“Waterside Inn is the very best!”
Reviewed 27 October 2009

I've been coming to Waterside Inn since 1988 and wouldn't trade it. The views are the best. The rooms have been upgraded, the beds and pillows are great. The people at the desk and the owners are tops. The rooms are always clean. My daughter and I just got back a week ago. The weather was awful, which was unusual for October, but we still had fun. The lady at the desk was able to reassure my daughter who worried about flooding and leaving the island. I love to walk out on the dock. We had a great time shopping and sightseeing and eating and reading. We love Chincoteague and we especially love the Waterside.

Everything was great - the room was nice and clean, fridge and microwave in the room, balcony overlooking the water, nice tv with lots of channels. The Inn is perfectly situated on the island so it has great views but is easily in walking distance of great restaurants and bars. The staff was extremely friendly and courteous, offering restaurant recommendations, directions and island information. Should we come back to Chincoteague, this is definitely where we will stay.

Stayed here for 3 nights in October of 2009. Here is the Good and Not-So-Good:

Good:
1.) Location of inn is ideal on the island.
2.) Beds are comfortable.
3.) Two sinks in room.
4.) Beautiful views

Not-So-Good:
1.) Front-desk staff are not the "sharpest tools in the shed". Not sure if these were the owners or staff.

2.) Room really need updating. Furniture in room looked like it was taken off the set of "The Brady Bunch". Very outdated.

3.) Floors are too thin and creaky. We could hear each and every step the people above us made!!!

4.) Continental breakfast was not that good...and DO NOT expect orange juice, they serve some type of bottled or powdered orange breakfast drink that has the taste of chalky Tang or Sunny Delight.

5.) If anyone walks by your room or is out on their balcony smoking, you will inevitably have your room smell like cigarette smoke.

6.) If it is raining or wet outside, please take caution when entering your room, because the tiled floor in entrance and in bathroom is amazingly slippery. We had to catch our hands on the walls for balance several times.

7.) Beware of the 72-hour cancellation policy. Most real hotels have the standard 24-hour cancellation policy.

The good reviews are for good reason. We liked this place a lot. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The private pier and pool are bonuses. The owners clearly take pride in the hotel and grounds. Everything is clean and well maintained and the rose beds are beautiful. The location is great; it's slightly away from the shops and restaurants along the main road which makes it a quiet place to stay, but still provides an easy drive to Assateague. We'll definitely stay here again.

We stayed in the Sunset hill condos which are right across from the hotel. It is a old Victorian house that they converted into four condo units. It was very clean, well soundproofed and had a small kitchen. We liked it because we could interact with our parents more than we could in separate hotel rooms and it was cheaper than getting two separate hotel rooms. You get all the benefits of the hotel including a continental breakfast, heated pool and a pier. There was even a hotel worker making fresh waffles for us! We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again!

We arrived in a rainstorm, and thought of a warm, dry, comfortable room to rest after a long trip. Instead, shortyly after unpacking, we noticed that the ceiling was leaking. We placed a garbage pail under the leak, but the leak expanded to 3 different areas of the celing within our room . We called managment, and they said that they would look into the problem on the following day. Thye next day we changed rooms. However, because of a defective lock, we were unable to enter this latter room in the afternoon.. Managment did change the lock. However, in regard to the leaking ceiling, managment did not offer any apology; and we were denied any discount on the rate. In fact, management told us that there was not anything wrong with the roof; anhd that the rain was coming into the room because of the direction of the wind. I reponded that I would not be back; and would submit a negative review for the benefit of future vacationers.
