“Our favorite B & B”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

We always enjoy staying at the Scarborough Inn. The staff is wonderful, always so friendly and helpful. Our room is spotless and always so comfortable. The breakfasts are the best, each day of our stay it's something different but always delicious. It's a very relaxing place to sit on their wrap around porch on the rocking chairs and enjoy the afternoon tea and treats, which are always delicious. Perfect location near the beach and boardwalk. This is our fifth year of staying there and look forward to many, many more.

Room Tip: Our favorite is Room #5 Sweet Thymes, it's on the main floor, we also stayed in #3 which is on t...

This was my second stay at the Inn. It is the perfect location (3 blocks to the beach/boardwalk).
The room was sufficient, and the breakfast was tasty. An added bonus is the afternoon "treat" of tea, coffee, cheese, crackers and parfaits!

We appreciate the title, "Ideal" as our daily goal is for guests to feel comfortable, welcome, and relaxed in the homey atmosphere of the Scarborough Inn. Our location, just 1 1/2 blocks to the beach, boardwalk, and also close to restaurants, shopping, dining, and recreation park - make our B&B a wonderful choice in Ocean City, NJ.

About 20 years ago, for my wife and I, The Scarborough Inn served as our vacation home away from home. It was always a welcoming, clean and cozy place to stay for a number of years. Sadly, our family outgrew the Inn and we haven't had a chance to go back until this weekend. We so much enjoyed our return! We were greeted like no time had passed at all. Amazingly, Gus and Carol recognized us and knew us by name.

The inn is so bright, lovely, clean and quiet. Breakfast was very good. Service was fantastic. Parking was a breeze in their adjoined lot (which for those that know OCNJ, parking can be a challenge!) Rooms are very nicely decorated and it appeared each had a unique them. All rooms have a private bath. You can sit and enjoy their large wrap-around porch, sit by the fireplace in their living room, take in a book in their library or play a board game/listen to music in the Sojourn Room, located on the top floor. Thank you to Gus, Carol and their staff for making us feel welcome in your home!

It is so nice to have favorite guests return to the Scarborough Inn. How wonderful that you two are again able to enjoy some "couple" time and that you choose to spend it at our B&B. We'll look forward to welcoming you to the inn next time you're in Ocean City for a grown-up getaway!

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.

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.
