The Waterside Inn is a smaller seaside inn. My family of 6 rented one of the condos for one week following our visit to Disney for a period of recovery. I had notified the office when making the reservation that my party would be 6 and they advised that we needed to book a condo. Upon arriving I noticed that there was one larger bed, two twins and one roll away. We did check the couch and it appearred to be a pull out bed so we tried to pull it out. We didn't even get it half way out and it stopped moving and became stuck. The couch was now unusable. We called the office and they brought up another roll away bed. They didn't know the couch was a sofabed. I found out later that the condos are not owned by the Waterside. They are owned by consumers who rent them out. The Waterside takes care of them I do believe.
It took about 2 days but they did replace the couch and for our wait and for the calm way we handled the wait they discounted us.
Other than this, the trip was wonderful. The room was clean, but so you know, housekeeping does not clean the rooms daily in the condos. They will change your garbage and bring you towels.
The owners host a small outing once per week that is very nice. The beach was right there so we went each day. Hope you like shelling. It is impossible to even get to the water without seeing and touching many shells.
Don't take this as a negative review. I enjoyed and so did my family. It was relaxing and enjoyable, but I also don't want to state perfection. If you are looking for the Hilton, you will not find that here, but if you are looking for family fun and relaxation in a quaint inn. This is your place.
