My sister and I were visiting for the "Search for the Shamrocks" and stayed at Waterside Inn since we had won a free night the previous year. We have an aunt that lives on the island, so we usually don't need accommodations while visiting Chincoteague, but we would recommend staying here. The room was clean and spacious. I love the...

Being there in the off-season, we shared the Waterside Inn with just a few other guests. The view of the bay was exquisitely beautiful. The room was clean, beds comfortable, and staff super courteous and friendly. Will definitely go back.

Clean, warm, comfortable. BEST place to be for Death by Chocolate. Our room's view allowed us to watch the bay recede with the strong winds, and freeze with the sub zero temps of the weekend! We will be back...

Third time I have stayed here since just before Christmas. Always clean and comfortable! Staff is always friendly and helpful. Definitely some place I enjoy staying and relaxing at. I was very surprised at how much fun the Death by Chocolate event was. I hope to be back next year for it.

This family run inn is an excellent value. It is very clean and comfortable. It is nicely located on Main Street. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is a hot and cold breakfast provided for the guests. The price is extremely reasonable. Our room, as all the rooms, have a great view of the water. Our room was large... More

My wife and I and our two teenage boys took an overnight trip to Chincoteague from Northern VA between Christmas and New Year after seeing a Groupon offer for the Waterside Inn. The standard rooms were on offer for around $90 per night but for an extra 10 or 15 bucks we went for what was described as a 2... More

We love the Waterside, we visit at least once every year. It isn't fancy. It is clean and friendly and in a perfect spot. Only a half mile walk from shops and restaurants on Main Street. Perfect sunsets included free of charge.

Great views of the water! Very friendly staff and good breakfast, with fresh waffles. Beds were OK, nice TV and great water pressure in the shower! It was very cold out but staff had turned heat on prior to our arrival, so the room was toasty when we checked in, Will definitely return,

We visit Chincoteague once or twice yearly and used to stay at the Hampton Inn, as we are Hilton Honors program members, but Waterside is such a better value, with a view of the bay and sunsets rather than the new bridge to the island seen from Hampton, that we have started making Waterside our go-to hotel for Chincoteague.
