Unexpected delight

5 on November 06, 2015

It was wonderful to arrive in Newport and claim our room early (1PM); most places permit check in at 3PM. Our room was lovely and the bath beautiful and modern. Breakfast was home made and delicious. Wish we could have enjoyed another day.!

beautiful, I would come back

Thank you for your review. All rooms in the Inn have iPads rather than TV's. Each iPad has Netflix and network television apps. We have a television in the common area of the Inn for guest use.

My daughter and I needed a little getaway, and were so lucky to find this amazing Inn!

The only sad thing was leaving. Thank you for our terrific weekend!!!

Only one night

3.0 on June 30, 2014

We were only there one night of a six week south to north trip. The location, room, breakfast & helpfulness of the staff were all great. Would go back if in Newport again & hopefully stay longer.

Our Favorite Get-Away!

4.8 on April 23, 2013

My Fiance and I have stayed at the Marshall Slocum Inn a few times. We have recommended the Inn to both friends and family. There is plenty to do in the area and our hosts were great! The rooms were lovely and the food was amazing! My personal favorite was the blueberry pancakes!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review. We are glad that you have enjoyed your stays with us and look forward to another visit from you in the future.

Stay in Rhode Island

3.8 on September 28, 2012

We had a very pleasant stay at the Inn the staff were helpful and knowledgeable and we had a good choice of breakfasts. The room was clean and tidy and if we go back to Rhode Island we would consider staying there again.

Warm and welcoming

4.8 on September 27, 2012

We have stayed at the Marshall slocum inn several times now. Each time we stayed in a different room, most recently in The Snuggery. It was a bit tight but not uncomfortable. The bathroom is up a spiral staircase which is a little different. Each time we stay there, Mark remembers us which is nice considering how many guests they must see. The breakfast is always amazing with several choices based on your diet preferences. The inn is a superb choice! Don't miss out.
