As a contractor and previous restaurant and hotel manager - most of the issues in this hotel are very simple fixes and are overlooked.. the showers are a joke. the blinds are ridiculous the bar atmosphere is non existent It could be a truly four star hotel with very little effort and motivation

I thought the ambience was nice. I received a room upgrade that I didn't ask for - but found the windows would not physically close all the was and the wind howled through the room especially at night. I was disappointed that there was no in room coffee pot. The light next to a couch flickered on and off -... More

Great experience every time...beautiful hotel. The outside does no justice to the Miami looking inside it has. The staff is beyond professional, customer service is excellent. The rooms r beautiful. Always a pleasure.

This is a nice hotel with friendly and helpful staff. However, parking can be tricky as they don't always have valet service, the small parking lot is quickly filled, and you are left to find parking on your own. You can park in front of the hotel if you're lucky enough to get a spot, and then pay a daily... More

There are so many things to love about The Berkeley - the staff, the mod-ish decor, the wonderful ocean views, and of course, location, location, location. The bellmen, front desk, maintenance, and housekeeping staff were all very friendly and gracious. I'm not sure what's going on with reviews berating the staff; we've stayed here multiple times with no such problems.... More

First let's start with I needed the Sun! Winter has been forever long this year in NY. I choose May 1st weekend because it was before my son was coming home from College and was going to be a nice weekend. Like all the reviews I read, don't pay 20 at the hotel to park when at the front area... More

After trying to contact management several times, via front desk and even emails I got absolutely no response until right before I was about to check out. Here's a copy of the email "My name is Michael. I'm currently staying in room 619. I wanted to express a few grievances in regards to my stay here. I was a little... More

We arrived after 3 and no room was ready for us. They did upgrade us to an ocean view but it still took some time. There were hairs in the bath tub when we arrived and lint all over the room. Housekeeping did go up and clean it right away, but the fact that it was unclean when we checked... More

Our experience at the Berkeley was top notch. The front desk people were kind & they always had a smile on their face. The room was beautiful & clean. The General Manager in training made us feel welcomed.

Me and 3 of my friends booked a last minute trip to the shore for Memorial Day Weekend because my home in Sea Girt is under construction. I stumbled upon Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel and decided to give it a shot. The hotel lobby is decorated very nice and the staff was helpful and friendly. Our room had 2 queen beds... More
