Caring owner and staff are making this a nice little place on the Virginia eastern shore. Flexible, responsible people. Right near a good restaurant and fishing boats. Quiet. We were there for a biking event which helped (with a wedding party) to fill the place. The full house was not a problem. Nice little breakfast amenities in office.

This is a very basic motel, but with a delightful informality and relaxed environment in a tiny Mayberry overlooking great marshes & barrier islands. Family run & friendly staff. Free bikes to cruise around the small town, totally flat. Night sky was pollution free and gorgeous for watching stars. Good wifi. Forget Ocean City or Chincoteague, Wachapreague is our secret...

Wonderful place to stay! My husband and I stayed here one night and had a great experience. On our way to OBX with a large group and everyone decided to spend one night in VA to cut the driving time. All our friends reserved rooms at the Quality inn. After reading reviews, I was glad they had no vacancy. This...

Found this seaside motel quite by chance; most major hotels in the area were sold out. This little summer type place is in a little fishing type village. The motel rooms were dated back to the fifties; no phone, no hair dryer; but, did have a fridge & microwave! Noisy wall unit A/C, but was very welcomed. Probably one of...

We would have been happy to do that while you were here, to make your stay more comfortable. Although we do not have hair dryers and phones in the rooms we...

Our kayak class stayed here for a long weekend. The hotel is conveniently located to Folly Creek for paddling out to Metompkin Inlet. The staff was absolutely friendly, always introduced themselves and were genuinely interested in how our stay was going. I'm always a bit nervous staying in privately owned hotels because you are never sure what it's going to...

The rooms are clean and quiet. The location couldn't be better if you are looking for a romantic getaway to a small town or for a great fishing or birding location. The black skimmers at sunset are gorgeous. We loved the free bikes too!

We will stay longer next time. Room was clean and in good repair with quaint accessories. simple and comfortable and perfect for retreating. The office and reception staff is great and in line with the small town charm. The courtyard has seating and accessories that definitely make you want to sit outside or bring grilling stuff to eat outside. The...

We were within steps of the island house. Views of the water from the front of our room. The room was very clean and had a small kitchenette which was very handy since we stayed for the weekend. It was extremely close to parks to take the dog for a walk and play tennis. The inn had plenty of activities...

I left a review of the Inn a year or two ago and would like to say again that we love it. Cozy, clean comfy and rustic. The staff is terrific as are the inn keepers. Do check their website. A favorite with fishermen, birders and tourists alike, you get a comfy hotel room footsteps away (literally) from the Island...
