We spent another Spring Break at the Refuge Inn and loved it. The rooms were clean, nicely decorated, and large enough for a cot. There was no problem with getting connecting rooms. I have always loved the balconies, ours overlooked the ponies. The breakfast was tasty and plentiful. We must have hit breakfast at rush hour because the area felt...

Comfortable bed, excellent breakfast.Pool, hot tub. Good location. Very close to Assateague Island. You could actually walk over if you enjoy walking. We even got to see some wild ponies! April was a great month to visit but the mosquitoes were plenty!

Our room was cozy, clean and comfortable. My husband and I brought our 5 year old granddaughter to Chincoteague for her birthday gift and she (& we) loved all of the amenities and convenience of the Refuge Inn. We rented bikes from the family owned bike depot next door for both days of our stay...so easy! The heated indoor pool...

We had so much fun at the Refuge Inn! The staff was great the room was very clean. Our kids loved the pool and the ponies! One of the many great things about staying at the Refuge Inn was that it is located so close to the access bridge over to Assateague. Leave your car at the hotel rent bikes...

We took our grandson on a trip for his spring break and stayed at the Refuge Inn. It was wonderful. Two queen beds and a good breakfast as well as an indoor pool (that morphs to outside in warm weather.) It is the closest property and a very short bike ride from Asseteaque and lots of views of the ponies...

Very nice room. I'm in a wheelchair so I was on the ground floor. The room had all the space I needed and bathroom had a shower and tube. The breakfast was good and staff was very nice. The gym has a lot of equipment, but it needs to be updated. I like staying here very much.
