Does anyone know of any cheap hotels/motels/inns just south of Newport, RI? I've been on the internet all night looking for some "Mom and Pop" establishment. Jon's kid has a bike race in Charlestown area and we plan on doing some geocaching. My eyes are bugging out.... Oh yeah... cheap means under $70 (is this an impossible task?).

Exactly! RULost2? and I were in that area a couple of weeks ago, but we stayed in the Holiday Inn Express in Swansea, MA (http://www.ichotelsgroup.com/h/d/ex/1/en/hotel/gswan), just north of RI. We did some caching in the Newport area - in and amongst the HUGE summer mansions - and a lot of caches are accessible from some VERY nice shoreside bike trails.

But this is a good time to go down there. There are a LOT of small motels - obviously not big enough to be on the internet - and it's early enough so that you won;t have to worry about summer tourists. Especially is the weather is like it is today.

I say just go and find a place when you get there. :D:D
