As part of a road trip through New England my wife and I plan to visit Newport on saturday september 29th. I noticed that only a few hotels were available and hotelprices in Newport are very high. Looking into Middletown as an place to stay many hotels/motels also were not available. After enquiring with some of them we were told a two day minimum stay was required. Anything special happening in Newport that weekend or is it just because it's weekend? What would be good alternatives for a stay?
