Despite the hotel's prime location, courteous staff and general cleanliness, the main components of the hotel were subpar. The bed and pillows were so hard that I had to sleep on the sitting area sofa. As a result, I hardly slept- maybe three hours at best and woke up with a back ache. After brushing my teeth, the water went... More

We recently decided upon the Berkeley Hotel to host our company holiday party. It was without a doubt the best decision we made!

The staff at the Berkeley is the best I have ever had to deal with. They are so amazing. The hotel and location are perfect for a shore excursion. The beds are excellent and the bathrooms are enormous. I will certainly be back.

Shameful comes to mind when I think of one word to describe The Berkeley. The windows didn't open, the air conditioning didn't work, and my wife was stuck in the elevator for 20 minutes. The restaurant had just closed down or gone out of business -- nothing close by for breakfast. It was being in that movie "The Shining." The... More

Great venue,food good, quiet, great location. Staff was helpful. Broken strap on dresser should have been fixed.rm where wedding was held was really cold even with people dancing ,jackets on ,wraps.....older people were really cold. Would recommend the Berkeley but would question the heat situation.

New name new ownership, this hotel has made great strides since the times I stayed there in the 80's and 90's Recent stays have been great. Staff is friendly and courteous. Parking is hit or miss depending on what's going on that day. During latest stay, parking passes were available, but during our previous stay, back in September, they were... More

Overall we were very pleased with the Berkley. We were looking for a venue that would accommodate a wedding reception, hotel and after party, which the Berkley fulfilled all 3.

Just visited Asbury Park for our first time and really enjoyed our stay at the Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel. Was close to everywhere we wanted to go so we could walk. Valet parking was very reasonable. Best hotel shower I've had. Highly recommend.
