My wife, several friends and I stayed at Marshall Slocum for 3 nights while in town for the Newport Folk Festival. The B&B was a little further away from Thames St than we wanted to be, but given our party of 6, it was one of the few lodging options around that could accommodate a party of our size. Despite being slightly off the beaten path, this turned out not to be an issue. The B&B was situated on a nice quiet street.
The rooms are great - well furnished, clean, cozy and comfortable. The communal/living room/dining room area was very pleasant and featured a seating area, TV, coffee/tea, menus for local restaurants and a lot of other reading material.
One of the highlights of our stay was enjoying breakfast out on the backyard patio each morning. The food is EXCELLENT (B&B owner, Mark, is a great cook.) The staff was also quite friendly and Mark offered up a number of restaurant suggestions in the area.
If you're looking for a B&B that is within a 5-10 minute walk from Thames Street and prefer quieter surroundings, give Marshall Slocum a consideration!
