Value for price is very good. But overall experience was excellent. The employees were all extremely friendly. Loved the fact that the public fishing bridge was so close. And the Bait House next to it was awesome.

We made a reservation for July 3, 4 & 5 on the phone Sunday April 6 at approximately 1pm with our credit card. We were notified by our family that we are expected in Orlando those dates, so we needed to cancel the reservation - less than 24 hours old. The nice lady said there is a $25.00 cancellation fee....

We've stayed at multiple "family-owned" style accommodations in Clearwater over the years, but this one takes the cake. Stacy, Dave, Matt & Travis all made us feel very at home, going out of their way to really get to know their guests. Everyone is considered family here. The rooms are a comfortable size & clean. We worried about a "fishy"... More

We actually loved the place, but we had come into Clearwater for a fishing tournament, we asked if they had boat parking, and they said yes, well, they had boat docking, but better bring your ladder. The docks had a good two foot drop from the dock to the boat. We ended up paying the next motel over $40 to... More

Traveled from Philly and stayed for 6 days and was very happy with the cleanliness. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Very ideal location for Clearwater Beach. Close to beach, restaurants, and night life. Waterfront location. Great and convenient parking. A must revisit for next year.

This was our 1st visit to Clearwater Beach and Barefoot Bay Resort and Marina. The location is PERFECT! Just a short (really short) walk to the Beach, Pier, Shops and Restaurants. The staff was extremely friendly, Very helpful with tips on the area. Even let us use a fishing rod so our son could fish. He caught black grouper, pinfish... More

I have stayed at the Barefoot Bay Resort for the past 9 years for my winter volleyball on the beach get-away. The location is excellent, the rooms are very clean and the staff is always friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend this resort.

My sister recently needed a room. Here from Arizona due to our fathers severe condition in a local hospital. Checked in at this place, but on weekend they suddenly didn't have a room for her. She had to move out and find another. A room was available for her Sunday night. She chose to let it go. They double booked... More

It is always very disappointing to receive negative reviews, in this instance from a person who was not a guest! I would like to provide the correct details to compare against the stated events. Firstly we never double book rooms, this guest was advised at the time of making the reservation that Saturday night was not available, however if it... More

Unfortunately we were only here for our last night of our vacation but it was thoroughly enjoyable. The two members of staff that we dealt with were extremely helpful and very pleasant. The room was very large with 2 big beds (one was a bit squeaky) and a view over the bay. The only thing that I could not find... More

Everything about Crabby Bill's is average. The prices are not bad for a place in the middle of Clearwater Beach. The service can be pleasant, the food is sometimes acceptable, sometimes, not so much. A crab cake was much more cake than crab. There was nothing vile about it, just a lot less crab than usual. An appetizer of boneless... More
