grand, old-style hotel with updated rooms. clean & comfortable. rooms are decent sized, although the shower set up is terrible. a half door that doesn't move. best area of the beach-more quiet, nice pool. elevators are a little slow, but the place is large with a lot of guests. one person in the restaurant for breakfast who had no idea...

The management and maintenance of this beautiful property was a bit disappointing. The first night, there were no towels or soap in our room, the next night they took all the towels and didn't replace them. Our wastebaskets were never emptied. The window shade in our room was broken and it took 2 days to get it repaired. Something was... More

I'm a local and I've heard great things about the Berkeley but never had a reason to stay being so close to home. When my fiance and I decide to do a spur of the moment "Stay-cation" I immediatly thought of the eclectic Asbury Park and historic Berkeley Oceanfront. Wow, what a cool place! The hotel is modern and chic... More

Tv remote did work. Bathroom door shut locked. All the bathroom sinks were clogged . Not at all worth the money . Location however perfect . And not to mention there is no parking no commodity at all.

Hotel is great, location is wonderful as it is right across boardwalk with easy access to beach and plenty of restaurants. Hotel seems to be well maintained from my visit 2 years ago on Labor Day. We booked a deluxe 2 queen Oceanview and asked for a corner unit since we were traveling with a baby and he often cries... More

Lights next to bed did not work. very hard to find a plug for devices. Very expensive for a during the week room. There was no continental breakfast which is ok. It was kinda nice for a very old hotel. Parking is extra as well $20.00

Grand old building that has been upgraded to some extent but is still a work in progress but it is not clear if they are still reinvesting in the property. Carpeting is dated. Outside bar food substandard. Location is good. Parking and bell hop service are good. Starting landscaping at 7:30am should stop.

the room my friend, her mom, and I stayed in was absolutely beautiful. the location is especially perfect if you're looking to stay close to the beach. there was a variety of restaurants you could choose from. it varied from Cuban food to pizza to crepes. Two members of the hotel staff, Eliot and Isaiah, were especially helpful. They provided... More

My family and I enjoyed our stay and your location is perfect to the boardwalk. A couple of people that stand out in making our stays truly memorable. This one young man Isaiah always had a huge smile on his face and always made me feel valued. He always had an upbeat personally and seems like he truly loves his... More
