old hotel

I found three roaches the first day I arrived and I did not even eat in my room yet. Rooms are dark, dingy, dirty, had a little smell. You have to tell the maid what to clean. The tile work needs to be regrouted and there should be a wall under the sink so that you do not see the pipes and roaches will stop comming from there. Breakfast was minimal. Hot tub was barely warm. The only good thing is that it is on the oceanfront, located near attractions, shuttle, tv channels and free wifi. Some of the staff were very decent but others were not professional. Shoes should be required when you are on the job. Talking badly about others should not be done in front of guests.

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.

Enjoyed hotel, but...

The room above me or below me had smokers in it, even though it was a non-smoking hotel. The stench kept coming through the vents and I am asthmatic. Front desk said there was nothing they could do about it until the other guests checked out and then they would chrage their room for additional cleaning. Great...but didn't help me at all. Slept on the balcony one nite..that goodness for an ocean view, great weather and a beautiful sunrise.

Perfect location, huge room, fit the need

I needed a room for a night for after a bachelorette party. The location was perfect - all oceanfronts suites and within walking distance to many restaurants. It's an old building and the renovations border on typical cheezy beachy decor but everything was clean and the price was right. It was great and handy having a kitchenette in the room.

Visiting family

Location is outstanding and all rooms have an ocean view. If you are planning an extended stay, the kitchen is very useful and makes for a more economical visit. Pool area has been recently redone and is quite nice.

Great location on the beach

The Barclay Towers is located on the beach and was perfect while attending the surfing championship. Check in was smooth and problem free. Nice room, clean and large. Hotel staff were all nice. The continental breakfast was good. Many restaurants and music venues nearby.

Great place but beds are not the best

The hotel and staff were great... the room was too... but the bed was not the most comfortable. But, an excellent location and terrific view... two room hotel room so it did not feel like a hotel room.
