View Shuttle Launches & Explore Chincoteague Island
Guests of our Chincoteague Island hotel continually revel in the beautiful views and outstanding outdoor recreation surrounding us. Not to mention, of all the hotels near Wallops Flight Facility, our award-winning BEST WESTERN PLUS Chincoteague Island is one of the closest. So book a room, enjoy the scenic views, and don’t forget to take advantage of our hotel amenities available to all esteemed guests.
One of NASA’s premier launch sites, the Wallops Flight Facility is located just about ten miles from our hotel and has hosted roughly 16,000 rocket launches since its inception. See for yourself when you book a room with us – our guests can view the launches from the safety and comfort of their hotel balcony. That’s not the only view, however. Be on the lookout for nearby landmarks like the Assateague Lighthouse and the Assateague Channel in view from your balcony as well.
We’re also the closest hotel to the Chincoteague Wildlife Refuge. The refuge features 14,000 acres of dunes, marshes, and wetland forest acting as the home to numerous rare and native species. Guests are encouraged to stop by the refuge and explore the habitat during their visit. For further outdoor exploration, consult our 24-hour front desk about the nearby beach fun and seemingly endless outdoor exploration on Chincoteague Island.
With so much to do on Chincoteague Island, you’ll surely need a comfortable hotel room to return to. Luckily, we offer our guests more than enough comfort and relaxation after exploring the island – unwind with a few laps in the outdoor swimming pool, fire up your mobile device with wireless Internet, and take advantage of our local shuttle available during the summer months 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. for convenient island exploration.
