Happened upon this hotel while driving up the coastline and decided to give it a shot. The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and tidy, if a bit spartan, and the view of the gulf was great. One odd thing was that housekeeping was not available and if you needed clean sheets or towels they would leave... More

I spent a week at Barefoot Beach Hotel in a poolside studio. I enjoyed the visit immensely! I liked the way they replaced towels and supplies by having you put the used towels in a basket outside your door each morning and had a checklist you could indicate when you needed items like soap or toilet tissue. Great idea! The... More

High rate paid, for ocean view, just because I got late check-in, I got pool side view.....they even don't have representative for late check in, just left the keys on envelope at box. Next day I request my ocean view room, they don't care about you if you get your reservation with third party.... They don't change us because they... More

I booked this hotel sight unseen so I had my worries. I guess I did not have to. The gulf view is deautiful and you could watch dolphins swimming by. The location was great and walking distance to St. johns Pass where there was food, shopping, jet skis, parasailing and more. The room was very comfortable and clean. The grounds... More

We enjoyed a great week here. Friendly check in. The room was clean, we loved a fridge and microwave. The view of the ocean balcony was gorgeous! The pool was small, but adequate. The beach was powdery and well maintained in front of the hotel. You can easily walk to John's Pass and other dining establishments. HINT: we LOVED "grouper... More

We tried for weeks to find a getaway spot that had an opening for a 9 day stay and stumbled across this hotel. Never knowing how things are going to look until you get there, this is a gem. Low key, casual, spot with the friendly BBQ'ing manager that's always puttering around making sure the Hotel and guest are looked... More

We stayed here for 4 nights to recharge the batteries and to chill out after being recommended this was a quiet peaceful hotel after a hectic several days in Orlando. Firstly I booked this accommodation by phone direct with the hotel for a gulf view studio suite in October 2013 and requested a top floor quiet room, although not guaranteed... More

This was our first time staying. The room was nice clean updated. It was nice that the pool was heated and right on the beach. Beware though.... No housekeeping. You are responsible for all of your trash. Make your own bed. If you want clean sheets/towels/shampoo etc you have to leave a basket outside your door w a list of... More

Our poolside suite feels more like a little apartment then a hotel room. Very cozy and comfortable although a bit noisy. We can hear doors closing and voices from other rooms. It is spring break and the hotel is full so that could be adding to the noise. It would be better if the tv was closer to the bed,... More

We rented a two bedroom suite overlooking the gulf. Although an older hotel, it has been recently painted and is kept very clean. The furniture and beds were comfortable. The pool area and vegetation are kept up and are very attractive. The access to the beach, surrounding shopping and restaurants are great! The office staff was polite and helpful. The... More
