This motel was the most conveniently located for our family get together. We were there off-season so the rates were reasonable. It is a small, pet-friendly motel which is open year-round. It is about two blocks from the beach and backs onto the Winnepaug pond. The back yard has picnic tables, grill and kayaks etc you can use. Staff is... More

Thanks for taking the time to review our motel, and I'm glad that you had a nice stay. I tell people that September is quite possibly the best month to stay in Misquamicut because the crowds are gone, the weather is still great, and the prices are lower! I am troubled to hear that your room was not cleaned every... More

There are a lot of very good things to say about this motel: the rates are affordable for the area, the staff is super friendly and helpful, it is very clean and close to the beach. The backyard abutting the bay is beautiful, with picnic tables, a sand box and three lounges. You can also use a sunfish, kayak and... More

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.

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
