We had a first floor room that was nice and clean with a very comfortable bed. I was very pleased with everything. The breakfast was good, the staff was friendly and the pool was nice. I liked the location that was close to a lot of good places to eat.

I wanted to love the Refuge, as I had fond memories of staying there years ago, while in college. But, my ground room floor had a very strong mildew smell, despite a dehumidifier running in the corner. I ended up buying a couple air fresheners as the grocery store, but, when I got home everything in my suitcase had absorbed...

All of us at the Refuge are sorry that you didn't enjoy your most recent stay. As in all seaside towns, humidity can sometimes be an issue-- but we combat this with special dry-air air conditioners and separate industrial dehumidifiers. We also have our air conditioner units professionally cleaned twice each year to ensure that they stay clean and fresh...

We loved the Refuge Inn. It was truly a refuge from some of the hustle and bustle in our daily life and even around the rest of the island. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Having laundry facilities was a plus. The daily breakfasts were good too. Overall we loved the atmosphere and hospitality shown at Refuge Inn.

We enjoyed our visit here. The rooms were clean, well decorated. All amenities that you would find in larger chain hotels, but with the ambiance of a small motel. Continental breakfast was included, which consisted of scrambled eggs and sausage links, various breads, muffins, cereal, yogurt and fruits. Coffee and tea station was available 24 hours as well as coffee...

We wanted to be as near as possible to the Nattonal Park on Assateague. The Refuge Inn is about as close as you can get. Our room was generous, with two very comfortable Queen-size beds and a small balcony overlooking the grounds. Everything was sparkling clean; wifi worked well and we had a small refrigerator. Laundry facilities are available for...

We usually stay at larger hotels because smaller ones can be hit or miss. After researching hotels in the island we decided to try The Refuge Inn. What a gem! The front desk staff was amazing and welcoming. Our room was very nicely updated and the bed was super comfy. The room furnishings were quite nice too. We had a...

We have been coming here for over 10 years and it just gets better . The friendly staff at the front desk , well manicured lawn . I prefer to give my money to the locals not the corporate giants. I have never had a bad experience here . Already looking forward to my fall getaway.

Stayed again for my second time and my husband's third. Very friendly place, very convenient to the refuge, and bike rentals right next door! Breakfast is included and makes it easy for us, eat quickly and out the door to explore and photograph!

We had a nice double queen room on the second floor. This is one of the oldest hotels on the island but it is very well kept and shows little signs of its age. Very clean and everything worked fine. A nice powerful shower with a deep soaking tub. Great location just before the bridge to Assateaque.
