The rooms were super clean. Considering this is a animal friendly motel, there were no animal hairs anywhere. The maids were very nice and always willing to vacuum or give extra towels. The elevator was pretty slow, so we took the stairs most of the time. The pool was not very big, but it was always clean and I still...

This is our second you're staying at barefoot mailman, and we Love the dog friendly rooms and location. We ecently had a last-minute change in schedule, and they bent over backwards to free up a room to accommodate our change. It was refreshing to work with a small private run hotel that takes personal interest in their customers.

We picked this place because of being pet friendly and a reasonable price. When we arrived at the motel, our room had a king size bed and a double bed. The room was spacious and clean. The maid service was excellent also. Our dogs were sick so we did not bring them, but I am sure they would have enjoyed...

We love coming here because it's fairly quiet, pet friendly, and the people are very nice. Rooms are clean and a pretty good size. Plenty of restaurants and activities are near by. Boardwalk is about 4 blocks away, where you catch a tram down the boards. Love it here!

We recently stayed at The Barefoot Mailman Motel. My boyfriend found this place as a last minute find that was pet friendly. I loved staying here. It was quiet, the rooms were great size, and each room had it's own patio to sit at. We didn't utilize the pool, but looked like it was nice. The staff were very friendly...

This is a great hotel! We love everything from the room to the dog area! Yes this hotel is dog friendly,and even has a nice grass area for the pups! If your family includes fur babies you have to try the barefoot mailman. A great value in ocean city! We go back year after year.

We just returned from spending 3 days at the Barefoot Mailman. The staff are very friendly and the Manager, Gail Swartz goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable. Since our last stay they made many improvements and added a small grassy dog area. It is in a good location and has a beautiful view of the bay....

Although I haven't had my Stay yet, my reservation experience is well worth a review.... I spoke with Gail, the manager, to get rates, and book a room for me and 2 dogs. They were almost full. Gail went over and above, and made a call, in order to guarantee my entire stay would be in the same room, and...

This was our third visit in three years, coming in the spring while dogs are allowed on the beach and boardwalk. Each year we take three rooms for our adult children, their dogs and ourselves. Very pleased with the accommodations. Always very clean, the housekeeping staff is better that those we have found in much more expensive hotels during our...
