We (husband, toddler, dog, and I) stayed here April 2-3. We liked the size of the room. It had a king size bed and a double bed. There was a vanity area, with a sink, next to the king bed, along with a microwave, mini refrigerator, flat screen TV, iron, and board. The carpeting, bed spreads, room curtains, and shower curtain looked new. The bathroom ceiling had some rust and a little mold. The chair cushions outside the room were stained, as well as the ironing board. There was other wear and tear throughout the room, but it was minimal and did not bother us. The hotel was at full capacity, but we didn’t hear a peep from our neighbors. Maybe good soundproofing or just some quiet people.
The motel is about a half mile walk to the end of the boardwalk. Then, it’s about a 2 mile walk to where Jolly Roger Amusement Park. So, if you’re planning to hoof it, just want to let you know what you are in for.
Now, for the”but… “part. I called the motel to cancel our reservation 72 hours before our stay because we weren’t certain about the weather. I spoke with Stephanie, the manager, and I told her about the cancellation. She said, per motel policy, cancellations must be made 2 weeks prior to stay in order to receive a refund. I told her according to my confirmation page, reservations can be cancelled 72 hours before hand, not 2 weeks. She then replied, in a snippy tone, “I don’t know where you are getting your information, but it’s 2 weeks, not 72 hours.” I just told her where I got the information, but I kept cool and repeated myself and she as well. She did not ask me to email her my confirmation page, but I took it upon myself after our call to send it to her. She called the next day and offered to honor the 72 hour window, which we declined.
We will not be returning to Barefoot Mailman because of my interaction with Stephanie. The motel, location, and check-in clerk were fine, but her attitude was not. If we had just exchanged pleasantries, I would feel different. I got a little taste of her managerial style and, at least in my case, it was “You are wrong unless you prove yourself right”.
We have been staying at the Barefoot Mailman for the last 5 years. We love it because we can take our two little shitzus. Last year our little Lilly got very sick from something she picked up on the boardwalk. We had to take her to the animal hospital where she had to spend a day. She got very sick overnight in the room and left quite a mess. We felt so bad, but the housekeeper said not to worry about it and they cleaned everything up. I felt so bad, but they could't have been any nicer. We will never forget their kindness. We are going twice this year. The people are so nice , and everyone is so friendly. It's nice to have a hotel that is pet friendly and reasonably priced. We love it there.

We loved the Motel, my dogs were happy, my kids were happy the staff is great I loved meeting all the other dogs and everyone is so nice.I wish they had internet access and that the porch balconies were enclosed and also if you plan on visiting book your room on the 4th or 5th floor to view the beautiful sunset over the bay
What a delightful surprise. We spent four days here and were delighted with the friendliness of all the staff, the cleanliness of the rooms and the great location (one block from the beach). We were able to take our dog and we met many others who brought their well behaved canine friends. The staff was great right from the reservation call to the folks who cleaned the room and others who we met around the facility. Highly recommend this hotel if you want to take your pet on a great vacation. I've already recommended to several friends. See you soon
We love staying at the barefoot mailman, the staff is incredibly nice, the guy at the front desk (steve maybe), makes us feel welcomed. the fact that i can bring my dogs is another reason why we love to stay
My wife and I have been going to the Barefoot Mailman for the past 7 years. The service is good and the management and employees are friendly and courteous.We enjoy our stays and so does our little Yorkie "Molly" who is always treated like a little princess.
I, as well as my wife and our Dog, Benjy, always stay at this wonderful motel several times when we go to Ocean City, Md. We enjoy this motel for it's friendliness, cleanliness, rates, location etc. This motel is like a second home for me, and the staff there is like family to us. Keep up the good work and continue what you people are doing. Don C. Schwartz
