HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 24 September 2016

Chose this because of other previous reviewers, so glad that we did. Great little motel within a couple minutes walk of the beach, pier and shops. Rooms were very comfortable and homely feel. Nice little pool to relax by. Free guest parking. Staff were great, Dave and Alison deserve special mention for their friendliness. Laundry facilities on site.

We stayed here around the same time in 2014. We loved it here and it's right in the middle of everything. Rooms were clean and simple. The staff was outstanding. Great little place. Can't wait to get back there.

We had a wonderful experience here from check in to check out; everything was great! The location is centrally located to activities, restaurants and the beach. The rooms are nice size with a kitchenette offering a full refrigerator, coffee maker and toaster. There is a grill on site too; we did not use, but though nice for families. Highly recommend.

Just finished our stay at Barefoot Bay Resort and Marina in Clearwater Beach. What a fantastic little hotel with a wonderful staff. Dave, Allison, and Owen (spelled wrong, sorry) went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect for exploring Clearwater Beach by foot, no car required. Though it's an older hotel, it's...

Thank you for your review, Barefootbay team are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We do take all comments seriously and will look into that with the AC, I will give you an inside tip if you ask for RM 14 the AC is high up on the wall and not next to the bed.

“If you are going for an extended stay, request a Queen deluxe which provides more room, the pull out sofa and better kitchen, etc. All the rooms are clean and have been recently painted/upgraded. The regular Queen is nice if you just want a place to sleep for a few days (still have access to the pool and other facilities).”
