Centrally located on Main Street in Chincoteague. Owner was great and very helpful. Room was clean and well kept. Not a luxury hotel but a great and convenient place, especially for pets! Great location. Great owner. Nice hotel.

Lighthouse is pet-friendly, and the folks who run the place are friendly, too. The room was in the newer section across the street. It was clean, with some air of cleaning products at first, but that went away quickly. It is an older motel, not fancy, but it does have the basics and more: microwave, TV, and refrigerator. Tub and...

Stayed here while visiting Chincoteague because the newer hotels were all booked. While the room was clean, it was a little dated. The Inn advertised they had a pool and hot tub, but when we arrived we were told they were both out of service. They looked pretty nasty. Our room was across the street from the "office". There is...

After wanting to visit Chincoteague since I was a kid (literally) a friend and I decided on a last minute weekend trip before school started. Our destination, The Lighthouse Inn was centrally located to all we wanted to see as well as right in our price range. Our decision was right on point because as soon as we pulled in...

This was not my first choice of a place to stay, since everything on the island was booked for the Oyster Festival. However, I was pleasantly surprised at the convenience, comfort and hospitality that the Lighthouse Inn provided. The inn staff were VERY accommodating with lots of suggestions and answers to our many questions. The beds were more comfortable than...

We stayed at The Lighthouse Inn October 14-16. The room was large and the bed comfortable. It was reasonably priced and within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Although not as modernized as the chains, it included a microwave, refrigerator, hair dryer and cable TV. When checking out, we were unable to find one of the room keys but Chris...

We needed a hotel that would take our dog, so limited on where we could go. Very friendly staff, helpful. Great location to local attractions and resturants. Nothing fancy, suprised so clean. My husband commented that this place was cleaner the Marriott we just stayed in St. Thomas. Rooms have good size frig too and yes everything worked.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come to enjoy a relaxing stay at the historic Lighthouse Inn! Our location is absolutely perfect! We're located right in the heart of the island, just a short walk to shopping, dining, and those fabulous local artist studios on Main Street and Maddox Boulevard. It's only a very short drive to the National Park and the Wildlife Refuge where you will find a beautiful beach and the famous wild Chincoteague ponies. The Lighthouse Inn offers comfortable rooms in a family friendly atmosphere. ... more   less
