“Our new #1 Clearwater hotel!”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

We have stayed at several Clearwater hotels over the years and this was our first time at the Barefoot Bay. But it is now our new #1 place to stay! We loved it - it is so cute and cozy, really inviting, with it's wooden pool decking and railings and palms etc. Apart from a couple of upstairs rooms (which have great views of the bay) all the rooms are on ground level set around the pool area. Our room was clean, comfy and nicely decorated and equipped with a fridge, microwave, toaster etc. you can ignore the comments in the previous reviews about the beds - our bed was brand new and very comfortable. I was told that all the rooms now have been upgraded with new beds. This is a family owned hotel and it shows - the staff are great, really friendly and very helpful. The hotel is in the perfect location for all Clearwater's amenities, being close to the marina just across the street from Pier 60 and within close walking distance of all the shops and restaurants. All in all, a great place to stay. We will be coming back again in September.

Room Tip: You cannot chose a bad room, if you want to be close to the pool ask for a ground floor room, or if...

The room I had was small but very nicely decorated and convenient. The wooden deck around the pool with multiple levels was really landscaped well and cozy. Right next door we discovered a Walgreens that had everything one could possibly need if they wanted to dine in the room! Short walk to beach area and restaurants. The additional wooden patio on back of hotel overlooking marina was a great place to watch the sun rise! Very nice staff. I will recommend to my friends and encourage them going. For the price it cannot be beat:)

Room Tip: Rooms 5 and 22 have a small step to get to them. Whole place was very easy for us to get around even...

We stayed at this hotel over the Easter weekend. The room itself was ok and the view over the bay was nice. The air conditioning unit was incredibly loud, we mentioned this to the guy on reception, he said he would check it out, however nothing changed and he did not mention it again.
His whole attitude appeared to be take it or leave it!
The Wifi in the room was non existent, it worked for about 10minutes in the whole time we were there.
The room was not cleaned the whole time we were there, even though we put the sign up to have it cleaned.
We would not recommend this hotel.

Very bad smells in a number of the rooms. We saw quite a few giant cockroaches running all around the place, including the bathroom, under the bed, and by the pool. The staff was rude and very standoffish.

Super clean, awesome little hotel! The staff were awesome and nice! Travis went above and beyond to provide us with a great experience. Love this place! Felt like we were in a cozy little condo instead of a hotel. The mattresses could be softer but that wouldn't prevent us from going back! Short walk to everything. Overall, best hotel I've ever stayed in with a great price.

Enjoyed staying at this hotel and would not hesitate to visit again. The location is great, you can easily walk to the beach and a number of restaurants, bars and stores within 5 minutes. The 24 hour Walgreens next door is very convenient as well (brand new and has a full beer, wine, and liquor section). Our room (#16) was a standard queen and was quite small but I was prepared for that going in so I was not suprised or dissapointed. I liked that the room had a refrigerator, microwave, and a large closet to store all of our stuff. The room was clean and I did not notice any odor whatsoever like some other reviewers have noted. I also did not see a single bug. The staff was all very friendly and was always quick to ask if there was anything we needed. My only complaints would be that the A/C could have been a bit colder and the bed was pretty hard and the pillows were flat. Overall I think Barefoot Bay is a great value. Can't wait to visit again!

We loved the location of this hotel, and the staff were very friendly, but our experience was not very good. The bathroom smelled strongly of urine. The bed was unacceptable. It had some sort of plastic wrap under the sheets, which would wake us up throughout the night every time one of us moved. The bed was horrible and had no support. I did like that there was a refrigerator and a little kitchenette, but not enough to warrant staying there again. This hotel experience would have been MUCH more positive if there were comfortable beds and a clean bathroom. Why have plastic underneath? We aren't toddlers who are potty training? Comfortable beds are very important and I would suggest investing in something better to round out your wonderful location and staff friendliness. I wish I could say we would stay here again.
