On the spur of a moment we decided to come and watch a rocket launch from The Wallops Island NASA facility. We were fortunate enough to contact the Waterside Inn and were able to reserve a room.

Perfect spot to watch Wallops Island launch. Room 110 is clean and plenty clean. Balcony looks over the marsh and bay, perfect for sunsets. Breakfast hot and ready at 7 a.m. No problems with check in and extending stay due to launch delay. Will neck next launch.
