We had trouble finding a pet friendly hotel as we have 4 dogs. The room we got was very spacious and clean. We were on the 5Th floor which was a nice view right to the ocean, it was nice to have your own private balcony, sunrises were great! The staff at Barefoot Mailman were very courteous and helped us...

Yikes. I really expected a decent, clean room for my family considering the recent reviews. Carpet was sticky. Room reeked of bleach, cigarettes and mold. Bathroom was tiny and the ceiling covered in rust. Vents were grimy. Shower/tub at first appeared to be clean but I was hesitant to give my toddlers a bath in it when I got a...

I stayed here with my daughter (2 1/2) and mother for a girl's beach weekend. Our room was clean and spacious! The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. For a hotel that allows pets to stay, I didn't see any evidence that any animals had ever been in the room. I would definitely stay here again.

The last time I was in Ocean City, I stayed at the Castle in the Sand which I really liked.. I had called them to make reservations but they were full for the dates I was looking for...they referred me here and said it was their "sister property." I was hesitant because I don't really like change and considered trying...

This is the first time me and my family have stayed at the barefoot mailman.. It was absolutely wonderful. To know after a long day at the beach and boardwalk we were coming back to a clean and cozy room was very comforting. The barefoot mailman will definitely continue to be where we stay when we visit ocean city Maryland!

We really weren't expecting too much given the low price for the time of year and not too much notice. Just looking for clean and comfortable. It was very clean, way larger then we expected and the bed was wonderful. Some rooms were pet friendly and we thought maybe there would signs of dogs of the past..... however there was...

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.
