I stayed again at this BW twice recently, first to watch the launch of the Antares rocket (Nov 17) and then to watch the Geminids meteor shower (Dec 11). Best location in the island! A 2 minute walk to the bridge at the entrance of the Wildlife Refuge provides an unobstructed view of the launch (best kept secret, I am feeling guilty for making this public). No need to drive to the Wallops Island visitor center and fight traffic there. For meteor shower watching, a spot on the bridge past the barrier offers a decent view (blocking lights from the nearby McDonalds and lighthouse). Otherwise, the causeway is a short drive away. For Wildlife Refuge visitors, one can just walk or bike into the Refuge from the hotel.
Besides location, the friendliness of the staff and the impecable rooms make this Best Western a great choice for a stay in Chincoteague. less

Greetings from Chincoteague Ana. Thank you so much for your awesome review. It's very exciting to watch the launch since we have a great view of the launch pad from the hotel. Folks enjoy that we are the closest accommodation to the Wildlife Refuge and the easy walking, biking or driving to Assateague. We appreciate your stay with us and look forward to your next visit with us.
