“We will be back!!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Very clean and well maintained. Lots of beautiful rose bushes. Nice view of the sunset from their private pier where you can actually fish off without a license. Restaurants are close by. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony.

We are very glad that you enjoyed your recent stay with us. All of the rooms have a waterfront balcony but the higher up you go the better the view. We do have an elevator so don't be afraid that you will have to climb steps. Sunsets are so beautiful this time of year and all of the restaurants are open for the season. I hope that you can return soon.

My husband and I needed to take a short trip to the Chincoteague/Assateague Island area to scope it out for a possible business undertaking. In a Google search I found the Waterside Inn. It had good ratings, so we booked a one-night stay directly with the motel. From start to finish it was a totally positive experience. We were provided with an excellent room rate. Check-in was seamless. Our third floor room was clean, quiet, and comfortable, with a peaceful and lovely view. This is a family-owned motel and their pride in their business is quite evident. There were many small extra touches which added to our experience. The staff were all friendly and helpful, but not overwhelming. A hot breakfast was included with the room rental, and it was also quite satisfactory. One of the most unique assets of this motel is the owner's collection of over 300 rose bushes around the property; all blooming profusely and lovingly tended. Gardeners are noted for their love of sharing their knowledge with each other, so when I inquired at the desk about the roses, the desk clerk whipped out two information sheets, written by the owner, detailing his methods for rose cultivation and deer deterrence. We totally enjoyed our brief stay here and will definitely stay here again, if the need arises in the future.

Room Tip: Don't be deterred from booking an upper floor room. There is an elevator, so no need to drag ev...

I haven't been to Chincoteague in 15 years and I had a great time staying here. The hotel is nicely located, only about a 10 minute walk at most to the main street. The view is really nice and worth paying a little extra for. Staff and nice and helpful. Really recommend it!

We stayed at the Waterside Inn over Memorial Day to celebrate my husbands birthday. We upgraded to an end room and were so happy we did. The temperature was perfect for sitting on the porch and watching the sunset.
The staff were probably the friendliest I've ever met in a hotel. They made you feel like home, including sitting down for breakfast (yummy) in a home like setting.
The room was spotless, the bed comfy.
I would definitely go back!

Room Tip: The end rooms have the best view- a corner suite- large and sunny. However, all the rooms have a vi...

My daughter and I spent Memorial Day Weekend in Chincoteague. The Waterside Inn was a perfect place to stay!! Every room has a water view. The pool was heated which my daughter enjoyed and the fishing pier was a nice spot to take sunset pictures. Breakfast was good, and they made the waffles for you. Hotel management was extremely helpful and friendly.
