"Off season splendid….."
Having arrived late for one overnight on a trip from Florida it was delightful to arrive at such a peaceful spot. Chincoteague is sleepy this time of year and it was refreshingly silent and dark after a few nights sleeping in chain hotels at the interstate interchanges where one hears traffic and light glare all night. The hot tub eased the hours of […] driving and the staff was friendly and welcoming. I booked a water view room and it was delightful to lookout over the bay upon waking.

"quality service & clean rooms"
The staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was fresh and had a wide variety of choices. All of the rooms had a porch with a view of the water.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quaint and Immaculate"
This is probably one of the cleanest rooms that we have ever stayed in. The staff is wonderful and breakfast was very good and included with the stay. Breakfast is tailored on the chain hotel breakfasts, but they make the waffles for you and they use real eggs instead of the powered salty eggs. We took a water view room and it was well worth it. Note […] that the furniture is older, but in excellent condition. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for viewing rocket launches from Wallops"
The hotel was perfect. I asked at the desk about where was the best place to view the rocket launches from Wallops. The answer was from the balcony of our room. It was. The hotel is family owned, which really gave it a real down-home touch. The breakfast, included in the price of the room, was far better than I had expected. I'll definitely come ag […] ain.

My stay at the Waterside in on Chincoteague Island was perfect. I loved the staff whom conveyed a certain realism and warm hospitality that was well worth the fee by itself. I live nearby, however, I look forward to returning and experiencing the quality of a lifetime. I am grateful! Wesley HuyettGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Halloween Night in Old Town Chincoteague"
We found the Waterside Inn to be very clean and comfortable, and superbly located for our visit. It was within walking distance to both the paddock where the ponies stay after their swim (there were still a few there that we got to see) and to Old Town Chincoteague. We arrived late but with excellent directions from the desk clerk we were able to see […] the ponies while it was still light. Then we walked over to Old Town and, it being Halloween, many stores were still open so the local children could trick-or-treat. We enjoyed a pleasant evening and then spent the next day on Assateague Island, where we saw more ponies in the wild. An in-room fridge and microwave, and a complementary hot breakfast next morning, were very helpful to us. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

First time staying. Accommodations very comfy. Staff were extremely nice and accommodating. View was nice . Will definitely stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Park was closed, otherwise great stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is a bit outdated but very clean and spacious. Views are spectacular at this waterfront hotel. Nice deck to sit out on watching sunset over the water. Had to check out before breakfast was served so not sure how it was. No restaurants within walking distance for dinner.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"View of sound"
The entire stay was a pleasure. It is not a new facility but the Inn & grounds are clean, the roses were in bloom & well tended. The staff was very friendly & willing to help. Suggested 2 wonderful seafood restaurants. Was easy to access all I wanted to do. Only 15 minutes at most from Assateague Is. Staff went the extra mile when I had a question they […] did not know answer but found it for me. The breakfast choices were more than I had imagined. Would definitely stay again.

"Beautiful spot to watch Antares rocket launch"
Only problem was two smokers on balcony next to oursGenuine Expedia guest review
You won't find more friendly staff that show pride in where they work. Or a better location, views and amenities for your money. Only "problem" rooms / balcony felt a little small.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Really Nice Hotel"
The staff was great. The room was immaculate, it even smelled good. Everything was in good working order (Lights, TV, Frig, Microwave, ice machine, etc.). The view from the pier for sunset was amazing. Top it off with a quiet soak in the evening in the Jacuzzi with a view off the dock, and you have a perfect day. Even the complimentary breakfast was […] more than we expected. Eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, waffles, fruit, assorted breads and pastries, juice and coffee. Stay here, you won't regret it...

"Labor day w family"
Went to spend Labor Day weekend in Chincoteague, first time ever in VA. Family consists of two adults and 3 kids (14, 12 and 9). Loved the breakfast (included) with fresh waffles. The women at front desk were extremely nice and helpful. Pool is open until 1 am, kids loved that! We (adults) enjoyed the jacuzzi! Weaknesses are: pool is facing the parking […] lot (especially the lounge chairs) instead of the ocean...but you can have a picnic (with bbq grill) close to the pool facing the water...Beds were not very comfortable, very hard mattresses...you need to take your car to go to the beach (state park= $15/ week).

