We had a lovely 3 night stay at the Inn in August. The Inn is absolutely charming! It is very clean, cozy, and well decorated. It is a quiet, relaxing place to stay. We stayed in the Fonthill rooms and they were very comfortable. The staff/owners are wonderful people....very friendly and helpful. We truly enjoyed talking to them. The breakfasts... More

We stayed in the Chelsea Rm#28 on the third floor. The room is very large with a nice sitting area and a large bathroom with plenty of room for personal items. The Inn is very well kept and clean. The foreign students who are working there for the summer are exceptionally pleasant and can't do enough for you while serving... More

Wonderful!!!! Our nieces first comment was "we have never stayed in a "hotel" this old before". I explained that it was a B&B. They loved it. We were lucky enough to have the family room on the first floor, perfect for a small family. They couldn't wait to come from the beach to see the afternoon snacks :). Breakfast was... More

We have stayed year after year with many happy memories and no regrets! We really feel at home here. The owners and crew are very accommodating and it is only one block to the boardwalk and beach. Ocean City is a great family vacation destination!

The owners Steve and Brandi are very rude and unwelcoming . The breakfast was average at best. The room was clean and the bathroom was sufficient for a bed and breakfast . The owners would not budge over 10 minutes early to give out beach passes , on the same day we were checking in. Steve assumed incorrectly that additional... More

Brandie and her family make you feel every bit like you are at home with a wonderful daily breakfast, comfortable room and bath and snacks in mid-day. Scarborough Inn is located just a few blocks from the noted Ocean City boardwalk. Upon registering at the Inn you receive beach and parking passes for the length of your stay. The tremendous...

The room was great! (third floor) that conjoined for my sister and I. The staff was extremely pleasant and even allowed my 6 year old to nap on the couch in the foyer. Breakfast was amazing! Me saying this is saying something because I am NOT a breakfast person. The location was fantastic! (right down a couple of streets)

Old charm meets modern. When you step into the "lobby" you are actually in a living room and are immediately transported back to the Victorian age. The furnishings are comfortable yet true to that era. We stayed on the 3rd floor and had 2 adjoining rooms with one bathroom. The rooms were clean and neat, nicely decorated. Each room had... More
