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

Hotel room quiet. Restaurant not very good but walking distance to many other restaurants. Noticed a mild chemical smell in room and on bedding but they brought in a machine that helped. Staff courteous and helpful. Overall , would stay here again.

Very expensive but luxury accommodation. VERY comfortable room.

Great Location. Room was cozy, clean and neat. We ran out of towels called the front desk and they were promtly delviered. Great experience. The front desk staff were friendly. No issues at all except for a very slow WiFi.

Was asked if I wanted to upgrade and I chose to do so for the King bed for a little extra. Room was small, tiny window but the bed was like sleeping on a cloud, extremely comfy. Downside was the size of the room and the fact that there was someone's shavings stuck to the sink which were not visible til wet, and I am not talking just a few. Clearly the cleaning staff did not clean the sink out. Staff otherwise were good and always smiling. I give the stay a 2.5 out of 5

We've been there for 3 days for some personal business. The room was on the ground floor - you can feel the smell. The furniture and some other room stuff are so used and outdated. If you don't mind - everything else is good, especially location, Tempo bar- restaurant, personnel. Especially staff - so kind and courteous.

The staff was excellent and the location was very convenient. It was a quiet time for the hotel and it felt like we had the place to ourselves. It was a wonderful stay.
