Positive Reviews

Excellent Eastern Shore Location

For lovers of the water and the ocean, this hotel is conveniently located close to the water, and centrally located near downtown restaurants and shops, with easy access to Mr. Whippy ice cream shop and The Jackspot which is a great place to grab a drink. The National Wildlife Refuge and Assateague Island Beach are just five minutes away, and it's there that you can see the Chincoteague wild horses as they roam freely in the wild.

Simple Comfortable Motel

This motel is simple, clean, and comfortable. There is ample space and you'll find everything you need, from a mini-fridge to microwave to coffee pot. Guests love the large, screened-in area at the front of the property that comes complete with tables and chairs so you can sit outside bug free and enjoy a lovely evening. Guests also enjoy the complimentary bottles of water daily. And for those with dogs, this is a pet-friendly motel with a great place to walk your dog in the front of the inn.

Knowledgeable Staff
