Over all place was very nice, Paint was peeling in the bathroom along with some water stains through out the hotel. Overall very nice stay and walking distance to bars and restaurants. Will stay here again.

This place is a pit. Filthy, old and decrepit. Beds are hard as rock, no mattress pads. To get into shower we had to jump over toilet to get in! They nickel and dime you to death: $10.00 a day to park (January) $10.00 a day for WiFi. My suggestion: GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!

Pros: You can not beat the location to the convention hall and boardwalk. Rooms are large and comfortable. Staff was friendly. Cons: Stains on some of the linens and lack of bottled water (even for purchase).

My husband and I had the opportunity to stay at the Berkeley recently and I must say, it was wonderful. First and foremost, I love the Art Deco decor. The refurbishing of the hotel was done impeccably. Our room was clean which is my main concern. The bed and bedding was very comfortable. I was very surprised to see we... More

My husband and I stayed one night at the Berkeley Hotel from 1/30 to 1/31. The good: the hotel is conveniently located, the front desk staff was very helpful and friendly, parking was easy and it is architecturally lovely. The bad: the room was EXTREMELY hot throughout our stay. Even with the AC (I think it was AC) constantly and... More

Living in California and off the coast, I'm unimpressed with the hotel room. One of my family members needed to use the hide away bed and there wasn't linens for the bed in their room so they took mine of the spare bed. We found that the bed has major water stains! The dresser drawers won't close and the lacquer... More

The Berkeley is by far the best experience at the Jersey Shore. The boutique style, hip hotel is divine. The rooms are so spacious, so comfortable and so reasonably priced. Bathroom is fab with upscale products. Love, love staying here! And right on the beach and in Asbury!!

For offseason, it's pretty cheap so it's good for what you pay. If you are staying during the summer, the cost is not worth it for the rooms. There are other nicer places. I would definitely ask to stay on the ocean side, because that could make it worth the stay. Large rooms, but very dingy.

Rooms are warm and confortable. Allways clean, the only minus is the internet isn't free. It's in walking distance of all major events. I just love staying in the Berkely every time... Will go there again.
