This is our second year for staying at the Barefoot Mailman. It is the most cozy, safe, clean, friendly quaint motel and priced extremely fair. I would recommend this to anyone and promise you will not be disappointed. Sherri & Jeff

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...

As per the recommendation of friends and the ratings on Trip Advisor my husband and I decided to stay here for the month of February as it was inexpensive and brought us near many of attractions and people we were visiting.

it will not be my last. This motel is perfect for me. It is charming, homey, comfortable, inexpensive, and, most of all, very clean. The wifi is free and fast. There is no breakfast, but there are plenty of places to eat or to buy food to fill the fridge in your room. You can eat in your room or...

If you're looking for a vacation spot, complete with pool, spa, fitness center and lounge, this isn't your place. But if you're looking for a nice, CLEAN, "quiet" and comfortable place to relax and sleep, then this is the place. From the moment we arrived, the staff was kind, courteous, and accomodating. Nothing fancy or frilly about this, just a...

Thank you David P for your kind review. You are right, it is not about what a place isn't but what it is. We don't try to compete with the ultra high-end hotels and spas but for people looking for a "nice, CLEAN, "quiet" and comfortable place to relax and sleep", this is the place. I am a seasoned, world...

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...

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....

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.

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...

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!
