A good place if you're traveling with your pet. Rooms are standard, but clean. Walls are a little thin...easy to hear your neighbors and alot of street noise. Right at 35th St...close to everything. No dogs on the beach or you'll be fined. Beds were comfortable. Check in was friendly and quick. Plenty of parking on site. Pool looked sufficient,... More

We chose this because it was a great value and we could bring along our dog. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The pet area was convenient and they provided clean up bags in case you forgot yours. They made it so easy for us to take along our furry kid. The rooms were large. We had a kitchenette and... More

Nice clean property, pet friendly, comfortable bed, friendly staff, nice pool, and short walk to beach. Stayed here every year around Memorial Day, Nice improvements made every year. Great efficiency rooms. Wonderful dog park area. Couldn't ask for more!

I am pleasantly surprised by this place. We were displaced from our home for a couple of days and had to find a pet-friendly hotel. I have passed this place for years - certainly didn't think it would be a decent hotel. But it is! We didn't get an efficiency, just a regular room. But it still had a microwave... More

Barefoot Mailman is a great dog friendly hotel. The staff is great, the rooms clean and the full-size fridge was really great. Room was decent size with a king and a full size bed. For the price, I don't think you can beat it. Would stay there anytime.

While we have stayed here several times in the last 20 years we were unpleasantly suprised the hotel now accepts pets in all room's. They used to do only 2 floors for pets. But it was bearable. The beds need to be replaced. They have upgraded the rooms but not beds. I would stay there again in a pinch if... More

This was our second family visit: three rooms, two adult children, daughter-in-law, three dogs. Not the most elegant hotel, but it is very well maintained. It is most definitely cleaner than most large chain hotels that we have stayed in over the years. (Something one would not expect from a pet friendly hotel.) If you and your furry friend are...

We stayed here for two nights in April. The room was very big and good for our yellow lab to roam around. The hotel is not directly on the beach but is on the beachside of the road and a short walk away. Within walking distance of the hotel were nice restaurants, mini golf, and the boardwalk. The price of... More

Stayed in an efficiency unit with my Hubby, Son, and two dogs during spring break. Came here not expecting much but was very pleasantly surprised. This is a small pet friendly hotel essentially one block away from the beach. CLEAN and LARGE room with one king and one full size bed, new bedding, new shower curtain, plentiful towels and pillows,... More

In the last 4 years my husband and I have taken our dog for a short vacation to OC and stayed at the Barefoot Mailman Hotel. Each time we had a pleasant stay. The hotel was clean and had all the essentials needed. The only thing missing on our last stay this past March, was a hairdryer. The hotel is... More
