Do not stay at this motel

A travel blog entry by monsieurbarry

We arrived in a rainstorm, and were looking for a warm, dry & comfortable room. However, after unpacking, I noticed that rain was leaking into our room . I placed a garbage can under the leak, but the leak soon expanded to three different locations in the ceiling. The next day, we changed to a different room. However, because of a defective …

Wild Ponies

A travel blog entry by whereisthebus


... Trail, a 1.6 mile walking loop trail. On our way to the trail, we saw 3 ponies grazing in a marshy field along the roadway. Hiking the Woodland Trail to the pony lookout, our expectations were high. As it turned out, the ponies along the road were closer than the ponies at the lookout. We saw them through binoculars, but they were in the shade of trees, as it was quite warm. Bummer.


Assateague Island National Seashore/Reagan,The end

... loop. We had a thunderstorm around ten last night for about an hour so some of the tenters left this morning. Tenters need extra long stakes to stay here. It’s a great place to camp and it cost us $10 a night with a pass. Reservations can be made online on the recreation.gov website. Beautiful place and the wild horses just add to the whole atmosphere. The Maryland- Assateague State Park is just to the north of this park so don’t confuse the ...

We were surprised to see signs for NASA when we turned to go over to chincoteague. Had no clue they were out here at the wallop air base. After checking out cute Main Street chincoteague we headed over to the beach at toms cove on assateague island. Sadly didn't see ...

ENTRY 6: My last week in Washington DC

A travel blog entry by alexedube


... because of my host family who are so generous and interesting people. It was totally over what I expected and I will leave Washington D.C. with a lot of satisfactions, souvenirs, smiles, anecdotes, experiences, new friends and also, more grown up. I have this weird feeling that I can’t wait to be home, but in the other hand, I want to stay here and continue my journey. But I ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Waterside Inn Chincoteague Island

    Wonderful stay at the Waterside Motor Inn


    We just returned from a gorgeous fall weekend at the Waterside Motor Inn. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. They provided us with all the information we needed for our stay. Tips on stores, restaurants etc...The room was very clean, and beautifully decorated. Nice size bathroom, microwave, fridge, and coffee in the room. The view this hotel provides is amazing. You have the best view of the sunset. You can enjoy it from your deck or on the extensive dock. Boat slips are available and there is heated pool and hot tub.

    A diamond in the Rough (By AJ)


    This place Receives Two thumbs Up. The Room was immaculate. We got a room on the second floor overlooking the bay. Mosquitos were the only issue, but a little Deet would repel them quick. The breakfast was splendid with english muffins, bagels, toast, OJ , cereal and danish.

    The front desk was really helpful. Since it was our first time in the area, they recommended the places to visit and we just did so. It was perfect. The pier of the Inn is a fantastic place to just sit and relax. Each floor had vending machines. The first and thrid floor has the icemakers while the second floor has the washer/dryer. The jacuzzi was perfect to just cozy up to a dear one.

    All in all, a wonderful vacation thanks to were we stayed at.

    Clean, comfortable & lovely setting


    Having looked at the hotel's website (not very good) I was expecting something a little dated but clean. I wasn't expecting a 3 story 40+ room well kept place with great views of the water. This place is immaculate & shows that there are great alternatives to sterile, predictable chain motels.

    First time, won't be the last


    This was our first stay to the Waterside Motor Inn but not our first stay in the Island. We come back every year for the last 11 years. We usually stay at different places to find one that is good. This was a great place to say. The room was a nice size. We loved to go Crabbing off of the Pier and went swimming every day in the pool which was very well kept. They do serve Donuts and other breakfast munchies there but we preferred to eat out. The room was very well maintained and housekeeping came in every day and added their special touch. I do recommend if you are staying here to get the 2nd or 3rd floor though because the balcony view from the bottom floor is blocked by the trees and brush it we couldn't see the water very well. The staff was wonderful and very friendly. Another tip to remember tho is that check-in isn't until 3pm and they stick with this time. We arrived on the island at 11am and thought we would see if we could check in early as some hotels/motels will let you and they advised us that we could come back at 2:30pm and check-in, this was a downer but not that big of a dea, we just toured the island for a while. The hotel has rose bushes all around it which makes it very charming and beautiful!

    Our favorite place to stay on the island!


    The Waterside Inn continues to be an excellent "boutique" hotel on the Chincoteague Bay side of the island. Wonderful people, excellent location. Rooms are very comfortable and roomy, nice little deck, and a great pool and pier. They also offer units in a Victorian house across the Main Street. We have stayed here many times and highly recommend the Waterside. Chain hotels have built up but the Waterside and other smaller, locally-owned hotels provide a home town feel. The property is very well maintained and the pool is always spotless. The owners take pride in their property.

    Stay at the Waterside!


    The Waterside is "our" place. We have been staying there every year since it first opened! It is a family tradition and we wouldn't think of going anywhere else. It is the cleanest, friendliest, best kept home away from home I have ever seen. The owners truly offer a labor of love to their patrons. Pride and excellence show everywhere. The big chains cannot compete with this place! It is in a class by itself!

    Loved the pier


    This is a nice, clean, family friendly hotel. Every room has a private balcony where you can sit and relax and watch the water. We really enjoyed the fishing/ crabbing pier. The kids caught about a 1/2 bushel of crabs in just a few hours. The pool is kind of small but it is clean and heated. The hotel offers a free continental breakfast that features donuts, bagels, muffins, oatmeal, cereal, and frozen waffles. This is especially nice for the early morning fisherman. The only downfall we encountered was that we had to wait everyday for clean towels. We had two adults and three children in our room, and we would only recieve four towels. I also could not find a extra blanket, and the air conditioners were extremely cold. If you want a nice relaxing vacation, in a good clean hotel, this is the place to stay. It has many extra amenities not found in a small hotel.

    Wonderful hotel, great staff,


    I was pleasantly surprised at this Hampton Inn. We stayed at this hotel at their busiest time of year - pony penning in July. What a great value! Rooms extremely clean, very friendly staff, good breakfast, and well stocked little sundry shop.

    Take a trip back to the 50's at this wonderful hotel.

    We love the Waterside Motor Inn


    I fell in love with the island my first trip (1986) and have come almost every year since then and have stayed at the Waterside Motor Inn almost every year. I wouldn't stay anywhere else. My daughter and I just returned home yesterday. You can have your big chains, but I wouldn't trade the Waterside for any other place. The view is tops, the room is comfortable and well-cared for. The spa is great. I love to walk out the dock. The folks at the desk and the owners are wonderful. The Waterside is my home away from home. It's the greatest!
