If you're looking for a vacation spot, complete with pool, spa, fitness center and lounge, this isn't your place. But if you're looking for a nice, CLEAN, "quiet" and comfortable place to relax and sleep, then this is the place. From the moment we arrived, the staff was kind, courteous, and accomodating. Nothing fancy or frilly about this, just a...

Thank you David P for your kind review. You are right, it is not about what a place isn't but what it is. We don't try to compete with the ultra high-end hotels and spas but for people looking for a "nice, CLEAN, "quiet" and comfortable place to relax and sleep", this is the place. I am a seasoned, world...

We were in town for 3 nights and loved the Barefoot Mailman! It is, as others have noted, an older motel but it's been updated and the location was perfect. We were in an efficiency room with just one bed - it was very comfortable and clean; along with the fridge and microwave, they supplied a set of dishes and...

Thank you so much for your kind review of the Barefoot Mailman Motel. It was a pleasure having you here and I love your photographs especially of the fountain and the new landscaping in front of the Family Traveler Rooms.

A very impressive presentation for the price. Management staff is very accommodating, personable and helpful. They allowed us to check in early and asked if we needed additional amenities such as a hair dryer or ironing board. This motel is older but so well appointed and maintained. Rooms are extremely clean with refrigerator, microwave, WiFi and even USB charging ports....

I booked this hotel based on previous reviews. It is a charming place with beautifully kept grounds and a large outdoor seating area with tables, chairs, lounges and even a charcoal grill. I was a bit nervous when you have to register with the person behind a glass window. Not sure what that was about but did not see anything...

Thank you for your review. The glass window is only a precaution as the Night Manager's quarters are on the other side of that window. Overall, Lantana and this area in particular are among the safest areas in Palm Beach county. The train noise is just a fact of life along the coast of Eastern Florida and there is no...

I recently stayed at The Barefoot Mailman Motel for two nights, needing to be in the area for work-related stuff. Should you stay here? If you want luxury..no. If you want a resort...no. But, if you want a clean, small, very budget motel in an excellent location for a very nice stay..yes. Now, there is the issue of the train:...

The Barefoot Mailman Motel stands out with its sweet little garden area complete with bird feeders. It is an attractive little spot on the Dixie Highway, but by being on the Dixie Highway it is not for anybody who can't take traffic noise or train whistles. The train is LOUD! I am not saying don't stay, just don't stay if...

Last week was the second time staying here. It reminds me of the old motor inns. The room was clean and I was lucky it was ready earlier than check-in. There's a common area lanai with coffee pot, microwave, and purified water fountain. There's an adjoining outdoor common area for grilling. Walgreen's is one block away. I travel with earplugs...

So much vitriol from a couple who chronically paid their nightly room rental over a two month period late by up to three nights at a time. On January 4th after 15 times of being late on rent over a two month period they were given a warning that all nightly rentals had to be paid by 11:00am that day...

Quiet, inexpensive, cute, clean. With cancelled reservations from a hotel nearby, we happened upon The Barefoot Mailman. (There's really a story behind the name.) It's not the Ritz Carlton, but its charming and they have blackout blinds. Beautiful local plants and a quiet place to chill on the patio. We'll go again.
