We stayed here for one night in December and it was fantastic. Yes it's basic, but it's delightful. The place has a real family feel and you're made very welcome from check-in to departure. The rooms have everything you need and the location is amazingly handy for Clearwater Beach and all of the restaurants and things to do. Highly recommended.

Lots of pros: GREAT location, CLEAN, good view, nice deck, wonderful people work there. Cons: Pillows were hard so bring your own. Everyone but me felt the bed was hard and lumpy. I apparently like hard beds because I slept great. The shampoo at the place is not great but there's a walgreens next door so you can get all...

Thank you for your feedback we take all responses seriously, the pillows are all new and it is very hard trying to find the right pillow to please everyone. The mattresses are only 18 months old but we will immediately look into this matter, we want all our guests to be 100% happy.

Right in the middle of everything, but a quiet and peaceful stay that made everything perfect. Extremely clean rooms with an old Florida feel. Step out the door and right near dining, Pier 60, and the Marina. The perfect stay and we can't waite to go back!

Booking was very easy, the manager was really friendly, helpful, and a mine of useful local knowledge, and the location was so convenient for everything going on at Clearwater Beach. You can literally walk out of your door and stroll for 5 mins to reach the pier. Loads of restaurants of all shapes and sizes within strolling distance, and even...

We just returned from a wonderful stay at Barefoot Bay Resort. Both Dave and the lady working reception couldn't have been nicer. They would always greet us with a happy smile and made sure we had everything we needed. The room, although small, was very well appointed. It was nice to have dishes available for a quick breakfast in the...
