Needs serious update all around carpet, paint, elevator, won't be staying there until they update

Old building with no view and with old carpet all over the place.

Hotel staff rude and deceiving. They make you pay for parking at the lobby and when you get to the parking garage you have to pay again. Will never stay in this property again. Rooms were not clean.

The hotel is in a good location downtown. The rooms are spacious and reasonably clean and the balcony with a view was nice. There is a great breakfast in the morning. It is very good value and I would stay there again.

The hotel is run down and in need of some renovation. But you can’t beat the price and the location. You are in walkable distance from all touristic attractions. The room is your standard double room with a bathroom. I personally didn’t find any problems with checking in or the room however there were some disgruntled guest in the lobby complaining about their rooms. The Breakfast consist of waffles,eggs,sausage bar. If your on a budget or just need a quick place to stay.

I loved it! We had a good time, the hotel is very central and the staff is very helpful.

I called the hotel at 4:00 and tried to cancel my room. The lady at the desk said to call Orbitz. So I called Orbitz and they say I could cancel but I would not get a refund. We argued not to cancel. She was very clear that my room was not canceled. tried to check in and my room about 10:00 pm after leaving some friends home 50 minutes away. When we got to the hotel they said they did not have any rooms and that they were over booked and they did not have a room. So we call Orbitz and they could not get us a credit because they could not get anyone on the phone at the hotel. We spent 20 minutes on the phone trying to get it worked out. We then drove another 50 minutes back to our friends house and slept the night there. I got 3 hours sleep the night before as I had to get up at 2:30 am and was exusted. I had a trade show in Atlanta all day long and after the hotel mess I did not get to bed until midnight. I dtohave not received an apology or my money back. Ron L

It's a good value because the staff members were super nice, beds were comfy and it includes breakfast. It's not an amazing, delicious breakfast, mind you, but you can have some raisin bran and juice. I am a food snob, so I couldn't deal with the scrambled eggs that tasted like they were probably from a powdered mix, and the sugary yogurt, etc. Coffee was just watery and bitter. The floor and sink in my room were dirty when I arrived, and although fresh linens were brought 3 of the 4 nights I was there, no one ever wiped, dusted or vacuumed anything. I told the conceirge and she was extremely apologetic and thanked me for telling her. You could pay $200 more each night to stay in the Omni and have a top-notch experience, but unless you are a princess or something, why would you?

Staff is very friendly. Breakfast is presented as a buffet from 6:30 to 9:30 and is delicious.

Pink mildew in shower, hair everywhere, very loud through the windows, etc.

Hard mattress, but great free breakfast. Affordable for the location and an easy walk to centennial park.

Your staff made us feel welcome and attended to everything that made our stay pleasant. Their knowledge and suggestions around Atlanta were very helpful.

The room we stayed at, 708, has a non-working toilet, it could barely flush, we told that to the receptionist at the check out and she helped us. Besides that it was okay, the breakfast they included has a lot to offer

I was sent to a room with no air condition, no hot water, and no phone working. I was told by hotel staff to open my balcony door to get air. WHAT?!? Someone tried to come in my room 3 diff times. I was told there were no other rooms available yet the hotel was empty. After I made it a point to say I refuse to stay in that room they all of a sudden found a new room. I will never stay there again and suggest this hotel be taken off the list. Called Orbitz to complain and the rep was from India, had never been to US, and knew nothing about Atlanta and he just wanted to send me to another hotel at night for the same price not knowing about the Atlanta area or hotels. Orbitz rep promised me a $50 credit and I NEVER received it. It is also falsely advertised. Pics show a nice white victorian style hotel which is NOT this one, its a view of one near by on the roof of this one.....

I was heading to Atlanta for a convention at the nearby Georgia World Congress Center. I had certain issues staying at the host hotel, so I shopped around for a hotel within walking distance at a price I could afford. I found it in Barclay Hotel ... it was comfortably within my budget, a fifteen minute walk, and even better, with free wi-fi. Getting a breakfast out of it made it even better. I was well pleased with my stay ... I had a great view from my room of the Skyview, the room was comfortable, and the staff was terrific. The elevator kept going down, and every time the staff was alerted to it, they immediately addressed the issue. I don't know yet if I'll go back to this convention next year, but if I do, the odds are good that I'll stay at Barclay.

I turned on the hot water on my first morning there after a night of fitful sleep on a squeaking mattress, and the water was brown for the first 10 seconds. The bright light from the top of the garage that got through the crack in the curtains kept me up, and no matter how I moved them, there was no relenting, Will not be returning and I don't recommend a stay there until they do a new round of renovations. Absolutely unacceptable.

This place is just OK....not bad not real good. I would search out the surrounding places and do your due dillegence if you have the time...

Vanessa at the reception desk makes you feel like you have lived in this hotel for years. Very friendly and welcoming. The hotel is old but for someone who is there just to spend the nights and get busy enjoying what Atlanta has got to offer I see no issues with the interior being outdated for the price/location.

I was in town for my sister's funeral. The staff ask how things went slat the funeral and even made coffee for us beforevwe left the hotel at 5:00 AM the morning of our flight back home.
