This visit was just an overnight while we spent a couple of days at Assateague Beach, but our family has been coming to Refuge Inn for over 20 years. During that time the property has always been maintained at the highest standard and updated with the best amenities. The staff is always helpful and friendly. The setting is perfect, right...

After a recommendation from a friend to visit Chincoteague on our way home to New York from Virginia Beach, I found this inn on the Chincoteague tourist website and I'm so glad I did! I called for their 20% getaway discount but unfortunately they did not have any rooms for that rate left. They do give a 10% AAA discount...

I have been vacationing on and off in Chincoteague since the late 1970s and have stayed in campgrounds, homes and at least 2 other motels there. The Refuge Inn is by far the nicest and most enjoyable place I have stayed on the island. I found the service to be impeccable, with the staff accommodating me during a busy time...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review! We are glad you enjoyed your time here on Chincoteague Island and hope to see you again soon. You may want to request rooms 135 or 136 if you're sensitive to hallway noise. They're off to themselves so there is virtually no noise.

Really nice place and very well maintained. Location is perfect and the adjacent bike depot is extremely useful. We visited in the summer during a busy weekend and the location right next to the causeway was excellent.

We stayed here for two nights recently. It's a very nice hotel...a little dated, but very clean and very friendly staff. Free continental breakfast, and food was good, but limited in variety. The eating area was a bit crowded as well. Comfortable rooms...great location in terms of access to Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge and Assateague Beach. Greater variety of breakfast...

We've been staying at Refuge Inn for many years. It's clean and so convenient to Assatesgue Island. The staff at the desk are very friendly. Not having an elevator for the second floor could be a problem for some.
