This was one of our first stops on a kayak tour and we were happy to have found this gem. There is a dock out front that we were able to securely tie up to for a few nights while a rainy cold front passed through. Our "pirate-themed room" fit us perfectly. Some reviewers commented on the decorations/lack of space... More

This was not a planned stop, it was getting late, we were hungry and ready to rest. Found on trip advisor, called, and was helped by a very friendly person. Arrived and checked in at the restaurant, the food smelled great. We were given a choice of theme rooms and chose the New Orleans, Mardi Gras. The room was small,... More

When you come into this motor lodge with the prior experience and appropriate expectations, it's easy to appreciate this place. For us it was a colorful respite from the chain hotels on our long trip. It was our 14th room since starting a 60 day biking trip to Key West. This is a uniquely situated inn that is a very... More

It was a pleasure to stay at Barry's! The atmosphere was great...the room wonderful! We spent a lot of time sitting on the decking outside our room, listening to the quiet. We could not have asked for more...I am so glad this is one of those quaint establishments off the beaten path...

Our family of three stayed comfortable, not a five star, but clean enough for us to lay our heads!! Dinner was awesome, view was incredible, staff was friendly!!! Not to bad off the beaten path and very economical. It was kind of dark in the room and the broken shade in the bathroom made it difficult to use with the... More

My daughter and I made this reservation thinking we would give it a one night chance. If we were not satisfied, we could travel on down the road. We had a wonderful experience!! This is a quaint bungalow like motel. It is off of the beaten trek and quite the surprise. Each room is decorated in a different theme. We... More
