Scarborough Inn
Ranked #5 of 20 Ocean City B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 4, 2012

We usually plan a long weekend in September to stay at the Scarborough Inn. We like it because it has a nice parking lot, a large front porch, a garden on the side and it is big enough for privacy but small enough that you still feel like a guest. Breakfast is a hot dish of the day with a buffet of fruit, cereal, waffles etc. There are snacks (usually baked) in the butlers pantry, along with tea and coffee. Rooms range from cozy to large, always clean and comfortable. You can check out each room on their website. Walk a couple blocks to the boardwalk, or walk into town to get a bite to eat. Gus and Carol are excellent hosts, extremely helpful and sincere.

Very clean and the breakfast was great.

Nice part of the city and the owners were very helpful!

The room was very big with huge jacuzzi and nice fireplace.

Literally walked to the inn harbor so location was perfect

This is a lovely review, unfortunately, it is not about our B&B as we are closed for the season after Columbus Day weekend / Fall Block Party in Ocean City, NJ. This guest stayed (somewhere?) in November.

My wife and I have stayed at Scarborough Inn for a few years now, and appreciate the friendly welcome when we get there. Everything is clean and quiet. Breakfast is excellent, hot and the service is always prompt. Room rates have always been very resonable.
Thank you, Gus, Carol, Jen, and all the staff for making our stay always pleasant.

My wife and I have spent many enjoyable weekends at this charming bed and breakfast. The atmosphere is ideal for a getaway. The food has always been excellent with you always get a full breakfast and great afternoon snacks.
I have found that the owners, Gus and Carol Bruno, and staff will bend over backwards to make sure your stay with them is relaxing and enjoyable.
We have stayed at other B & B's in Ocean City and have found the Scarborough Inn to be the best by far.

This was my 3rd time staying at the Scarborough Inn. Gus, Carol and all the staff are always warm and friendly. We love the fact that the rooms are all different and not a typcial hotel room. Breakfast is always very good. Not your typical bacon and eggs or pancake breakfast, but very good anyway. I often tell friends who are looking for a place to stay to try the Scarborough Inn. Thanks for a great weekend once again. We'll be back next year! Already booked the room.

My husband and I have been going to the Sarborough Inn for 4 years and it conistently provides us with a very relaxing getaway. The accomodations are lovely, clean and the staff is welcoming, helpful and very friendly. Breakfast is always delicious and there are snacks in the afternoon. The Inn is very quiet and relaxing. It is wonderful to just sit on the wrap around porch and read or get to know the other guests. We always meet friendly and interesting people'

It is located a short walk to the beach and boardwalk as well as very good area restaurants. There is free on-site parking.

Most of all, the staff is very helpful and welcoming. Everyone who works there really understands hospitality. It feels like coming home every time we go.

My wife and I had never visited the Jersey Shore and had been provided with a 3 day mid-week stay at the Scarborough Inn in Ocean City, NJ....Upon our arrival we were welcomed nicely by the front desk and all reservations had been in order.....complimentary afternoon snacks were available along with coffee and tea. Our upstairs room ( I believe they have 20 rooms) was delightfully adorned with wonderful comforter and the room was comfortably air conditioned. The bed and breakfast was a 2 block walk from the surf. The staff was able to provide us with some wonderful suggestions for evening meals other than the 2.5 mile boardwalk. Each morning during our 3 day stay we had a wait staff serve us breakfast each morning. The parking on site was nice and this time of year ( 2nd week of September0 meant for less traffic than would be found earlier in August. The large wrap around porch was nice to just sit and relax on, as well as a nice library set up on the 2nd floor. The B & B also had a computer to access emails as well. The nicest B & B that we have stayed at......I would highly recommend a stay at the Scarborough Inn and we must thank our daughter for such a nice gift.....by the way, she has stayed at this B & B several times herself..........

Thank you very much for this lovely review! It is so nice that you mentioned specific things that you liked about the Scarborough Inn - that helps us know what pleases you AND helps your fellow travelers, too, I think. How nice that your Ocean City vacation was a gift from your daughter - we LOVE that. We are thrilled that you characterize our B&B as "the nicest you've stayed at." We hope you will visit again.
