Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was the third time that I've stayed here. Once in 2012, then 2014, and this last time in 2017. Since 2014, the interior has been repainted and each room now has a hairdryer. It is very quaint and, in my opinion and that of my friend's, it is much preferred to stay in a motel/resort like this rather than...

Took my 7 year old daughter for a long weekend. This was the perfect place to stay. Walking distance to the marina area, the beach, shopping and restaurants. Not too beachy, but very convenient to have a Walgreens next door since we didn't have a car. They had a small grocery section too. Pool was small and a little chilly,...

My husband and I recently stayed here and had a wonderful time! The staff are incredibly warm and welcoming. The rooms are fairly basic, but clean and comfortable. And the location is ideal! You are within walking distance to all the restaurants/shops and the beach is only a few minutes walk as well. Would definitely stay again!

I am a returning guest that has stayed with Barefoot Bay multiple times over the past 12 years. Good to see the new sun chairs and spruced up paint. Only thing lacking was the pool heater was not on after a cool snap and the water was brrrr-isk.

We found the ideal spot to enjoy Clearwater Beach at Barefoot Bay. Its cozy, close to everything, immaculate, old enough to be comfortable and new enough to be convenient. Staff ends up feeling like family by the end of your stay - The best deal on the beach - Reasonable rates - Just a comfortable enjoyable get away close to...

This is a great location, for convenience to local restaurants, shops, and activities. Also less than a 5-minute walk to the park and beach. The rooms were clean, and plenty of space for a couple. Next door is a 24-hour Walgreen's, which we visited many times over the weekend.

Really enjoyed our stay here. It's a charming quaint motel, nicely decorated with a beachy vibe with nice views of the town and a great deck overlooking the marina...we saw dolphins in the marina several times throughout our stay. Short walking distance to all the happenings, restaurants, bars, shopping and the beach is less than a block away. Free beach...

Resort is more like a motel but clean and nicely decorated. Older property but painted and furnishings newer. Deck over water also nice and appears newer. Pool is nice but right next to parking lot. Not really a problem. Location is central and good walking distance to everything in Clearwater and the resort is right next to the causeway...we did...
