“Bad rooms and cleanliness, but friendly staff”
Reviewed 28 July 2013 via mobile

We came in the height of summer, and knew we would pay high rates. But we did not get much for $200 per night. The room smelled moldy, and the bathroom smelled like a locker room. When we opened the jammed door to the room, flies were already inside. The beds were old and wobbled. The air conditioning made mostly noise and little cool air. A pet peeve of mine, there was only a blackout curtain to give you privacy from the outdoor walkway (so we could never see out the window.) There were stains in the hallway that took a long time before they were cleaned.

Still, the people who worked there were all very friendly. One of them even brought out breakfast for me when I arrived late. This hotel needs a massive upgrading to be worth these rates.

My wife and I stayed here for the weekend, we had the idea it was closer to ocean city md. its not. We stayed any way had a great weekend, it was very close to beach, had some great meals in area resturants, decided we would come back again after swinging through ovean city, We decided to go back to Chincoteague. It was friendlier, calmer, less hectic, less comercial, and cozier. the staff was very friendly, courtious, and accomidating. the pool was very nice. The rooms was clean, did not have any moldy smell. Parking seemed to be at a premium. When we return next year, it would be nice if their rooms offered kitchen facilitys so we could bring our daughters four children so we dont break the bank feeding them.

We arrived on Friday eve, the weekend before the famous Pony Swim. A very lovely area, older buildings, but well kept. Clean comfortable, walking distance to whatever you might need. Bikes and scooters for rent, food, shopping and great ice cream! Lots of people, but no issues with noise or outside activities during sleep hours. Decent continental breakfast. Desk helpful, friendly and accommodating. I will go back, and soon!

Room Tip: A/C ran non stop, but it was a super hot weekend. We had comfort, which was most important. Rooms h...

Staff were extremely friendly and helpful! Beds were comfortable. Breakfast included make-your-own waffles, breads & muffins, cereals, juices, coffee, tea, fruit, hard-boiled eggs, etc. The pool is nice for a family with poolside towels and loungers.

My husband and I stayed at the hotel on the 4th of July. We originally picked this hotel because they are pet friendly but ended up not bringing our dog last minute. Even though all rooms at the hotel are pet friendly, our room did not smell like dogs at all - which was great! We stayed in room 208 - the room was very big and has the look of a log cabin! We were also able to see the fireworks from right outside our door, which even had a cute bench to sit on! We ordered pizza from Famous Pizza (they delivered) and opened a bottle of wine and enjoyed the fireworks.

As for the rest of the hotel, the lobby is very clean and welcoming. They have coffee out I believe all the time. There is also a huge display with pamphlets on things to do in the area. The breakfast area was a good size and seemed to have a good selection, however we did not have anything there. There is a pool right out front that is open until 10p each night. It is very clean and good sized with some gazebos attached if you don't want to sit in the sun. There is also a horse that lives in the back of the hotel. She is very sweet and you can go visit her anytime you'd like.

The location is on one of the two main roads in Chincoteague. It's too far away to walk to the Wildlife Refuge but if you had bikes with you it is definitely biking distance. it is walking distance from a few restaurants like Wave House Grill, Captain Zach's, Steamers and Island Creamery. There are also a few souvenir shops within walking distance.

I highly recommend this hotel. The price was great, hotel desk staff was super friendly and the room was clean and comfy. Plus you can bring your dog with you if you want too!

We just completed our second stay at Rodeway Inn Chincoteague. We spent our weekend in Assateague (Maryland side) but we decided to return to this hotel (an hour away from Assateague MD) again because of the surprisingly nice experience we had on our first visit in May.

The rooms are large and clean. The bathroom and sink areas are especially clean. The fridge and microwave are an unexpected bonus. The beds, sheets and blanket are clean and fresh. The parking lot, walkways and breakfast area are very well maintained and litter-free. Our dog was allowed to stay with us, which was a great bonus. It was $15 extra for the dog, but we considered that fee to be on-par with pet fees at comparable hotels. There is free wifi and the folks at the front desk have always been especially helpful.

An award-winning ice cream shop is a 30-second stroll away from the hotel! Their ice cream flavors are delicious and creative. We waited in the line that was out the door and it was worth it! We decided to take our ice cream treats back to our room because the shop is literally next door to the hotel.

Room Tip: Try to stay on the second floor, if possible. You can sometimes hear kids jumping and running in the...

This is the second time we stay here. As a rule, we prefer to rent homes. But the motel ended up being just fine. Maid service all the time. Great solid breakfast to start the day. Good location. Friendly staff deserves every tip you give.
No complaints!!
