Friendly staff, good breakfast, all rooms with a balcony. Hotel was a little far from shopping and restaurants for someone who doesn't walk much, but it was still a good location near the water. Clean rooms and outside area.

The staff was friendly. Our room was nice with all the amenities we needed. The grounds were clean and the pool was open until 1 am! We did not have the included breakfast because my son has food allergies but it smelled great. I would definitely recommend and stay again.

I went to the Waterside Inn with a group of friends. We all had a great experience. The rooms are all very comfortable with microwave, fridge, sitting area and deck out the back with a stunning view of the bay. There is a also a wonderful full breakfast included in the room price - toast, waffles, eggs, cereal, tea/coffee/juice. I... More

A lovely hotel with excellent facilities, good parking. Well equipped rooms, lovely views over the sea, and nice sunsets. There is a nice large swimming pool and an indoor jacuzzi. The breakfast was really nice and all of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would go back again

We stayed at this Inn 25 years ago on our honeymoon. We loved it then and we loved it upon our return last week. From the owners to the office staff to the cleaning staff, they were all very personable and professional. The rooms were kept immaculate, and the sunset views from the balcony and the pool are spectacular. Thanks... More

I'm nervous about using unbranded hotels in the USA as they are often not up to scratch. But the Waterside Inn was excellent. As soon as I arrived, it was obvious to me that the owners and the staff take great pride in their business, and that the owners have an instinctive understanding of customer service. The place was spotless,... More

A stay to this quaint, scenic barrier island just shouldn't involve a chain hotel. So I drove into town and found this gem located right along the bay. The clerk was informal, professional, and funny at check-in, and within a few minutes I was catching a glimpse of a pretty late summer sunset from a chair on the private lanai.... More

We enjoy our interaction with our customers. We are constantly changing out our comforters and bedding so unless your grandmother was very progressive for her day I need to find out which room you occupied so I can switch that one. Thanks so much for the great review in such detail. I hope you come back in the near future. More

I had a very relaxing experience staying here. The rooms were very clean and each had a balcony which provided us a great view of the sunset,even from the first floor. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful..spent the afternoon lounging at the pool that sits bayside. I also enjoyed the breakfast, which you were more than welcome to take... More

We first came across The Waterside about 15 years ago and found a wonderful place to stay! The staff was extremely friendly and more then accommodating! The rooms were very clean and fully stocked! The views are breath taking from your balcony or down on the dock! The pool is clean and the extended hours are great! Over the years... More

That was straight to the point and boy do I like your points. Thank you for saying everything that I wanted to hear. It has been a very long busy summer and my staff has worked and continues to work very hard to keep the level of service up to our high standards. Thank you for appreciating the special things...
