We stayed for 2 nights celebrating our anniversary. We stayed in a double queen room on the 3rd floor. Very clean and nice view from balcony. Coffee maker was a 1-2 cup brew system as opposed to a keurig which we have been spoiled on. The second night we moved to the 2nd floor suite. WOW! Beautiful room, very comfortable... More

First I must say I am only giving it an average rating because of the view and the breakfast. Second the bathroom sink and shower we're disgusting. I am so pissed that I am doing this review a day before I leave. I had a cut that bled through the bandage on Monday night and I didn't get maid service... More

This is a nice hotel in a beautiful location. Great dining a short walk away at Bill's. Waterside pool entices you to linger until the last minute. My only problem was with the over crowded breakfast area which made it hard to enjoy. Next trip we will breakfast elsewhere.

We had three great days on Chincoteague, spent two nights at the Waterside Inn. It is just slightly dated furnishings wise, but very comfortable and clean. Nice setting with dock and swimming pool. Wonderful breakfast, don't miss the waffles! Take a 2nd or 3rd floor room for the view; there is an elevator.

We spent two days at this hotel. The rooms were very clean and we could not hear any noise from neighboring rooms, even though the hotel was mostly full. All the rooms have semi-private balconies that face the water.The flowers were amazing and even our 12 year son was impressed enough to take several pictures of the flowers with his... More

The description on Google Maps for this hotel is: ""Budget Lodging with a Fishing Dock," which is accurate. We paid $180/night for 2 Queen beds, when we would have paid $250/night at Hampton Inn a few blocks away. The Waterside Inn is on the outskirts of downtown (close to the Carnival grounds), which is too far to walk for dinner... More

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful! The flowers around the hotel were beautiful and the view from our room was nothing short of amazing! :-) We will definitely stay here again when we visit Chincoteague! I highly recommend Waterside Inn!

We stayed one night in June and were very pleased. The front desk ladies were very pleasant and helpful. They were a great first impression for the hotel. The room was very clean, nice and quiet, had a nice view of water and beds were nice and comfortable. The hotel location was A+. You could walk to quaint town, restaurants... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. It is an older hotel but very clean and the staff couldn't have been nicer. They have breakfast each morning too. Nice waterside pool and a dock. Location is convenient on Main Street and you could walk if you wanted to. We had a great time.
