The property was nice and clean however the rooms are a little dated.

Expensive parking (16$ on a weekend night), there was no back bed frame behind the bed (couldn’t lean or prop yourself up a bit) and there was other people’s garbage in the room once we were entered as well as a lot of dust. Staff were all amazingly friendly and kind!

It's a little dated but still kept up well, with great location and value. I stayed here through Hurricane Dorian and the property held up well and staff kept all services going to the best extent they could--we had one of the few functioning restaurants and bars in the whole downtown during the thick of the storm! And it was one of the few places that had power the whole time. Front desk staff were helpful in arranging an early check-in so I could get there in time before the storm hit. Kudos to the Barrington staff for helping me make it through the storm!

The location was great; I could walk to the boardwalk and parks and museums from the hotel.

Very close to attractions amenities. In the heart of downtown

Traditional rooms with large areas. Green initiative allowed me to plant a tree or receive a cash voucher if I forwent housekeeping. Excellent downtown location connected to elevated walkways.

Good location friendly staff. Beds are comfortable and rooms clean.

Tons of food/shopping around you and even connected to the hotel. The downstairs restaurant Tempo is delicious.

The staff and community are outstanding The site is tired. It needs an upgrade

Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience at the Barrington Hotel with us. We here at the Barrington Hotel know that the state of our product is getting dated and in need of a revamp, but we strive to make up for what we lack in a renovated product by offering the best customer service possible from every department from housekeeping, front office, to culinary.
