Very nice rooms and the staffs are friendly. We had lots of fun and the location is also great it's walking distance everything. The pool is heated ant the pier is a good place for taking photograph. Highly recommended.

Thank you for the great review. We strive for excellence and are glad that you appreciate our efforts. Our location is bayfront and easy walking distance to the Historic Downtown shops and restaurants. Also the newly renovated Island Theater is less than 1/2 mile with first run movies. We hope that you can return in the near future. More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a weekend in late August 2015 and were completely satisfied with our stay. This is by no means a luxury hotel, but when you combine the location, quality, and customer service with the price it is top notch. The rooms are dated in terms of aesthetics but they are very clean and tidy.... More

Location is on the bay with nice views. Pool is next to the bay and docks. Outdoor setup allows to meet other guests. Room is okay. Breakfast is okay in a small space. Recommend if not looking top end.

Great views & balcony! The hot tub & pool were nice but the pool could have used another skimming near the end of the day. Found a roach dead in the dresser (it was the only one) so check the drawers.

Had a great stay with the family. The staff was great and very friendly. They provided breakfast every morning. The pool was located next to the water with great views. The room met all of our needs and was clean. The beds were comfortable. We will be staying again!

My family and I stay here every year when we come down for vacation. I've never been disappointed yet, the accommodations are amazing and the staff is wonderful. I wouldn't listen to the negative reviews, if people aren't staying in a 5 star resort their going to find something to complain about. I personally stay here every year and have... More

I'm sure you have a great business and you should not listen to one bad review and cry over it, people always have something negative to say. You also should've been glad you didn't give a nice room to bad people like them because they don't deserve it.

We checked into the Waterside Inn for a few days on a very last-minute August vacation. The person who took my reservation was quite helpful, and within minutes we had a place to stay on the island! When we arrived, our check-in was quick, pleasant and easy. The room was large and cool, which was important, as I think we... More

We had such a great time in Chincoteague at the Waterside Inn. Everyone at the hotel was so nice and helpful. Rooms were clean and comfortable with a beautiful view. Perfect location near shops and restaurants and a short drive to the beach.
