My wife and I came down to Chincoteaque for the Minotaur I Rocket launch on November 19. We found our rooms to be spacious and very comfortable. We had dinner at Bill's Seafood Restaurant up the street, which I though had good but not great food, and a bit overpriced. We came back in time to check the view from our South-facing balcony and discovered that we were just a bit too far back from the water to have a clear view of the launch pad. So we walked out along the Inn's 100 yard dock/fishing pier and set up to watch the launch from there. When we learned the launch had been delayed, we walked back to the Inn and met Donna, the delightfully warm and friendly owner of Waterside. She shared with us stories about earlier launches and said that NASA had selected Waterside as a site for one of their knowledgeable docents to give talks about the LADEE Mission and its rocket launch earlier this year.

We saw the rocket go up-- a clear view of the pad across the open water and a spectacular sight. This is an experience you want to do at least once in your life: watch a rocket launch from the Waterside Inn pier!

After the launch it was back to the room, a bit or reading, and bed. Comfortable firm beds ( I admit we like ours a bit softer) and a quiet night. The next morning we enjoyed a hearty breakfast on the house: Sausage patties, scrambled eggs, and some of the best biscuits and gravy we've had in a long time. Good coffee and tea. We passed on the mini-Belgian waffles only because we were too full. Also available were fresh oranges, canned peaches, doughnuts and muffins, bagels, rolls, English muffins... really, there was something for nearly every appetite.

While we were there it appeared that locals would come in to share their views on the launch and we and other guests sat together and chatted as if we'd been friends all along.

I think you'll find A truly delightful visit when you stay and the Waterside Inn. We plan to come back for other launches and in warmer weather to enjoy their pool.

Room Tip: If you want to watch a rocket launch from the comfort of you own balcony, get a room on the second o...

Waterside Inn is a great place to stay while in Chincoteague Virginia. Very clean, well kept. The staff is very friendly and knowlegable. They have a very nice breakfast. Will return again. View from the deck is outstanding.

Amazing place overlooking the Chincoteague Bay! great amenities & super friendly staff. I do lots of travel on business or pleasure all over the US and this by far is one of the best places I ever stayed. Fun, peaceful, awesome sunsets... Working out is more fun when the fitness room, hot tub and sauna room overlooks the water too. Looking forward to coming back soon

Had just spent 2 nights 3 days at Green Briar, wanted to see the island and something a little less uppity. Saw a couple of negative reviews but know some folks like to complain. It was perfect for us, great view of the water, long deck to enjoy, friendly, very clean and a great choice for those \of us looking for something other than the normal chain lodging.

Room Tip: Upper level as close to dock as you can get.

Immaculate place inside and out. Staff was more than willing to meet our needs. All rooms have a southern exposure and an uncorrupted view of the sunsets. The noise of a few crickets and the occasional boat were the only sounds outside our room. New flooring and rug, new bed and furniture. It has a new pier for guest use, which my wife and I used to go fishing off but it also has about 10 boat slips. They provide a cleaning table, charcoal grills and tables to eat at outside. Perfect place for a couple or family to vacation. Island is quiet and unpopulated by bars and clubs where noise and drunken stupidity emanates. Fine if you want that, but it's not on Chincoteague. When we return to Chincoteague, this is where we'll stay.

Room Tip: Best view will be at the end of the hotel. An elevator is in the middle of the building.
