    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

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

    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
