A weekend in Ocean CityPosted May 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel is on the main road entering Ocean City - we were a little sad that it was so urban. It turned out not to be noisy, and the flow of cars going by was acceptable. Karen made us very welcome, and her breakfasts are delicious (home made waffles and pancakes, omelets, muffins and fresh fruit). There's water, soda, cookies and candy available at all times. The room was small but just right. The bed cover was dirty, there was a weird stain on the ceiling and the surfaces were dusty. Otherwise there was everything we needed in the room (hairdryer, soap, shampoo etc). The house is a bit messy - there's lots of stuff everywhere, but we didn't spend much time in the main living room. Overall an ok experience. Karen's friendliness and food save the day.

SERENDIPITY @ 712 9th street OCNJPosted Oct 14, 2012
Pros: It's VERY quiet here and centrally located,albeit on a main street.
Cons: No complaints !
Location: CENTRALLY LOCATED,and only 60 seconds to the boardwalk !
Serendipity is at most 60 seconds from the OCNJ boardwalk.The breakfast that the owner Karen makes are to kill for ! The breakfast is so awesome and filling that it usually hold you over til dinner.Many of the guests have stayed here before.We plan on returning again ourselves.Make your reservations early !

We were in one of the smaller rooms; luckily, we were only there 1 night. The bed was very comfortable, it's just there wasn't a lot of walking around room. Had a chance to look at some other rooms, and they were really lovely. I would definitely stay there again, but would try for a larger room. The breakfast was OUTSTANDING!!!! Karen, the proprieter, couldn't have been nicer.

Serendipity Bed & BreakfastPosted Apr 25, 2011 on Hotels.com
Awesome B&B ~ can't wait to stay there again. The inn keeper is very obliging and accomodating. Room was excellent and very clean. Food was the best breakfast I have ever had at a B&B anywhere.

We enjoyed our stay at Serendipity. My freind is a clean freak and she could not find anything wrong with the room. We plan on returning for another stay.

Can't wait to go back!Posted Oct 15, 2009
We were really impressed with Serendipity and would definitely stay there on our next trip to OC, NJ. The owner, Karen couldn't have been nicer. The home was decorated beautifully, our room was very comfortable and the breakfast was delicious! We felt right at home.

Breakfast is Great!Posted Nov 17, 2008 on Hotels.com
The Seredipity is so charming. Located in the center of town within walkng distance to the beach and everything else. The breakfast is terrific, tasty, hot and fresh. The only thing we didn't like was the room - small and hot!

Great Value of ServicePosted Sep 25, 2008 on Hotels.com
We came into the place a little early for check in and instead of shooing us out, Karen took us inside and gave us the lay-of-the-land. Included in the price of the room was an amazing breakfast from a decent-sized menu and a parking pass to the lot one block down the road. Very convenient. All around the house there were baskets set up with complimentary snacks in them, along with drinks in the fridge. Both my wife and I highly recommend anyone to stay here if you're looking for personal, very homely service!

Pure relaxationPosted Jun 18, 2008
My wife and I went away for our 25th wedding anniversary. I genrally don't go to bed and breakfast establishments but I was thrilled with Serendipty. The room were comfortable, clean and well maintained. The breakfast was unbelievable marvelous, Karen who cooks, cleans and always has a pleasant word was just a joy to be around. We will definitely go back, I have gone to Ocean City NJ for many years but I just found a new place to hang my hat.
