So glad this place has not sold out to the "tower" hotels that are overwhelming America's beach-fronts. "Barefoot Bay Resort and Marina" has just 16 rooms, 4 of which are 2nd floor and over-look the small marina. The hotel isn't a pretentious priced tower, nor is it a sleazy dive (though you are likely to encounter smokers). Rooms are clean,...

This is an older family owned hotel. It is not a luxury hotel, but the standard queen room we had was nice and very clean and about $100 bucks less than we would have paid for one of the chains at Clearwater beach. The room had a fridge and microwave. Barefoot Bay best feature is its customer service. Front desk...

This is a reasonably priced place with a great location, and walking distance to many things in Clearwater Beach. Alison and Dave do a terrific job helping people get the most enjoyment out of their stay. Wouldn't hesitate to come back to this place next time we visit Clearwater.

This was our second stay for a combination business and relaxation trip. We returned due to the friendly attentive staff, great view and walking convenience e to Clearwater Beach. Feels like coming home, especially when you see familiar faces that also stay at the same time of year. Great location for walking and biking. Room with water view is great...

We stayed at the Barefoot Bay Resort for two nights during the middle of the week. Very clean and reasonably priced for the convenient location near the beach. We didn't use the pool, but it looked very nice and well kept. We would recommend this place.

My wife and children had previously stayed at Barefoot Bay and were impressed with the location and how nice the staff was. They also like the retro appearance of the property. I found the accommodations comfortable, affordable, very convenient to the beach, and the staff was extremely kind and helpful in recommending restaurants and attractions nearby.

For a short stay this place is perfect. Clean and in walking distance to everything and you can't beat the price. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. The famous 'Bait House' was literally across the street and if you haven't been you should make it a must visit. We would definately stay again.
