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... More

We needed a hotel that would take our dog, so limited on where we could go. Very friendly staff, helpful. Great location to local attractions and resturants. Nothing fancy, suprised so clean. My husband commented that this place was cleaner the Marriott we just stayed in St. Thomas. Rooms have good size frig too and yes everything worked.

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... More

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... More

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. Room was clean. Bed was very comfortable. Room has a mini fridge and coffee maker. Nothing like a cold beer at night... More

My fiance and I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Lighthouse Inn. Our room was extremely clean, the beds comfortable and the grounds very well kept. The Innkeepers, Chris and Lea, were fantastic! From the moment we arrived, they were so kind and helpful; recommending places to visit, local spots to eat, etc. We cannot wait for our... More

The other reviews of this hotel get it right. It is a nice, clean place to stay. Nothing special and a good price. Right in downtown - a 5 min walk to the town center. Would not hesitate to come back and/or recommend to others. Friendly managers (they let us use our room after normal checkout time to freshen up... More

Traveled in to Chincoteague Island late at night. Received a call checking on us and left light on for us and our keys. We brought our pet. One of the few places on Chincoteague that allow pets. Just the kind of nice service you can expect from a small motel. It is refreshing to stay at a place where they... More

Great low-price place to stay, especially if you are bringing pets. Management was great, really friendly and helpful. We came with our dog and were able to get an early check-in and late check-out which gave our pooch a place to be while we enjoyed the extra time at the beach. Rooms were clean and in a good location. The... More

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
