Nice hotel very close to the beachPosted May 26, 2015
Pros: Facilities were in very good shape, except for one of the ceiling fans, but the A/C worked like a charm.
Cons: Fix the A/C in the living room and clean the carpet in both bedrooms.
Location: Fantastic view, fantastic location. Walking distance to restaurants, coffee shop, beach and pool. 5 min drive to pharmacy/gas.
I stayed at the Barefoot Beach Resort for Memorial Day weekend. Had it not been for the dirty carpet in one of the bedrooms, I would have given them an All-Around 5. My unit had a fantastic view of the Intercoastal with sailboats and the occasional dolphin family swimming by. Everything is closeby, from the resort's pool, to the beach access, to plenty of eateries. I recommend a morning walk to the local coffee shop. The Salt Rock is a great place for dinner and is located next door to the Barefoot Beach Resort. Facilities were in very good shape, except for one of the ceiling fans, but the A/C worked like a charm. Nearby Clearwater Beach was packed with people and cars this weekend, but Indian Rocks was not... by far. If you are looking for a relaxing place; this is it.

No view of the water, no private balconyPosted May 12, 2015
Pros: Really nothing stood out as a great feature.
Cons: The unit needs to be updated. The staff might want to offer replacement amenities upon request rather than charging $1 for a roll of toilet paper!
Location: The hotel is located on a nice stretch of Gulf Blvd that leads to all of the key beaches and has beach access across the street.
Unfortunately the room may as well have been in a motel; no private balcony, not on the waterway or even a view of the waterway or ocean. The air conditioner runs frequently and is very loud. The unit needs to be updated - the shower was old and did not appear that the unit is maintained very well. The one wicker dresser, to be used for all guests, had very worn drawers of which three would not even open and the 25" flat screen TV monitor almost fell off twice just opening the two drawers that would work. Unit was not vacuumed too thoroughly upon check-in and a few light bulbs were out in dining room chandelier - seems like an obvious item to check when room is being cleaned and prepped for next guests. The TV remote control did not work and as we later discovered, there wasn't even a battery in it; once again, seems like an easy item to add to the checklist when prepping the unit. The smoke detector in the bedroom was chirping from the moment we arrived but that can happen anywhere and the battery was replaced the next morning. Overall, just not what we had expected after having seen nice waterway pictures, etc. on the website.

Wonderful Stay!Posted Mar 11, 2015
We were greeted warmly and given our condo right away even though we were early. The staff, guest and residents were kind and helpful! Beach is just across the street with a crosswalk to use. Pool was warm and wonderful for my niece who was with us. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Din not get a condo, but instead got a motelPosted Feb 4, 2015 on Hotels
My stay was ok but I thought I was getting a condo resort from the pictures on their web page but instead I ended up with a motel room that had been remodeled. That was very disappointing. As for the motel room it was clean and freshly painted but the shower needed some cleaning in the tile floor area. The front desk was pleasant and the grounds were kept clean. I probably wont stay there again , I could have got something nicer for the price that I paid.

Clean, spacious and quiet! The 1 bedrooms sleep 6 and have plenty of relaxing room! Close to the water, activities and some great restaurants.

Slice of heaven.Posted Dec 28, 2014 on Hotels
We LOVED our stay at Barefoot Beach. Our condo was immaculate and extremely well equipped: plenty of dishes and linens along with hooks and drawers for storage. Even had multiple tables so we could have puzzles, games, and meals all going at once. We thought being on the intercoastal waterway would be a let down but were pleasantly surprised: extremely fun to watch the yachts, fishing boats, pelicans, ospreys, and even dolphins just outside our door. Pool was nice and warm, swimmable even on 60-something degree days. Staff was extremely helpful. Location was fabulous: a two minute walk from the beach and only 30 minutes from the airport. Only thing we did not care for was the beds: seemed "plastic-y" and a little creaky. Aside from that, place was absolutely perfect.

location goodPosted Dec 2, 2014
Cons: rusty toilet paper caddy - come on folks! loose toilet seat. They just have no attention to detail.
Furniture is worn, baseboards need a good scrub. It's a typical Florida tourist hotel ok but not more. It worked for a three night stay - any longer would have been a stretch.
