The hotel was very nice. Suited our needs and was close to everything since it is right on the main road through Ocean City. Convenient parking and surrounded by places to eat within walking distance.

If it wasn't for the REALLY nasty carpeting, I would give this hotel a better review. It was barely tolerable as the smell made us both nauseous. I get that the floors are not going to be perfect at a pet friendly motel. But, ewwwww our room had large, nasty brown stains and of course the smell was awful. A... More

We love coming here. Once we became pet owners we were looking for that "special" place to stay. For at least the past 9 years, we have visited every fall and spring with our dog. Barefoot Mailman is very clean and comfortable. The staff (people at desk plus the people who keep our rooms clean) are so helpful and friendly.... More

The staff at this hotel are great. They're helpful and friendly. The hotel is only one block from the beach. The rooms are sufficient and include kitchenette area. The price is fair and they don't gouge you to get more money for bringing a dog. They do all they can to make it an easy and stress free place to... More

We stayed for two nights. Granted not too many motels accept a little puppy. However, "DO NOT BOOK throughly Bookings.com. They totally suck. In defense to the motel host and the establishment. Bookings.com set as an ocean view room. Oops! There's no ocean. It's blocked by another hotel. Finally, it was kinda weird getting a key. Yes it's out dated.... More

This place has just what you need for two people with a dog, nothing fancy but it is close to the beach, very clean, nice little pool and no rowdy fools keeping everyone up, we have stayed here 3 times and have enjoyed it every time, plenty of parking close to just about everything.

This was our first visit to the Barefoot Mailman. Originally we were bringing our dog which is why we decided to stay. instead we left the dog home. We were impressed that the room didn't smell of dogs. The room was a bit worn with a few water stains on the walls and ceiling but clean. Although the housekeeper forgot... More

This hotel is way overpriced... When we got into our room, the middle of the floor was soak and wet. Did the cleaning staff spill a bucket of water? Did a big dog take a pee in the middle of the floor before the previous occupants checked out? I wasn't about to get on the floor and smell to find... More
