“Ok, cheap and clean but smelled musty”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

The room was clean. The sheets and bathroom were clean but the panel on the walls was coming off and the room smelled musty. Even after spraying lysol and lighting a candle, every time we entered the room we could smell the musty smell. Housekeepers were very nice and accomodating. The rooms need to be updated but overall for the money it was clean. I would not stay at this motel again until it is updated and the musty smell is taken care of.

We spent a few days recently. Very rustic feeling from the old movies and parking right in front of the rooms is convenient for loading and unloading. We enjoyed the feeling of staying in a motel as if it were 50s or 60s.
Pros:
close to the best ice cream place in town
play ground under a big tree, shaded so fun to be out on a hot day
nice cleaning staff and the owners
spacious enough and great air conditioning in hot weather
dollar store across the street for convenient stop by
alcohol and all-you-can-eat sea food right across the place

Cons:
The owner's dog swims in the same pool as the customers
dog poop is not picked up and duck poop spread all over the place
bathtub/toilet could be cleaner - we noticed dirty stains in the tub
cooking pots had worn out top layer and internal metal exposed
a lot of mosquitoes and dead bugs in the pool
random people walk in to the room including hotel staff without knocking either by mistake or old habits
walking barefoot on the kitchen floor turns your feet black as they have not been cleaned with the wet mop in the longest time
mattresses too soft and provide no back support

I stayed 2 nights here. The hotel is in a great location - right across from the Ice Creamery. The rooms are nothing fancy but who needs fancy when you're at the beach. The room did have a microwave and fridge. The pool was great.
The owners (and their dog) were delightful. I would stay here again if I went back.

just spent 4 nights: $85 per night. nothing fancy--but really, at the beach, you are only using your room to sleep and change clothes! VERY clean. good location. pool is clean and same as all the other motels here have--3-5 ft.inground with plenty of chairs surrounding it. fridge,microwave,coffee pot are standard. only get soap in bathroom--bring your own shampoo. 2 towels per person per day--that could be a little more--you use more towels when staying at beach--but i'm sure we would have been given more if i had asked. owner is very nice and helpful. motel dog is precious. I have been coming to Chincoteague for 49 yrs and really love the place. This motel owner gets what many of the others need to learn: you can't charge huge prices for a shabby fishing town. people WILL stop coming. Especially since the town seems to be getting shabbier. i always got that "shabby chic" feel at chincoteague--awesome at the beach! but now it just feels "run-down" and in some areas, even unkempt. interestingly enough--i couldn't get one of the "fancier" places to take a name your own price on priceline-but everyone of them had vacancy signs up--guess empty room is preferable to reduced rate?(i had bid $75 on a $87 avg room!). Forget them--Sea Hawk will get my business.

Room Tip: rms 1-6 are directly in front of pool and close to ice maqchine.

An old "mom & pop" hotel. It is very clean and well kept. There is a mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker in the room. We paid $57 for a Saturday night. A basic room with all you need in a room. It is one level with parking at your room.

Very comfortable, clean and with that old fifties motel feeling which we loved. You can park right at your door. It is convenient to the refuge and restaurants, and has a pleasant outdoor area with picnic tables and playground. Wifi worked best near room #5. The excellent price allowed us more spending money for the decoy and craft show going on the weekend we were there :-). We will be back.

This motel is no frills but we were out and about all day so it was perfect and exactly what we were looking for. The rooms and bathroom were clean. Beds weren't real comfortable but for the price it was worth it. Clean is always top on my list and it was. We prepaid for 5 nights and had to leave 2 days early and there was no issue with the owners crediting those 2 nights. This was off season so I don't know what would happpen during peak season. Also, we got caught in traffic on the way there and weren't going to get in until 10 ish according to the GPS and I called the motel and the owner was very kind and even though they were going to be closed she gave me a room number and left the door for that room unlocked which we were very thankful for. Thanks for a great stay Sea Hawk! It was our first time in Chincoteaque and we enjoyed our stay!
