My husband and I stayed at Marshall Slocum House over the Fourth of July Weekend. The B&B was perfectly situated very close to Newport's mansions and the waterfront. Mark was a wonderful host and we enjoyed the delicious breakfast (lots of choices!) on the outdoor deck each morning. Our room was very comfortable and nicely decorated, and the all-day […] tea and coffee and afternoon cookies available downstairs were a nice added touch. Couldn't be happier!

"Nice Newport Inn, fair price"
We enjoyed our stay very much; very nicely kept, clean and comfortable inn, close to everything. Off street parking and good breakfast included, and given the prices for surrounding hotels, fairly priced for what you get. Housekeeping excellent. Nice touch with robes in the room. Would have liked more light in the bathroom itself, plenty of light in […] the rooms, but could have used another lamp or fixture in the bathroom for shaving and makeup. Mark and the staff were very nice and helpful. I am sure we would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Inn close to town"
This is a terrific Inn in a quiet neighborhood, easy walk to the wharf. Very comfortable, great breakfast, and friendly and helpful hosts. Nice front porch to sip a glass of wine, backyard deck to eat breakfast. Would definitely return!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Our very first B&B experience, and it was lovely."
Lovely home, clean, convenient, easy walk to lots of great shops, the wharf, places to eat. They even provide an IPad with Netflix. Shower in the room is a big plus! The herbed eggs for breakfast were excellent! :)Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient Location and Ambiance"
Mark and Dana are excellent on-site innkeepers who make every effort to meet their guests' needs. Their B&B features attractively decorated private rooms, beautifully landscaped grounds, and delicious breakfasts featuring several choices each day. During our most recent stay, our fellow guests ranged in age from their twenties to sixties and came from […] as far away as Uruguay...so this place is quickly becoming a widely-known destination!

The Marshall Slocum Inn is quiet oasis located on a street of fine mid-19th century houses only 10 minutes' walk from Newport Harbor. Mark, the owner, is a friendly, low-key host, who cooks a terrific breakfast. Strongly recommended.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice bed and breakfast"
For people who love to walk this bed and breakfast was within walking distance to most Newport, RI attractions. We walked to all of the area mansions, with the farthest being only about two miles away (one way). The downtown and wharf area were only about a half mile (one way) away. We walked everywhere.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfy, small and friendly."
There was a lot of extra tourism information and the owner had gone to great lengths to ensue a full and varied program during the stay. Best breakfast of our holiday personally cooked by the owner. Intimate with only 6 rooms which were clean and comfy. Great old world charm in a prestigious area.Genuine Expedia guest review

Spent a lovely few days in this wonderful B&B in the spring. The hotel was centrally located, close to everything I wanted to see and do. The staff could not have been nicer or more accomidating.

"A Cozy Bed & Breakfast For All To Enjoy"
My wife and I love staying at bed & breakfast establishments, however The Marshall Slocum House has exceeded are expectations. The staff were very professional and courteous above and beyond what we expected. Mark, the owner made it a point to meet with us every morning of our stay just to have a down home conversation. He made a great breakfast each […] morning for my wife and I. He was very knowledgeable about the history and area and made sure we did not spend money that was going to be a waste of time. We were there from Monday to Thursday and each day all his rooms were occupied and each person had nothing but good things to say. I recommend anyone looking to stay at a bed & breakfast in Newport Rhode Island to stay at the Marshall Slocum House, it is well worth the money and it will exceed your expectations as well.

"close to all must-see sights"

"Great Newport B&B"
I found the staff to be immensely helpful and polite. The owner, Mark, was incredibly accomodating to our schedule and flight delay. Mark even allowed us to store our luggage at the house after checkout, giving us time to further explore Newport while waiting for our late afternoon flight. Room was cleaner than the Hyatt on Goat Island we had just […] left. Will definately be staying there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The Quintessential New England B&B with Elegance"
Such a charming and immaculately kept B&B. Elegant in an understated and most lovely way. It was spotlessly clean, not only our room, but everything. The staff was friendly, but not too much so, so that you could just do your own thing without imposed conversation. The front porch is wonderful, (we were there in July) as my husband and I spent our mornings […] out there after breakfast. And the street it is on is charming as well, with other houses and lots of trees and very quiet, enough away from the busy traffic on Thames, which is about 5 blocks away, but 1 block from Bellevue, which has the mansions to visit, and a more quiet shopping and cafe experience with less of the tourist feeling. Breakfast was served on the back deck each morning and was delicious, with several choices. We were within walking distance of everything. If we were to go back to Newport, we would stay there for sure - the quintessential New England B&B that you don't want to miss. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Wunderschönes historisches B&B"
Sehr schönes typisches Haus, in Laufnähe zum Hafen, Restaurants, Shops. Süßes Zimmer unter dem Dach mit herrlich bequemem Bett und Bettwäsche. Nur dass es nicht wie angekündigt eggs benedict zum Frühstück -sehr schön draußen auf dem Deck!- gab, müssten wo verkraften. Dafür könnten wir vom Frühstücksmenu 2 Dinge wählen, alles war lecker und frisch […] zubereitet. Nichtsdestotrotz alles in allem ziemlich teuer. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
民宿好きな方なら絶対にお勧めです。皆とても感じがいい。ただ、部屋が狭い。朝食は本当においしかったです。でもお水がマズイのか、コーヒーはひどかったです。ニューポートは、大きなホテルがなく、民宿ばかり。ただ、歩いていける場所が多いので、一泊は民宿嫌いな人でも宿泊をお勧めします。個人的には、ニューポートは大好きですが、次回は少し離れた普通のホテルにしたいと考えています。笑。でもこの町へは、1泊は泊まってみたらいいと思います。Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice place and good location"

