The island is amazing, tiny but plenty to do and see. The room we stayed in was ok, clean sheets, clean bathroom, just a place to sleep in. The room did have that damp smell to it and the AC was loud and didn't really take the dampness out of the air. All in all was a nice place. The...

Was down there 2 nights for a wedding. The inn keepers were excellent. You could tell they really like taking care of the place. They gave me a run done on the local places to eat and see. Room was clean. Bed was very comfortable. Room has a mini fridge and coffee maker. Nothing like a cold beer at night...

My fiance and I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Lighthouse Inn. Our room was extremely clean, the beds comfortable and the grounds very well kept. The Innkeepers, Chris and Lea, were fantastic! From the moment we arrived, they were so kind and helpful; recommending places to visit, local spots to eat, etc. We cannot wait for our...

The other reviews of this hotel get it right. It is a nice, clean place to stay. Nothing special and a good price. Right in downtown - a 5 min walk to the town center. Would not hesitate to come back and/or recommend to others. Friendly managers (they let us use our room after normal checkout time to freshen up...

Traveled in to Chincoteague Island late at night. Received a call checking on us and left light on for us and our keys. We brought our pet. One of the few places on Chincoteague that allow pets. Just the kind of nice service you can expect from a small motel. It is refreshing to stay at a place where they...

Great low-price place to stay, especially if you are bringing pets. Management was great, really friendly and helpful. We came with our dog and were able to get an early check-in and late check-out which gave our pooch a place to be while we enjoyed the extra time at the beach. Rooms were clean and in a good location. The...

We've been coming to Chincoteague for years, but this is the first time we've stayed at the Lighthouse Inn. The innkeepers were warm and outgoing, always available to make our stay a happy one. The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable, and the linens were soft. It's centrally located to many of the shops and restaurants in town and is...

This motel is perfect if you are looking to save money and know that you will not be spending much time in your room other than sleeping. The innkeepers, Chris and Leah were very friendly and helpful with recommendations. Before we arrived, Leah helped us to book an amazing boat tour as well as a horseback ride. The motel was...

We went for a long weekend with our 9 years old daughter and loved it. The inn keepers were so friendly and accommodating. The inn is clean, and quiet. It's on main st. And right down the road from the downtown shops and restaurants. We walked Main Street to the bay almost everyday. My daughter loved swimming in the pool,...

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.

The Lighthouse Inn offers comfortable rooms in a family friendly atmosphere. ... more   less