"Excellent Staff, Good Hotel"
The Waterside is a good hotel with really great staff. Rooms are spacious and accommodations are average. The staff really sets this place apart. They were friendly, helpful and a delight. We'll be back to Chincoteague and will stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice Relaxing Vacation"
Stayed with wife and daughter, and had a very relaxing stay at the hotel. Donna and others were super helpful. Breakfast was sumptuous. Locale was calm peaceful and close to water which we chose to not go to. We headed out to the beach instead at Assateague which is only 3 miles away. We're surely coming back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for view of the bay"
We enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The view from our balcony was wonderful and the dock was a special treat for sunsets and for fishing. We also very much enjoyed watching the ducks on parade several times a day. Staff were very helpful and the room was clean. It was nice to have a real coffee mug in the room and the two sinks. Also, we could see the […] lights of the NASA launch site from our room at night. We noticed the strong chemical smell when we first arrived, as have others. Luckily, it was cool enough to open the screen patio door and that helped to air it out. It smelled like a strong air freshener. This is a comfortable hotel, not four star but with some perks that would likely bring us back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
They had 45 rooms and only 2 breakfast tables, horrible getting through the breakfast line. They claim to have all rooms with a view of the bay, my room was looking into a fence and bushes. I was charged 180.00 a night which was more than what they charge for the 3rd floor room. When I got there they charged me for the 80.00 more for my kids. It was […] just a lot of money for a room that smelled musty and no view. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The waterside offered all we needed for our 3 days there. A heated pool, a dock to fish and crab there or just sit and relax overlooking the Bay. A mornign breakfast area with freindly staff and helpful staff The room was clean and the ac worked nicely, or fresh air flowed in from the balcony in the evening. You can walk to town for shopping and dining. […] We would stay here again next time as well, Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"close to the beach"
Strong with chemical smells. The bed was lumpy and hard. We had to use the other bed, not much better. For the price it was terrible. The accommodations for breakfast was awful. People were sitting on top of each other. The sitting was for about 20 people jammed up in this little officeGenuine Expedia guest review
We loved it and have already refered it to our friends. It was quite comfy and everyone was really nice and helpful. Breakfast was very good as well. Next time we go to chincoteague, we'll go to this hotel again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
staff was great. breakfast was good, loved the pier. going to bring my boat next stayGenuine Expedia guest review
"Pretty, no frills"
We had a pleasant experience here. The hotel is right on the water on the main street of the little town. Our room had a balcony with a great view and the hotel has a private pier to watch an exquisite sunset with a glass of wine. The only parts that could be updated are the finishes of the room and the decor. We felt like We were back in the 80's at […] grandma's house and the carpet, shower curtains and sheets were a little old. Free mediocre breakfast, friendly staff. Wish we would have had time to try out the enclosed jacuzzi! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Disappointment : ("
The motel was considerably over priced for the level of comfort and quality portrayed on the website compared to what we actually experienced. The bedding was ill fitting and made for a restless nights sleep. The air conditioning unit produced a clammy air quality that made it difficult to spend any length of time in the room. I would not recommend […] is motel to anyone. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Hotel itself is about average, but the view, location and service are its best features. Would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Great place. Exceptionally clean, and the staff was very welcoming and helpful. This will definitely be the place we stay when we go back next year.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The Dock next to the Inn was Amazing"
My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night after being in Ocean City for the day. After a long day of Surfing, Eating, Walking, Beach Volleyball, and Swimming we drove 50 minutes to the Waterside Inn on Chincoteague Island and we were welcomed to a nice clean room with a cool balcony. The service at the front desk was great; we were greeted warmly […] by the front desk and they gave us some great restaurant recommendations. The room was nice an big and came with a fridge, microwave, a cool rocking chair, an outside patio with two chairs and a seat, and the bathroom had two sinks, one inside the bathroom and one outside (which is convenient as two people can get ready at the same time). The breakfast the next morning was continental and everything tasted so fresh, from the fresh waffles to the fresh and juicy fruit salad, to the eggs and English muffins. Donna, the owner, was awesome! She was so kind and friendly and she really made the Waterside Inn feel more like a home than a hotel. I would definitely recommend the Waterside Inn and will be staying there again next time I'm on Chincoteague! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice hotel on bay"
