Stayed one night in room 308 that had 2 double beds and a stunning sunset view. Balcony allowed enjoying the southern view of the bay. Good breakfast and friendly staff made the stay enjoyable and fast wifi also allowed to get efficiently some work done before being on my way. Would return.

My wife and I stayed at the Waterside Inn for two nights and were very pleased with the accommodations. The people working the front desk were extremely pleasant and helpful, providing fantastic dining suggestions and recommending activities which we otherwise would have missed (an art walk and a pony roundup). The Inn is on the water and all rooms have... More

My boyfriend and I stayed two nights recently and fell in love. I've never written a review before but this place was so nice that I felt compelled to. The staff was so welcoming and helpful. They made fresh breakfast in the morning and were so kind. It's nice to know that it's owned by locals, it made me feel... More

We appreciate you taking the time to write such a great review. It is gratifying how quickly new customers become old friends. The weather is getting warmer and more beautiful everyday. Sunsets are so pretty this time of year and the afterglow is even better. Consider coming for a rocket launch. Next one is scheduled for May 6,.2014. I personally... More

I should qualify this review by saying we only stayed here one night in the off season, but we were very impressed. The staff is friendly and everything is very clean. There is obviously attention to detail. Wi Fi was reception was reliable. The view from the balcony and room of the water is outstanding. Prices are reasonable. Great place... More

Thank you for the great review. It is always nice when new people discover us. I hope that the next time you come you can stay longer. Our roses will be in full bloom and the crabs will start to run soon. The sunsets are different in each of the four seasons but always beautiful. More

Every summer, at least once a summer, we travel to Chincoteague Virginia to see family. I have been coming to Chincoteague all of my 43 years. In those years we have tried pretty much all the hotels on the island. However, approx. 12 years ago my family recommended that we stay at the Waterside. They are friends with the owners,... More

I have stayed at the Waterside Inn in both summer and the "off season" both were fantastic! I wanted to take my mattress home with me- most comfortable ever!

Thanks for the great review. It is pretty quiet this time of year but what a good opportunity to escape the pressure of the season. It can be a "staycation". You can travel less than an hour away and feel like you are in a different world. Relax with your Kindle or e-reader or go to one of the matinees... More

I stayed here because of the close proximity to the Wallops Island launch facility. I couldn't believe that I could see the launch pad from the balcony of my room. I was able to watch the launch of the Anteres rocket on 1/9 from my room and it was amazing! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room (and... More

This is probably one of the cleanest rooms that I have ever stayed in. However, if you are the type of person who likes new and modern, this is not for you. The furniture is older and definitely dated, but in very good condition. The service at this inn is exceptional and breakfast is even included. It is styled after... More

We have been staying at Waterside twice a year for the past 5 years -- the waterside location, deck/balcony, views of the channel, awesome staff in the office and housekeeping are superb.
