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

We decided to stay at this hotel because we wanted to bring our English Bull Terrier along as so often we have to leave her behind. We didn't realize how centrally located the hotel would be. It is really, really handy to get just about anywhere in Ocean City. The staff were really sweet and when we found we were... More

Stayed here the last week in August 2014. We loved the fact that we could bring our 1-year-old dog with us. The main reason we stayed here was because it was pet friendly. The location of the motel is desirable. Although the motel was clean (we had an awesome housekeeper!), the rooms are not modern. The only complaint I have... More

I stayed 5 nights off-season (October 2014). Although well known for being one of the most pet-friendly hotels around, my experience was so good, I'd stay here even if traveling alone. I have already reserved 10 nights for October next year! I had the efficiency room with a kitchen. It was well equipped and clean. I wish I had known... More

This was the second time staying at here. The main reason we chose this place was because it was pet friendly. We thought the rates are awesome for a newly renovated place and for being pet friendly. Staff is very friendly and the room(s) were clean. The only complaints I have are about the wifi and the "bathroom" area for... More

This motel sits on Coastal Highway at 35th Street and is conveniently located near beach and restaurants. Guido Burrito and Barn 34 restaurants are within walking distance. Castle in the Sand hotel has $9.99 breakfast buffet and is 2 blocks away. The front office staff are friendly and efficient. The room was clean with no indication that animals had ever... More
