My family of three stayed for 4 days. The room was great, clean, and we loved the kitchenette. The hotel was quiet for the most part. Great ocean view. The only drawback was that the wheelchair accessible room was not that accessible. The roll in shower was very narrow and the water flowed down into the rest of the bathroom...

Barefoot beach hotel was a great place to stay! It was very clean, great space, and perfect location. Right on the beach just a couple blocks from johns pass. There were hammocks poolside and tables beachside. We will be definitely coming back!

This is the second year we have stayed in an ocean front room. The hotel has direct access to the beach (not just a path) located on a more residential than commercial area of Gulf Blvd. The rooms are nothing fancy, but modern and very clean. We were there during the seafood festival and the attendants made sure we had...

Nice smallish, modern, and quite clean place right on the beach. Had a little kitchenette. Easy walk to John's Pass Boardwalk and other eateries. Only buts - our sofa was grungy and strangely the toilet paper rolls stank, can't imagine why.

Great place to stay for the price, clean and comfortable. Love the location to John's Pass with all the shops and awesome places to eat! Just steps away from soft white sands. Easy parking. Check in was very quick and easy. I almost forgot, I loved the laundry room, great place to hang! There's a tv in there, ice machine,...

My sister and our husbands just stayed here for a week. We had the 2-bedroom suite facing the ocean and it was beautiful. Room was clean, well stocked and the view was to die for. We visited Johns Pass and I think we ate at almost every restaurant there. The weather couldn't have been any nicer and the people at...

We got just one night to stay over while we attended the Johns Pass Seafood festival but we will definitely be back! Not a posh resort but clean, really good sized rooms with sitting area and mini kitchen. Had a poolside room which actually had a partial Gulf view so that was an added benefit. Walk right out the back...

We fell in love with the Barefoot Beach Resort a few years ago. Quiet yet fully functional suite with a nice pool. The best part is the white sand private beach. We are lucky enough to be back this year for a couple of days. I recommend to all. Very relaxing stay.

Not the newest hotel but got the 5 rating because of the total experience. Our goal was to find a nice place with a beach view at a reasonable rate. This was exactly what we were looking for. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Studio apartment on top floor faced the beach with fantastic balcony views of sunrise and sunset....

The hotel is pretty dated,but is pretty clean. The picture of the pool is a bit deceiving-smaller than expected,and not ocean front. No maids clean during your stay,they supply a basket to place your dirty towels in and instruct you to place them in the hallway before 9:30 am in order to get clean ones. On the upside,the view of...
