My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights while he was interviewing for a job at Wallops Flight Facility. It was very nice. The Innkeepers were very nice and helpful. The room was clean and maintained. We enjoyed our stay and will hopefully be back again.

Not only do they allow pets they welcome them. Pets are our family members and I didn't mind leaving our well behaved little dog in the room. I knew he would be safe. Rooms are spotless.They really care about your needs and go out of their way to help. Fridge in our room in working order and clean. Can't wait...

I hadn't been to Chincoteague in 25 years and my husband had never been there. We prefer small motels over chain hotels. We couldn't have made a better choice than The Lighthouse Inn! The innkeepers, Chris and Lea are great! They are very welcoming and friendly. Great advice about where to eat and things to do. The room was very...

We stayed here in February for a get away weekend from the city. It is a small wonderful walking town to explore and minutes away from the Preserve. We were traveling with 2 dogs so the pet rooms were perfect for us. Walk right out the door to walk the pups. We were not in the newer rooms and we...

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...

People friendly as well. Other reviews were spot on. Rooms were immaculate. Central location is perfect walking distance for Main St and western Maddox Blvd. Both Chris and Leah were excellent hosts. Offered many great suggestions.

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
