Stayed for a few days toward the end of June. The Scarborough Inn was very nice and we had a great trip. Good location and lots to do in the area. Great staff all the way around and the morning breakfast each day hit the spot. Big porch area to enjoy the morning coffee. The Inn was very clean and... More

The staff was overly friendly and helpful! It had such a nice atmosphere and the rooms were so very clean - especially the bathrooms! Had a delicious breakfast each morning - you will be full every morning! The front porch was perfect for relaxing during your daily adventures and the location is perfect! Close to everything - downtown, the beach,... More

I had the pleasure of spending two nights at the Scarborough Inn last week and it was a great experience. From the moment I walked in and was greeted by the Innkeeper, Brandie, I felt right at home. My lovely room was on the second floor and I needed help with luggage, which was taken up to my room for... More

I stayed at Scarborough Inn, Ocean city NJ in May (for friends wedding). The place looked nice from outside however, dark, musty, and unfriendly staff awaited inside. my wife found mice dropping in our room along with cobwebs. She alerted the owner regarding our concerns however, He never showed up. VERY DISAPPOINTING!!

Wow, this is a real surprise review. While I must acknowledge the negativity in the review, I must say that I, as the Owner/Innkeeper, have NEVER had anyone tell me they saw the items you mention in your review. Had that actually occurred, most people who have stayed here regularly, know that I am the first to investigate and rectify... More

We were pleased with our stay at the Scarborough Inn. The owners are so friendly and very helpful. The food was delicious and the staff were so accomodating and pleasant. The room was comfortable and the Inn is so cozy. I would recommend this establishment in a heartbeat. Will return in the future.

We recently took a weekend trip this month to Ocean City. My husband looked on line and found this very nice B&B. It was about 1 1/2 blocks from the ocean/boardwalk. They have their own parking lot and they give you beach tags as well. It's a very quiet area and we really enjoyed sitting on the large porch. We... More

This was our first visit to a bed and breakfast in Ocean City but we were not disappointed staying at the Scarborough Inn. We wanted to celebrate my husband's birthday in a special get-a-way. Our stay was very pleasant here. The rockers on the front porch were perfect for quiet reading and relaxation. Our room #30 was appropriately decorated and... More

My sister and I stayed at Scarborough Inn for the weekend and we loved our entire stay. The property is in a great location. The rooms are comfy, clean and a good size. Beach tags and free parking passes were provided - which was a great perk. Both mornings they served us a delightful breakfast - much better than expected... More

Although this is a bit late (stayed back in August), I decided to write because of the memorably positive experience we had. This was a "girls weekend", three friends visiting from NJ, PA and Germany (and one child). Each of our 3 rooms was very tastefully decorated and quite comfortable. The beds were very comfortable! The afternoon "snacks" were delicious... More
