Found this place on the Internet. The reviews were really good and the price was wonderful. Took a chance and am very glad that we did. I have never heard of the town before but found it to be surrounded by other well known cities and great beaches. There are many good aces to eat both in and around Lantana....

The Barefoot Mailman is a great economical choice while visiting the Palm Beaches. This mom and pop place is a nice change from the giant chain hotels. You will be with-in walking distance to the beach, drug stores, great restaurants and three natural scrub areas with short hiking trails. The people are friendly and happy to help. They provide info...

Well the room was quaint, clean and ok for a night stay, maybe two. Upon arrival the clerk advised me my "friend" picked up my room key already. This was quite a surprise since none , including myself, knew where I was staying. After the clerk questioned ME several times to verify I did not know the person, he provided...

I checked with the Night Manager and he wanted me to apologize for this mix-up over the room key. Mistakes do sometimes happen and we will surely try to assure something like this doesn't happen again. I did, however, praise him for taking the appropriate action in giving you a different room to assure the key mix-up didn't affect your...

Very good service! Thank you so much for a nice stay! Clean, taken care of and nice people! Stayed 4 nights in two different room. The price is very low for what you get. The only minus is the train but don't let that keep you away. During our trip we paid way more for a place that wasn't even...

Thank you, Kia. I thoroughly enjoyed chatting with you over coffee in the morning. Sometimes looking at a property and how it is run through the eyes of a visitor can give good indications of what we are doing right and also what needs improvement. We are already looking forward to another chat over coffee someday. Take care. Management.

Thank you for your review. We will be installing double-pane, impact windows in our rooms during the spring and early summer months. Some of the features of these windows are: cooler rooms with less heat transfer from the outside and an approximate 60% noise reduction from the outside as well. Our already low prices will remain the same but we...

Nice rooms with high quality HVAC. Nice patio area to have morning coffee. Bathroom was on the small size but everything worked properly. The WiFi was fast and strong. Will definitely come back when I visit in the future.

Thank you for your review of our property. Just want to take the time to let people know that soon all the rooms will have the high quality HVAC units. These units are on the outside of the room making the room quieter and they have a heat pump. Now your room will maintain a good, comfortable temperature year round.

We were visiting from New York for 9 days. Very relaxing environment. Near to businesses, great restaurants, and beaches. Very clean and owner was very friendly and helpful. Not fancy, but if you are looking for the "homey Florida" experience this is the place. There are train tracks near by but didn't bother us. I miss sitting outside having my...
