We booked a Saturday night stay. Marshall Slocum Guest House was nearly the only place that would let us stay only 1 weekend night. The owner was wonderful and served and delicious breakfast. A short walk to town. We had a fireplace in our room.

Pros: 1. Fresh breakfast that's well made. 2. Clean rooms. 3. Soft thick mattresses. 4. Tiny but modern bathroom. 5. Friendly inn keeper. Cons: 1. Far from downtown. 2. You just get 1 hot item for breakfast. 3. You pay $190/night in the off-season for a tiny, dingy room (I suppose we got their worst room). 4. No view. 1... More

Please refer to our other reviews for an accurate description of our property. In response to this review many of the cons mentioned are simply not accurate. We are located in the Top of the Hill district of Newport, just 8 doors down from the Hotel Viking which is the first hotel to settle in Newport. A 10 minute walk... More

We only stayed at this beautiful Inn for one night on our trip around New England but we had a great stay in the snug. It was such a cute and unique room, with it's little spiral staircase up to the bathroom. The Inn is beautifully decorated with attention to detail and the hospitality was very friendly, helpful and welcoming.... More

This place is way way cool. Our room was HUGE and really well appointed. Loved both the front porch and the back deck. The breakfast was fantastic and the setting perfect. The walk to the harbor was a bit longer than expected but in no way too far. Enjoy!

We stayed here 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. Every morning the host presented us with a different breakfast menu to choose from. It was cooked to perfection. The B&B is situated close to the town centre and convenient for mansion visits. We did not tour any of the mansions because coming from the United Kingdom we have had... More

We arrived on a Sunday night for a one night stay, a gift from our children. We were immediately greeted by a cheerful hostess who gave us a quick rundown of the property and rules and then saw us upstairs to the Rose room. Check in was quick and simple. The room is on the third floor of the inn... More

Excellent - no question! if you are in the area stay here if you can. The town is lovely, a well known tourist attraction, and this B&B is well placed to allow you to explore the historic centre. The owner is very welcoming, typically reserved New England, but with plenty of advice on the area, if you wish it. An... More

We spent 2 nights in this wonderful guest house. Everything about this Inn was excellent - staff, rooms & breakfast. I would recommend it to anyone as a most comfortable and friendly place to stay.

Marshall Slocum Guest House is very clean, comfortable .... and so quiet that we slept in until 9:30 the first morning (first time we've slept past 8:00 in decades) and nearly missed breakfast. It is conveniently located (a pleasant walk to restaurants and shops) offers free parking and ... delicious apple pancakes! A very good value.
