We only stayed a long weekend but we would definitely come back and stay longer. Donna at the front desk was so helpful, the rooms were clean, the bed comfortable and the breakfast was wonderful. Highly recommend!!

The waterside Inn was a great resting stop on a 8 hr trip to the outer banks. It was the perfect place to rest. Very clean and beautiful. Breakfast was a little crowded, so we headed to the outdoor benches which was nice. Our 3 yr old daughter was able to catch two crabs in the nets on the pier...

The room was clean and comfortable! The staff was friendly and accommodating. The have a heated pool, adults only hot tub, and a fishing/crabbing pier. I also had a great water view. I would give it 5 stars, however I feel all hotels are to expensive. With that said, the off season price was somewhat reasonable. I like this place....

We traveled to Chincoteague Island to see the ponies on Assateague Island and enjoy the local seafood. We searched the internet for a place to stay and discovered the Waterside Inn. The location was great and our room very comfortable with a nice water view. We recommend the Waterside Inn based on it's walkable location, comfortable rooms and good prices.

Charming town, charming inn, charming people! Lady at the front desk made great dinner recommendation as well as telling us about other things to do on the island. Good sized, clean room and a hot breakfast (I really liked my biscuit with sausage gravy). I would definitely stay here again. I like the idea of supporting the local businesses versus...

Thank you so much for the great review. We are still family owned and operated and offer personal customer service. My husband is the rosarian and spends many hours with his 370 bushes so that our customers and others can enjoy. If you see him ask his advice he is a wealth of information on roses.

This by far was my most favorite place to stay on this trip! The room was immaculate and the décor was wonderful. We were on the third floor ( they have an elevator) and overlooked the water with a private balcony. It was so beautiful sitting out there and watching the sun go down. They serve breakfast as well.

I absolutely LOVED the location! It wasnt in the midst of everything but at the same time it was within walking distance to a lot of stores and restaurants. I loved the friendly and family friendly atmosphere. The breakfast that was included with the rooms was great and I loved being right by the ocean!

Older facility in great location wth friendly staff and clean rooms. Breakfast experience was "cozy" but food was good. Just an easy place. The pier was nice and the whole experience was peaceful. Eat at Don's and the Crab Shack.
