I spent one night at Surfside in July 2016. We were on our bikes and therefore didn't have a choice since it was getting dark and rain was coming. The motel itself is ok. Small rooms that haven't been renovated in decades but clean. The surprise was really the price: 185$ for a room that was worth 60$. No breakfast.... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I would like to be able to apologize for your stay due to your comments but I'm sorry I can't. If you had checked out other motels directly close by you would see that we are in line price wise with all the others. Yes, we maybe slightly higher but... More

My husband and I finally made it to our favorite place! Always a pleasurable stay. Debbie & Chris are just wonderful, warm, friendly people. And Melony who is the housekeeper is just as nice and personable. Anything you need or want, it's not a problem. Clean, Cozy & Quiet. Give 'em a call. You won't be sorry.

The Surfside offered a convenient location for a trip to Rhode Island my wife and I needed to make recently. The room was clean with nice amenities, and Debbie, manager, was helpful and welcoming. It was perfect for us.

Charlestown, RI is a gem. Good restaurants a short drive away and clean ocean waves on great beaches close by CT. Our first choice for a place to stay for a weekend getaway in Charlestown is The Surfside Motel. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable, an outdoor shower, and a very accommodating and friendly staff. We've stayed at other... More

On two separate occasions we recently stayed at the Surfside. Both times were spur of the moment getaways. We seem to enjoy those unplanned trips the most, We are very satisfied with the Surfside. It's very clean and maintained both in and outside. It's close to the magnificent Charletown beach and some wonderful restaurants. Our very favorite is just 10... More

We were pleasantly surprised with the Surfside Motel. The pictures did not do it justice. Though the room was small, it was very tastefully decorated and very clean. The proprietor could not have been more welcoming and she went out of her way to point out local attractions and places to eat that more than met our expectations. We liked... More

The room we had was spotless---we stayed her last year and we were so happy about our stay that we are coming back this year for a 2 night stay. Debbie and the staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for us. I reccomend this motel to anyone who wants a quiet and quaint motel.
