“Basic but clean :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

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..

This motel all depends on what you are looking for...

If you are looking for a hotel w/spa amenities, you will not find this here....

This is a nice little motel that offers clean rooms, decent ammenities, a friendly staff and great rates. I really like the location, but I really didn't get to do that much because I am here for training.

My room is exceptionally large but I believe it is the family economy room which is two queen beds with a sitting area and small kitchen.

I arrived alone and later in the evening for my check-in. The owner and his sidekick greeted me, checked me in and told me to come to them with any questions or needs. I have not seen them since, I've had no reason too.

Every day I arrive home from class with a clean room. I have no complaints what-so-ever and will definitely look them up when returning to this area.

Room Tip: Just get the largest room....it is cheap enough.

My stay was for three days. Manager was very nice and attentive. The room was clean and confy. Good wireless and tv reception. The motel has a little kitchen area for all guests with microwave, ice machine and fridge. Very nice and quiet setting. There is the occasional train passing by but I didn't mind. Highly Recommended for any road warrior.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

In an area where you can easily pay over 100 dollars per night, this small quaint motel has personalized service. Its much like a hostel, except you get your own room. I paid less than half of the other places, and I had a desk, my own bathroom, cable tv, wifi. There is a shared outdoor covered patio with coffee and filtered water, microwave & fridge. My room was freshly painted and cleaned very well each day. If you want more than they offer here, you will have to pay more than twice as much per night anywhere else. They have good "quality of life" rules too, such as no drinking outside your room, no smoking in the rooms, and visitors are not allowed to loiter or knock on doors after 10pm.

Room Tip: What you see on the internet is what you actually get. Preregister on their website and you will see...
