My husband and I booked the Scarborough Inn for a weekend away. Ocean City is a cute town with a great beach. The Inn was very clean, staff were helpful, breakfast was delicious. The TV in our room did not work (the cable actually, I think something was disconnected accidentally but I'm not sure), but we weren't there to watch TV and I forgot to mention it to the staff when we walked past them. Our room was quiet and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again, and we are contemplating coming back next summer for another weekend bringing our daughter this time.

We visitied Ocean City New Jersey for the first time last weekend and stayed at the Scarborough Inn. The innkeepers, Steve and Brandie are so friendly and helpful. We stayed in the Seaside Apartment with our grandkids and we each had our own room along with refrigerator, stove, microwave toaster and coffeemaker. The breakfasts provided were simply delicious!!! We were able to tour most of the rooms on our last day and they are breathtaking. I have nothing but high praises for this wonderful Bed and Breakfast. We will definatley be going back!

My friends and I have been staying at the Scarborough for over 12 years. In our opinion it is the finest, cleanest Inn in Ocean City, and the food and afternoon tea is the best. It's so great when you first arrive, they great and treat you like your family.I highly recommend the Scarborough Inn to everyone who wants to feel at home. Rita M.

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. Plus, you can walk to everything in the heart of OCNJ. Thank you to Gus, Carol and their staff for making us feel welcome in your home!

This was our second visit to Scarborough; the first was about 10 years ago. It's not often that a new visits tops the first, but this inn just keeps getting better. We loved it! Scarborough is a very lovely inn, comfortable and gracious, but not "stuffy." Each room is delightful, individually decorated, very attractive and restful. Living room and breakfast room are bright and inviting. But our favorite aspects of this inn are these: the wonderful staff (helpful, friendly, eager to please); the shady and tranquil wrap-around porch with rockers, tables and chairs (the perfect spot to read or relax); the care taken in cleanliness (always a plus). Lots of large and small amenities: guest after-beach showers on the lower level; guest game room/lounge; guest pantry area with afternoon refreshments; dvd players and alarm clocks in rooms; even make-up remover towelettes in bathrooms. Our visit to this inn was the highlight of our trip. We will definitely return -- and this time we won't wait 10 years!

This was our second stay at the Scarborough Inn. It's affordable, and it's been updated since 2011. The food is excellent and the service is top notch. I know we will continue to visit the Scarborough in the years to come.
Situated on the top floor, this very spacious suite is filled with light from its six windows and with special amenities - Scarborough Inn bathrobes, refrigerator, a flat screen television with DVD player, and a Melita coffee bar tucked in the armoire. The Sherwood features a king size bed, bistro table and chairs overlooking the garden, and a love seat fronted by a coffee table. The colors are warm and inviting - soothing ivory, forest green and lively terra cotta featured in pictures, prints.
The Jardin (Garden) Suite is just that – a soothing retreat featuring cool greens, soft beige, and crisp white. Throughout this spacious room, depictions of various ferns adorn bedding, furnishings, and decorative touches. Garden- inspired prints add to the tranquil ambiance. A comfy love seat and two armchairs provide ample seating for reading, TV viewing, or tête-à-tête. In-room coffee bar, robes, and refrigerator.
The imposing oak Pencil Post bed - centerpiece of this spacious suite - is adorned with a tasteful duvet in richly colored hues. The fresh, nouvelle interpretation of traditional fabrics is also found on coordinating pillows, accessories, and artwork - contributing to the striking, yet soothing, environment. The spacious sitting area contains a love seat, plus there’s a table with two chairs near bay windows overlooking the courtyard garden below. Thoughtful touches include a flat screen TV with DVD, in-room coffee bar, refrigerator, and robes for guests’ use during your stay.
Like springtime, this lovely guest room is filled with sunlight and flowered fabrics in an exuberant mix of rose, pink, aqua, turquoise, yellow and lime.

