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.

Comfortable and clean rooms. The hotel staff is very helpful and nice. The property and views are lovely. The free hot breakfast is nicely done and you can eat it community style or take a tray to your room.

We remind a lot of customers of a bed and breakfast instead of a hotel because of the friendly, comfortable atmosphere. Thank you for sharing your experience with others. Hopefully you can return soon. More

Came for two nights and the room was very comfortable with a little balcony to enjoy a beautiful view. in the morning and at sunset.

It's a motel, but a nice one. The staff was VERY accommodating when NASA and Orbital slipped their Antares launch date. The room was clean. One bed was very soft, the other firm, so I had my choice (two queen beds room). Breakfast area was small and the decor a bit dated. Let's call it beach cozy. Yes, I will... More

A great online deal including a hot breakfast enticed us to book two nights. The room was ready as promised and we enjoyed an amazing sunset from our Diplomat room. As an older hotel, the owners have updated the furnishings, and even though burned out light bulbs were present above the sink, the room met our needs nicely. A basic... More

Great Southern hospitality, super helpful staff. Great location, close to everything, nice spacious rooms with microwave and mini fridge, which even some high end hotels we've stayed at don't provide. Breakfast had something for everyone.

We started out trip a day early because the Wayerside Inn popped up with a great price. We arrived late at night after a storm, but found the location nice and quiet. The room was satisfactory.

The location was ok but it definitely needs some serious upgrades. The lobby/breakfast area is very small and cramped. It's right on the bay side with boating access and swimming pool during the high season.

We try to stay on trend and are constantly making upgrades. It has been a very busy summer and rooms really take a beating. There are tables outside and we offer trays for guests who choose to enjoy their breakfast on their private balcony overlooking the bayfront. Hopefully if you choose to return you will notice the upgrades. More
