“Nice place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2012

We recently spent a night at the Barclay Towers. The hotel was great. We had a wonderful view from our 8th floor balcony. The room itself was great,clean. No problems with wifi. The fact that it had a separate bedroom, with a door, was nice. It would be good for people with a family, as it is really like 2 rooms in one. Having 2 TVs is nice too. The kitchen area was nice, everything a person could need. This is a place you can really make yourself feel at home. The breakfast was pretty good, boiled eggs, fruit, oatmeal, etc. There were many good restaurants within just a few minutes walking, up-scale seafood, steak or Italian, plus the usual pizza and fast food places. This end of the beach is known as the surfing end, and we did see many surfers--does this mean rougher water? Families with small children may want to ask that question. All in all a great place to stay.

Thank you for choosing Barclay Towers for your stay in Virginia Beach. It is very rewarding to my staff and I to read your positve review. We appreciate your business and look forward to your return. By the way, the surfing area is desgnated at 1st-2nd Street(by the jetty), we are at 9th Street and the water is not any rougher here. You see more surfers in the off-season because they are not restricted as in the summer season. Thanks again.

Stayed for a week there with my parents last summer. We had to call the desk everyday in order to have the room cleaned and even then it was as if we were bad custommers and half the time they didnt come. Major problems with the keys also - again as if we were disturbing the peace of the desk... Not a good place.

We arrived in our room to find no light bulbs in sockets, toilet seat was loose,dirty dirty dishes in cupboard,locks loose on door. This hotel needs upgrading.The wireless internet that they offered was only good in the bedroom, and you could not use it in any other room. No usuage in the living room or on the patio. I called the desk and she said the best place is the bedroom, no other room. No hot tub that week either. Wished we would have know that ahead of time. No return to this hotel.

This was our third time at the Barclay and we still love it! Tracie at the front desk was great. When we first arrived, we were in a room by the elevator :( I asked if we could be moved and Tracy moved us right away. The views are amazing. I love the two room suites. I could be in the living room while my boyfriend slept in. Archie downstairs at breakfast was great as usual. The pool and hottub were great as well. The elevators were quick. I loved every minute of my stay.

Room Tip: Get an end room.
