The Surfside Motel: About Us

The Surfside was established in 1938, as a small, seasonal, 7 room motor inn, close to Charlestown Beach.  Since then we have grown to a 15 room, year-round, family run inn, that is a perfect spot for your beach getaway!

Your hosts, The Conklin Family, offer you a clean, quiet, com­fortable room at reasonable rates. We provide a “Budget Inn” price with a “Boutique Inn” feel.

All of our rooms have 2 double beds or 1 king size, refrigera­tors, microwave, private bath, A/C, cable TV, and wireless internet. We also have efficiency units with small kitchenettes, perfect for extended stays.

Outside we have picnic tables and gas grills, so you can cook up the catch of the day, and enjoy the sunset.

Enjoy nearby swimming in the ocean, or fishing and kayaking in the quiet Ninigret Salt Pond just behind the beach. Or just enjoy the salt air and many kinds of shore birds.

Visit Newport for its fabulous mansions and unforgettable nightlife, or historic Mystic Village. Dine at the Nordic Lodge, or catch a show at The Theater by the Sea, both of which are within 5 miles of "Surfside". For the more adventurous there is Foxwoods and the Mohegan Sun casinos just a short drive away.

Thank you for choosing Surfside! Learn more about us on Hope to see you all soon, Todd Conklin.
