WARNING: This is not a hotel for the sophisticated traveler, keep shopping for another so as to avoid several disappointments here. Hotel office hours are limited to 9am to 6pm so there is no one responsible before or after those hours to check you in or out. Their room rates here are outrageous and way over the top, for what...

Great location, however I found it on the B&B Website and if you're looking for breakfast, it's not here. (How can you advertise as a Bed & Breakfast and not serve breakfast?????) Although the room was quite spacious, there was a lot of sand on the floors and in the furniture/sheets. Also, if you stay here, insist on a beach...

Although close to the beach, this room is way overpriced and needs a makeover ASAP!! There is a mildew smell that permeates the room and a mold looking corner right by the shower. You can go across the street and get a room with 2 bedrooms and a full kitchen with your own washer and dryer at Mad Bay Resort!!...

Don't let appearances fool you. This is a great place. It's nice, the rooms are clean and comfortable and it is right on the beach. It's close to Johns Pass with plenty of restaurants and activities. We will return.

Our room was very comfortable. Although there was no daily room cleaning, a basket was provided to place outside your room every morning as needed, to replace used towels, coffee, toilet paper and other supplies. We had pool view only, but the beach was nice. We didn't use the facilities since we were visiting family at their resort. However, pool...

I stayed here for one night in the later part of February. The hotel is simple but clean. It is about 25 feet from the beach which has beautiful soft white sand. The water was a bit too cold to swim in in the Gulf of Mexico however the pool at the hotel is heated. Hotel had a small kitchenette...

Excellent location next to John's Pass with shopping and eating places abundant. Madeira Beach is one of the best, white sand and cleaned daily with nice sea shells. Hotel is excellent, clean and wonderful service.

Our room was a good size and very comfortable. We were very close to the John's Pass stretch of restaurants and shops, definitely within walking distance. The staff we encountered were very courteous and professional. We would stay there again!

In 2015 I won a two night stay for the Barefoot Beach Hotel - thank you, Johns Pass Seafood Festival! I stayed at the hotel on Jan 30 and 31 of this year. As some have noted, the location is convenient and the resort is laid out nicely. The beach is gorgeous and this time of year the sunsets were...

My husband and I were just passing through and staying one night on our way to Orlando. At breakfast we decided that we really liked it here and cancelled our plans for Orlando and stayed an extra two nights here and we are so glad that we did. This hotel is located within walking distance of St. John's Pass. We...
