Marshall Slocum was the perfect place to stay for a romantic getaway. Walking distance to the waterfront, the beautiful mansions and fun downtown restaurants and bars. We stayed in the Snuggery, which was the best room in our opinion. Marshall Slocum had beautiful touches inside and outside, and an inviting front porch perfect for relaxing after dinner.

We stayed at the Marshall Slocum Guest House for four nights from August 4 to August 8, 2015. We stayed in the Slocum Bedroom and found it to be very comfortable,clean,and well-maintained. It had a really nice sized bathroom. We found the staff to be friendly and accommodating. After check-in Mark shared information about Newport, made recommendations, and answered all... More

The Marshall Slocum Guest House is a great little gem. I found this place online back in January while searching for a hotel for an overnight stay in order to attend the wedding of a friend's daughter on Goat Island in the middle of August. The prices at other places with good reviews were very expensive as is expected for... More

We don't normally stay at B&Bs so weren't sure what to expect. The inn was lovely. Our room was well decorated, clean, comfortable and with relatively new bathroom. Location was great (top of hill, 10 min walk to town). We heard the reviews about sound carrying in the inn, but it was fine (top floor room 6). Staff was very... More

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

Thank you for your kind review. The Snuggery is our smallest, most economically friendly guest room. It features a queen size bed and a spiral staircase within the room that leads to the private bath with shower. 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

Our breakfast menu features over 15 options which range from sweet to savory and we also offer seasonal items like Pumpkin Pancakes and Caramel Apple French Toast. We are also happy to accommodate special dietary requests and have gluten free bread, granola, and pancakes on hand every day. Often, like we did with this particular guest and two of their... 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.

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
