I came to hotel last weekend . The purpose of my stay was both business and pleasure. The experience was great from the time I got there till the till I left. The views of the ocean were breathtaking, and the hotel's common space which seems to have been restored was elegant and comfortable. The hotel room was considerably larger... More

I guess February isn 't the best time to visit an oceanfront hotel but I can't imagine what we ran into would be any different in the summer. First off, make sure you get 2 keys. Because you need to leave one in the room to keep the heat on! Yes, you heard me correctly. You must insert your key... More

We were on the eighth floor facing the ocean and it could not have been more romantic. There was an iHome available so we were able to play music... More

The Berkeley in Asbury Park Is a great place to stay for a few days or just a weekend. The staff is wonderful. Bridget, Joe, and Steve are most courteous and helpful on every level. The hotel offers a timeless history and charm. Some of the rooms have spectacular views. My experience on the boardwalk as a child along with... More

nice place for seeing shows, haven't tried their restaurant but will be back in summer I hope. Spacious room was quiet except the doors in the morning, seems every hotel has to have slamming doors and no guests are considerate enough to close softly

You can't beat the customer service and location of the Berkley. It's like you've stepped back into the 1960's. While charming and main areas are updated - the room was is news or some TLC to being it back to its splendor. I recommend this hotel for a great weekend getaway.
