I really was pleased with my oceanfront room at the Barefoot Beach Hotel just a few blocks from John's Pass. The room had a kitchenette with granite counter tops, as well as the counter in the bathroom. It is like a suite, with separate sleeping area, living room, kitchen. They furnished it beautifully. The location was great, close to shops... More

Very pleasant employees on the well maintained property. Very clean room with a great Gulf front view. We will definitely return! Only downside was the A/C. We could not get it balanced. Either our son (who slept on the fold out) by the A/C was cold and we were comfortable or he was comfortable and we were a tad warm.... More

The barefoot Beach Hotel is right on the beach, it is within walking distance to many restaurants and John's Pass. The pool area was perfectly sunny and very clean. The "kitchenette" in the room was small but enough for us to make breakfast and lunch. Definitely going back soon!

I stayed in an adjoining room with my sister on the other side for 2 nights. All the staff was very nice. The rooms are very comfortable. Upon entering is a mini fridge, sink, microwave area. Then the bed area, then half wall which is separation to the sofa and table with a few chairs. We did have a balcony... More

Beautiful, quiet place with a wonderful beach. Small hotel feel with lovely beach view. Peaceful area. Only thing you might miss is a restaurant on site or bar. They have the perfect property for a tiki bar. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here a week in December 2013. The rooms are OK but us being a family of four a bit small, and the furnishing could most adequately be described as basic. That the rooms weren't cleaned on a regular basis didn't really bother us, but the ant colony that inhabited the kitchen area were definitely a nuisance. Any fruits or... More

Great hotel with great staff, great rooms and incredible views. Really was everything we wanted from a beach hotel, even had a beach game basket with body boards beach balls racquets and buckets and spades, the kids loved it. The good sized pool was also a bonus. When we come back to Madeira Beach we will certainly be staying here... More

Happened upon this hotel while driving up the coastline and decided to give it a shot. The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and tidy, if a bit spartan, and the view of the gulf was great. One odd thing was that housekeeping was not available and if you needed clean sheets or towels they would leave... More

I spent a week at Barefoot Beach Hotel in a poolside studio. I enjoyed the visit immensely! I liked the way they replaced towels and supplies by having you put the used towels in a basket outside your door each morning and had a checklist you could indicate when you needed items like soap or toilet tissue. Great idea! The... More
