I have been going to Chincoteague for 25 years, and most of the time I stay in the Best Western hotel near the Assateague entrance. This year I came with my boyfriend instead of my family and decided to switch things up. Chose the Waterside Inn based on the fishing pier, the swimming pool located on the pier, and the... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Waterside in very much. Clean, comfortable room. The 2nd floor balcony gave me a beautiful view of the sunset. They serve a hot breakfast but the best part is they have some one ask you as so as you enter the office if you'd like waffles and they make them for you. I thought... More

I appreciate the terrific review. No excuses for the bottle cap. I just wish you had told the desk staff. We are trying out some new housekeepers due to various reasons including vacations and maternity and we need to know when they are not up to our high standards. Checking for bottle caps as we speak. I want 5 next... More

Friendly staff, good breakfast, all rooms with a balcony. Hotel was a little far from shopping and restaurants for someone who doesn't walk much, but it was still a good location near the water. Clean rooms and outside area.

We are located about 1/2 mile from the heart of downtown where there are many restaurants and shops and the movie theater. I am glad that you had such a great weekend stay. We are a tank of gas away from many large cities so readers add the Waterside to your list of last minute getaway places. Clean grounds, clean... More

The staff was friendly. Our room was nice with all the amenities we needed. The grounds were clean and the pool was open until 1 am! We did not have the included breakfast because my son has food allergies but it smelled great. I would definitely recommend and stay again.

Thank you for the great review. I am sorry that you were unable to try our breakfast. I do understand about allergies. I am allergic to red dye. (Guess how many things that is in) We do keep a list of ingredients that are in our basic menu items and will produce on request. I know our waffle mix is"... More

I went to the Waterside Inn with a group of friends. We all had a great experience. The rooms are all very comfortable with microwave, fridge, sitting area and deck out the back with a stunning view of the bay. There is a also a wonderful full breakfast included in the room price - toast, waffles, eggs, cereal, tea/coffee/juice. I... More

You mentioned many of the amenities that our customers enjoy. We get a lot of compliments on our breakfast options and believe our customer service is the best available. Your review says a "comfortable retreat in a lovely spot". I don't think I need to say anything else except thank you and we hope you come back soon. More

A lovely hotel with excellent facilities, good parking. Well equipped rooms, lovely views over the sea, and nice sunsets. There is a nice large swimming pool and an indoor jacuzzi. The breakfast was really nice and all of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would go back again

We stayed at this Inn 25 years ago on our honeymoon. We loved it then and we loved it upon our return last week. From the owners to the office staff to the cleaning staff, they were all very personable and professional. The rooms were kept immaculate, and the sunset views from the balcony and the pool are spectacular. Thanks... More

We appreciate the fact that when past customers think about returning to Chincoteague they think of us first. It is a pleasure to reconnect with old friends and customers as well as connect with new ones. We need both to keep our business thriving. Chincoteague is such a special place for so many people and the Waterside is proud to... More

I'm nervous about using unbranded hotels in the USA as they are often not up to scratch. But the Waterside Inn was excellent. As soon as I arrived, it was obvious to me that the owners and the staff take great pride in their business, and that the owners have an instinctive understanding of customer service. The place was spotless,... More

My husbands roses bring pleasure to many people. Our rooms are large with the balconies overlooking the bayfront and the sunsets. Most of our customers appreciate the vanity area that is separate from the bathroom area which allows two people to get ready at the same time. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and took the time to... More

A stay to this quaint, scenic barrier island just shouldn't involve a chain hotel. So I drove into town and found this gem located right along the bay. The clerk was informal, professional, and funny at check-in, and within a few minutes I was catching a glimpse of a pretty late summer sunset from a chair on the private lanai.... More

We enjoy our interaction with our customers. We are constantly changing out our comforters and bedding so unless your grandmother was very progressive for her day I need to find out which room you occupied so I can switch that one. Thanks so much for the great review in such detail. I hope you come back in the near future. More

I had a very relaxing experience staying here. The rooms were very clean and each had a balcony which provided us a great view of the sunset,even from the first floor.
