is a five-bedroom house for rent by large groups. The adjoining property for singles or couples is a motel, and an old one at that. It's located in a very shabby coastal town with few features (one overpriced restaurant). Our room was clean but nothing fancy, the bed was hard, and the price... More

Nikki and Chris are the most gracious inn keepers we have ever stayed with in all of our extensive travels. They go the extra mile and include the helpful hint you wouldn't think to ask to make our trips more enjoyable every year. I love visiting Wachapreague to fish and bird watch and now there is a comfy place stay!... More

I have to say, right up front, that if your travel needs require all the glam and glitter of the big chain hotels, The Wachapreague Inn is not for you. This is a humble, older motel. I would guess it was built in the 50's. It is right across the street from a terrific restaurant, Island House and the wharf.... More

Thank you very much for the review! The Inn was built in 1962 as a overflow option to the grand Wachapreague Hotel( 1902 - 1977) that was across the street. The hotel burned in 1977 and was torn down in 1978. The town now owns that land and has created a park that we use for town celebrations throughout the... More

Thank you for the review! For those that wander off the main highway , Wachapreague is a Treat! Because the Inn is located across the street from marinas, it offers great scenery and fun places to explore. The Barrier Islands tour takes you through a maze of inland channels that ends at the unspoiled islands with the Atlantic on the... More

I have stayed here more times than I can count. A few years ago, the current owners took over, and they have been making upgrades since that time. Aside from updating the rooms, the level of service is now impeccable. They couldn't be more friendly or helpful. I used to stay there because there were few other choices and none... More

We've stayed at Wachapreague Inn a couple of times. The people who run the place are very friendly and helpful. The vibe of the place is laid-back and cozy. The rooms are nothing fancy - at all. But when I'm on the Eastern Shore, I'm not there to hang out in a hotel room, so it's fine. No pool, no... More
