Thank you for the tips on catching, cleaning, and grilling the fish and crabs that you caught from our pier. You cant get much fresher than that. We think all of our rooms are nice but you recommended the nicest ones for sure. We are looking forward to you becoming one of our many repeat customers. Thanks again for the... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Waterside. We had hoped to make a last minute weekend get-a-way and there was space available. What luck. Large room, nice deck, very clean. beds were comfortable. Loved the waffles for breakfast. Wished I could have stayed longer. Will definitely stay again

We all know how stressful family events can be. I am glad that you discovered us and were able to relax prior to your event. A lot people use the Waterside as a central meeting place for reunions or just to hook up with family or old friends for a few days. Chincoteague is great place to relax and refuel.... More

On a last minute whim we decided to stop in Chincoteague for a couple of days to relax prior to a stressful family event. Great location on the water with a pier to fish or crab from and a fantastic place to see the sunset. There is a pool located waterfront and you have nice views from your balcony. A... More

We really appreciate the great review. Even though we have been around for awhile we are still being discovered by visitors who have been coming to Chincoteague for many years. We are located close to everything but in a quiet part of town. You can watch the sunset, fish or crab from the dock, swim until late, walk to restaurants,... More

Just stayed 4 days and really liked it. The room was the fourth from the water and had a really nice view of the bay, but most of them must have that because of the angle of the building. But the closer your room number is to x15 the better.... Everything was clean. Breakfast was surprisingly good for a fairly... More

Thank you for writing the review. One of our tag lines is "be seduced by the sights and sounds of nature" which of course includes seagulls. We are constantly adding things to keep our hotel looking new and keeping up with the trends. It has been a very busy summer. When you return I am sure there will be many... More

Clean, friendly and excellent location and full breakfast. Plenty of free parking and nice pool and dock area for viewing sunsets, fishing or just relaxing. There are two nice restaurants within walking distance and a third, also on Chincoteague, that was worth the short drive.

This was my first trip to Chincoteague and I wanted to stay someplace that wasn't a vanilla chain hotel. Waterside delivered. Although this is obviously not a brand new building, everything was upgraded nicely, wi-fi worked great for free, very clean and had the character I was looking for. We had a beautiful view of the water and sunsets and... More

It is hard to say anything but thank you very much for that terrific review. It is good to be different and nobody ever accused me of being vanilla. Thanks, I like your analogies. I will look forward to a future visit from you. More

Nice room with refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, comfortable beds, well appointed and clean bathroom. The complementary breakfast was of good quality, with a decent selection. The juice and coffee are better than most hotels. The free Wifi works well.

I like that you cut to the chase. A person in a hurry could read this review and know that their needs would be exceeded. Wi-Fi is broad band, coffee is Folgers, breakfast items rotate but all are high quality and fresh and served with a smile. Waterview is the Chincoteague Channel. We hope you come back soon and bring... More

This was by far a great place to stay quiet and relaxation at its best . The front office personal was great and we're very nice and friendly. The room was awesome and never heard a sound from other guest I'd recommend this hotel to other people who want to have a quiet relaxing time.

We are located 1 mile south of the traffic light at the foot of the last bridge coming to Chincoteague, passing through the newly beautifully redone Historic Downtown District. We are close to many shops and restaurants but far enough away from the high commercial area to be quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. I am glad that you enjoyed your vacation... More

This was our 3rd year staying at Waterside Inn and wouldn't stay anywhere else on Chincoteague! The friendly staff makes your stay in addition to the best sunset views, best fireworks display, and easy walking or bicycling to the carnival grounds or shopping/dining at Bills! Highly recommend Bill's Seafood too! The boat slips are also great since my husband brings... More

From Donna, Lindsey, Lauren, and Ruthann, thank you. The fourth of July fireworks are amazing for such a small town and the view from our dock or the balconies of our rooms is unparalleled. We tell our customers to keep their cars parked in the parking lot and walk to the carnival grounds but to return to the hotel to... More
