The room was outstanding and the service was phenomenal. It's the cleanest room I've ever stayed in. Ms Loretta was so friendly and helpful with the Hotel amenities, as well as directions to restaurants, beaches, anything you needed, she was ready and willing to assist with a smile. I feel Loretta is a valuable asset to the Hotel, it wouldn't... More

We are from Minnesota, and loved the Surfside Motel! Loretta is a delightful person who takes pride in her job and runs a tight ship. The rooms are the cleanest I've ever seen anywhere, with a charming sea like atmosphere. But what really made it special is the extra mile Loretta went for all her guests. Knowing we had never...

Just got home from Charlestown, RI, and my stay at the Surfside Motel with my sister and a friend and wish we were still there. Sufside Motel was neat and clean and we even cooked out on the grill. A great big thank you to Loretta for taking care of us three "old" ladies just out having fun. Thanks again.... More

The room was very clean and pretty. The service was excellent and we felt very welcome. Excelent location, close to many beaches, cafés, restaurants and a wonderful bakery called "The Bakery", perfect for breakfast! We'll be back ! Caroline, Daniel and the kids

We found the Surfside Motel online, and then a follow up advertisement in Yankee Magazine. Surfside offers a great location, impeccably clean rooms, friendly staff, and a cozy atmosphere. We had a basic 2 double bed room, but it included a small refrigerator and microwave, perfect for restaurant leftovers or sandwich stuff for the beach. Also included is public use... More

Plain, neat, and the kind of place we might have stayed on family vacations when we were kids . . . except there was excellent wireless, microwave and fridge, and flat screen tv that made it up to date. Appreciative of a friendly staff who even accommodated our pooches... Next door there's some building construction (which made for an early... More

The surfside is CLEAN, cozy, comfy and the location was very convienient. Loretta, the guest manager, was wonderfully kind and helpful, we could not have asked for more. We stayed in another "Resort" near by a couple of years ago which was a huge dissappointment. The surfside blew that place away. It will be the 1ST place we call the... More

The Surfside Motel is a cute, clean, and comfortable place to stay in Rhode Island. Although this may be the closest motel to Charlestown Beach, it is far enough away that you probably won't want to walk...but the motel is centrally located to everything we wanted to see and do. We spent a day checking out the lighthouses in the... More
