Everything was lovely the room was spotless and breakfast was great. The staff was super friendly and the location was beautiful. And to be New Year's Eve the price was incredibly affordable. This is not our last stay that's for sure

I love going to a place that is family owned and the property shows pride in ownership. The breakfast is included and has a good variety of food to choose from. The rooms are very clean and the views are amazing especially at sunset.

We went to Chincoteague on a spur of the moment trip and stayed at the Waterside Inn. Laura at the front desk was the reason we stayed there. She was so kind and informative. She gave us her "favorite room" which was very comfortable. She suggested a place for us to eat based on what we wanted and we ended...

We rented one of the two-bedroom condos at Waterside Inn December 26-28, 2016. The condos are in a beautifully restored Victorian house directly across the street from the hotel. There is ample parking behind the house. The units are very nice. Everything is very clean and new. Our condo had a bedroom with a king-size bed and a second bedroom...

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and appreciate that you wrote such a rave review. Our condos are a great option for larger families or longer term rentals.

Lovely room with a view if we had not been there for just one night. The staff was lovely. The only disappointment was the free breakfast; the coffee was bitter and the fruit had been sitting out too long. The free breakfast is a setup that I have seen in other motels but this one was not on par with...

The Waterside Inn is on Main Street and in easy walking distance from where some of the boat tours start. The check-in process went smoothly. The rooms have balconies that look down the Chincoteague Channel. We enjoyed a very pleasant sunset view from the balcony. Our room was clean and somewhat larger than average. The complimentary breakfast was not lavish,...

Thanks for the terrific review. Chincoteague is a special place and we think that the Waterside Inn offers the best opportunity to showcase the town. Our family owned and operated hotel has been around for awhile but our brand of service and hospitality never goes out of style.

My wife and I love our stays at the Waterside Inn. The hotel is very comfortable and has a wonderful view of the Chincoteague Channel. It is close to some fine dining even though we were there during the off season. There is plenty to do and see. My wife and I love visiting the state parks for the ocean,...

I scouted TripAdvisor for a good place for a late Fall trip to Chincoteague Island. Waterside Inn was a perfect place!
