“Great value”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

We spend one night over the Easter weekend here and liked the place. The owner of the place was very nice and friendly. They offered many recommendations of places to visit and eat.
The room is pretty big and very clean. I liked the fact that there is an additional sink outside of the bathroom. It really helps when we have a family of four. The bed was comfortable. The only downside is that the air conditioner/heat and the fridge is pretty loud. So, I put the AC on Energy Saver mode and unplugged the fridge. The motel is located across the street from the bay where there is a fishing pier extending into the bay.
The breakfast room is fairly small, just a few seats to sit, no tables. The breakfast consist mostly danish, cereal, and instant oatmeal and grits. The coffee was good.
Since we mentioned we'd come back later for lunch, the owner offered us to keep the room in case we need to use it later. We didn't need it. But it was very nice for him to offer.
I'd definitely recommend the motel to my friends.

This was a great little family owned place right near the downtown area of Chincoteague. The owner checked us in and took time to advise us of the area's attraction. The room was very clean and comfortable. The television was a little dated, but the cable worked fine. A great place to stay for the money.

We stayed at Birchwood Motel for a weekend in the fall. The motel is located in a very safe area. The outside was very well kept and clean. The pool and the gazebo were very nice features, I was disappointed we didn't get to use them! The owner was very nice and helpful- he gave us a number of recommendations for activities during our stay on the island. The room was outdated, our bed was creaky, and the room smelled AWFUL! I don't know if it was the cleaning supplies the staff used to clean the room or a mildew/mold but I could not stay in the room without getting sick (to be fair I do have bad allergies). We tried to spend as much time out of the room as possible- I even took a nap in the car because I was too sick to sleep well at night.

Stayed here for one night in early Aug 2011. This is a basic but very clean and comfortable motel, and although rooms may benefit from a refurbishment they are more than adequate for the prices this place is charging. The owner was very helpful and offered a lot of tips on what to do/see in Chincoteague (a truly wonderful place!), and even phoned up local shops for us to see whether anyone was renting parasoles for the beach seen that we'd left ours at home. Breakfast was also nice.

Seen what other establishments on the island charge you for one night I would say that the Birchwood is a pretty good deal and wouldn't hesitate to go back should I be in the area again.

We were looking for a family friendly place to stay & this was it. Our room was very clean. The motel, the grounds and the pool are very well-kept. It is a nice, quiet & lovely place to stay. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely go again!

I really like this hotel! The Birchwood is a very clean and comfortable hotel. It was the most affordable by far. I love the fact that many of the rooms have a small kitchen area that includes a stove and good size fridge. The kitchen is well equipped with pots, pans, dishes and utensils. Everything was clean! This is very helpful when you have two young children and also helps save money so we can spend more on the bigger meals. The pool is clean and wonderful. At night there is an underwater light that changes colors. The kids loved it! There is a long pier that is located across the street that is a part of this hotel. It is wonderful for fishing or catching beautiful sunsets and it stays relatively quiet. My husband fished almost every night on that pier. In the morning you will find a great continental breakfast with assorted pastries, muffins, cinnamon rolls, cereal, juice, milk and coffee. There are swings and also a place for grilling on the grounds. This is not a fancy hotel by far. But, it is clean and comfortable and near the water, which meant alot to me. Housekeeping was great too. Everyday when we left, we would come back to a cleaned up room, vaccumed and neat. The man who helped us the most was the new owner "Rick". He was kind and made sure you were happy with your stay. I feel like I know him now because he was always around.
I noticed in past years the reviews were not so good, but they are under new management now, hopefully more people will try The Birchwood. I know we will be back. Can't beat the price!
