This clean and roomy inn sits right on the channel. Every room has a water view and small deck to watch the beautiful Chincoteague sunsets. The staff treated the guests like old friends. And the elevator was a great surprise! Local restaurants and shops are within walking distance, as was the annual carnival. What a delightful place to stay! We... More

Booked on Internet, got to Hotel, Room was unacceptable, dark, dingy looking, 2 seat sofa was draped with some kind of cover that probably his a multitude of dirt and wear, scuffed furniture, lighting was very poor(needed more light fixtures and brighter light bulbs!), bath was not inviting at all. Asked for money return and would find another Hotel. Staff... More

The pros: walking distance to shops and restaurants. Beautiful water views. Lovely pier for fishing and sunset views. Clean. Small outdoor pool (we were told it's heated to 80 degrees, but not sure that was functioning). The cons: really poor breakfasts (canned fruit, previously-frozen eggs), rooms that felt dated and tired.

My wife and I took a short vacation and the staff at the Waterside was fantastic. The room was just perfect. It was good and clean,the air conditioner was ice cold. We would differently stay there again.

I decided to take my children on a short jaunt to Chincoteague Island this past July. I usually stay in hotels that have a minimum 3-star rating, but the reviews for Waterside Inn seemed much more favorable than the current 2-star status. I took a chance and it turned out to be the best travel gamble I ever made. The... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Waterside Inn. The view from the balcony was excellent and the pier in the back was a great place to sit and watch the stunning sunsets over the water. The ducks and herons added a lot of charm, as well as the amazing rose bushes around the property. It was an enjoyable experience... More

Great family time was had here, great personnel at the front desk and during breakfast, great water access via the dock - we got to fish and crab and a great bay view from room. Sunsets were awesome and the pool was excellent!

I stayed there for work; it was one of the few hotels that would accept government per diem rates this time of year (week before the Pony Penning on Chincoteague). There is no work area set up in the rooms so they are not business oriented, but that is the only drawback. I found this hotel to be comfortable and... More

We stayed here for two nights and had a lovely time. The rooms were a good size and the bed was comfortable. We enjoyed good use of the pool and sun beds - there was also a jacuzzi and gym room. The winner for us was, as the name suggests, the waterside view. It was lovely to see the sunset... More

Stayed at the Waterside Inn this past weekend and had a great time. I've stayed at the Waterside Inn on previous visits to Chincoteague, Va and although the rooms are a bit outdated they're always clean and comfortable for the price. The staff is great and always friendly. The pool has a great location overlooking the bay . The breakfast... More
