Chincoteague is mostly about the wild ponies. We stayed for 5 nights in June; three generations of us including a 10 year old girl who loves ponies and was the reason for our trip and a 15 year old boy who doesn't. We had the Papa John Suite at the Best Western. It was completely furnished with anything you could need to make or serve a meal except a full size stove.
The main room had a king sized bed that was very comfortable, and a large plasma screen tv. There was also a cafe table and stools, an easy chair and an armoire next to the sliding glass door that led out onto the small but adequate balcony. Being on the front of the hotel, we were able to look out on the pool area, which was well-landscaped.
The bathroom was actually spacious, with lots of storage room and counter space. There was an inner room that held a hot tub which was put to good use after the 9 hour drive from NY.
The kitchen area was also roomy and fully stocked with dishes, glasses and silverware; it had a microwave and a small refrigerator. On the opposite end of the suite was a room with its own air conditioner that held a queen size bed and a set of bunk beds. There was a dresser and mirror but no additional storage space.
The staff was friendly and made helpful recommendations when we asked about dinner and things to see on the island. We even got a friendly hello from one of them when we walked into a "locals" restaurant one night for dinner and walked past their table!
The Best Western served a full hot breakfast every morning in a clean and well-stocked room right off the lobby. A computer and printer were available for use in the lobby. A basket of fruit was always available, as was lemonade.
The hotel's location just off the rotary leading to Assoteague was ideal, and we were fortunate enough to be able to see the lighthouse from our balcony on a moonlit night before spending the day there at the wildlife preserve.
The price was reasonable especially for the value we got for our money.
This was a pleasureable stay at a hotel that obviously made a priority of good customer service; I'd stay there again any time.
