We found the Refuge Inn over 20 years ago when our kids where young. Now, my husband and I try to come at least once a year! The rooms are so comfortable, everybody who works here is very helpful, and the breakfast is an added bonus! I have considered other places to stay on Chincoteague, but haven't found anything that...

Helpful, friendly staff, comfortable, clean rooms, heated pool and a great location make this hotel a super find. We've stayed here several times and have always found the experience to be delightful. The rooms are roomy (with a balcony), quiet and nicely decorated. There is a bike rental next door and Assateague Island is just across the bridge. We will...

In a sea of cookie-cutter chain motels (all very nice, I'm sure), the Refuge hides behind greenery and architecture that matches the tranquil feel of the nearby Refuge. This will be our go-to place whenever we're back on Chincoteague.

We stayed at the Refuge Inn with one of their specials. We paid for 3 nights and got the 4th night free. This gave us a week at Chincoteague Island. The hotel has a quaint feeling that makes it so different than chain hotels. We had a patio that faced the horses in the corral. We had fun feeding the...

I've stayed here for many years. The rooms are tastefully decorated and lovely, very clean and has all sorts of amenities. The staff is super friendly and very helpful if you need any recommendations for restaurants and other things. They have always been helpful to accommodate our large group.

Great place for a fun stay-right next to a pony pen, so you can sit on the porch of your room and watch them. Right next to bike rentals and road into the wildlife area. Coffee is far better than any hotel coffee I have ever had!

My wife and I made a last minute decision to visit this area for a long weekend, and found our way to the Refuge Inn. We had never visited this area before, so we had no foreknowledge of the hotel. In short, we loved our room and the general character of the hotel. The staff were very friendly, and the...

We stayed here for a weekend away and were very pleased with everything. The room was nicely appointed, very comfy and very clean! The Inn was quiet, not a lot of children which was a bonus for us.
