The Refuge Inn was a very nice place to stay! Beautifully appointed and it was everything and more according to the amenities listed on their web site.The staff was friendly, extremely helpful and very courteous to us during our stay.

My family has been staying at the Refuge Inn every summer for the past five years. The stay has always been excellent, with consistently great service. It's also one of the closest hotels to the refuge and beach. All stays include breakfast, which is also great. A good value for the price.

We look forward to our stay at the Refuge Inn every year and are never let down. After being greeted by the efficient and helpful staff, we check into a clean room and head straight to the hot tub and pool to kick off our vacation. This year we had a beautiful dinner outside under the shady pines at one...

This place is amazing! First, in the morning, they have a daily special breakfast varying on the day,e.g. waffles on tuesday, eggs on wednesday, ect. The rooms here are pretty nice as well. In the rooms, there is a mini-fridge, a TV, and wonderfully made beds that put me to sleep in about 5 minutes. Ther is also a pool...

Very friendly front-desk and housekeeping staff always make us feel welcome! This is our second stay this year, and we are going back in October for the Oyster Festival. We had been going to OC for decades, but a friend introduced us to Chincoteague and Assateague - what a difference! Not only the nature-scapes but the cost is much lower...

Great place the I would highly recommend for families or a quiet getaway. Nothing is far from the inn, you can bike ride to the beach or to main street and there are plenty of great shops and restaurants within walking distance.

We now know where we will be staying on future trips to Chincoteague. From the moment we arrived until we departed the staff was friendly and courteous. Our room was clean with tasteful decoration. Our room overlooked the parking lot which wasn't ideal but on the other side of the parking lot was the pony pen which thrilled our granddaughter....

Already planning a return trip to Chincoteague and not even considering staying anywhere else, because this was exactly what we were hoping for. Ponies on site were a hit with the kids and the pool was perfect for the little ones - a nice gradual depth progression. A boardwalk past the pony pens provides an outstanding view of the channel...
