We visit Chincoteague once or twice yearly and used to stay at the Hampton Inn, as we are Hilton Honors program members, but Waterside is such a better value, with a view of the bay and sunsets rather than the new bridge to the island seen from Hampton, that we have started making Waterside our go-to hotel for Chincoteague.

We went here on a spur of the moment trip to Chincoteague. We were very pleased with the Waterside. It was exceptionally clean, comfortable and had breakfast!! The hot tub was so luxurious after a really cold, and windy day geocaching the Island. Our room was near the dock end of the building. Quiet with beautiful sunsets. We definitely would... More

We just spent a weekend in Chincoteague to enjoy the quiet of winter. Our stay at the Waterside Inn was perfect. The hotel room was very clean, nicely decorated and had great views. The beds were comfortable. The staff was terrific and the breakfast in the morning was filling and attentively prepared. This place is an excellent value in the... More

I have stayed at this hotel twice now and both times the experience was very pleasant. The staff are polite, friendly and, knowledgeable. There are great views of the water from the rooms and I've seen some very pretty sunsets there. The location is about a 5 minute drive from Chincoteague and walking distance to numerous shops and restaurants. I... More

Perfect location in Chincoteague. Our large second floor room with small porch overlooking the water was so peaceful, the views of the sunset were unbelievable and the changing tides mesmerizing. There were even ceramic mugs instead of the usual disposable cups for coffee and tea. The staff were friendly and helpful and the full breakfast excellent. We were there in... More

When we return to Chincoteague Island, we'll definitely return to the Waterside because the location overlooking the bay is excellent. Our first floor room with a small porch overlooking the bay is lovely. The hosts and staff are friendly, helpful and informative.The area is quiet. The hot breakfast with eggs, sausage and waffles was excellent. The attention to detail is... More

Nice accommodations with a view of the bay looking right at the Wallops Flight Center for rocket launches. Great value, very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful staff. Rooms are a little worn and dated but perfect for the price and location.

Thank you for taking the time to write the review. What I find as I travel is that all hotels are a work in progress. Even brand new hotels require constant care and updates and at the Waterside we try our best to set the standard and stay ahead of the trends. We are just finishing an extremely busy summer... More

We have stayed at the Waterside several times and always had a good experience. We will stay there again. The front desk staff is friendly, the rooms are large, the view is nice, and the price is right. I do recommend that you book early, however, and get a room on the top (third) floor. Those rooms have the best... More

This was our second trip to Chincoteague and our second stay at the Waterside Inn. We love the peaceful atmosphere and the amazing sunset views. Our 3rd floor room was very quiet and had beautiful views of the sunset. The Inn is located within walking distance of many shops and restaurants. Free breakfast with delicious waffles is an added perk!... More
