This boutique hotel is just steps from the Asbury Park boardwalk, convention center, and of course, the beach. When you enter the brightly lit, mid-century modern lobby, it seems like you've entered a luxury hotel, and for the $200+ price rage on weekends for a standard room, you'd expect it. But so many details are being missed. We arrived at... More

This was a great hotel for the price, across from the carnival, and the boardwalk that runs along the Atlantic Ocean!! Great area, customer service was great.. Worth the money! I would reccomend this hotel!

Hotel was a somewhat dated property that had been remodeled. Internet options were inexcusable - they use a 3rd party vendor and it costs $10/day/device for really slow service. Paid extra for "ocean view" and definitely wouldn't do that again.

Nice hotel, beautiful décor and chic style for the beach. We stayed for 1 night and enjoyed our stay and convenience of the hotel location across from the beach. My husband and I will recommend to others.

The location is great, but that's about the only thing this place has going for it. Prior to writing this review, I tried to speak with the manager on two occasions (I called last night and today, but no one called me back). Thus, it seems that any complaints you may have will fall on deaf ears. This place needs... More

We were thrilled with our very comfortable accommodations. Lovely pool area and steps to the beach. Friendly staff. Wonderful to open windows and listen to the surf. Limited dining options mid-week. We'll return.

My first impression starting with the friendly, courteous, valet employees, was "Wow. This is going to be a great hotel." Then, after I entered the hotel, I thought "Umm, the lobby décor was tacky and did not appear appropriate for the old theme of the hotel. The front desk employees were also very friendly and courteous. Then....in our room, o... More

My husband and I started here for a quick overnight without the kids, looking for some beach reading time. It is obvious the hotel has put a lot of work into renovating. The lobby and surrounding areas are very pretty. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room itself was a corner unit facing the ocean so it was very... More

Generally speaking, while their are many charming elements, the hotel needs a minor facelift. The door to our room was very scratched and dented from the outside- not a great way to enter the room. Two lamps did not work (maintainence was on it right away) and neither did the blow dryer- I didn't know that until I picked it... More

Competent valet and front desk staff, but filthy common areas and room (including broken glass on flatscreen TV and busted doorlock) made this guest and family members a bit nervous. Staff attempted to rebound (Maintenance in particular) but a salty housekeeper put an exclamation point on our visit...(won't be back!)

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As historic Asbury Park's premier boutique hotel, The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel enjoys a prime location along the New Jersey shoreline just steps from the famed boardwalk. Designed by noted Beaux Arts architect Warren Whitney of New York, the hotel recently underwent a renovation of historic proportions and is poised to experience the renaissance of this nineteenth-century seaside destination. Modern luxuries complement the classic grandeur of this 238-room famous hotel, with a nod to the Victorian architecture and oceanfront glamour of Asbury Park's storied past. The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel embodies everything that is the revitalization of the famed Jersey Shore and itself represents the rebirth of this cultural icon. Our restaurant is open on the weekends friday to Sunday only and open in season. ... more   less
