Room thermostat didn't work consistently. One night, thermostat was set to 70 degrees F (fan and temperature set to "Auto"), and I woke up to a room that was 88 degrees F! Had to stand at my room entrance holding the door open at 3:30 AM for 30 minutes to cool off the room with air from the hallway because... More

We found the Berkeley Hotel very satisfying for a short stay. It is satisfactorily updated for its age, and the staff are extremely friendly. The food is above average quality (not fabulous, just better than average). We found it very clean, but lacking towel bars in the bathroom. The tub plumbing could have been of better quality and maintained better,... More

I travel and spend quite a bit of time in the Asbury Park, NJ area and recently for the first time checked into the Berkeley Hotel in Asbury Park, NJ in a last minute, unplanned one night stay. I was surprised to find out there was a choir rehearsing over the weekend preparing for their Manhattan show. It was enjoyable... More

Clean, lovely room. Great location. Very nice staff. I was there for a show at the Stone Pony, very convenient, but not in the middle of chaos. Perfect for families and young people alike. Very tastefully decorated.

The Berkeley was a fantastic venue to serve our groups needs. Very spacious and the staff was very friendly on our visit. The food was decent as it was buffet style, but great desserts!! The ballroom surprisingly has great acoustics and can serve large gatherings or events. I didn't get much time to explore the area around the hotel, but... More

The new management and staff were very nice and accommodating. The rooms need some attention/update as does the building itself (cloudy windows). They charge for WiFi which is silly in my opinion. Overall, a nice experience for a no frills, retro hotel in a great location.

The hotel is beautiful and clean on the inside. And the staff provided us with great service. We loved the convenience to the bars, restaurants, and beach in the area. Most places were a short walk or cab ride away. Very pleased with our stay!
