We've been coming to Chincoteague for years, but this is the first time we've stayed at the Lighthouse Inn. The innkeepers were warm and outgoing, always available to make our stay a happy one. The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable, and the linens were soft. It's centrally located to many of the shops and restaurants in town and is... More

This motel is perfect if you are looking to save money and know that you will not be spending much time in your room other than sleeping. The innkeepers, Chris and Leah were very friendly and helpful with recommendations. Before we arrived, Leah helped us to book an amazing boat tour as well as a horseback ride. The motel was... More

We went for a long weekend with our 9 years old daughter and loved it. The inn keepers were so friendly and accommodating. The inn is clean, and quiet. It's on main st. And right down the road from the downtown shops and restaurants. We walked Main Street to the bay almost everyday. My daughter loved swimming in the pool,... More

I am a frequent traveler, but I have never been greeted as warmly as I was when I checked in at the Lighthouse Inn. The innkeepers went out of their way to make sure my husband and I had everything we needed. Also, this is the most pet-friendly accommodation I've ever visited. The décor is a bit dated, but the...

We enjoyed a 2 night stay at the Inn while catching some waves and a rocket launch from Wallops NASA. The innkeepers, Chris and Leah, are doing a very nice job of making sure their guests are well cared for. We were given plenty of "spot-on" recommendations for eats, drinks and leisure. They went "above and beyond" in many ways... More

This was my first trip to Chincoteague and I didn't know what to expect. The Innkeepers at The Lighthouse Inn were amazingly friendly and helpful. After chatting at check-in, they gave us personalized recommendations for our stay and offered us great insight regarding how to get the most out of our weekend, which we did! When they gave us our... More

We booked our weekend here last minute and were surprised by how nice and clean the accomodations were . The staff at the desk were friendly and very attentive given the late hour we checked in. They took the time to tell us about all the local attractions and which were their favorites. Because we were in town for a... More

Good location. Rooms need updating. Internet was down more than it worked. No TV reception. The entire inn needs improvement. Pool was good. Service was good. They had not received our reservation from our online booking but were able to accommodate us.

My husband and I booked a weekend stay here with our 2 small dogs, and were extremely pleased. The location is unbeatable--walkable (or a quick drive in our case)to downtown and Maddox Street, where there are tons of great food options. Chris and Lea, who manage the property, were super friendly and accommodating despite our really late arrival. All of... More
