4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We only stayed at the MSGH for one night and had a very good experience. The two staff we encountered were very warm and welcoming and there for assistance if we needed them, but otherwise gave us privacy and space. We found the included breakfast a nice addition, and there are several options to choose from. We stayed in one... More

We were so excited to be staying at the MSGH but much to our disappointment, the breakfasts were mediocre with the same menu selections every day. Mark was just a bit arrogant saying "he didn't need practice cooking" while he brought me the wrong order. My wife heard him grumbling about it in the kitchen. Also we had food allergies... More

My wife and I just returned from 4 days in Newport and really enjoyed the Marshall Slocum Inn. We stayed in the Rose Room which was really clean, had a great king bed, super air conditioning, and in room i-Pad which we used to look up stuff in Newport and map our way around. Free Wifi worked great. The inn... More

Wonderful first time trip to Newport. Arrived late and keys to room were waiting on kitchen counter for us. Stayed in room #3. Room and bathroom were very clean and bed was comfortable. House is old so the sink is in the main room and bathroom only has small standing shower and toilet. When I mean small standing shower, I... More

Thank you for your review.

Our room was so nice! Very beautifully decorated and comfortable. Downstairs there is a deck in the back. In the morning, Mark serves a selection of gourmet breakfasts. Breakfast is included in the price of the Inn and is easily worth $50 on its own. In the afternoon or evening, you can also sit on the deck with a bottle... More

First let me clarify this by saying I'm generally not a huge fan of B&B's-- I like my standard luxury hotel conveniences and amenities. But when in Newport... The Marshall Slocum is a charming old inn and the staff couldn't have been nicer. Breakfast is ordered off a menu and is delicious. Coffee and tea are available all day and... More

The rooms were nicely decorated and very comfortable. We stayed up on the third floor and never heard a peep out of any of the other guests (or any noise from the street). The reception snacks were yummy. The breakfast was PHENOMENAL. We enjoyed sitting in the porch swing. We were able to walk to the main business section of... More

Could not have been more pleased with my recent stay at this wonderful bed and breakfast. The owners were incredibly welcoming and accommodating and made our spontaneous trip to Newport unforgettable! The building itself was very well maintained and the decor was comfortable yet elegant. We stayed in the Library Room which was breathtaking. This room beautifully combined masculine and... More
