We arrived at the Inn at around 7pm to be greeted with an envelope with our name on it (as we had been advised by email that we would find). The Inn was easy to find and there were plenty of parking spaces. The envelope contained directions to our room and also a map of the local area and dinner... More

A last minute change of plans sent us packing for 2 days in Newport. While researching a place to stay we finally went to a B&B website and found the Marshall Slocum house. The price was reasonable and the reviews looked good so we decided to give it a try for our night in town. And boy are we glad... More

At this price I expect a bathroom! What we had was a cupboard containing a shower and WC. The washbasin was in the bedroom with nowhere to hang towels or store toiletries. There was so little space on one side of the bed that we got caught up on the curtain tie back as we tried to pass. An old... More

These guests were not satisfied the moment they entered the Inn. Lauren and I attempted to offer solutions to their problems but none were accepted. While we agree that Newport is an expensive town to stay in we pride ourselves on offering a medium price range for an above average product. These particular guests paid $215 for a Saturday night...

We stayed in the great little apartment I thought the price for a king bed with living room and kitchenette was incredible reasonable and the room was clean as a whistle. The breakfast was delish and light nothing greasy out heavy, just full of flavor! Only downside was the bed was kinda shot but comfy pillows helped. All in all... More

My friends and I spent three nights at the Marshall Slocum. Rooms were very comfortable and very quiet. Breakfast was delicious. Tea and afternoon goodies were a welcome break. The owner is very gracious. I did happen to be in the "Snuggery" room, which is comfortable and quiet, but would only recommend for a single person. I was by myself... More

This was my 2d time staying at this B & B, and it was every bit as enjoyable as my first time 7-8 years ago. The first time was with my husband, but this time I came with 3 women friends. Each of us had our own room---allowing us to choose a price point that fit each of our budgets--and... More

We have only given an average score because we thought the rooms were very dark and a little shabby and the furniture was not sturdy. Our room, no. 2, was small with a queen sized bed. We had nowhere to put our suitcases other than the floor and the windows did not fit well. The bathroom was a good size... More

Thank you for your review. Our rooms are painted in an antique white Sherwin Willam's paint with a white trim. The Slocum Room, Room #2, has 5 lights in the room and does feature a queen four poster bed. The guest room is outfitted with antique federalist style pieces which do occasionally require repair. Our maintenance team has since reviewed... More

Our first visit to Newport was delightful. We enjoyed the mansions, the Cliff Walk , shopping & the Tennis Hall of Fame. Mark, at the Marshall Slocum Inn, is the most inviting host/owner/chef of this wonderful little B & B. His blueberry stuffed french toast was yummy...still having dreams about it! It is worth staying here just for the breakfast... More

We only stayed here for 1 night but we so wish it could have been longer. This is a beautiful house with lovely rooms in a beautiful town. From the moment we arrived we felt like we were at home.
