Reviewed July 22, 2012

Just left Barefoot Bay -stayed 2 nights. Karen was great to deal with. Room was clean and big for three people. We are already planning on staying a week there next year. The hotel is close to everything you want to do at Clearwater Beach. This is quaint little hotel. Eat at Frenchy's Seafood Co. just around the corner from resort.

This was by far the dirtiest place I have ever stayed. We were supposed to stay 5 nights but left after the first night. The room was not cleaned prior to our arrival. The shower had clumps of hair in it. The door would not lock properly and the sofa bed was extremely uncomfortabel. These were all things I tried to overlook until we saw the FECES on the toilet. This was unacceptable and then I knew that they did not clean this room at all. The next morning I went to the front desk to let them know I was checking out. Karen who was at the front desk was not at all apologetic. She only offered to then have someone clean it. She acted like this was not a big deal. I would never ever stay at this place. There are too many other nearby places to stay for the same price. You DO NOT want to stay here...TRUST ME. GROSS!

First I have to say when reading reviews remember there are some people you can never make happy. With that said, we literally just left 5 hours ago after a weeks stay at Barefoot Bay. Our entire week was absolutely wonderful. We had never been to Clearwater Beach but had been told to stay near Pier 60 because everything was within walking distance. When I started looking I found places where rooms were $180+ a night. Then I came across Barefoot Bay website. Looked great, but prices were cheap. At first thought I was afraid we were going to end up with what we paid for. After doing some reseach I booked our stay. Dave, the owner, was overly helpful during my many phone calls & emails. Since we are only 5 hours into our drive home & we are already planning our trip back to Barefoot Bay I feel it's needless to say we were VERY pleased with every aspect during our stay. I may also note that we meet a number of patrons staying during our stay that we're regulars to staying at Barefoot Bay. To me that speaks volumes about the place. Plus others that were newbies like us but were equally pleased. Thank you to the staff & owners atthe Barefoot Bay for making us feel right at home. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Room was relatively clean. The bathroom was not. Around the toilet was dirty and the shower grout was almost black. No soap dish in the shower to put your soap in and I certainly wasn't going to put it on the tile floor. The bathroom really needed a deep clean and some tiles were broken. The bed was nice and comfortable and the room was a little small but for a $100 dollars a night you can't beat it. The location was great. You can walk to anything along Clearwater beach. The staff was always friendly and helpful. You can rent wave runners and go deep sea fishing from right behind the motel. Parking is limited to one vehicle per room but they have metered parking that's free after 6 o'clock. With a little bit of cleaning and maintenance this could be a little quaint motel. Most "resorts" in the area go for $200 plus a night so you can't beat the price. I would stay again.

We returned from a week long stay at this little gem a couple of weeks ago. Love the BIG intimate feel of this small motel. Have absolutely no complaints whatsoever. Our standard queen room was so comfy and exceptionally clean! Yes, small, but who cares. Room is for sleeping and showering. The people caring for the place are so kind and friendly. Our minimal requests were granted immediately and with the service you'd expect from a much higher end facility. Had we paid attention to the negative posts on this site, we'd have missed out on a truly memorable place to stay. The location is perfect. Seemingly secluded in a hustle bustle area of the beach. Love it!!! We met so many very nice people from many parts of the world. Mostly, returning guests from years back. We plan on joining the many who make this an annual trip. Please don't hesitate to book your stay. I believe you'll enjoy.

We made a reservation for a two night stay in their apartment and were with our best friends. The room was a dump.....uneven and dirty floors - don't know when bedspreads were last washed - window ac's very loud -- you get the picture! Shared bath was old and in bad shape. Kitchenette not clean - dirty coffeepot. Tub dirty. We decided to try and at least make it through one night! Sometime during the evening the tub and toilet backed up and raw sewage was in the tub and the bathroom floor was totally wet. Went to the office the next morning and asked for a refund. Very unpleasant woman at the desk. No "Sorry for the inconvenience", etc. etc.and she was not about to return our payment for the second evening. We forced the issue (had pictures of the bathroom and unit and were thinking about calling the dept of Health) -- Eventually we did get a refund and we're very happy to leave this horrible place.

One of my co-workers booked a one night stay here as a suprise for her husband's birthday. His mother died unexpectedly and they had to fly to Oklahome. They didnt even ask for a refund of the one night stay but asked to reschedule for the following Friday instead. They said no. She offered to provide the death certificate. They said no. She told them her mother in law was being cremated and wanted her ashes in the ocean so maybe they could book reschedule a time when the hotel was slow to do that for her. They said no. Its Memorial Day weekend so you know they will resell the room and make double money off of this families tragedy. What a shame!
