Motel is attractive from the outside and inside and very clean and well maintained. I've never stayed at this chain before because I thought they were all old, but will... More

The hotel's location was lovely - could sit on a covered front porch area and look out over the marshy area to Assateague, and could see the Assateague light house. VERY NICE hotel staff. Not a hotel - more like a motel, with rooms opening directly onto the parking lot area on the back side of the hotel. The beds... More

My husband and I chose this hotel because of its perfect location right outside the entrance to the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge -- a short hop over the bridge. We were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful landscaping as soon as we pulled into the parking lot. The desk staff was very friendly and helpful and had us checked in quickly... More

This is a highly recommended location for families. Very clean and great service! It is conveniently located to the beach and town. This was a 9 year old birthday celebration weekend and the staff left a b'day balloon and salt water taffies for the birthday girl. It made her weekend!

We have gone to many Best Westerns, but this is by far the best. Located next to the national park, it offers wonderful views.
