Been staying here every summer for 5 years now. Quiet motel, WONDERFUL staff, great prices, very clean! Beautiful landscaping, outside cook kitchen, picnic tables, and a nice pool. Walk to downtown Chincoteague in 3 minutes! Highly recommend!

Conveniently located, yet removed from traffic noise, we are just one block from town and are close to shopping and eateries. We offer a variety of accommodations including modern motel rooms, More efficiencies, suites and cottages/houses. A summer kitchen, picnic tables, barbeques, shade trees and flowers everywhere combined with moderate rates makes us one of the most popular motels on the island. Less
