Such a breath of fresh air to spend a few days at the Waterway. Dave and Kay are the best hosts and provide a clean, comfortable room to lay your head after a long day on the beach, fishing or boating. Or just sit in a rocker and visit with all the folks who return every year to stay there!

Good location for food and fun. Room was very clean and property was well kept. Boat docks and kayak rental next door. We happened to be there during the last cold snap so could not sit out and enjoy the fantastic view.

We picked Waterway Inn based on great reviews here on TripAdvisor and they are spot on! The hotel owners take care to provide clean and comfortable rooms. We hoped to use the the kayak rentals next door but a storm rolled in. Instead, the family took advantage of the boat slips to get in some fishing. No big catches, but...

This is a great place to stay right on the water. Our room was very clean and although it was small, we only needed a place to sleep and take showers. If you need a place to dock your boat, they have several and the public ramp is right next door.

• The Waterway Inn was the Home Base during our 3 Day "Father's Day ICW Boat Adventure" with my two Adult Sons. The Trip was Fantastic, and we had a Great Time, which was pleasantly enhanced by the Unique "Waterway Inn" which was Outstanding...a Definite A+ Pure and Simple!

We can not say enough about this wonderful place. Kay and Dave made our stay so enjoyable. It started with a nice card welcoming us and telling us Happy Anniversary and happy birthday and there is cake for you in the refrigerator. Then Dave brought us a cold watermelon. You don't get this at chains! We were made to feel...

This was our first stay at the Waterway Inn and it won't be our last! Our room was very clean with comfortable beds. Dave and Kay were exceptionally friendly and welcoming - just like old friends opening their home to out-of-town guests. We can't wait for our next visit!

The Waterway Inn is family owned/operated, clean as a pin and just a delight if you are looking for a great value. The beds are comfortable with comfy blankets and quilts. You can see the care that goes into running the Inn. Rocking chairs on the lawn, easy access if you have a boat and slips for rent. Dave and...

Waterway Inn is a small privately run and owned motel. The rooms are clean and the beds comfortable. The host, Dave, was very laid back. No breakfast is available but coffee pots can be had from the office and there is a fridge and microwave to keep food and heat your own. Two small issues; the wall AC/heater did an...
