Overall, an excellent place to stay. Pricey, but worth it compared to the typical seaside motel. Easy access to boardwalk and restaurants. If you like to go to bed early, you may be inconvenienced by the music coming from the boardwalk if you have a room with an ocean view. We could hear it on the 7th floor and it... More

Here's the place to come if you want to get stiffed by greedy, money-grabbing management. We paid $126 + tax for a Thursday night. Pretty good, given the location and the room was very clean, decent and comfortable, albeit rather dank and damp. The first zinger was the $20 per day charge for parking. The second zinger was the $10... More

July is prime time in New Jersey and we were treated with the best service possible. The views of the ocean - the sunrise and sunset - were incredible. The rate for Government employees was excellent.

The Berkeley had great prices and the picture looked absolutely fabulous, for what we were looking for. When we arrived it was exactly what they advertised and we were fully satisfied with... More

Loved the actual hotel.. Hotel Staff not as attentive or as helpful as I expect for hotel employees, but for a beachfront hotel and beautiful rooms/ sights.. It is the place to go !! So close to boardwalk and fun places to eat/ drink and party. Restaurant was only open on weekends.. and you have to pay for wifi (... More

the room gave me the creeps. There was no double bolt locks. The towels looked washed out. The beds were lumpy. I was so grossed out I went home. I would never go back and disappointed in quality and misrepresentation.

The rooms are nice, I have stayed in two separate rooms here on the 6th floor and a nicer suite on the 7th floor this past week. The furnishings, while trendy, seem to be cheaply made. The rooms were clean, the showers and towels were nice. My only real complaint was the man working the front desk, I'm assuming he... More

The Berkeley Hotel is directly across the street from the beach and is a great place to go for a long weekend. Its a very short distance from the greater NYC area. The Hotel is renovated and the décor is something you might see in South Beach. Our king size room was quite large (Rm #718) and had a great... More
