Bait and Switch

Pros: Near boardwalk. Free parking. Badges and towels.
Cons: Many things
Location: Many things to do in Ocean City but it's dry so young single people are scarce. BYOB.
I chose this inn over others because it advertised a full breakfast and a king bed. We got neither. The owner told us that people who book through a third party don't get breakfast. He said we should know this from the reservation confirmation. How many people actually read (or even open) the fine print on a confirmation. The beds were twin with two different, cheap bedspreads. The room did not look like the room in the picture. It had a garish mix of art and it was very small. Hard to find a place to plug devices in. Twice we needed help from the desk and no one was there (normal working hours). The owner told us after we had breakfast elsewhere and checked out that we could have a free breakfast that morning. Useless. Travelocity should not allow businesses to charge more (provide less) to people who book through them. Why would anyone use them?. That said, the hotel is an original, classic, Ocean City Inn near the boardwalk with attractive common areas.

We stayed two nights at the Scarborough Inn and it was a pretty nice! The breakfast each morning and wait staff were absolutely amazing! The rooms were a decent size (bathrooms could be a bit bigger, but they worked). The bed was alright. We wish we could have used the ceiling fan, but it was pretty dusty (again, just a small thing). The location was great and for the price, it was a good choice. We would visit again!

It wasn't a pleasant stay. I only slept there. Avoiding being there. Would have left if there was a vacancy in another establishment

Absolutely Wonderful!

The Scarborough Inn is a wonderful bed and breakfast! We loved everything about our two night stay. It's close to the boardwalk and the beach and has ample parking. We chose the Scarborough Inn because we really liked the rooms that were pictured on the website. Obviously, location is important as well, but it was the beautiful room (#28) that sealed the deal. The only problem we had was not their fault - we reserved #28 and for some reason, it came through Travel Website as #29. Fortunately, #28 was available and Gus, the Innkeeper, very graciously made the necessary changes. The bed was quite comfortable and the room was wonderful. It's an old building, and the walls and woodwork and door knobs and locks show their age. But they work. . .and the room was very nicely decorated. The bathroom was nice - it was more than big enough, the fixtures were fine, and there was no problem with water pressure. The window air conditioner was up to the task of cooling the room, however, for a good portion of our visit we opened the windows to a nice breeze. There was a medium-sized flat-screen LCD television and it had the best selection of cable channels I've ever seen in a hotel! Breakfast was a real surprise! Continental breakfast says to me, "coffee and bread with butter." Far from it! Both days featured a gourmet breakfast with lots of fruit, sausage or bacon, etc. Unbelievably good! After the first morning, I gave up my plans for breakfast at the Chatterbox to eat at the Scarborough Inn! All in all, it was a wonderful experience! I've been staying in Ocean City for over half a century and this was one of the best. Thank you Gus and Carole!
