“Excellent for the price, a little too far of a walk into town”
Reviewed September 6, 2004

This is an excellent bed and breakfast on Bellevue Avenue, 2 blocks from Thames Street (the main drag). However, it was 2 LONG blocks - definitely too far to walk if you do not have comfortable shoes on.
The place is a big white summer house with large pillars in front. You walk in and thee are towels to take for the pool/beach, classical musc is playing and there were many brochures. We rang a buzzer and were quickly greeted by Dorothy the Innkeeper. She showed us to our room which was lovely. It had a nice 4 poster bed, tv, new AC, and a tremendous bathroom. I felt like I was staying in my own house. It was very comfortable. I was also given an iron and hairdryer at my request. The hotel has a pool which was heated. They also serve breakfast in the drawing room from 8-10 am. It consisted of a nice fruit salad, delicious coffee and 4 kinds of cereal. They had a big long table and other smaller tables and a big couch. It was nice.

All in all I was very happy with Wayside.

Pros: Nice room, large bathroom, plenty of cozy towels, very friendly staff, accommodating housekeeping and nice decor. Also plenty of free parking. OH, and they dont charge tax on the rate. It is a lump sum fee and they only take cash or check.

Cons: A little too far of a walk from the main street and they dont take credit cards.

All in all I would recommend this place. It is a little too far of a walk if you dont have comfy shoes but other than that, for Labor day weekend, it was a great selection.
