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.

Kids loved the horses and the pool! The breakfast was great and a hit with the kids as well. The staff was very friendly and nice. Fantastic location and the bike rental shop being tied into the hotel was a great addition. Free wifi and proximity to restaurants and national park was perfect too

This is a lovely, if old-fashioned, motel. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room clean and comfortable, and the included continental breakfast good. The location was perfect, with Assateague Island just down the road to the right (within easy biking distance) and lots of restaurants and shops just down the road to the left. It was very crowded with...

Great hotel- very nice continental breakfast, very lovely grounds, clean rooms, clean pool, friendly and helpful employees. The Bike Depot next door is a great place to rent bikes, and is very close to the trail to Assateague Island.

I am sure I will take other vacations, and I am sure that they will be great, but I am not so sure that any other hotel can compete with the Refuge Inn. This hotel did everything right, from booking, to check-in, to amenities, to comfort and location. We did not have one moment where we needed anything. This gem...

Clean rooms, nice decor, friendly staff and a delicious breakfast. Lot of extras, swiming pool, sauna, and equiped exercise room. We enjoyed visiting town and wildlife preserve. Great nature weekend in February.
