We have stayed at the Scarborough Inn Bed and Breakfast in the past and this is our 3rd visit. It is the first time since ownership had been changed. We were welcomed wonderfully by the innkeeper on July 10th. We had a two night reservation as we enjoyed all that Ocean City could offer on a hot weekend. We had... More

My husband and I love this Bed & Breakfast, it's clean and the staff is very friendly. We always pick the Scarborough Inn when we go to Ocean City, NJ for the comfort and relaxation it offers. Its a short distance to the beach and boardwalk. The breakfast is good and at 4:00 they offer snack and beverage. I am... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Scarborough Inn a couple of times and enjoyed every minute. Close to the beach and Boardwalk yet still quiet and relaxing. LOVE the porch!! Sit on the porch in the morning or evening and enjoy the sounds and smells of the ocean air, always a perfect breeze too. Can't wait to go... More

Steve and Brandie make you feel right at home the moment you enter the house. They address you by name like theyve known you for years. They go out of their way to add all the personal touches in making your stay a memorable experience. Brandies home made strata is the best! Every time we stay they have something new... More

My husband and I have been staying at The Scarborough Inn for at least 20 years and have never been disappointed. Over those years we have stayed in almost every single room at the Inn, each one beautifully decorated with very comfortable beds. The breakfasts are delicious and varied. The location can't be beat - right in the center of... More

The Scarborough Inn is an extremely delightful Bed and Breakfast. Each room has it's own special charm. The innkeeper, Gus, is very accommodating. Spending time on the porch while rocking in charming rocking chairs has it's own special charm anytime, morning to late night. It's location is perfect, being quite close to the board walk and beach as well as... More

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! And, although we know first hand that Gus (& Carol) ran a clean, efficient, wonderful Inn during their ownership, we (Steve & Brandie) bought the Scarborough Inn in April 2014, and are right in the heart of our 2nd season, which is running very well! We are so happy your vacation was... More

Personalized rooms with nice little touches...great for a 2nd honeymoon or getaway! Breakfasts were good too. Family friendly but quiet. A little pricey, but nice. Warning: No elevator so if you are on the 3rd floor be prepared.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. My wife and I take great pride and dedication in making sure our guests feel right at home during their vacation. And your advice about the top floor is right on par. Yes, if you have trouble w/ steps, this may not be the place for you, although myself and my staff... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for two nights, the weekend after Memorial Day. We thoroughly enjoyed the Scarborough Inn. While it is aged, the owners do an excellent job running the place. One thing we really enjoyed, unexpectedly, was the drink station in the hallway on the main level. There was always water and iced tea, as well as coffee... More

Thank you for your great review! It is a pleasure welcoming guests such as yourselves to our "home" here in OCNJ. My wife and I are always striving to improve the Inn since we took over April 2014. The drink station was her idea, and it has been a big hit, not to mention the candy or trail mix that... More

Upon our arrival we were expected and welcomed which is always a great way to start. Steve and Brandi introduced themselves and told us a little about the Inn and what we could expect. We were a couple hours before check in but were accommodated with our parking pass and Steve took our "beverages" to the fridge to keep cold... More

My husband and I have been enjoying the Scarborough Inn for over 15 years. We spent a two night stay towards the end of May and were excited to meet the new owners, Steve and Brandie.
