Great oceanfront hotel in Asbury Park. Spacious rooms, nice decor, helpful staff, right on the Boardwalk just north of the beautiful Convention Center. Outdoor pool, huge event space, and a bar/restaurant in the hotel. Lots of other restaurants, clubs, and shops within walking distance. Try the new Kim Marie's restaurant, which is open late, just across the street for one... More

Address any complaints with the front desk. Our room was immediately moved because we were right over the a/c equipment and could not hear the ocean waves. Friendly, attentive staff. Ocean view was beautiful. Food in the boardwalk restaurants was fantastic. Note, the hotel restaurant is open only on the weekends.

This hotel was recommended to me by a friend. After doing some research and checking reviews on my own, I was a little hesitant due to all the poor feedback. The hotel is very nice inside and I was very pleased with my room. Clean, nicely decorated, decent view, comfortable bed. Only thing missing was a refrigerator. The staff was... More

I had a great deal from Tavelzoo. Furniture dated but the bed was comfortable. Was overall good but the restaurant and bar in the hotel are not open during the week. I would go again with a deal. Sunny

This hotel is in a great location, right across the street from the beach. Parking is a pain. Place is clean and quiet. The carpeting was taken up in the lobby area, a great change! Everyone is nice and helpful

We stayed at this hotel Wednesday through Friday. As it happens the hotel restaurant and bar are open only during the weekends. Not even coffee is available in room so come prepared. No bell hop or valet was present on our arrival. Services that are available only during weekends! So if you paid less because you went during the week... More

Nice old nostalgic property that they are trying to revitalize. Overall this property is very nice and right on the boardwalk. The restaurant is only open on the weekend so we did not eat at the hotel. The pool area was well maintained as was the rest of this 100+ year old property!

No coffee or fridge in room, elevators not working, $20 bucks to park, lousy TV reception and the remote broke on 1st day. Window's you could barely see out of. Bathroom sink behind the door. Not worth it.

This was a bargain stay for our vacation. Our room was was very clean. The property has undergone some renovations but still needs some updating (i.e. Water briefly going out). New beds are definitely needed as the current are very, very stiff. Location is perfect though--just cross the street and you're on the boardwalk and steps from the beach. And... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As historic Asbury Park's premier boutique hotel, The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel enjoys a prime location along the New Jersey shoreline just steps from the famed boardwalk. Designed by noted Beaux Arts architect Warren Whitney of New York, the hotel recently underwent a renovation of historic proportions and is poised to experience the renaissance of this nineteenth-century seaside destination. Modern luxuries complement the classic grandeur of this 238-room famous hotel, with a nod to the Victorian architecture and oceanfront glamour of Asbury Park's storied past. The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel embodies everything that is the revitalization of the famed Jersey Shore and itself represents the rebirth of this cultural icon. Our restaurant is open on the weekends friday to Sunday only and open in season. ... more   less
