The Berkeley is spacious and well maintained for such a large hotel. It's always great. The area has turned around quite a bit over the last ten years or so and is now a hub of great music and dinning!

My birthday was celebrated at the Berkeley last August with friends and family...it was a wonderful experience. The staff was efficient and friendly.,,gave us suggestions and helpful hints about Asbury Park. We're making plans to return to the hotel in June for another birthday get-away because the rooms are clean and spacious (no A/C noise!) The hotel is beautifully appointed.... More

This hotel has obviously been around for a very long time and the owner had definitly done some work to bring into the 21st century, however there is more work to be done. The price we payed to stay here during the off season is what I feel it is worth year-round. At first glance everything looks beautiful but as... More

Enjoyed our stay but paid a lot of money for two nights without any usual hotel facilities. No bar or restaurant and because of the number of other customers celebrating the Jewish Passover there was nowhere to sit other than in the bedroom. Room was very spacious with lots of light and could even view the ocean whilst lying in... More

The location cannot be beat and the hotel has been recently renovated. The staff were all very professional and happy to help with questions about dinning options (drinking)... Clean rooms at a reasonable price, pay $10 and leave the car in the hotel lot and enjoy all asbury has to offer. We will be back often.

The hotel itself is in excellent condition, and the Front Desk staff were top notch. The room that I had reserved was not available, so they immediately upgraded me to a larger suite - which was lovely. The location opposite the Convention Center and Paramount Theater (and Boardwalk) is perfect, and all the restaurants and bars were within easy walking... More

We enjoyed our stay..it is what you make of it and the company you keep. Curious about the orthodox elevator. Elevators took a long time to come, so we mostly took stairs. Parents did not watch their children who were running up and down stairs..perhaps a note to parents upon arrival..for their safety.

The Berkeley was the host hotel for a half marathon I ran this weekend. While the room was clean and the property attractive, the staff's inflexibility made my stay a very unpleasant one. Since the race ended between 10:30 and 11:00, I knew that I would need a later checkout time and was prepared to pay for that, if possible.... More

Having previously had our daughter's wedding at the Berkeley three years ago, we were looking forward to spending another family weekend there. Our one-night stay did not disappoint. Tara and Andrea at the front desk were charming, and most helpful when there were some minor problems with our reservation. The rooms are large and ours had a great ocean view.... More
