The only Luxury Pet Hotel in Ocean City Md.

The Dogtel Hotel is Ocean City’s premier pet boarding facility, offering your pet a home away from home in a safe, private wooded setting.

2 Dogs in a Dog Suite

There are not many hotels that allow dogs in Ocean City but that doesn’t mean you have to leave your friend at home. We specialize in dog boarding and cat boarding, but we also take birds and other pets. We are not just boarding pets, we are a dog hotel providing luxury pet boarding and will make your pet so comfortable they will want to come back again and again!

We celebrated our 10th anniversary in 2011 and have welcomed over 12,000 dogs and 500 cats since we opened our doggy doors in 2001!

At the Dogtel Hotel, we not only care about your pet's safety but also for their total care and well being. We are PCSA certified and closely follow the PCSA code of ethics and bill of rights.

We can also recommend some great dog beaches, ideal for taking your dog on a day trip. Just because there are not many pet friendly motels or hotels in Ocean City doesn’t mean your pet has to miss out on the family vacation!

Pet and Dog Day Care

For locals of the Ocean City area, we also provide a loving environment for your pet while you are working or traveling! Your dog will have their own space, run and play outside and get the attention and socialization they need. After all, we’re not only professional pet sitters - we are animal lovers too!

Dog Suites, Dog Runs, and Kitty City

We know that boarding a dog can be stressful, but we want to make sure that your experience with us is a breeze. We consider your dog or cat part of our family while they are staying with us and will make sure all their needs are attended to.

All of our dog suites and runs have access to the outside and all dogs receive several playtimes per day. Plus, with separate outdoor play areas we are able to pair dogs that play nicely together.

There are no other dog hotels like the Dogtel Hotel. Call us at 877-364-8351 to book a suite today!
