We exchanged a unit in Maui, Hawaii (Gold Crown, Kahana Falls) for Barclay but only as a last resort (ha ha) since our first choice in locations weren't available.
The facilities are fine but I would rank this hotel a "3-star" and I'm used to 4 or 5-star units. The bedroom is right off the hallway, so if you're a light sleeper, be prepared for noise.
The kitchen has a full fridge and a microwave but a tiny dishwasher and the laundry room down the hall had a broken dry for most the week. We didn't complain about the dryer because we didn't need to use it.
The staff was excellent but I don't go to a hotel for the staff. The indoor pool was small and the whirlpool and steamroom even smaller (used both when nobody around).
The best thing about staying at the Barclay was it's location. They are far enough away from the "downtown" area to avoid most of the crowds. Great for small families (didn't test out the sofa bed).
My mixed feelings for my trip are mostly towards VA Beach and not hotel. The resort area is trying too hard to entice families (it's illegal to swear in public) which isn't a bad thing, just a bit "overkill". Definitely not a location for same sex couples like us unless you have kids, then be prepared for some southern folks staring at you.

On the first floor there was a heated indoor pool, hot tub, exercise room and an arcade. There are available clothes washers and dryers in the building. Barclay Towers is located on the south end of the beach on 9th street.
