We chose this hotel because it was the most affordable option that would allow us to bring our dog. The hotel is old and it looks old but the rooms and pool are clean. The staff was friendly and the beach is only one block away. I think the price should have been cheaper. Would I choose this hotel again?... More

this was our third trip to the barefoot mailman, they are truly pet friendly, our dogs will not walk past the office without stopping in for a treat from one of the front desk people, the rooms are very clean and the king sized bed is better than the one we have at home. anything that I have ever asked,...

First time at the barefoot mailman with my family and my dog! From the moment of arrival the front desk staff were incredibly helpful and playful with our dog including giving him treats! We arrived to our room and were greeted by not a pet smell but a lovely clean fresh smell. Beds are super comfy! This will definitely not... More

Stayed at this hotel for a weekend getaway. Ocean City is a great place to visit however; do not stay at this hotel. The staff was very rude and the receptionist couldn't be more difficult. We stood out because "we aren't the typical race around us" and I strongly believe this is why we were treated differently. I would never... More

Went to this place as a Team for Ocean City Car Show 2014. From the moment we walked in this place we was treated different from the guest that was in front of us and the guests that came in after us. The gentlemen at the front desk requested a valid picture ID from each of us otherwise none of... More

I agree with many of the other reviews. This is an ideal place to stay when traveling with dogs; the pet fee is only $10, very accessible areas to walk your dog with plenty of poo bags, and many other friendly pet owners staying at the motel. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and hospitable. The location is also... More

Stayed for a long weekend during Sun Fest at the Barefoot Mailman and could not have asked for more. Great location, extremely pet friendly, and very clean. I don't think there is a thing they could do to improve. Best dog friendly hotel bar none!

It is the cleanest pet friendly hotel I have ever been to. The staff is so friendly and effective in their work. The rooms are very well equipped and absolutely odor free. The Hotel is within walking distance to restaurants and a mini-mart and the beach. The pool was cleaned every morning we were there.

We enjoyed our stay at the Barefoot Mailman. Upper rooms do get a better view of the bay. We enjoyed sitting out on the balcony and watching the sun set. Room did have a slight doggie smell, but that is to be expected since it is pet friendly. We did not have a pet, so we were more sensitive to... More

Just returned from visit. Front desk staff friendly and helpful in every way. Room and bathroom was spotless. Totally dog-friendly, go out of their way to insure every need is filled for guest and pet. Loved the double bed and super king bed in room. Furniture appeared to be recently purchased and well kept as everything was. This is not... More
