Waterfront, beachfront lodging ranges from family motels to romantic inns

Rhode Island is the Ocean State, so it is natural that many of its hotels, motels, resorts, and other lodgings are oceanfront or beachfront digs. Waterfront and beachfront lodging in RI can range from cozy inns to brand name chain hotels scattered along the ocean throughout Newport, South County, and into Misquamicut, Wakefield, and Watch Hill. A great vacation option for children and families and people who love the sand, sea, and sun (and don’t forget the numerous fairs and festivals throughout the year).
