I really enjoyed my view from the balcony, and I also enjoyed the friendly staff who alwasy said hello...
The walls were so thin that I could hear my neighbors snore...
The location was great. We walked to everything from the beach to great restaurants and shopping.
I don't smoke but my wife does. At ost hotels that are soke free you can still smoke on the balcony or outside the building but here it was a $250 fine to smoke on the property. My wife had to go to the boardwalk to smoke which was inconvienent for her. The soking policy should be made clear before registration. The elevators were not great. They bounced and lurched while in motion and the door would try to close on you after being open only 3 or 4 seconds.
This was our first trip to Virginia Beach and we were well pleased with the beach and the motel. It was a nice polace and the staff was very friendly. We hope to stay there again next year.
No outdoor pool in the sun. The kids like playing in an outdoor pool, but got use to the inside pool as the week went by. Motel needs to supply some lounges for the beach or either a cheaper rate or special on renting them.
I am happy to say that our stay at the Barclay was wonderful in every way. I have never stayed a place where all of the staff were so kind and helpul. The rooms were "roomy", comfortable and clean; the elevator fast and efficient. I was very impressed! But it was the staff that truly impressed me.I Would choose this hotel again! Thank you all for making our week so special.
Not able to use freezer in refrigerator (no doors on frezzing area) so we could not keep ice cream on hand.
The hotel is an excellent location on the beachfront. It is close to shopping and restaurants. The staff was overly courteous and ready to take care of all your needs.
The online reviews were very good, but only the location is excellent. Everything they had to do themselves was fair at best.
Second day no cleaning of the room at all. Bad smelling hall and a bit worn down.
Location to the ocean, assistance of the staff, and a large room with what we needed.
The beds aren't that comfortable, and the walls are paper thin. However, for budget minded people like us, it didn't take much to overlook these inconveniences.
good value, good location, clean rooms and great maid service, good front desk assistance, great view, nice continental breakfast (with pastries, cereal, yogurt, great coffee, juice, bagles), friendly staff. Laundry and ice available. Nice size safe in room. Public computer available. Nice size heated pool. Felt safe and secure.
the website was missing information as to what kitchen items, etc were actually in the suite. We wound up spending about $25-$30 on kitchen items which we could have brought from home had we known. Also, it should be mentioned that the fridge is not a full size and but is a half size without a decent freezer. Parking may need a bit more broad explanation as to what is available. Sat check in was hectic, hot, and frustrating for weary travelers.
when checking in, the attendant attempted to charge us almost $100 more than the amount quoted online at Booked.net. Even though our online confirmation said one price, which was lower, the attendant had a very difficult time changing the figures in the computer system. Eventually, she was able to manually change the figures and actually charged us $60 less than the online confirmation; which was a blessing in disguise.
The room was not very clean, sand on bed sheets. Soda/drink machines on all floods were out of stock.
The hotel is good value for money given the location. It was very clean, but the hotel is tired and dated and would need considerable renovation to make it feel modern and good quality and first impressions (corridors and lifts) are not good. However, to mark it down is unfair as you need to pay a lot more to get the same standard of cleanliness and service in a modern facility. The bathroom was actually quite modern and there was a safe in the bedroom which was a nice surprise. On arrival our room smelt a bit stale but we think that was due to the cleaning products used.
Communal areas are tired and dated. Breakfast could be a lot better.
The only positives we had while there were that the hotel was ocean front and it was convienient to resturants and the trolly.
We did not like that we had to pay so much for a room that was old and for front desk service that was poor. We also did not being deceived about the breakfast that would be included. From what we were reading we expected a much nicer stay with a breakfast that would warrent paying the amount we paid.
The hotel is located on the boardwalk just a few feet from the beach. the rooms were cleaned and spacious.. We enjoyed our stay and will likely stay again. The kitchin was well equip and help save on dinning out. This hotel is not luxurious but it is not bad and the location is great.
The window facing the beach was dirty.
We hjad to leave because of a sickness and it was not a problem with booking .com and barclay. We appreciated very much your ampathy.
Plenty was offered for the price.
Its a little outdated, but still quite comfy.
