I have stayed here once before, during a women's church retreat, and knew I had to come back. This hotel is quaint, beautiful and more like a boutique hotel - nothing like a chain hotel. The price for your stay can not be beat - especially when you consider the service and the amenities. There were plenty of families with... More

Excellent facility and wonderful staff. This is our third time staying here-first time with granddaughter. Having ponies on site was great for her. Also enjoyed the pool. Facility is very well kept inside and out. Was nice and quite even though it was pretty full including a Class trip. The Chincoteague area and the Refuge Inn is the one place... More

I have been coming to stay at the Refuge since 1989. It has super special memories, is in the best location, immensely comfortable and beyond friendly. If I could visit each season i would! Love you Refuge and thank you!! -Polly

Decided to stay at the Refuge Inn from its website and a friend's suggestion. This is a lovely inn, more like a boutique hotel than a chain one. Rooms are very clean, spacious, comfortable, and decorated differently. The staff - front desk, housekeeping, and breakfast - are very friendly and helpful. Pool and hot tub are relaxing. Their gift shop... More

Room was very comfortable and quiet. Pool and spa area also very nice and convenient. Easy to ride bikes over to the Reserve. Able to walk to museum and a few eating spots. Continental breakfast was satisfying.

I visited once for a long weekend away and loved it so much I brought the family back a month later. The Refuge Inn played a big part in making both trips enjoyable and memorable.

Clean and friendly with a nice sized covered pool, ponies to feed, and adjacent bike shop that equipped us for a day out at reasonable cost. Perfect easy button getaway for this small family mini vacation. Also enjoyed the local fish and taco takeout places that had yard games to keep the younger set busy.

The Refuge Inn is such a lovely place to stay - so much nicer than a hotel/motel chain. Our room was beautifully furnished and very clean. Also, Refuge Inn is a short distance from the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge and you can rent bicycles at the Inn (automobiles are not allowed on some of the trails for much of the... More
