This place is unbelievable. I was a little leery to book such an old property. Was I ever glad I did. This place is a retro motel, but it is much more than a motel. Yes, it has outdoor entry, but that's where the motel ends. This property has been updated, but without losing its charm. The property is small,... More

A+ Rating/ Usually I don't review a hotel until the end of the stay. The hotel is updated, but not over the top. It feels like your part ownship feeling. The rooms have a beaches feeling and your on the beach. Convenient location to the famous John Pass Village & gulf of Mexico beaches. (Wow) King size bed and small... More

Three of us ladies just happened upon this place. I happened upon the phone number and called to check on availability for the night. The person that answered the phone was so polite and cheerful I couldn't say no... We pulled in, signed in, and didn't want to leave the next morning! This is such a quaint place. Very quiet,...

This is our third stay in the Barefoot Beach Hotel. Spotlessly clean rooms, friendly staff, nice pool, step right onto the pristine beach with a very short walk to the beach. Fantastic views of the sea. We saw dolphins swimming in the sea while we were sitting on our balcony. Close to the amenities of St Johns Pass. We will... More

Stayed here twice now and it's a fantastic place to stay. Right on the beach only steps away. Rooms were very clean and staff were great. It's only about a 2 min walk over to Johs pass where there are some lovely restaurants,bars and shops.

We were booked in at the Barefoot Beach Hotel for a week in late August 2016, actually more of an apartment rental than a hotel (no room service/daily housekeeping). We arrived late afternoon and first impressions were not great: The outside felt tired and not quite what we were expecting (although I’ve no idea what I was expecting) so that’s... More

It was just as advertised. Clean. We managed to get beachfront on very short notice. The office staff was amazing. Very close to John's Pass and plenty of restaurants. My single complaint was the mattress-it was hard and squeaky. We both have bad backs and I'm pregnant and this made for 2 bad night's sleep.

Stephanie M, Thank you for staying with us and for your review. We do appreciate the feedback. Our beds are a medium firmness. It's very hard to find a mattress that works for everyone as mattress preferences are very personal. Please let us know if you're ever returning to the area as we would love to have you stay with...

My wife and I booked a room for 3 nights for a mini vacation with our 8 month old daughter. The hotel was located in walking distance to the boardwalk and was also perfectly on the beach. The hotel itself is a bit older, but the room was nice and the staff was very friendly. Our only complaint was that... More

The hotel the small beach front hotel, Oceanside room are great with outstanding views, The hotel does not offer room service, but a rather novel idea of leaving your dirty towels and a list of your room requirements outside your room which is replenished daily. Using this method it leaves the guest the task of keeping their accommodation tidy, the... More
