“Great Stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2014

My friends and I had a very enjoyable experience at Barclay Towers. The room was super clean, the view was awesome, plenty of towels, nice kitchenette. The only gripe we had was the room was very outdated! The furniture was old. The sofa sleeper bed was very uncomfortable. We ended up putting the mattress on the floor with extra pillows for support. No, we did not expect a luxury bed but it could have been more comfortable if it had been newer. It looked old as the hills. The drawers of the dresser had a funny smell to them. The toilet paper holder was extremely difficult to use. It was not your standard toilet paper holder and if you tried to change the roll, it would pinch your fingers. We ended up leaving the toilet paper off the holder. Other than the above mentioned items, it was a very pleasant stay. The staff was very courteous and helpful.

Room Tip: Stay on the 5th floor. Try to get a room away from the ice machine and elevator.

We found nothing worth complaining about at this hotel. The location is excellent, the suite was clean and spacious, and the staff members were great. Ebony was the front desk clerk who checked us in, and she was especially pleasant and courteous. We were a little wary about going down to the continental breakfast after reading several reviews saying it was not that great and that an older gentleman "watches everyone". However, we did eat breakfast there 3 mornings, and it was very good. There was a gentleman checking everyone in, but I imagine this is necessary in a hotel right on the boardwalk. Otherwise, people could wander in from off the street and help themselves. We found the gentleman to be courteous and polite, and the breakfast to be more than adequate. There were 4 choices of cereal, danishes, muffins, donuts, fruit and hard boiled eggs. Regular and decaf coffee were both available, as were apple and orange juice. Can't expect more than that for a continental breakfast!

I also read several complaints about the layout of the suite, with some people saying the living area should be the first area you enter, not the bedroom. We actually prefer the layout the way it is. We were traveling with our 2 children, and felt more secure knowing they would have to go through our room to leave the suite! This is a very family friendly hotel. One of our kids "messed up" the safe combo and it would not open. We called the front desk, and within minutes a very helpful and friendly maintenance man named Donald showed up and took care of the problem.

Another great feature of this hotel is the indoor pool. It was really great for this time of year when it's not really that hot outside. It is open until 10pm, perfect for a nightly swim before bed. It kept the kids entertained and wore them out so they slept well! We loved it here and hope to return on our next family trip to the beach.

Room Tip: Bring a few blankets from home if you have more than one child using the sleeper sofa, because the b...

The only negative thing we ever have to say is fairly petty, though this time was a little more annoying this time. In the rooms we have stay in, the toilet doesn't quite sit right with the counter in the bathroom. This time, my husband had to hold the seat up while using the bathroom.

The glasses in our cabinets had lipstick on them as if someone drank from them and didn't wash them, and the stove top had coffee spilt all over it. Other than that, the room was great. The bed was VERY comfortable! The clients at the front desk were very helpful, personable, and friendly. I will hopefully stay again soon!

The property was clean, well maintained but showing signs of age. Breakfast buffet was disappointing. Better to go out to breakfast. At busy times there was a wait for the elevators. Ad said that unit will sleep 5 but better suited for 4.

Room Tip: was unusal to enter unit thru bedroom. Upper floors have better view up and down the beach

I was wary due to past reviews but was very happy with booking.
Virginia beach has outdated buildings and hotels. It is what it is.
If you are traveling with children or just want extra space this is where to stay.
Had a great view, rooms were clean and ours seem renovated. Having a kitchen was great.
Staff was very pleasant.
It is odd having the bedroom window look onto hallway but having extra space is absolutely worth it.
Again, except for the newer hotels, Virginia Beach is outdated and not a high end hotel destination. Like most East coast beach hotels, you most likely will feel like you overpaid for what you get and you probably did. Barclay towers offers a clean and spacious environment which is great for families at a very good price.
