Best Western Chincoteague Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. My wife needed some unexpected medical attention and they really seemed to care, which we really appreciated. Additionally, the location is perfect. There is a place to rent bikes right across the street, and the hotel is the closest on the island to the entrance of the nature preserve. Perfect.

I can't say enough about this fabulous place. I would give the whole hotel 100 stars if I could. The setting, the island itself and the surroundings were made even better by the caring, friendly staff here. From the owner watering his landscaping, to staff scrubbing the lobby on their hands and knees, it doesn't get any better than this. Every person there greeted us each day with smiles and "how can I help you". I want to come back again and again. I know they will welcome us back with hugs , that';s how great they are.

Closest point to Assateague island (beach, park, horses, lighthouse) which is where we spent most of our time. Never used the pool but the layout was nice and surrounded by landscaping that kept the area private. Requested a room with a nice view and got a view of the lighthouse on Assateague. A little pricy (even with AAA discount) but the reservation was made last minute. Friendly and fast service, but don't expect to check in early.

We usually rent a home for the week but we only had a couple days to spend at the beach this year. I have always noticed that the BW looked very nice each time I have visited Chincoteague. I was right. Excellent customer service, the friendliest staff I have EVER encountered and a very tidy, clean hotel. Would ABSOLUTELY use this facility again.

The hotel is beautiful and the staff was on point. The room was delightful, comfortable beds, high end linens and pillows, free wifi, coffee and lemonade at all hours, beautiful clean pool and shaded area for morning coffee. This hotel is the last stop to the bridge to the beach, very convienent to everything.

Positives:
Great location and last hotel before the bridge over to Assateague Island. (See notes below re-Assateague Island/Natl Seashore vs- Assateague Natl park!). Anyway, they have bike rentals at the hotel, or bring your own. There are bike paths from the hotel clear to the beach. There are nice paved bike paths throughout the woods (we didn't get to do, again, see notes below). We drove through the area and it's nice.

Hotel staff was nice. Room was clean. BREAKFAST available! Parking good, tight though.

Room has fridge, coffee maker. In and outside sinks by the bathroom. Nice patio too.

Pool and seating. Great views of the bay.

McDonalds across the street. (See Negatives for area food).

Negatives:
Flies in the room, unavoidable, so live with it.

I have nothing negative about the hotel, but the food in the area yes!

We only ate at Maria's. It's an Italian joint minus the Italian! Wish we would have ordered the pizza there seeing that's all everyone else was getting, b/c our food was nasty. There are a couple other places there and that's about it! I can't speak for the seafood joint there, but I wish we would have just spent the $$ and went there. Maria's was gross. Sauce had cinnamon in it (oh my Italian Gmom was rolling in her grave as I choked that down)! YUCK! Husbands fried flounder still had skin! IDK if that is an areal thing or what. Just go to McDonalds and take the diarrhea! lol It will be quick and painless compared to that place!

Skip Mister Whippy's. Go to Island Creamery. I repeat, go to Island Creamery. Mister Whippy's was OK, but it took abut 6 dippy do's to get my 3 ice creams right. I kid you not!

Watch out for the scooter idiots. Although it's a better way to go around, the locals are idiots on the scooters more so than the out of towners.

Notes:
I was confused as to how the fact that Assateague Island is actually pretty big. There are two main ways to access it. The first area is just south of OC Maryland which is 50+ miles before the the hotel and a whole separate turn off. We went there but found there was now lighthouse, paved trails, etc to bike. There are paved trails but they run along the roadside. HOWEVER, there is camping on the beach in that area known as Assateague National Park. There is a fee to enter too ($15) for a day. AND most importantly, we saw more horses up close there. They actually walked right down the road there, and you will see more horses that way versus the trails it seems. You can drive from there down south towards the other entrance area from Chincoteague via Bayberry Dr. I'm not sure if it's only accessible via 4 wheel drive or not since the current satellite view shows a great portion of it is covered in sand.

If you want to bike the paved wooded trails and see the lighthouse, then go from this hotel from Chincoteague to Assateague Island and Assateague National "Seashore". Vehicle entry there is $8/day.

Room Tip: Bottom floor is easier for families toting kids and lots of stuff with them.
