I had researched this area and this motel before deciding to make a reservation. I liked that it was very small and right on the ocean, but was a bit uncomfortable with the theme rooms. I chose the Whaling Room which does not have a balcony, but makes up for that by having a fabulous view up the beach, instead of straight out to sea. The room was quaint, comfy, had some nice details like binoculars. The owner was more than pleasant and accommodating. I was only able to stay one night, but I could see cozying up next the fire for some weeks to come. I had a smile on my face the entire time! Now this place is certainly not new, nor fancy, but it's homey in a way not often found in older motels. Convenient to Newport. It's consistently booked, so I'm not the only one who thinks Moolack Shores is special - don't miss it unless you prefer big high-end chain hotels.
