My husband and I needed to stay one night in the Lantana/Boynton Beach area. The last time in the area we were in a major chain at $150.00 a night. This time I did more research and found The Barefoot Mailman motel. This will be our place to stay whenever we are in the area! Everything was very, very clean;... More

There are a few minor maintenance issues with the rooms, bit everything worked and the price is unbeatable. We spent two nights here and really enjoyed it. We walked to nearby restaurants and to the beach and relaxed on the deck area at night. If little things like an occasional train or a loose door knob will ruin your day,... More

Small motel. Old, unique. Grounds immaculate. Attractively landscaped with shrubs, painted walks, and statuary. Central common area outdoors where coffee is served in the morning. No breakfast. Spacious room. Fridge, microwave, but no coffee maker. Very noisy A/C. Just turn it off if possible. There seems to be no heat, so don't stay on a cold night. Old. Things are... More

Pros: very clean, well-maintained, pleasant decor. Room had ceramic floors, okay with me. Cons: very narrow bathroom, claustrophobic, Room lighting dark. Window blind cord broken. No continental breakfast, only coffee. To check in you have to deal with the manager through a high security window and mail slot, no matter what time of day. Made me wonder about the security...

Was in the area looking for some commercial areas. I was pleasantly suprised to run across this motel. The landscaping was immaculate and the rooms were very clean. A hidden gem. Will be staying there again.

Place is quaint but not bad location or value. Old time Florida feel before everyone got so spoiled. Not bad for a weekend get away . People who run it are nice. I have stayed there multiple times. Good sleeping. Good tv. Good ac. Bathrooms really small.

Very friendly and helpful management and staff, good location, very clean room. Solid and honest service that keeps your budget in tact. I recommend this place to anyone looking for affordable and trustworthy place to stay in south Florida. Thank you, Paul and Bill, for an excellent stay I had in March.

Stayed here for a week and couldn't have been more pleased. Basic, yes, but CLEAN and quiet, with friendly and competent staff. After spending 6 days driving across the country and staying in questionable motels, this place was a welcome breath of fresh air. The grounds are well-maintained, the manager Paul brews a delicious pot of coffee, and the internet... More

This is an old Florida style hotel. Don't expect the Ritz, but it is very clean, has a nice outdoor deck and the staff are all very helpful and friendly. Prices were SO much cheaper than any of the chains hotels we looked at. Do be warned that the trains go by at least 3 times in the middle of... More

This is a superclean, super friendly little motel, which is ran RIGHT. The location is very convenient and you'll be anywhere in Palm Beach County with ease. Plus, you'll have several restaurants within walking distance, offering anything from seafood to Mexican cuisine to waterfront dining. We only spent a few nights, but I would recommend the Barefoot Mailman to anybody... More
