Vacation in Newport but where to stay outside of Newport

Jump to last reply

After a year of planning my wife and I will vacation in Newport from Monday, August 9-through Thursday, August 12.
Many of you answered my questions last year as to where to eat,etc and I certainly would be willing to receive more input.
However, my specific questions are:
1. i have reservations at the Hampton Inn in Middletown (1.5 miles from Newport) for $183. per night as well as the Marriott Residence in Middletown (2.5 miles from Newport) and $20, cheaper per night and we would also receive Marriott points.

Will the extra mile from Newport make a difference since we intend to drive to Newport and park (WHERE) for the whole day and then return to the the motel? Obviously, the Marriott is a better financial situation but if the extra mile effects the vacation since it is on Commerce street and not Main street then we can be flexible.

2. Where is best place to leave your car during the day?

3. Could you prioritize the mansions in order if you had to choose only 2 mansions to see?

4. Best local place for breakfast and lunch and dinner?

Thank you all.
