Every summer, at least once a summer, we travel to Chincoteague Virginia to see family. I have been coming to Chincoteague all of my 43 years. In those years we have tried pretty much all the hotels on the island. However, approx. 12 years ago my family recommended that we stay at the Waterside. They are friends with the owners, who are LOCALS so, naturally we want to support friends of the family and residents of what I consider "my happy place".
What an amazing experience we have each and every year. Greeted by Miss Donna, who is always super friendly and helpful beyond imagination. Miss Sharon who works there as well is awesome. These ladies are so sweet and so much fun. I love the greetings we get as soon as we walk in the front door. It begins even before that, if we make our reservations from home, they know who we are, how many children we have traveling with us and that we like to be near the pool. Which, I would like to add is open and heated until well past midnight. Something about relaxing by the pool and making memories with my family. Mr Donnie has the most beautiful roses surrounding the hotel.
Now, the hotel itself is CLEAN, and always updated-with free wi-fi. The staff who do the agonizing job of housekeeping always have something pleasant to say as you pass. The rooms are always fresh, clean, and done quickly. I feel safe completely unpacking my things into the dressers, cant say that about every place. The pool is always clean, with plenty of chairs and tables surrounding the pool area. Picnic tables and grills are provided, and is something we take advantage of each year. They provide breakfast, which makes the Waterside a deal that can't be beat.
I can honestly say that the Waterside Inn is the best hotel on Chincoteague. I love checking in and knowing that I am going to see the same people year after year, and have some laughs with them and feel welcomed and like they are glad to see us. I feel safe, hotel is well light with ample parking. The location is wonderful, walking distance to downtown, grocer stores, shopping, trolley stop is right there, and carnival grounds are super close. And great views from the dock.
this year alone our family from Las Vegas, Colorado and us from PA will be spending a week at the Waterside. We can't wait, and wouldn't stay any place else.
