    Default Geocaching and biking

    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?).

    Try the Econolodge.
    Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.

    Exactly! RULost2? and I were in that area a couple of weeks ago, but we stayed in the Holiday Inn Express in Swansea, MA, 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.

    The ocean is south of Newport.

    Here are a few that a Friend sent me.

    Royal Plaza Hotel 425 East Main Road, Middletown, Rhode Island $69

    Pineapple Inn 372 Coddington Highway, Newport, Rhode Island $45
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.
