Our family stayed here for a quick family getaway to visit the nearby Clearwater Marine Aquarium. (2 adults and 2 young children) It has been a few months since our stay. I meant to review right away, but.....life happened! We booked a room with a view of the bay, it was right above the check-on office, so it was very... More

If you are looking for a big hotel chain do not stop here. But if you want the west coast Florida Beach feel this is your place. It has a warmth to it that is worth staying. - Beautiful copper sunsets just a five minute walk down the beach - The staff are very helpful with any requests - small... More

Stayed with my husband in Nov 2014 for two nights. Barefoot Bay is a nice and cozy little place in a very good location. Both the beach and the strip with shops and restaurants are in a short walking distance (5-10 minutes). The room we got was clean, with new carpet and comfortable bed. The staff in reception is friendly... More

Stayed there for a triathlon on the beach. The staff was so nice. The room was plain but very clean. They showed us a water view room when we checked out and we would def stay there on a future visit. Flexible with late checkout due to race. Perfect location. Going back!

We arrived very late at the motel and our information was taped to the front door, which was great, we did not realise that reception was only 8 am until 8 pm. The room was small, clean and had everything we needed including a fridge and microwave. When we went to register the morning after we arrived the staff were... More

I booked this motel in order for my husband to attend a convention at the Hilton (which had no available rooms). It was clean, comfortable, quiet, with a great view of the bay! We are always apprehensive about staying in a hotel or motel that is not a chain or big corporation, but this place changed our minds! The staff... More

This is more of a motel than a hotel or resort. It was clean and comfortable although our particular room #16 was small. The staff were friendly and helpful. The location is perfect for walking around Clearwater Beach. We took advantage of the trip advisor discount and saved 20% which made this place an even better deal. If you are... More

Another wonderful stay at the Barefoot Bay Resort. 5 of us stayed in the back apartment that has a queen bedroom, a (2) double bedroom and a living room with (2) nice pull out couches. The back door of the apartment goes out onto a beautiful deck with views of the bay. Great for early morning sun rises, afternoon sun... More
