We had amazing 3 nights at The Lighthouse Inn. Everything was excellent, from the accommodating, we're served in very good services by friendly staff. Our room was clean and very comfortable with private bathroom. It's also very quiet at night, breakfast need improve.

A great place to stay on Chincoteague Island. The staff was friendly and always available. Room was very clean and grounds well kept. I enjoyed the pool and spa feature and there is a great screen house to have a barbecue or just sit and socialize. A wonderful alternative to the "chain" hotels. Close to all activities yet a peaceful... More

There's also a binder in the room which listed lots of local resources & info. The room was quite large, very clean &... More

My wife and Granddaughter had a great stay for the two days we were in town. The place is clean and expertly managed; with great recommendations for food and fun. I loved the gazebo as a shaddy place during day and bug free at night. The best value on island.

I was a bit leery about staying here. We don't have pets and don't usually stay in budget hotels, but we were travelling with my son who had a cat and were looking for reservations last minute so we booked here. What a pleasant surprise. We would go back without hesitation. I had several opportunities to talk to Lauren and... More

I visited Chincoteague for the first time in July, 2015, and stayed for a weekend at this Island hotel owned by a lovely local couple.
