You can't stay closer to Assateague Island and the National Wildlife Refuge. If you are biking, it is about a mile to the lighthouse trail and about four miles to the main beach. There are bike racks for Inn use behind the Bike Depot right next door to the Inn. The Inn was clean and comfortable and the staff was accommodating, from the reservation process to departure. When I booked, it appeared we would have to change rooms but upon arrival, front desk had note to contrary. The "bones" of the Inn are older but I felt management has done a good job of making it not feel dated. Carpet in the room bordered on plush, beds were soft, air conditioner worked very well. We turned off dehumidifier in room to cut down on noise after we noticed it wasn't drawing much moisture (wasn't particularly humid during our stay plus we had air on during day). Room had refrigerator but no microwave (there was one next to vending machines a few steps from door). Breakfast was adequate and staff worked hard to keep things filled. Seats in the small dining area go quickly. Very picturesque pool setting (although they were battling crepe myrtle blossoms during our stay). Pool did get busy in late afternoons after beach goers returned. Parking lot was full when we returned late on Saturday night so we had to use the overflow parking area. Traveled with two adults and two kids, one aged 14, who was charged as an extra adult.
