Deaf will be back over and over again, awesome view. Grate location and area. Pleasant staff and my girlfriend loved the room, overall we couldn't be happier. Next time we will bring the boys, this was just a one night getaway.

When I booked this reservation, I wasn't sure how it would go. It was a very pleasant surprise! The staff in the office were friendly and helpful. The building is not your typical hotel, but rather a building on stilts, right on the beach! The view from our second floor studio was amazing. The little galley was well equipped with...

Terrible room. Water damage in front bedroom, walls and floor. Staff indifferent. Original review approved and posted then gone in a matter of days. We live in Florida and this was a nice get away to the beach with out of town family. Beach was great but would never stay at this hotel again! Didn't expect much for the price...

Contacted TripAdvisor about the integrity of the 1st review that was left. TripAdvisor looked into the 1st review and removed it. TripAdvisor refuses to remove the second one. We believe this review to be left by a disgruntled former maintenance technician.

The location could not be better. We had a beachfront room with a small kitchenette. There is an elevator, and plenty of room for guests to park which is often missing at the beach. It is within walking distance of John's Pass which has restaurants, shopping, entertainment and boat tours. Since the rooms are not cleaned daily, there is a...

This hotel is a quaint & clean hotel with everything you need to make your stay here comfortable! Our room this time was ocean front, what a view! The beach in front of hotel is wide open and lots of beach! It's the quieter part of the beach! We walked to John's pass for dinner (5 min walk). I definitely...

just had 2 nights here as part of a road trip and wanted to visit johns pass. the hotel is quite small, which i refer, some rooms face the beach and some the pool, ours faced the pool which was nice but means it's nearer the road too so some traffic noise can be heard early in the morning. we...

Nice hotel right on the beach. Small room segregated with a kitchenette area containing a coffee pot, small refrigerator and microwave. Enuf to brew a pot of coffee in the a.m. Beach side rooms have small balconies, good to enjoy the ocean from your room. There are unit air conditioners that work, but tend to blow directly on the bed....

This is the second time we have stayed at Barefoot Beach and it was even more relaxing than last time. We previously came in April 2015 and it was quite busy. Having just been in September we practically had the place to ourselves. We were late for check in so they leave your key in a box for you and...

This place is unbelievable. I was a little leery to book such an old property. Was I ever glad I did. This place is a retro motel, but it is much more than a motel. Yes, it has outdoor entry, but that's where the motel ends. This property has been updated, but without losing its charm. The property is small,...
