Be warned, Karen seems like things only go one way, her way! You should consider The Scarborough Inn 720 Ocean Avenue, Ocean City, NJ 08226. A little background on me wanting to stay at this B&B. I have done the MS 150 for many years. For those of you that don't know the MS 150 raises millions of dollars for... More

Tom. I am sorry you felt my processes too strict. When you called the afternoon of your arrival to tell me your companion's plane would not be arriving until 11:30 pm I was taken aback. Since the airport is about 1 1/2 hours from Serendipity I knew your arrival would probably not be until 1:30 am. Expedia clearly lists checkin... More

We booked a last-minute trip to Ocean City for just one night when we were visiting family in Philadelphia. Karen was so easy to book with and it was not an issue at all being only a few days before our arrival. The location was ideal- less than a block away from the boardwalk on 9th Street- right by Shrivers.... More

Serendipity B & B is still at the top of my list of favorite B & B's. The warm & friendly atmosphere says Welcome Home as soon as you walk in the door. Karen always has goodies put out in the dining room, and there is always tea, coffee, & soft drinks available all through the day. Each room is... More

My husband and I spend a weekend here again in 2013, and it was excellent, as always. We stayed in the "Graciously Green" room which has a large bathroom - it's our favorite. The breakfast was wonderful as always!

My wife and I were there twice. 5 star all around. Karen always went the extra mile to make us feel at home. Her breakfasts? She should audition for " The Next Iron Chef". Room? Above and beyond the call to duty! Great hospitality!!

Serendipity is such a CUTE place. The rooms are lovely and homey. Bathrooms have plenty of space, bright, and all necessities. But, the breakfast is to die for. The stuffed French toast is the best I have EVER tasted. It is your own little heaven of a meal. We go back as often as we can. I would advise it... More

We had a very nice stay. All the staff was super friendly and helpful with our baby. We had a small "apartment" style room which was perfect, except for the super duper tiny bathroom. Definitely would want a larger bathroom next time, but this was the only real problem. Also, there was a very loud party until about 3am outside... More

While I would love to take credit for the lovely comments that were made, you did not stay at Serendipity! I do not have any apartments and since my rooms only accommodate 2 people, there were no babies here! I do not have a large parking lot - I lease parking across the street. I am close to the beach...

We recently visited Ocean City, NJ, and chose to stay at this bed and breakfast. The accomodations were quite comfortable, and while the room we were in was a bit tiny, it was not cramped. The bathroom, however, waas the largest bathroom I've ever been in in a bed and breakfast. Aside from the usual necessities, there was literally a... More
