    Nice place to stay. Love the view.
    This is a motel in a lovely location, quiet and with good pool and water frontage. Breakfast is served, good selection of food including hot dishes but served on paper plates and plastic cutlery. Car is needed to get to Assateague, or maybe you can rent a bicycle? I would stay here again.

    Only complaint was the shower head, water pressure was low, and water temperature was either freezing or scalding. But, in all fairness, that has been my experience, no matter where we go.

    Business and Pleasure
    This trip to Chincoteague was my first trip since COVID struck last year. I was a little hesitant to book a trip knowing many restrictions were still in place. I am happy to say I now have no regrets. This trip was the first trip where I had planned on spending part of it working as my job is now full time remote. It was a good test to see if i could truly work from anywhere. Obviously, WiFi was a huge priority for me and I had no issues with the Waterside WiFi connection. It was stable and it never dropped a single time. I will say, the only gripe i had is there was no desk. I ended up working from the small dining table which as long as you have just a laptop, there was enough room. If you require a lot of space to spread out your work, this may not be the place for you. Aside from the business aspect, I did dedicate a few days to actual relaxation and most of it was spent on the balcony overlooking the bay. It was a beautiful view. The microwave and mini fridge were also convenient. Not to mention the private pier. The staff were very welcoming and very friendly. Due to COVID, the jacuzzi was not open which was disappointing, but the grab and go hot breakfast was very nice. Overall, I was very pleased with my stay here. Waterside Inn while offering many amenities, still resonates that basic and simple charm which perfectly represents what Chincoteague Island is. I for sure will be booking another stay in the future here again.

    Good 6.0
    I can say I upgraded to a room with water view. It had a tiny balcony where I was at least hoping to smoke a nice cigar, but a sign in the room said no smoking of any kind in the room or anywhere on the property or you will face a possible 250.00 fine. Yet young folks were coming down to my side of the hotel to smoke weed. There was mold in the bathroom tile... Yeah, they tried to scrub it out, but that left a slimy coating on it. Not good for bare feet. Overall, this place is maintained, just in a slip shod overall cheapest way. The staff were very friendly. The breakfast was the same every day and what you would expect for a budget place... Not great but not miserable.

    Fair 4.0
    We did a late check in which was great since we couldn't make it before 12am. They made our check in easy that night. The issues started the next morning. They called and woke me up to tell ma again that I needed to come in to the office for the rest of my check in. Annoyed that I was woken up I went down and finished the check in. We left the room went and got something to eat and do a few things around the island. When we came back to the room we laid down and were talking and spending our anniversy together when again the phone rings apperently someone was smoking on the deck

    Was pretty nice!
    I went with my wife to get out of the Covid-19 thing. Most of the business around were closed so we stayed most of the time in the room. The jacuzzi was unavailable because of Covid-19 😑 breakfast was grab and go, there was a little bit of dust in the room, I tried to make a late check out because of a huge storm and they didn't allow it 😔 great view, nice vibe, comfort beds, old showers. I will try to come back probably after this Covid-19 passes.

    It is a nice place to stay. Nothing spectacular but the people who work there are wonderful. We have stayed here before and returned so that should tell you something, Great views of the water from the room. Close to "downtown". :)
