It's a motel, but a nice one. The staff was VERY accommodating when NASA and Orbital slipped their Antares launch date. The room was clean. One bed was very soft, the other firm, so I had my choice (two queen beds room). Breakfast area was small and the decor a bit dated. Let's call it beach cozy. Yes, I will...

Thank you for the review. Breakfast area is going to be updated in the near future We are just waiting for business to slow down to take the room apart. Next time you come it should have a whole new look. We do have a variety of bedding options and can usually satisfy everyone 's taste. Thank you again for...

A great online deal including a hot breakfast enticed us to book two nights. The room was ready as promised and we enjoyed an amazing sunset from our Diplomat room. As an older hotel, the owners have updated the furnishings, and even though burned out light bulbs were present above the sink, the room met our needs nicely. A basic...

Thank you for taking the time to write the review. Our breakfast always includes granola with raisins, brown sugar, and other sweeteners. There is always fresh ice water available and even a few gluten free items on request. If there is something you cant find please ask we probably have it available. We ask our guests to let us know...

Great Southern hospitality, super helpful staff. Great location, close to everything, nice spacious rooms with microwave and mini fridge, which even some high end hotels we've stayed at don't provide. Breakfast had something for everyone. We only stayed for a few days on the off season but the positive experience has us wanting to come back for a longer stay...

Thank you for the terrific review. My husband has approximately 370 rose bushes that our guests and other visitors enjoy. He will share his " Rose recipe" with our guests if they ask in the hotel office. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and will look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

We started out trip a day early because the Wayerside Inn popped up with a great price. We arrived late at night after a storm, but found the location nice and quiet. The room was satisfactory. The view in the morning was a blessing and a great start to our getaway. Breakfast was good and the staff were very friendly...

The location was ok but it definitely needs some serious upgrades. The lobby/breakfast area is very small and cramped. It's right on the bay side with boating access and swimming pool during the high season.

We try to stay on trend and are constantly making upgrades. It has been a very busy summer and rooms really take a beating. There are tables outside and we offer trays for guests who choose to enjoy their breakfast on their private balcony overlooking the bayfront. Hopefully if you choose to return you will notice the upgrades.

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.
