Hi Newport Bees!
One of the trickiest things I have found about planning a wedding in Newport is setting up hotels for my guests. I’m particularly concerned about the two night minimum at most places. Many of my guests are traveling locally and will only need one night. Has anyone found ANY hotels or B&Bs that allow one night stays? THANKS!!!

The Seaview inn is on the Newport line, just in Middletown, it was the only place I found offering one night stays. But my guests booked at Howard Johnson in Middletown for one night stays, too.

@starfish: Thanks starfish! I’ll check that out. I’m having a heck of a time finding anything because it’s Labor Day weekend. Some places even have three night minimums that weekend! Eek!

I would say to look for other hotels in Middletown/Bristol. You could also look for places in Jamestown or Narragansett, but then they would have to pay the bridge toll. Sorry I don’t have any specific advice- all the places I can think of would have 2 night minimums

I just wanted to update this in case anyone finds themselves in the same situation. The ONLY place I have found within a reasonable distance to Newport that will allow a one night stay is the Royal Plaza in Middletown. It’s a pretty basic hotel, but the price is right and they will let people book for one night only during high season. They were also super nice!
