Will be back

Location was great on boardwalk. Balcony nice. Suite large. Hot tub and indoor pool clean and well maintained. Issue with front desk staff denying me a parking pass for visitor on first night. Second day inquired again and received one with no problems from a different staff member. Shower not cleaned properly because open soap and shampoo was left in there upon my arrival. "Vent in bathroom dust encrusted.

Smoke

The breakfast as the entire hotel is listed smoke free 100%. Well apparently the man who oversees the breakfast can violate and enforce the rules as he sees fit. On our last day he approved and provided ashtrays for "certain" guests. While picking at us for taking a muffin without tongs. I say he is racist and do not recommend this outdated substandard facility. We will be Way more discerning and avoid Barclay in the future.

Great Weekend!

The staff is friendly. When we call about the blow dryer someone responded immediately and brought a new one. The location is terrific. Beds were comfortable and the suite layout was really nice. Great views. The breakfast was a little disappointing but they had bagels, cereal, hard boiled eggs, toast, and donuts.

Decent hotel

Great bang for the buck. Not new - so don't expect granite & marble! Carpet is old & sofa is dingy. But it does have a complete kitchen & free breakfast - and free wi-fi that worked every time I used my iPad. Plus, we had a king sized bed in our own room while the kids slept on the pull-out sofa bed. And the best part - oceanfront balcony! I also would like to say that the staff at the front desk was wonderful. Very pleasant & nice, which makes your stay even better. I think they are trying to do the best they can with an older structure. With the decent price, you can't beat it! (Plus they had lollipops for my kids, who thought that was the greatest thing in the world! It really is the little things in life that make all the difference!)

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Try to book the end of summer to get a great view of the bands on 4th Street Stage during Music Festival Weekend. We got great free entertainment all weekend. On second thought, don't do that. I don't want my perfect spot taken away!

About the Hotel

Location of Hotel was excellent. The two Room suites were very convenient. Bedroom was separate from living room and kitchen. Overall place was very clean. 4/5. All amenities in the kitchen so it was very convenient. Then the wonderful view of the Oceanfront from the balcony. Best time I ever had from my previous hotel experiences. Will definitely go back and recommend to friends & family. Also Continental breakfast was good and enough place to sit in the dining room. Price was good too!!! Would like to get more discount next time!!!
