Hi, I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay. Frankly I surprised at how many people like our outdoor shower! I need to add towel hooks, soap dish, etc. to make it even better. Thank you for your business and for your kind words, Tom Sea Shell Motel / Beach Ball Inn / Sea Spray Inn More

The rooms aren't huge. But they are all you need. Small refrig, microwave, free wifi, very short walk to the beach. There is a lovely backyard on the salt pond with picnic tables, gas grill, hot tub, paddle boat, kayaks, gas grill, and a clothesline. We spend very little time in the room. This is our favorite and most economical... More

Comfy/clean new beds, redecorated rooms with mini-fridge and microwave, free wifi and parking, peace and quiet after 10p and a block from beaches, restaurants and shops!! And a pink paddle boat to use on Lake Winnapaug free of charge. This is our go-to motel when in Westerly! Super affordable too!!

Wonderful room - very clean and spacious for a single and hound dog. Debra, Michelle and Tom were very nice - the special touches...flowers like Provence filled the 2nd floor railing (ie no towels or swimsuits allowed). Large Pink Seashell too!! They also own Beach Ball Motel across the road, and the planters and colors were fabulous. I didn't use... More

Hi, I'm glad that you (and your dog) enjoyed your stay with us. We put a lot of time and effort into the property, and we treat our guests as we would like to be treated ourselves.

Hi, I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. The end of June is when activities around the beach just start to get going (i.e. beach movies, car show, hermit crab races) so there is something happening almost every night of the week! The lighting is Debbie's handiwork. I never thought that the lighted outdoor curtains would look good... More
