Despite high prices, hotels in Newport are generally booked far in advance for special event weekends (like during the Newport Jazz Festival or Newport Folk Festival).

Sometimes when hotels are sold out during big event weekends, you may be able to find a room at one of the smaller B&Bs…some even allow dogs!