We really enjoyd to staying one night in the guest house. Location close to Newport downtown was great, only 5-10 minutes nice walking. Breakfast was from the menu and served to the table in the nice garden terrace. We would like to come again....
"Peaceful and great stay at Marshall Slocum"
08/25/14 PMedeiros Melrose, Massachusetts
We stayed at the apartment-style lodging for one night only (unfortunately!). It was a great space, clean linens, newer bathroom, squishy high bed with footstool even. Very cute and loved that it was set apart from other rooms. Plenty of space for even a small family to stay for a few nights. We didn't use the kitchenette area but had a Keuring, dishes, sink, range, etc. at your disposal. Breakfast on the outdoor deck was memorable - several selections for breakfast and we got some great omlets, fresh fruit (no canned cocktails here), juices, all in the quiet company of the beautifully landscaped back garden in the sunshine.. Coffee could have been better, but plenty of places in town to stop afterwards. A leisurely 10-15 min walk to St. Thames, very welcome after a big dinner out :)
"Close to all attractions with great service"

Very personally run B&B with nice, clean rooms, attentive service and an excellent breakfast. Walking distance to the mansions and waterfront. Quiet area, beautifully renovated old historical mansion.
08/18/14 Jen M Westport, Massachusetts, United States
My boyfriend and I stayed here for our anniversary several years ago and had a great experience! Our room was lovely and I think it was considered one of the smaller of all the rooms. The bed was so comfortable and the furniture was gorgeous. This place has a great location where you are right between the mansions area and downtown. The breakfast was delicious. I would definitely go back here again!
"A gem of a surprise"
08/11/14 Monica1029 Waterbury, Connecticut
This was are 1st time staying in the Newport area. We stumbled upon the web site and decided to give it a try. Upon entering the Inn my husband and myself felt immediately at home. The Inn was cozy,charming & quaint but it didn't stop there. We met Marc the owner very friendly,knowledgable of the area & surprisingly our breakfast chef. The breakfast which consisted of a vary of omelets,pancakes fresh fruits & yogurts. DELICIOUS!!!!! Between 3-4pm they serve tea/coffee & cookies/scones. The rooms are cozy & very comfortable with our own private bathrooms. There is off street parking in the back of the Inn another pleasant surprise. All these amenities included in the room price. WE ARE DEFINITELY MAKING A RETURN TRIP BACK TO THE THIS INN.
"Great location, great customer service, great amenities!"
08/10/14 camerongreen1023 Charlotte
Loved the location - off a quiet street in Newport, within walking distance to the Cliff Walk, marina, and other restaurants. Mark and Lauren were so helpful with recommendations and were around during the day and early evening which is nice for questions and recommendations. Marks breakfast of a Portugese omelet was delicious, and he let us use their bikes to your Ocean Rd as well. Lauren continually gave my husband extra cookies as well offering us different varieties for our sweet tooth!
"Romantic Guest House, wonderful!"
08/06/14 William-Gonnie Helmond, The Netherlands
We booked the Brass room for 3 persons. Ik was really a wonderful nice room, in white and blue colors. The king bed was super nice and very high. The breakfast is also super! You can choose from a card and the friendly owner, Mark Spring is making the breakfast for you.Newport is a must-see if you visit the Boston area. The mansions are beautiful! Also the houses and the harbor in Newport, we made a lot of pictures! We come from Holland and hopefully we ever can come back!!
"Lovely B&B close to town"
This was our second time staying here and we enjoyed it every bit as much as the first. It is very professionally run with lovely accommodations and a first class breakfast. We booked our same room for next year before we left! (Newport Folk Festival weekend)
"Nice Bed and Breakfast!"
08/03/14 Mariongolden Wantagh, New York
My friends and I traveled to Newport to visit the mansions and were looking to find a nice affordable place. We stumbled upon this Bed and Breakfast and were very happy with our stay. Overall, it is a nice place, we stayed in the Brass Room. The king bed was extremely comfy, but the single bed was hard as a rock. The breakfast was good but portions are small. It is a residential area not in the heart of town, it's a bit of walk to get into town. They also enable you to buy the tickets to the mansions there which is convenient. Overall, I enjoyed my stay.
"A lovely inn with a perfect location near town."
08/02/14 Jennifer N New York City, New York, USA
Mark is a wonderful host. Always available to offer information, friendly conversation and a delicious breakfast. Perfect location away from busy town but a short walk away. We will definitely return again.
