Spartan but clean room. Very helpful staff. Loved the balcony overlooking the water. Went to watch the launch but cloud cover so only heard it-exciting anyway. Fun to walk Main Street. Even walked the 3 miles to Assateaque-beautiful. Great wraps at something Star on Maddox Blvd. Ask the desk to look at the menu.

We enjoyed everything there is to enjoy about the entire weekend, The area was beautiful, the people at the hotel and the community were helpful and friendly, the food was awesome, the price for the hotel was a real value along with shopping and dining. The wildlife refuge and lighthouse are wonderful. The only problem we had was leaving. Hope... More

The rooms are spacious and well-maintained, the service is friendly and knowledgeable, and the views are spectacular. We also enjoyed the free hot breakfast, which is not something you generally expect from a small independent hotel. The only minor complaint I have is that the ceiling in our 2nd floor room was very squeaky when our 3rd floor neighbors were... More

As a surprise for my birthday, my boyfriend booked a room here. This place is amazing. The rooms are cozy and clean and the view of the bay is phenomenal. One of the things that stood out was how absolutely peaceful it is there. We slept with the balcony door open and all you could hear were the birds, no... More

We often stay here when we visit Chincoteague Island. The Waterside Inn is well maintained and has clean rooms and attentive staff. It is nicely located to the center of Chincoteague, and Assateague Island is a short distance away. Look at their web site for specials and reduced rates.

The staff is pretty fan-freakin-tastic and the room was comfortable. I enjoyed the view from the balcony on the 3rd floor. If you take the elevator you can see the water through the glass wall. I really think this place deserves a hella high five from every nanny spankin' hubba-bolu.

Chincoteague is not your typical Spring break location if you want to go crazy wild. But if you want a safe, quiet, beautiful, natural, place to bring the family we are the destination. The Waterside has an ideal location of being close to many fine restaurants and shops and overlooking the Chincoteague Channel. We hope potential customers read your review... More

The staff is super friendly, from the front desk to the custodial staff to the breakfast staff. The rooms are a bit old, but not dirty. It's all about the location: the water around Chincoteague is beautiful. There is a dock at the hotel, too. It would be fun to bring a kayak and throw it in there. The grounds... More

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Our homemade waffles are always a big hit with our guests. I think our customer service is unparalleled and our location in proximity to everything that Chincoteague has to offer is one of the nicest things about us. We do rotate breakfast items but the waffles are a staple. Weather is... More

This motel is in a good location for chincoteague attractions and dining. The rooms are spotlessly clean and your standard motel fare. Breakfast is served in the reception area. Great waffles made by a very friendly young lady, omelettes and sausage nice too. Reception staff are all very warm and welcoming. Nice views across the bay, amazing sunsets

Of course top floor usually has best views and usually quieter. If the price is not the big issue I think it is the best option. We do have a lovely glass elevator for your convenience. For the rest of April we are running a stay 2 or more nights and get 1 night free. I hope you can return... More
