This is our second year visiting the island and our second at this hotel. And I will say this in capitals to get my point across. WE WILL NOT STAY ANYWHERE ELSE. Ever. This hotel has everything you would need. From an incredibly filling breakfast to the nicely heated pool. The staff here is incredible. The front office staff are... More

Arrived at the hotel just as the sun was setting and watched from their dock. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts had a number of warm items. The room was a good size and had a cute little balcony with sliding door access. The only complaint was a slight "motel smell" in the room which I guess... More

We have the best views of the sunsets and the 4th of July fireworks and the rocket launches. We are walking distance to Historic Main St shops and restaurants. We are located about 1 1/2 blocks from the carnival grounds. Thank you for the terrific review. We hope you can return soon. More

I loved my recent stay here at the Waterside Inn. The room was spacious and had a nice deck off of it. The pool and hot tub were clean and perfectly located on the waterfront. Breakfast was ample and the staff were extremely pleasant. First time in Chincoteague but it definitely will not be my last.

We have been around for awhile but customers are still discovering our hotel and Chincoteague. People who have never been here understand the broad appeal. Chincoteague is the quiet alternative to highly commercial resorts areas. The Waterside Inn is located in the quieter part of town but still very close to everything. Thank you for sharing your experience. Hope you... More

The room, staff, and view were all beyond exceptional. Can't wait to return. The staff was very well rounded on where to go and what to take advantage of in the town. Breakfast was fresh and such a variety was given.

The Inn is walking distance to several restaurants and shopping. Its is a short drive to the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge. The amenities were simple but nicely maintained. We really enjoyed a swim in the pool and Jacuzzi after a long day at the beach. Best memories were the spectacular sunsets from the dock and private porches.

I never write reviews but I do depend on other's reviews. We are here for 3 nights and this place is everything I would want in a hotel. We got a room with a water view on the third floor for a very reasonable price. 2 queen beds, spacious room with nice balcony. A good breakfast is also included. Nice... More

This hotel sits longways to the bay. So most of the rooms will have a parking lot view out the front. Decks out the back view the bay, but bring bug spray. Walking distance to restaurants and a great pier, bring rising or crabbing gear. Very friendly staff and average hotel breakfast bar.

This motel really works hard to please its customers. Many things are done right: cheery staff, a good outdoor pool, a semi-private pier, charcoal grills, etc. It's not a five-star resort, but it doesn't pretend to be. A good value and a comfortable stay.
