“Third visit here”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

We've been to the Barclay two times before, so obviously we are happy with the hotel. It is so nice to be at a hotel with a kitchenette so it you get tired of eating out you can at least make a quick meal or a sandwich. Everyone we had contact with was helpful and friendly. Bee gave us excellent maid service and was especially helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and the view is phenomenal. The "young man" who runs the continental breakfast (which is quite nice) has been there for years and is very friendly. We had no problem with parking and always got a space right in front of the hotel, but I can imagine it might be a problem in the in-season. But in all honesty, there is ample parking across the street, so I did not mean that you would have to park in the street. All in all we had a great vacation at the Barclay.

just left the barclay towers this morning , the overall stay was pretty good. the big eye on the stove didnt work which made boiling a big pot of water a major fail.the balcony could be bigger, the front desk wasnt the friendliest but the maintenance men were very nice.the hotel is located in a nice location,the parking lot in front of the hotel fills up quick so you may have to park across the street ,long elevator wait due to broken elevator that i think has been down a while because when i read the reviews before coming some one mentioned it. despite the things i complain about i could stay there again because it was clean for the most part and now i know what to expect. oh,it could have been about 40 dollars cheaper and the continental breakfast sucked

Room Tip: the big eye on the stove in room 822 does not work

My wife and I just returned from our stay at Barclay Towers. This was our first visit with this hotel and we were extremely impressed! From reading other reviews we were a little apprehensive at first but once we checked in our worries were put to ease. The overall hotel including the room was very clean and quiet. The room itself was immaculate and we loved the idea of having the separate bedroom and a living room with kitchenette. It was supplied with plenty of dishware, glassware, pots, pans, utensils, etc. My wife liked that their toiletries were Bath and Body works! The bed was comfy and it had plenty of extra pillows and blankets if we needed them. In the morning we tried their complimentary breakfast which consisted of bagels, pastries, cereals, yogurts, and fruits. We liked their hot tub (which is much bigger than most in Va beach) and heated pool as well. My wife and I usually go down to Va Beach once a month and would usually stay at a big name hotel located very close to this one but after staying here I don't think we will stay anywhere else again.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 7th floor and at the far right end. I would not recommend one near a elevator.

We have stayed at Barclay Towers before and were happy that the accommodations were still clean, affordable, and convenient to the restaurants that we like best. Even though only one elevator was working and coming and going was a challenge, we found that the staff members were friendly and responded to our needs in a timely fashion. We were in town for the PANorama steel drum competitions and didn't know that the "Monsters on the Beach" were this past weekend. It was fun to watch the craziness of this event from our balcony (saved us $15 each) and get a look at some really cool trucks on the boardwalk. Great Fun - we will be back..

We have stayed at numerous locations at VA Beach and the Barclay Towers is the best place yet. The location is good, its clean, price is better than most and we love the suites so that privacy is possible when you have children traveling with you.

The Barclay Towers are conveniently located, with balconies facing the ocean. That was nice. Kitchenette was fine too. But overall the building and rooms are old and tired. For example, can't remember the last time that hotel did not have flat screen TV (Barclay had old, old TV). General appearance was tending toward shabby.

Our family visited the Virginia Beach oceanfront to attend the wedding and reception of a cousin. We enjoyed staying at the Barclay Towers and look forward to visiting again soon. The wedding reception was also held at the Barclay Towers. The room was set up beautifully and the staff was very helpful.
