Taken over a couple of years ago the Inn is a refurbished motel that is very clean, friendly and close to many of the sites and restaurants on the Eastern shore. We had an efficiency room with a nice little kitchen which came in handy for cooking meals there. Room service is excellent as is the staff there. It's a...

This is my 2nd time staying at the Wachapreague Inn so I knew what to expect. It is not a fancy place but it fits the charm of the small town Wachapreague/Eastern Shore vibe. It is outdated in decor, furniture, tv but it is VERY clean for being outdated and the front office staff is always were helpful. We always...

Not fancy, but the owners and staff of the Inn will make you want to return. Clean, convenient and affordable, it the perfect place to stay while exploring the VA Barrier Islands. Fishing, Beach Combing and Bird Watching in the area is hard to beat.

While the motel is a bit dated it is clean and the price is good. They also have two apartments and a full house with five bedrooms and five bathrooms that would be great for a family The Island House restaurant is right across the street and even on a Monday night in September is busy. we traveled up the...

Stayed here overnight on the way to the Outer Banks. Awesome owners. Nothing fancy, but well kept. Our group loved Wachapreague and the Inn. Good value. Will revisit this every chance possible. Next time we will take advantage of the Daytrippers boating opportunities. Also, the free bikes were a hit.

We love the Wachapreague Inn and also we have recommended it to family and friends many times. Chris and Nikki are great hosts and the Island House restaurant next to it is excellent. I saw the GoRoadie review and I think they took a wrong turn somewhere. Sounds like they were not prepared for the small town charm of a...

The only thing related to an "inn" is a five-bedroom house for rent by large groups. The adjoining property for singles or couples is a motel, and an old one at that. It's located in a very shabby coastal town with few features (one overpriced restaurant). Our room was clean but nothing fancy, the bed was hard, and the price...

Nikki and Chris are the most gracious inn keepers we have ever stayed with in all of our extensive travels. They go the extra mile and include the helpful hint you wouldn't think to ask to make our trips more enjoyable every year. I love visiting Wachapreague to fish and bird watch and now there is a comfy place stay!...

I have to say, right up front, that if your travel needs require all the glam and glitter of the big chain hotels, The Wachapreague Inn is not for you. This is a humble, older motel. I would guess it was built in the 50's. It is right across the street from a terrific restaurant, Island House and the wharf....

Thank you very much for the review! The Inn was built in 1962 as a overflow option to the grand Wachapreague Hotel( 1902 - 1977) that was across the street. The hotel burned in 1977 and was torn down in 1978. The town now owns that land and has created a park that we use for town celebrations throughout the...

Thank you for the review! For those that wander off the main highway , Wachapreague is a Treat! Because the Inn is located across the street from marinas, it offers great scenery and fun places to explore. The Barrier Islands tour takes you through a maze of inland channels that ends at the unspoiled islands with the Atlantic on the...
