There are 39 towns and cities in this beautiful state so choosing among cheap hotels in Rhode Island isnâ€™t that hard.
Narragansett boasts some of the best beach in the entire New England region, while Providence is the largest city in the state and the center of the commercial activities.

Newport, located on Aquidneck Island, is famous for the jazz scene and the yachting community.