Check in was easy. Room was comfortable. Pier was wonderful for watching sunset. Room cost is for 2 people. Each additional cost $10 more. I felt that was a little high. The breakfast was good, but not many options. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone.Genuine Expedia guest review
A wonderful and charming hotel with a very pleasant staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, dock & pool, but our room smelled"
We loved many things about this hotel (actually a motel, as your door leads directly to the outside). There are cute little balconies outside each room, and ducks walk around under them, which was very amusing. The dock that leads into the bay gives an amazing view, and the pool is right next to the bay, so you also have a great view from there. There […] were a number of restaurants in walking distance, and it was a cute little area. The only problem was the very chemically smell of our room, which we noticed the second we opened the door. It was compounded by the fact that the AC wasn't on, and it was 95 degrees outside. It smelled like some very harsh chemicals, perhaps insect repellant, but it was extreme and overpowering. We turned the air on & left for dinner, hoping the AC would help with the smell, but when we returned it was just as bad. We would have asked for another room, but they'd posted a sign that they were full for the night. We only stayed that night, so it wasn't a big deal, but had we planned to stay for a few nights, we probably would have needed to get another room or change hotels. If they can fix the smell in that room, though, they place was great! Not worth the price we paid ($200 a night), but that was probably because the annual pony swim was coming up in a few days. We spoke to another guest that night and mentioned the smell, and she said her room smelled fine, so maybe it was just they gave us. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Balcony Views"
The balcony sunset views were breathtaking, and our room was comfortable and clean with a microwave and refrigerator. The staff were friendly and helpful in recommending restaurants and activities. Just a short walk to quaint little shops and fine restaurants. The complimentary breakfast was nice. Would definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"In an excellent location"
This hotel is located in the heart of Chincoteague's Main Street shops and restaurants. It's far away from the crowds that are near the bridge to Assateague, but it's an easy drive from the hotel to Assateague. Nice staff and comfortable rooms that look out over the channel to Eastern Shore.Genuine Expedia guest review
Only there for one night following a wedding. Allowed us to check in a bit early to dress free of charge which was very considersate. The sausage gravy in the morning was excellent! Just like Momma used to make,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good location on bay with dock, outdoor pool, indoor adult jacuzzi. Great sunsets. Short drive to nice beach at National Park. Island is quiet and quaint. No boardwalk. Lots of campers at 2 nearby private campgrounds.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It's on the main street which is called Main St :)"
Overall it was a good place to stay and met my needs. Only problem is that our room had a funny smell to it every time I entered. Free breakfast which included biscuit, sausage and gravy one day and sausage egg mcmuffin the other day! It gets a little cramped in the breakfast area but you can just eat in your room. Everything else was just dandy :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent place to just get away. Close to attractions, Rooms very clean.Easy check in/out. Wonderful breakfast in the morning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for a week in May."
I read in one review, where you could hear the people upstairs walking. This was very loud, and annoying when trying to sleep.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Decent independently owned hotel."
We thought this hotel was fine for a night or two. It had everything we were looking for in location, amenities, and price. Very good breakfast. The only negative was that the room had a quite noticeable odor that, while wasn't horrible, was very curious and quite strong. But would actually book there again if the occasion arose.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I adore the town and the people. We try to stay in diff hotels to get a feel of each one. The staff was friendly and helpful. I only wish the bed was a little bit softer. Above all the room was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hotel close to the beach"
The hotel was nicely maintained. It had a heated pool which we did not use and a fairly good size dock area that we walked out on. The room was from one side of the building to the other so all rooms had a water view. There was an elevator that worked very smoothly to all 3 floors. A breakfast was included and it was very good. All of the staff was […] very friendly and helped us with many local questions. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great Views from the Balcony. We would stay there again. The Hotel is in a good location (but the island is small enough I can not imagine a bad location). The rooms are OK sized, ok clean, etc... It is by no means the nicest room, or the nicest furniture, or the newest fixtures (blue toilet and green shower), but they work and are what we expected […] on a small island hotel. The Staff was nice and helpful. Great Views from the Balcony. (I said it again, because it was the best feature. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
