My family and I had a great experience at the Refuge Inn last week. Amenities includes a fantastic indoor/outdoor pool, free breakfast and ponies that you can feed next door. The rooms are a good size and worked with for my family that included two young children. The location is great as there is a bike rental depot next door... More

The breakfast was better than expected, eggs, sausage, raison bread, the works plus great coffee!! The staff was very friendly as well. Overall, we had an excellent stay and... More

The room was immaculate, the AC was cold, bed was big and they had a smart TV. You can bike or walk to the beach at Assateague. Continental breakfasts and coffee are included. The pool was clean and enjoyable.

We did a last minute 2 night stay here and were so glad we did! We loved this place and were very comfortable and happy here. It's the little things that do it for us: a small fridge, coffee maker, small balcony. The pool was nice and felt great after hot days running around. Also the furniture was not the... More

First time at this Inn and we were impressed. The Inn was very well kept and all of the employees we saw greeted us as we went by. It is very close to the lighthouse, refuge and beach. We will stay again!

Stayed 2 nights in a deluxe queen room. One of the nicest and cleanest room I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. Entire property was very well cared for by an attentive and friendly staff. Highly recommend this hotel which is located in a very desirable location on Chincoteague Island.

Our trip was a mother/daughter weekend getaway. First off let me say that we travel frequently. Just returned from a week in a 2 bedroom villa at Disney. (Needless to say we are very picky.) The Refuge Inn was amazing ~ from the welcoming staff, very clean accommodations, beautiful grounds and the horses on property. This will be our only... More

Thank you for the fabulous review! We are speechless. To have impressed a sixteen year old is a feat in itself, but to be put on the same level as Disney is quite an honor. We are so glad you enjoyed your time here on Chincoteague, and all of us here at the Refuge look forward to seeing you again... More

Our room was very well-maintained and clean upon arrival. The king bed was comfy and there were plenty of dresser drawers for storage. The tile floors were spotless and the carpet was exceptionally plush. The bathroom was decently sized, and even though the shower was standard, the water temperature was fantastic. Loved the care taken to furnish the room with... More
