My wife, dog, and I had a great stay this past weekend! Pros- The staff were especially friendly during all interactions. One of the most comfortable beds we have ever slept on in a hotel. Room did not smell bad (since they took dogs, expected a dog smell, no unpleasant odors at all) Sandy dog area on property for doggy...

We decided to take our 3 dogs with us for a first 'family vacation'. After arriving at the place we knew accepted pets and learning they were closed (which was a blessing because it truly looked like a dump) we googled pet friendly hotels and Barefoot Mailman popped up. We couldn't get over the beautiful room complete with a microwave...

When my parents and my brother and his family and our family decided to try vacationing together we initially thought we would rent a house since we really wanted to be able to bring our dogs (my brother has 2 and my husband and I have 2), but after searching for days and not being able to all agree on...

The Barefoot Mailman Motel is the Most, Cleanest , Pet Friendly, Enjoyable Stay, and Close to so much! The up-dated units are very large. You have a Clear View of the Beach & Ocean. The city itself. And get a camera ready for those Beautiful Sun Rises and Sun Sets. The Staff is very friendly. They take time to make...

We have stayed here numerous times before. And we will continue to do so. Understand that this is an older hotel. But the rooms are clean and comfortable. And they welcome your dogs with open arms. Even having free dog treats for them at the front desk. The most important part of any hotel is the warmth that the staff...

What a relief to find a hotel that actually welcomes dogs with open arms. The location, one half block to the beach, with no streets to cross, could not be better. It is a smallish hotel but our corner room was spacious and very clean. And I appreciated that the windows were not all fixed shut, so we could enjoy...

We have stayed here before but the past 2 times we've stayed, the quality has gone down some. We arrived late night on Wednesday, Sept 18, just before midnight. I was so pleased that someone was still manning the front desk. I took my dog out to walk him before heading in and found there to be no poop bags...

Stayed here over Labor Day weekend with our Dog and we were very happy. From the moment we booked the Hotel to Check in, through our stay and Check out, the staff could not have been more friendly. They have treats for your pup at the front counter. When we asked about the Dog Park in Ocean City, the woman...

This was my first visit to Ocean City, but not my last! The Barefoot Mailman desk staff and cleaning staff were friendly and helpful, even going out of their way, and it was nice that to feel that the dog was welcome and not just tolerated. There were a lot of dogs, which also put him at ease and gave...

We have been going to Barefoot Mailman in Ocean City, MD, for decades, and they seem to be constantly improving. They have upgraded the facilities, making it a nice looking, comfortable place. They treat us like valued friends--and our dogs, too, as it is a pet friendly motel. The dogs start getting excited as we get close, as they know...
