Very helpful staff. Nicely renovated inside, but the outside still needs work. Staff was very helpful and it is nice to have a doorman.. I did not like that wifi is not free. Parking is not guaranteed and we needed to find metered parking.

Corner room was big and comfortable and nicely renovated - bed was very comfortable and great views from 8th floor. Marble bath was beautiful and luxurious. No breakfast was a big drawback. Location is excellent. Lighting could use improvement. The flimsy plastic cups were so out of character for such a nice hotel - give us a real glass, please.

Dear Peter B, Thank you for your kind words and stellar review. While we recognize your request for real glassware in the rooms, most guests vie for something more sanitary and that is why we chose to go with individually wrapped cups. So sorry for the inconvenience and please forgive us, we aim to please. Hurry back soon we love... More

I'm not going to repeat what others have said about the Berkeley Home For The Criminal Insane, but most of it is accurate. Unhelpful desk staff, overcharged for parking and WiFi and the place just is not clean. Our room didn't have a luggage rack and the towel hook was on backwards (really). Food was splattered on our hallway which... More

I am a wedding vendor who has been working around the Northeast for years, and I have never worked with or stayed at a less warm, welcoming, or helpful location on the Eastern Seaboard. The staff was incompetent, rude and dismissive to the needs of myself and the bride-to-be. They guaranteed parking online, but refused it in person. The rooms... More

The Berkeley is a beautiful hotel, clean, art deco looking, great pool with tiki bar and totally pet friendly. You can bring your pet to the pool. I usually have to give up comfort to bring my pets but you can have both with the Berkeley. Also, right in front of the beach.

The Berkeley is my favorite hotel to stay in when I travel down the shore. The average rooms are bigger than any other hotels I've stayed at and are very clean. The staff is top notch and are always friendly. I recommend this hotel to all my friends.

My boyfriend became my fiance at this hotel then a year later became my husband. Although I didn't get married in the hotel, we did stay here on our wedding night. This hotel is so beautiful and the location is the best of any place in Asbury Park. Although it is the Jersey Shore, it feels nothing like it. Highly... More
