@newport22:  Hello!  I just went through this nightmare for Labor Day Weekend, so I was in the same boat.  I’m also having an Oceancliff wedding ๐Ÿ™‚  I have scouted out all of Newport and I can honestly say that these are your best bets for room blocks:

1) Quality Inn

2) Comfort Inn

3) Courtyard Marriott

4) Royal Plaza

None of these are very fancy, but all of these are around or less than $200 and allow room blocks.  The Quality Inn and Comfort Inn are in a great location, right across from the beach, Atlantic Beach Club, the Cliff Walk, and are very close to town.  The Courtyard and the Royal Plaza are a bit outside of town (less than 10 mins), but are just another couple of options.  The Royal Plaza is THE ONE hotel ANYWHERE near Newport that will allow a one night stay.  Seriously, you won’t find another!  

There are tons of other really nice hotels and B&Bs in Newport (check Trip Advisor), but you can’t block rooms at them without some ridiculous requirements – like having a catered event there and spending X amount of dollars (might work if you want to do rehearsal dinner or day after brunch there).  The Marriott, Hyatt, and Viking are the biggest hotels and then there are tons of great boutique hotels.  Unfortunately most will be above your price point and won’t let you block.  B&Bs have some less expensive rates, but not a ton of rooms, so you could always send your guests a list of some really nice and affordable ones and just encourage them to book early.

Good luck!