With a re-designed layout, this room feels more spacious and includes a bistro table with chairs, Victorian-style white iron headboard, andCable TV – the perfect combination of vintage with contemporary. Diminutive (small) private bath with shower.
Surround yourself with the beauty of traditional oak furnishings and the delights of garden-inspired fabrics in rich, jewel tones on a striking black background that cover the plump comforter. Bold stripes on the dust ruffle and Euro pillows further accent the graceful, queen-size Spindle bed. A wing chair is a comfortable choice for reading or enjoying a cup of tea from the Sojourn Room on the same floor. Diminutive (small) private bath with shower.
The rich cranberry and cream tones and familiar floral designs that embellish the furnishings in these two adjoining rooms have a fresh point of view with the unexpected addition of bright raspberry accents. One room features a queen-size bed and the second can be arranged with two twin beds or one king-size bed (your choice!) making this the perfect accommodation for families or close friends traveling together. Two TV's; one with VCR.
Using traditional nautical colors like navy, red, and crisp white, combined with décor that has a modern edge, is Seashore style – reinterpreted! The main room has a well-equipped galley kitchen, eating area, and sitting area with sleep sofa and flat screen TV. The bedroom has a queen size bed with plump navy comforter and carved headboard with subtle seashell motif. There is a reading nook and another flat screen television. The 3-piece bathroom is compact. Enjoy a little home-away-from-home!
Like the dawning of a beautiful day, this room is awash in gentle colors on coordinating prints – pastel yellow and pink, sky blue and white like billowy clouds. Rich wood tones on the carved headboard, bedside tables, and antique dresser add traditional elegance and a crystal chandelier adds a touch of romance. Two armchairs and a circular table provide a comfortable nook for reading or morning coffee in this lovely sun-drenched room. Queen bed with full bath
Traditional Jacobean motifs rendered in garnet red, sapphire blue, emerald green, & golden topaz embellish the plump quilt & complementary dust ruffle, valences, & pillows in this richly colored and appealing guest room.

Organic linens in complementary gray and white designs cover the duvet, mounds of pillows, and window treatments. Lively yellow accents throughout the room contribute a dash of panache. Upholstered side chairs next to a small table create a comfortable spot for coffee and conversation.
The “Sindia” room is named for Ocean City’s famous merchant sailing ship of the same name. Fanciful, import-style accessories are reminiscent of her cargo. A lively print in brilliant royal blue and white dresses the queen-size bed and is complemented by coordinating accessories. Framed prints on the wall picture sailing vessels of the period. An upholstered swivel-rocker is the perfect spot for reading or lounging in this charming room.

A comfortable upholstered chair is the perfect spot for enjoying a book from the inn’s Library.
The newly redecorated Lismore is actually two rooms connected by a full bath. The queen size bed with tall, carved oak headboard is adorned with a striking black and white toile coverlet and matching shams. The same classic fabric - plus coordinating prints - adorns the comfy daybed (in a separate room), drapes, pillows and valances. An infusion of lively turquoise, pastel blue, and a touch of vibrant primary colors keeps the palette unexpected and fresh. There's a bistro table with two chairs near windows that overlook the patio garden and two televisions - one a flat screen; one with VCR player - to provide ample diversion and comfort. (The daybed has a twin-size trundle to accommodate families with children.). Adjoining room (Queen & Daybed); full bath; TV in both rooms: 1 VCR
Enjoy this sun-filled room with an ocean glimpse. The “Aerie” features a striking, modern-interpretation of traditional paisley in bold colors on white as used on the bed cover and pillow shams. A playful pachyderm fabric on two armchairs, plus whimsical accessories, provides a fun counterpoint to more traditional accents. Diminutive (small) private bath with shower.
This generously sized suite is named for the Italian countryside that inspired its décor and is pictured on a half-round over the King-size bed. Both romantic and elegant, the bed is lavished with satiny fabrics that feature Cabbage roses and the use of appealing colors - rose, cranberry, and forest on a golden ground. Artwork and accessories are also inspired by Tuscany, as are the beautiful window coverings. Two swivel armchairs may be angled for reading or for watching the flat screen Cable TV with DVD. A personal-size jetted tub, in-room coffee bar, refrigerator, and Scarborough Inn guest robes all contribute to a memorable experience.
