There were about a dozen or more flies in the room when we got there. We got some fly strips and that helped. The toilet did not flush unless you held down the handle. We told the front desk and they promised to fix it the next day but never did. There were dark hairs in the shower, on the... More

Stayed at the Birchwood during a last-minute family getaway. Location is nice and quiet, guests can go across the street and use the long dock to watch stunning sunsets. There is a small pool. Lots of roses and other flowers. Two screened-in picnic/bbq shelters. The hotel is located next door to the fairgrounds, so we were able to see a... More

We checked in and Bob told us where to go for dinner and a great ice cream spot. He was definately right about both. We also got some great sunset pictures from the pier. The place could use a few improvements but it's mostly cosmetic. Very clean. Room smelled a bit musty but you are at the beach and you... More

Do not expect a lot of extras - but the staff was very friendly and there was a continental breakfast each morning. The pool is small but was a great place to cool off. I love that it has that "old style motel" feel. Yes, it could use some updating but I totally enjoyed our stay here.

Personally I love the old fashioned motels. Birchwood is one of those, a long string of rooms all on the first floor surrounding a courtyard type area. Chairs out front to soak up the sun. The rooms are clean, beds comfortable. Coffee maker, frig are in the room. Everything we needed, all at a reasonable price. It's right next door... More

The best part was the "owner" who gave us lots of ideas about the area and where to enjoy dinner. Seems like he enjoys talking with guests. The room was perfectly clean and stocked with the basics. No breakfast in November. And we slept perfectly because it was quiet!

Love this place!! Prices are reasonable, rooms are clean, very quiet and love the staff!! This is my new spot to stay on Chincoteague. Across the street is a 700+ foot dock that offers the best in sunsets! There is a pool on the grounds that is very relaxing.

My wife and I went to Chincoteague Island for a weeks vacation and found the Birchwood Inn quite at random. The price was great, rooms are good size and clean, maid service was very good! But the highlight of our week, besides shooting images of dolphins, egrets, ponies, and more, was the friendship that we developed with the owners, Mike... More

A nice quiet place on the island, yet within walking distance to all the action, this is a great spot to book your vacation. The main streets of Chincoteague are promoted to satisfy the little girls that flock to the pony theme. This is cute, but, their is a far better place to truly enjoy the island pleasures that are...
