The location and decor are nice- everything is else bare minimum. For example, no indoor pool, haphazard fitness center, WiFi costs $10/day additional, a refrigerator in the room costs $25 additional, and no complimentary breakfast. No bible or directory in the room, and only one wash cloth was provided in my room (2 queen beds) and a friend's room (1... More

I booked this hotel because it was the host hotel for a race nearby that I was participating in. It was expensive especially for off season but I wanted to be conveniently located. The hotel is across the street from the beach. I would like to start by saying that the staff was friendly and responsive to requests. The room... More

I have had the pleasure of staying at the Berkley SEVEN wonderful times. If you enjoy old historic hotels with charm then you will be pleased. IF you are looking for a modern state of the art hotel do yourself a favor a book elsewhere. What makes the hotel is it's history. Clean and GREAT location to everything. No restaurant... More

Great hotel with ocean views and pet friend. Nice location by the beach with a lot of walking options for food, drinks and entertainment. We brought our dog to the beach (off season). Everybody had a great time.

Went to Asbury for my birthday and got a room at the Berkeley for everyone to meet at and so I didn't have to drive home (40 minute trip away.) Arrived and was told I was upgraded for free (to a room with a pullout couch.) Room was decent-sized for a basic unit, and was very clean. Tip: they offer... More

I stayed over the summer and experienced a extremely long check in and unfriendly service. The hotel if looked at closely needs to be cleaned and maintained better. The water pressure for the shower is horrible. I write a review about this and hotel general manager asked to speak to me but did not provide a email address. I contacted... More

If you're looking for an ultra modern hotel with the latest i-gadget in your room (with the attendant closet sized room and unusable furniture) this may not be for you... We enjoyed our stay very much. Our room was quiet, clean, comfortable, and spacious. We had a great view of the beach and the ocean. Easy walk to boardwalk restaurants.... More
