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. We are still being discovered and appreciate the new customers who become...

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! This Inn is open all year long and has special deals throughout the winter season on the Inn's rooms and also on the 4 suites across the street in their Victorian Home location. In the Inn, my husband and...

The waterfront location and the design of the building with the balconies on the backside provide great views for photos and relaxing anytime of day. Friendly greeting on arrival. The staff on duty helped us find the restaurant we were planning on for dinner and called to make sure they'd be open by the time we got there. Room was...

Had booked a bit at random among the accomodation offered at Chincoteague, and hit the right one for me. Room and setting were ideal for me, breakfast plentiful and tasteful. Excellent advice on nearby restaurants. One last point: they did find a pair of shoes in my room after I had left and called me to let me know: not...

Found this motel years ago when we needed a place to stop on the way south. We enjoy returning year after year....they are always updating linens etc, to keep it fresh. The sunset views from the decks are wonderful and they even have comfortable chairs...not those plastic stack-able things. The pool is heated so I get to take a dip...
