We were in town for 3 nights and loved the Barefoot Mailman! It is, as others have noted, an older motel but it's been updated and the location was perfect. We were in an efficiency room with just one bed - it was very comfortable and clean; along with the fridge and microwave, they supplied a set of dishes and...

Thank you so much for your kind review of the Barefoot Mailman Motel. It was a pleasure having you here and I love your photographs especially of the fountain and the new landscaping in front of the Family Traveler Rooms. We think of this like our home and you and others as guests in our home. We try just a...

Thank you for your kind review. I particularly enjoyed our "coffee talks" each morning. The central location in Lantana and the closeness to the Intracoastal and Atlantic Ocean does afford our guests a unique opportunity to walk to many quality restaurants featuring a virtual cornucopia of cuisines. Easy access to the bus system, Tri-Rail and airports does allow many of...

A very impressive presentation for the price. Management staff is very accommodating, personable and helpful. They allowed us to check in early and asked if we needed additional amenities such as a hair dryer or ironing board. This motel is older but so well appointed and maintained. Rooms are extremely clean with refrigerator, microwave, WiFi and even USB charging ports....

We are a small, 18 unit motel and often we don't have one consecutive room available for the dates someone is trying to reserve especially in season when we are full or mostly full every night. Most people are able to figure out on their own that when it shows a room available yet they are unable to book for...

I booked this hotel based on previous reviews. It is a charming place with beautifully kept grounds and a large outdoor seating area with tables, chairs, lounges and even a charcoal grill. I was a bit nervous when you have to register with the person behind a glass window. Not sure what that was about but did not see anything...

Thank you for your review. The glass window is only a precaution as the Night Manager's quarters are on the other side of that window. Overall, Lantana and this area in particular are among the safest areas in Palm Beach county. The train noise is just a fact of life along the coast of Eastern Florida and there is no...

I recently stayed at The Barefoot Mailman Motel for two nights, needing to be in the area for work-related stuff. Should you stay here? If you want luxury..no. If you want a resort...no. But, if you want a clean, small, very budget motel in an excellent location for a very nice stay..yes. Now, there is the issue of the train:...

The Barefoot Mailman Motel stands out with its sweet little garden area complete with bird feeders. It is an attractive little spot on the Dixie Highway, but by being on the Dixie Highway it is not for anybody who can't take traffic noise or train whistles. The train is LOUD! I am not saying don't stay, just don't stay if...

Last week was the second time staying here. It reminds me of the old motor inns. The room was clean and I was lucky it was ready earlier than check-in. There's a common area lanai with coffee pot, microwave, and purified water fountain. There's an adjoining outdoor common area for grilling. Walgreen's is one block away. I travel with earplugs...

I just wanna start off by saying the staff here Paul and his Co owner they should not be in the hotel/motel industry!! Me and my wife needed a month or two until we were to close on our home and then move in. Well after a month of saving them time in money for not having to use housekeeping...

So much vitriol from a couple who chronically paid their nightly room rental over a two month period late by up to three nights at a time. On January 4th after 15 times of being late on rent over a two month period they were given a warning that all nightly rentals had to be paid by 11:00am that day...

Quiet, inexpensive, cute, clean. With cancelled reservations from a hotel nearby, we happened upon The Barefoot Mailman. (There's really a story behind the name.) It's not the Ritz Carlton, but its charming and they have blackout blinds. Beautiful local plants and a quiet place to chill on the patio. We'll go again.
