It's unfortunate that I lay here in bed unable to sleep writing this review while at the hotel. The beds are rock solid and just too hard to get a comfortable sleep. My husband and I paid for the whole weekend, but will be leaving after 1 night. Otherwise, the room is a decent size and is dated, but cute.... More

My wife and I stayed at the Waterside Inn this weekend. The room was perfect, we sat on the balcony and enjoyed cocktails after a feast of "Chincoteague Salts" at Don's watching the sunset and waterfowl. The staff was exceptional as well. My wife and I will definitely be repeat customers in the future. A very relaxing visit.

The room was much bigger then I expected and like I mentioned before, VERY CLEAN! We had a room with a facing view of the bay.... More

concierge was rude, but the hotel was wonderful. Not my first time there, and it won't be my last. Morning check out lady was very polite and allowed for an extra hour, unfortunately the night shift made me feel uncomfortable. I love this hotel and decided to stay on my birthday, but I wish I felt more welcome.

This place was a wonderful place to stay on Chincoteague. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They steered us to 3 good places to eat and we were happy they did, because there is a lot to choose from and we had no idea what was good. We just stayed one night to break up a long drive, but...

We loved our room. It wasn't luxurious, but it was clean and had everything we needed (fridge, big bed, plenty of space) and the balcony with the view of the ocean made it the perfect place to have lunch. The staff was very helpful in helping find places to have dinner. Most of the restaraunts in

The hotel is an older one but it isn't falling down. It isn't exactly luxurious either, but that's fine. The mattress was comfortable and the room is a good size. There's a fridge and microwave plus a small dining table and settee. I wasn't able to stay for breakfast--a full hot breakfast is offered in the lobby. I loved my... More

Honestly, I can't say enough good things about Waterside Inn. The location is great with a beautiful view of the water. The sunsets were spectacular. It's within walking distance of some interesting shops. The rooms are updated and clean. The beds are comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. What else could you want?! I've been there twice and already... More

My wife and I were visiting friends on the Island and needed a place to stay, another friend suggested the Waterside Inn. What a great choice, the room was clean and spacious and the view of the Sunset was spectacular. If you are ever considering a trip to Chincoteague Island you owe it to yourself to check out the Waterside... More
