Affordable rates, basic rooms, close to beach. BBQ and yard to play in, helpful staff. It is small, in the midst of renovations, and dog friendly. Lots of dogs, and smokers. But our room smelled fine.

We are frequent guests of the Sea Shell Motel. If you are looking for a great beach motel with fair prices and fantastic service, this is the place to stay. Chris, the manager and owner Debbie and her husband deliver outstanding service. They all go the extra mile to make sure that all of their guests feel at home and... More

We could not get reservation at the Sea Shell Motel, so the manager placed us in their sister property, Sea Spray Inn, which is about half a mile north of this motel. Sea Spray Inn doesn't have any Tripadvisor listing, so I'm writing this review here. Initially, it was quite difficult for anyone to pick up the phone, but when... More

SeaShellMgr, Owner at Sea Shell Motel, responded to this review

Thank you for your kind words. We use the apartments at the Sea Spray as a seasonal extension of the Sea Shell, so we didn't set up a separate property in Trip Advisor (that may change). The summer is short but very intense at the motel, with the phone ringing constantly, so I'm glad you finally got through. Thank you... More

We stayed for four nights. Very bright and clean. Adorable place. Loved the grassy backyard with the hot tub and grill, clothes line and canoe, paddle boat and kayak for fishing on the salt pond. We would definitely go here again. Keurig in the lobby was a really nice touch too. Loved that we were so close to the beach... More

Highly recommend this place. Very clean and well kept back yard. Loved the Jacuzzi. It's right on Winnipaug salt pond so the view from the back is beautiful. Price point is just right. Kudos to Kerri the housekeeper who helped us out. She noticed I was struggling a bit with carrying stuff. She stopped what she was doing and came... More

This is the best little secret in Rhode Island. Chris was wonderful. Kerri who saw me struggling get up the stairs, put her house cleaning supplies down, came over to help me because she saw I had a bad leg. The Sea Shell is Clean and the backyard is well maintained. We loved this place and will be back every... More

We stayed overnight at the Sea Shell the weekend of June 16th. It was clean and the staff were very friendly! This was a great deal for us. It was a great place for us as we just needed overnight accommodations. There were two double beds in our room along with a Fridge and Microwave. No coffee or tea, but... More

The Sea Shell Motel was way more than we expected! Excellent rooms rates. Very clean. No yucky motel blankets here - nice linens & memory foam beds. Property is right on water with a clean, hot waterside outdoor jacuzzi hot tub. Comfortable seating in the front and back. There is also a grill and boats for the guests to use.... More
