Family Friendly Hotel in Chincoteague, Virginia – Comfort Suites

I grew up in Annapolis, MD, and spent many summers at the beach, but I never made it to Chincoteague Island.  I can’t believe it!  This is such a quaint and beautiful town, and we are loving our waterfront stay at Comfort Suites Chincoteague.

The view from our balcony

It is tough to find a hotel room that comfortably sleeps a family of five.  Add in beautiful views and a great location, and it is almost impossible.  When we travel, we always try to find a place to stay that has plenty of space, hot breakfast included, and an indoor pool, if at all possible.  Comfort Suites in Chincoteague, VA has all of this and more.

On the sundeck


Chincoteague, VA is the perfect town for a family getaway.  We were minutes from Assateague Island National Seashore (the first National Park we’ve visited!) and the famous wild ponies.  After our delicious hot breakfast at the hotel, we packed up for the beach.  We could barely drag the kids away.  It is such a peaceful, fun spot.

After naptime, we hopped in the car to find a nearby playground.  We ended up at Veterans Memorial Park.  The toddler-friendly playground was perfect for our three, and the lighthouse view was a great way to end our day.


I highly recommend you add Don’s Seafood to your “must do” list.  The cream of crab soup (a local favorite) is so yummy.  Everything we had was delicious.  It is a casual and family-friendly environment.  Don’t forget to take a piece of Smith Island Cake home with you.  It is a real treat.

The Ick Factor

Ya’ll know, cleanliness is super important to me.  My Littles are typical toddlers, and they rough house and play on the floor constantly.  I’m so grossed out when we arrive somewhere, and I feel like I need to Lysol every surface.  I was so relieved to find that Comfort Suites was spotless.  It might be one of the cleanest hotels we’ve ever stayed in.

The Digs

Mom joined us this week, so we stayed three nights in a Double Queen and adjoining King Suite on the first floor. It was furnished with clean carpet, crisp white linens, a shower and tub for the Littles, and modern décor.  They even provided a tub liner to keep the little ones from sliding around.

The rooms are very spacious, and there is plenty of floor space for pack-n-plays or cribs (if you need it) or pre-bedtime laps.

We visited the heated indoor pool.  The kids loved splashing and swimming around with us.  In the warmer months, there is an outdoor pool right on the bay.  It looks like a great way to spend a beautiful summer day.

The staff was extremely nice too.


The Bites

We woke up each day and headed over to the lobby for our yummy hot breakfast.  We enjoyed the scrambled eggs with all the fixings, sausage, waffles, fresh fruit (available all day), oatmeal, toast, bagels, coffee and juice.

Would We Return?

Absolutely!  We had a great visit, and we’ll add this to our list for our next trip to Chincoteague.



If you are looking for a hotel that can conveniently accommodate your family to a trip to Chincoteague, Virginia and surrounding areas, Comfort Suites was a great experience for us.

We received a two-night complimentary stay in exchange for this review.  We loved it so much, we purchased a third night.  All opinions are my own.

  1. What a lovely first ever visit you had to Chincoteague! I see that the property looks chic and comfortable. It indeed is thoughtful of them to provide tub liners. I really have not seen many going the extra mile to see to the needs of the visitors. Being a vegetarian, I may have to stay away from sea-food but a mention of that Smith Island cake made me drool! Thanks for introducing this place through your post.
