My wife and I were visiting friends on the Island and needed a place to stay, another friend suggested the Waterside Inn. What a great choice, the room was clean and spacious and the view of the Sunset was spectacular. If you are ever considering a trip to Chincoteague Island you owe it to yourself to check out the Waterside...

The place is right by the water and has its own pier with picnic tables with benches. Each room has its own private balcony looking into the water. We got a room with two queen beds on the first floor and were pleasantly surprised. There were ample comfortable seating areas, separate sink with coffee makers and fridge, free in-room wifi...

Just a one night stop on our annual pilgrimage from NY to VA. What a lovely place. Every room has a view of the inlet; rooms are spacious with a nice loveseat (we always look for decent seating...hate to watch TV in bed!). Nice balcony - we were on the second floor near the end - great views. Little café...

We had a fun filled family weekend on Chincoteague Island. The hotel rooms were not very updated, but the friendly atmoshpere made up for it. The weather was in the 60's but didn't stop our grandchildren from swimming in the heated pool (70 degrees, I'd guess.) They loved crabbing from the pier. Two of our families shared a condo, which...

Everytime we were at front desk, there was someone voicing a complaint. Food was left in fridge,(previous guest). Room had a musty smell. Bed was uncomfortable. Free breakfast, skip it and pay for it elsewhere. We were on 2nd floor and wanted to sleep in, but had a herd of elephants in room above. Sunsets were nice. AJ's food was...

Nice room, nice location, great view. The room was clean and pleasant smelling. The ladies at the front desk were quite welcoming when we arrived and let us know what amenities were available for us throughout the hotel. The continental breakfast let a lot to be desired, but overall it was a nice stay.
