“Home away from Home!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2009

My husband and I are from Pennsylvania and we stayed at the Surfside motel with our children during our vacation in August. All I can say is that we couldn't have found a better place. The staff was friendly and helpful. They really made you feel at home. The rooms were very clean and tastefully decorated. It was just a short drive to the beaches and there were also a few good restaurants in the area. We had a good time and we will go back there again!

My husband and I had our family and friends stay at The Surfside the weekend of July 18th as we were getting married on Charlestown Beach that Saturday evening. The reception that our guests received from Todd and Loretta at the motel was nothing short of fantastic!

After our wedding ceremony on the beach, and after our reception dinner at a local restaurant we all went back to The Surfside to carry on with the celebration for a while. Todd even went so far as to purchase a firepit and the wood for our use as we all sat around it having a great time with our family and friends late into the night. We can't thank them enough for making us feel so welcome.

We all had such a great time that we're booking rooms for next year for a family reunion the same weekend! Can't wait to return!!

I loved this place. The rooms were VERY CLEAN and decorated nicely. The rooms were bright and cheery. They have an outdoor shower with hot and cold water for after the beach trips.
They have gas grills right out side the rooms, We had some friends meet us there for a barbaque which they had no problem with. It is pet friendly and Yet Still Very Clean.
There is always someone on the premises for anything you may need during your stay. You can walk to restaurants and shoping plus it is close to other beaches and towns if you choose to check them out.
YOU CAN'T BEAT THIS PLACE FOR THE RATES. THEY ARE VERY REASONABLE
If you are looking for a great getaway place then stay here. If you are looking for a Luxury Hotel then stay at the Ritz. .... THIS PLACE IS GREAT
