Great room, very clean and the view of the gulf was amazing. Close to everything, shopping, restaurants, and on the beach. Will definitely stay again. I love the sitting area in the room with a couch, and table and chairs, comfy bed, nice towels.

Lovely hotel and great location right on St Petersburg beach. Room spacious with mini kitchen. Watching the glorious sunset in the evening from your own balcony. Would definitely book again and recommend to friends.

We live locally but wanted a weekend getaway at the beach. Not a huge fan of the big chain hotels we looked for a nice "mom and pop" type place on the sand and were not disappointed with the Barefoot Beach Hotel. When we checked in, the front desk staff was super friendly, personable, and eager to recommend local places...

This was one of the best hotels ever stayed at. While the outside isnt "pretty" the inside is beyond perfect. These people have thought of EVERYTHING. Wash cloths specific for makeup removal, wine glasses, coffee mugs, utensils, items to borrow for use on the beach (rafts, chairs, etc), absolutely everything (except hair conditioner!). Everything is clean and comfortable. The beach...

This place was AWESOME! Clean rooms and equipped with everything you needed for a long weekend. Heath at the front office was VERY accommodating and offered us coupons and good restaurant choices. The beaches are clean, the pool area is clean. It is very well maintained throughout. I can't wait to make reservations and spend some more time there. We...

My wife and I have stayed at this hotel twice for a week each time and have never been let down. This hotel is literally ON the beach. As soon as you step off the elevator, it's 20 feet to beautiful white sand, and about 200 yards from the Gulf. The hotel may not look like much on the outside,...

A small hotel on the water. the rooms are adequate and the beach view rooms are nice. I keep returning as it is in an area that the beach is quiet and not crazy. There are nice restaurants near by and the pool is nice when you come in from the sand. A nice place for a get away.

What a relief! We were driving down Gulf Boulevard looking for Barefoot Beach Hotel where we had made reservations through Hotels.com and to redeem our free night. I was very leery of the surroundings prior to arriving at Barefoot Beach. The resorts and hotels were either in need of TLC or under construction. What a breath of fresh air to...

We stayed here for three nights in August and had a great time. Check in was easy at the office at the front of the hotel and staff were really helpful and told us all we needed to know. We had a room on the first floor overlooking the pool which was great for the kids. The beach was bliss,...
