Truly beautiful and colonial - But maybe it was the room location ... The street was quite under the window .... And very noisy ... We asked for a room downstairs but couldn't be accommodated - the steps were carpeted and narrow ... On the plus side the bed was so lovely ... and there was a common Fridge so... More

When someone makes critical comments the proprietors choose to make guest appear to be ill mannered see previous reviews. Accepting that everyone has differing views than yourself should be part of operating a business of whatever nature The front ground floor bedroom is dark due to the half length curtains to give some privacy ,also the situation of the Windows...

My mom, sister and I couldn't have had a better experience at the Marshall Slocum Inn! I would absolutely stay here again if we return to Newport. And the price is great for the service and comfort provided. PROPERTY: The rooms and beds were very comfortable and the rest of the property and grounds were beautiful. We spent our nights... More

This guest house advertises elegant rooms with modern amenities our room was dark(nothing like shown on advert) yes the bathroom was very modern but there was no hand rail in the large shower. The bed was ridiculously high (Dick Fosbury the US high jump champion would struggle). The iPad in the bedroom is a joke,put a TV in or just... More

The room this guest stayed in is our featured room pictured on our main page here on TripAdvisor. It has a large 8 foot window facing the front of the Inn and a large bay area with three 8 foot windows facing the side garden/trees. Dark is not the room we would use to describe this guest room with ample... More

Stayed for one night over Memorial Day weekend at the Marshall Slocum Guest House in beautiful Newport, RI. Our room on the first floor was beautifully furnished and comfortable, with a lovely full bath. Our host Mark was helpful and friendly and served us amazing omelets on the sunny back porch. Location was close to Mansions, Cliff Walk, Tennis Hall... More

Charming house; well appointed & comfortable room and bath; a laid back and informative host and chef-Mark; nice selections for breakfast cooked to perfection. Loved having a swing on the front porch, the front door open to the breezes, a back deck for breakfast, baked treats in the afternoon. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

Two couples traveling together- we loved our stay at the Marshall Slocum Inn. Our rooms were comfortable, showers huge, beds very nice, and the breakfast was great since we had several selections. One day I had a Greek Omelet while the others had pancakes. We also had help from Mark, the innkeeper, in planning our visit and selecting restaurants. Enjoyed... More

Lovely and cozy rooms and perfect breakfast choices graciously served by an attentive (but not too) owner/manager. Our second stay (the first was with parents who were equally enthused) and a top-notch experience both times. Situated on a quaint, tree-leaned street that is mercifully quiet but still an easy walk to the waterfront.
