The best way I can describe the waterside inn is as a high-end motel. If you're looking for a clean room with gorgeous water views and a private balcony, then you'll be thrilled. However, if you come here expecting a resort then you'll be disappointed by the absence of overnight staff, the poor sound insulation, the meager continental breakfast, etc. I really think the manicured roses around the parking lot kind of sum up the waterside's philosophy - take an ordinary motel and do everything you can to elevate it.
We were able to see ducks and crabs doing battle around the pier and swim in the pool until late at night - we had a wonderful 1st anniversary stay. Note that we stayed in a diplomat suite in early June, just before the heavy tourist season picks up.
