After wanting to visit Chincoteague since I was a kid (literally) a friend and I decided on a last minute weekend trip before school started.

People friendly as well. Other reviews were spot on. Rooms were immaculate. Central location is perfect walking distance for Main St and western Maddox Blvd. Both Chris and Leah were excellent hosts. Offered many great suggestions.

This was not my first choice of a place to stay, since everything on the island was booked for the Oyster Festival. However, I was pleasantly surprised at the convenience, comfort and hospitality that the Lighthouse Inn provided. The inn staff were VERY accommodating with lots of suggestions and answers to our many questions. The beds were more comfortable than...

We stayed at The Lighthouse Inn October 14-16. The room was large and the bed comfortable. It was reasonably priced and within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Although not as modernized as the chains, it included a microwave, refrigerator, hair dryer and cable TV. When checking out, we were unable to find one of the room keys but Chris...

This is a very clean pet friendly motel with tile floors for pets! It is not the style of the big hotels surrounding it. It is eclectic in decor, but it does have the same rates as bigger hotels. The owners were friendly and helpful. This the third time that we have stayed at The Lighthouse Inn in the past...

The island is amazing, tiny but plenty to do and see. The room we stayed in was ok, clean sheets, clean bathroom, just a place to sleep in. The room did have that damp smell to it and the AC was loud and didn't really take the dampness out of the air. All in all was a nice place. The...

Was down there 2 nights for a wedding. The inn keepers were excellent. You could tell they really like taking care of the place. They gave me a run done on the local places to eat and see.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come to enjoy a relaxing stay at the historic Lighthouse Inn! Our location is absolutely perfect! We're located right in the heart of the island, just a short walk to shopping, dining, and those fabulous local artist studios on Main Street and Maddox Boulevard. It's only a very short drive to the National Park and the Wildlife Refuge where you will find a beautiful beach and the famous wild Chincoteague ponies. The Lighthouse Inn offers comfortable rooms in a family friendly atmosphere. ... more   less
