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

We needed a motel to stay in Ocean City for a few days that allowed us to bring our small dog and Mailman had the best reviews of the dog friendly places. We stayed 3 nights and found the accomodations to be quite acceptable for the price. The room was clean, with a larger fridge than most, and a microwave... More

I thoroughly read reviews on multiple sites before we stay anywhere new, but made the mistake of just trusting the trip advisor ratings for this visit. We were vacationing with our small dog in VA and wanted to stop over in OC a night before returning home. I despise old run down motels, but again I trusted the reviewers here.... More

We have been staying at the Barefoot Mailman for over 6 years. The rooms are clean and the people are exceptionally friendly. Our dog has been with us for the 6 years and he enjoys his vacation also. The front desk personnel are very friendly and all the other staff are super helpful. It is close to many restaurants within... More

My wife and I had a great experience this weekend. The room had a king bed and was very clean but the carpet was tore up by the kitchen . Very pet friendly and in a great location, a half a block from the beach. The only negative thing I can say is they had two old toilets just sitting... More

Traveling with a pet immediately lowers the number of hotels to stay at while on vacation. Our family was excited to find a hotel in Ocean City, MD that accepted pets. Another important feature that our family looks for in a hotel is having wifi available. We thought we were all set! Free wifi is advertised but DOES NOT work... More
