Hotel is located in the heart of the island. They rent bikes right out front which is rely convenient. They are also located right next to McDonalds which has horse you can feed and pet. The best part of this hotel is the free breakfast every morning. They also have an indoor pool which is ideal for rainy days.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review! All of us here at the Refuge are glad you enjoyed your time on Chincoteague, and we hope to see you again soon. PS-- The ponies are ours but they love to visit the McDonalds side of the pasture!

My family stayed here over Labor Day weekend, and it was perfect. There are two ponies nearby, and the hotel has wonderful access into Assateague. Rate, and cleanliness was just what we wanted. The hotel has a nice pool, and a very solid continental breakfast.

We have been coming to the Refuge for probably 20 years ... It's the perfect place to relax and we always have a wonderful time here! The rooms are spacious, the service is nice, the receptionists are super helpful and the location is the best on the island!

This was a very last minute mini get away - booked Sunday night and checked in the next day. Booked a deluxe king for 4 nights and was not disappointed. We have been staying here the last several years and highly recommend it. Husband is a bird watcher and loves Assateague while I enjoy relaxing on the beach. We may...

This was my first stay at the Inn. The room was of resort quality and very well maintained. The pool was the perfect temperature with beautiful landscaped surroundings. The breakfast was able to accommodate my particular diet plan and was delicious. The location is next door to a bicycle rental shop and the wild life Refuge and I was able...

Thank you for the great review!! We were all so sorry we couldn't help you more-- it was a rotten situation and made even worse that it happened on the day you were supposed to leave! We hope you'll return to Chincoteague again sometime-- and hopefully everything will go off without a hitch.

This was our second time staying at The Refuge in as many years. They just do it right. Last year, we stayed for 4 nights, but it wasn't enough, so we came for a week this year. We enjoyed the clean, large rooms, with great air conditioning and dehumidifier, in-room hair dryer, coffee pot, and mini fridge. Housekeeping staff was...

For the price of a motel, the rooms are more reminiscent of a bed and breakfast, but without the hassle of close quarters. Everything is very clean. We've stayed here now for the last three years, and intend to stay here again.
