First of all, from the first contact, the staff was very courteous and helpful. When we arrived the rooms were as depicted and throughout the stay the cleanest I have ever experienced in many years of travel. Attention was paid to every detail.

The Surfside is excellent for our needs. Small and personable business, with freshly decorated rooms, micro, and mini-fridge that are well kept by Loretta. BBQ grills on site too. Just off 1A, near Mini-Super Mart, pizza, and Breachway Grill. Within a few minutes to the beaches. We've enjoyed it for many years. Almost hesitate to tell others, so we can...

The rooms were clean and comfortable. Good location for walking and an easy trip to nearby beaches. Loretta was attentive and constantly asked if there was anything we needed. Best of all, many of our neighbors in the motel were long-time, repeat customers and all extremely friendly.

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....
