My wife and I spent 2 wonderful nights here the 25th and 26th of August.. Cozy, friendly, nice pool, nice free breakfast. Nice room with beautiful view of the bay from the balcony porch. Yes it is a bit old but clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly. About a 15 minute ride to Assateague National seashore. After Chincoteague and... More

The staff is very friendly and the room my daughter and I stayed in was spacious and comfortable. We especially loved the balcony view of the bay. The breakfast was adequate for a hotel breakfast. No water was available though. The location on Main Street was great and close to a wonderful new restaurant, Jackspot, where we ate dinner twice.

The Waterside Inn is friendly, well-kept and convenient. We had a problem with the booking agent but when I called the Inn directly, they resolved the issue quickly and easily. Breakfast was yummy, and they had an extra beach pass that they shard with us. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back

We just returned from a week at the Waterside Inn in Chincoteague. There were 17 of us ranging in ages from 8 to 73 and we all had a great time. The hotel and the town were full of cheerful, helpful people. Breakfast was good and the younger ones enjoyed the pier while the older ones loved relaxing by the... More

I am glad that you enjoyed your stay as much as we enjoyed your family. I know we made a lot of suggestions for dining options and things to do and received your feed back. Almost all of it was positive. When there are that many people traveling together chances are someone is going to find something that they don't... More

We with a family of high school senior girls went on a one-day trip and stayed here for a night. The location is just at the waterside as the name suggests. Offered a wonderful view of the bay. Met with a helpful and friendly staff. Would like to stay here again.

I have never been to Chincoteague before my trip this past week. My family always visited Ocean City growing up, but the hotels at Chincoteague were much more affordable with more amenities, so I figured I'd give it a shot. I was so impressed with everything about this hotel! The price was very reasonable, the location was great (right on... More

It is nice to be discovered for the first time and get a new perspective. Thank you for the terrific review. We believe that with 3 floors and an elevator as well as condos we can solve everyone's accommodation desires.

The Waterside Inn is filled with personal touches that make it feel more like visiting friends than staying at a hotel. My teens were very happy and comfortable, and we all slept very well so that we could enjoy the next day. My daughter enjoyed "night swimming" in the pool, located right next to the bay. My son enjoyed the... More

All the rooms have a great view across the bay of NASA's Wollops launch pad. The scheduled lift-off was postponed, unfortunately, so we missed the show. Wish we could have stayed longer. But, thanks to the friendly hotel staff for the great tip to see the last of the summer's weanlings at the carnival grounds, our visit was still quite... More

Thank you for highlighting the benefits of our unique location. You would have had a magnificent view of the launch if it had happened on time, too bad, but a good reason to return. Also walking distance to see the ponies makes us the happening place to be. The little babies who were too young to be separated from their... More

Clean rooms, pool and a very friendly staff! It is a great place to take your family! There is a lovely bayside pool and picnic tables to eat on near the dock. Rooms are spotless and the maid service is super. All rooms face to the south overlooking the bay from your private balcony. Hotel is landscaped with every color... More

Thank you for the terrific review. The roses are admired by all of our guests as well as residents and other visitors. Trip Advisor readers, if you grow roses, stop by some early morning when my husband is tending his babies and he will be glad to discuss his strategies and we will share a copy of his "Rose Recipe'....

I dreamed of visiting Chincoteague Island for years and had read all the Marguerite Henry books as a little girl so was thrilled to get to visit in July! I chose the Waterside Inn after researching Trip Advisor. The staff was very nice, we stayed on the 2nd floor with a great view of the bay and the roses are... More
