“Wanted to Stay Longer”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

My husband and I consider this BW our sure thing quick get-a-way spot.We love to ride our bikes around the wildlife refuge and this BW is the closest hotel, motel, or B&B to the refuge.We are always well-treated and well taken care of here: comfy beds, very clean rooms, and a light early morning breakfast that is perfect for cyclists who want to grab a bite and get going. We lock our bikes to the rack out back and they are very safe there.

Room Tip: All the rooms either have a balcony or if on the ground floor a little place to sit. There is an el...

Across the street from the McDonalds, this Best Western is the closest hotel to the wildlife refuge and beach. HINT: if you're 62 or over and don't have a Senior Pass you can get one for $10 at the entrance to the refuge and entry into National Parks and Forests will be free (for up to four people) for life. The sunrise over the marshes in the refuge was great. No hiking involved - park along the road about 1/10 of a mile past the first left turn in the road after you enter the refuge. Its best if you get there about a half hour before sunrise. Ducks and suspected osprey with a fish in my sunrise picture made for a great picture. You can go to the beach to get a sunrise shot, but there are no dunes or grasses to frame your picture, so there's nothing to distinguish your beach sunrise. But if you're there for two or more mornings - go for it. If you want to get a sunrise picture from Snow Goose Pool, you will need to walk about 3/4 of a mile going east on the road to get to a good vantage point. Or you can try the observation deck at the pool, but it is 1/2 a mile away from the parking lot. Assateague is known for its ponies and we saw them both days we were there. Saw at least half a dozen different kinds of birds and a Sik deer. Breakfast is served from 0600 to 1000, but I was able to make a sausage egg sandwich before six, wanting to get to the refuse before the sun rose. The next day, I grabbed breakfast after I got my sunrise pictures. This hotel has one of the longest breakfast periods that I have ever seen. The best view of the light house is from the third floor. We were on the east end. I suspect the rooms on the west end may provide a better view. You can see the lighthouse after you turn left toward the refuge, but there's no place to stop along the road. I think all of the rooms at the hotel are entered from the north end and go through to the south end. All of the balconies or patios are on the south end. The hotel has bikes but there is a small fee for them. There is a bike rental place across the street to the west of the McDonalds. You can also rent scooters (not sure where the rental place is). Watch your speed. While I was there (only two days) I saw a car pulled over.

Room Tip: If you want a view of the lighthouse ask for a room on the third floor on the west end. All of the...

My wife and I have been staying at this location for over 30 years. The staff is excellent (I am welcomed by name upon check-in), the rooms are extremely clean (maid service is excellent), breakfast buffet is very fresh. As a frequent traveler for business and pleasure, this has to be my favorite place to stay. Closest to the beach, has bike rentals, washer and dryer (and not a dingy area in a basement either - new, clean machines in a well lit, clean room). The management pays attention to detail at this location (always cleaning the pool, yard work, etc.. You won't go wrong staying here.

We had a great stay at this hotel. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Rooms were very nice and very clean. Breakfast was good and the hospitality lady was great. We would like to return to the area and we would definitly choose this Best Western Plus Hotel again. The hotel desk clerks were very friendly and helpful about places to eat and how to get to places. Checkout was quick and friendly. The breakfest hostess was very nice. She provided us with knowledge about the history of the island and pictures of the ponies.

We spent one night at this hotel and had a lovely experience. The hotel really is the closest to the refuge. Our room was large, clean, comfortable and quiet. We happened to be given a corner room on the end, so it was very peaceful. The balcony would be a fun place to sit on a warmer day as it faced the front of the hotel with the refuge in the distance. Good complimentary breakfast with varied choices. The front desk staff was pleasant, professional and helpful with some good suggestions for dinner. It is very convenient to restaurants and for fast food lovers, there is a McDonalds restaurant across the street. We saw some guests walking or biking into the refuge as it is that close by.

Room Tip: Our corner room on the second floor was very quiet and peaceful during our stay.
