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 it.



Beach is so close and outside shower by the pool was great for getting rid of sand. Pool area was well maintained and clean. Beds were very comfortable and housekeeping did a great job.

The only negative thing, as with all other motels that are on Coastal Hwy. is that's it's very noisy with cars, motorcycles and buses. Others may not have a problem with that, but we are light sleepers and had trouble falling asleep.

Room Tip: Upper floors have better view over the buildings to see the bay.

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 the Taj Mahal, as you will see from the reasonable prices, but well worth the price. Would definitely recommend to my friends and look forward to returning soon.

Excellent place to stay the gentleman at the front desk was extremely polite and helpful. He met our every need. My husband and I will be visiting the same motel on our next visit as long as Kevin the front desk gentleman is there.

Room Tip: Motel is in the middle of Ocean city, a short walk to the boardwalk.

The room was comfortable, if a little outdated. Our room was clean. The location is good for Ocean City, however we could not access the beach because of beach erosion construction. The room is NOT cleaned if you have a dog. We were not aware of that, and when I asked the man at the front desk, he got a little snippy with me. I had not been made aware when I checked in and would have advised that we would be out all day so they could clean. All I really wanted was the bed made and some fresh towels which they did bring after I discussed it with the desk clerk.
