Great place to stay in Newport. Mark, the owner, Chef and all round good guy was a pleasure to get to know. We stayed four nights while visiting our daughter and son in law who was studying at the Naval War College. Room was very clean and the bed comfortable. Breakfast beat any we have ever had at a B&B... More

After reviewing many places to spend a 2 night stay in Newport my friend and I decided to try an inn rather than a hotel. We were very happy we did as the experience was more than we hoped for. The people who operate this property could not have been nicer. Lauren greeted us on our arrival and spent time... More

Tried this location based on TripAdvisor opinions, was all good. Location is good, on-site parking, easy walking access to town center; good service (bike rentals, etc); breakfast adequate (large appetites might find it too small, not a problem in our case). It's an old house with charm, surprisingly large bathroom and room. I like the idea of replacing TVs by... More

$149 for a huge guest cottage. Centrally located. Easy access parking - included. Full American breakfast included. 24 Hour coffee, tea and beverage service. High quality bedding. Clean... clean... clean.... Lauren is friendly and happy to improve your stay. Her recommendations for food did not fit my needs... but, TripAdvisor saved the day! I ate at their number one recommendation.... More

We had the most wonderful stay at the Mashall Slocum Guest House! The house was gorgeous. We enjoyed our breakfast (which was top notch) outside on the shaded patio. We stayed in the "Snuggery", which was elegant and very clean. The location was great-- we enjoyed walking down to the pier through quaint neighborhoods. I have recommended Marshall Slocum to...

We really enjoyed our stay - very convenient to walk downtown, to restaurants and to a comedy show. Short drive to mansions and museums. The accommodations were lovely - everything was clean and the food was great. Bed was very comfortable and didn't hear any street noise. Staff was super friendly and helpful as we planned our weekend. In room... More

My husband and I were lucky enough to come across Marshall Slocum Inn’s website in 2010 while we were looking for a place to stay in Newport for a “mini-moon” after our wedding. Since then we’ve returned for many stays. Newport in general is one of our favorite places – we love the Cliff Walk, roaming around all day and... More

Beautiful property with great breakfast and afternoon tea with homemade baked goods. Lovely property offers outdoor or indoor space at breakfast. Room is very comfortable. Furnishings quaint and style appropriate for house setting.

Thank you for your review, it was a pleasure having you stay with us. Breakfast can be enjoyed inside in our dining room, or if the weather permits and the sun is shining, the back deck is a great setting for breakfast. More

From helpful directions in a confirmation email sent in advance of our stay, to a spotless, crisp and comfy room, to a delicious cooked breakfast, Marshall Slocum Inn was an excellent place to stay. In addition the chef was easily able to accommodate my dietary requirements (coeliac), having gluten-free bread available. The service provided was excellent.

The Marshall Slocum guest house feels like a home away from home thanks to the lovely staff and traditional rooms. The breakfast was outstanding and my only regret was that we only got to stay for one night. The surround area is stunning and with the sights of Newport I could've happily stayed here for a fortnight!
