This was by far one of the worst hotel experiences I've had. The parking is nonexistent and we, as guests, were never given this opportunity for reduced parking even though the "lot was full". The front desk, after granting a late checkout, either never notified housekeeping of the late checkout or purposefully had them come to our room first the... More

I've stayed at The Berkeley twice. The first time my room featured a swarm of flying insects nesting behind the curtain. As I had checked in very late at night and was only staying for a few hours sleep, I just drew the curtains and didn't re-open. I figured it was just a fluke and booked another room at the... More

Hotel was in a great location near the ocean and boardwalk. Room décor was very pleasant and beds very comfortable! Hotel staff very friendly and very accommodating. Almost everything was in walking distance....restaurants, shopping, boardwalk. Had an enjoyable week and will definitely come back next month!

stayed for 2 nights mid week. Reservation was for Ocenview Deluxe, but they gave me oceanview standard. Front desk switched it to deluxe, but it wasn't oceanview. Switched again, but the room was humid with gnats (someone left the window open) so we switched back to the deluxe non ocean view. We were never refunded the difference in price since... More

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.

I booked a night at The Berkeley on a week night at the spur of the moment need for my family and I to have a mini vacation!!! 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

Gave us free night and still wasn't worth it. Housekeeping never came , no towels, electrical problems etc. They tried to rectify things like computers being down TV stopped working But it was all so aggravating.

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
