“$50 super value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

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.

Room Tip: Book your room well in advance as this is the place to go thus very busy.

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 is strong and free. The train that goes by across the street can be loud, but we were literally steps away from the water and lots of cute restaurants and cafes. In this price range the service/cleanliness can be lacking, but this was by far the best value for our money of the entire trip.

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 the night and they are loud! A good pair of earplugs help considerably. All in all, a great place to stay for the money.

Room Tip: Further back, away from the train tracks!

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 who is looking for a good place to stay.
Thank You, Paul and Bill, for making our brief stay very comfortable!

Room Tip: If you're looking for a value priced and clean place, any room will satisfy your needs.

We were recently in Lantana Florida on business and needed acomodations for several crew members for several weeks, the motel managers Bill and Paul are great people who took great care of us. the motel was very clean, quiet and no kind of riff raff going on, and when you travel as much as we do this is a very rare commodity.we would certainly recommend this motel to anyone and if given the opportunity to go back we surely would.

Room Tip: all rooms are good.no pool sorry it wouldn't let me take it back..
