Glad we selected Waterside Inn for an overnight on Chincoteague Island. This is a quiet, relaxing accommodation in a charming small vacation town. The rooms are spacious, immaculately clean, and come with all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. Our favorite aspects of our stay were sitting on our balcony watching the sun set over the Chincoteague Channel and... More

It's a nice quaint hotel in a quiet small seaside town. A minimalist type of hotel meeting the basic needs of travelers; clean and spacious room with comfortable queen size beds. Deco is simple and dated. The included breakfast is plentiful and is served in their reception area at 3 tables with seating for 16. Staff are friendly. They would... More

The staff was super friendly but the rooms are outdated and the guests above us could be heard through the ceiling just walking in their room. House flies were bad all over the island, horse flies, and mosquitoes too. Bring a fly swatted, and plenty of bug repellent. Long pants are needed as well as after bite meds. The dock... More

This was a really cute place. Beds could use some new mattresses and pillows and the tv was a little dark and we could hear the people above us every time the walked around but all in all not a bad place at all. The pool was very nice and we enjoyed using the balcony to watch the storms that... More

I have been to the Waterside many times. It never disappoints! Beautiful views, sunsets. Very clean. Great breakfast. Extremely friendly helpful staff. If you take your boat, you can keep it right there for FREE.

My husband & I had our vacation to Chincoteague planned & booked for several months prior to our trip. But, as always, we left earlier than our scheduled accommodations. We called ahead & were told our regular hotel was booked solid & referred to The Waterside Inn. Even though it was last minute, we called while travelling through Virginia &... More

We have stayed many times at the larger hotels on the island like Hampton Inn and Comfort Inn, but they were a bit too expensive so we took a chance and were pleasantly surprised! The room was a little smaller, but very comfortable and immaculately clean. The room was expertly and efficiently cleaned by pleasant, friendly staff and in the... More
