As soon as we arrived we were greeted by valet who told us they had the cheapest parking which would cost another 20 bucks a night. He told us we could park at the hotel lot or on the street for 1 dollar an hour. Well after walking around you realize street parking is 1 dollar an OR 10 bucks... More

I love the Berkeley and have stayed there a few times now. The location is perfect and the staff are friendly and helpful. I was only disappointed this time around by the lack of cleanliness, particularly in the bathroom. It was not fun to begin my anniversary by cleaning out other people's hair.

The location was great right across from the boardwalk in Asbury Park (which has become a great Jersey Shore town again!), but the hotel itself was a disappointment. Mainly because by 6pm our room still wasn't ready. After a full day at the beach, we were ready to clean up and get ready for dinner but they said the room... More

The room and staff were perfect but I found the wi-fi in the whole area painfully slow. TV reception could have been a little better. The view from my room was awesome and my stay was very comfortable.

There were rust all over the room and the old carpet feels like never been clean. Employees have attitudes from valet to the front desk. Also need to mention the bugs problem. Security lock on room door was broken like someone have busted open upon arrival however the in-house mechanic came and fix it right away. Location and the in-house... More

I was very impressed with the help they had there and the pool and how close it was to the boardwalk. One guy Isaiah was good in telling us where to go and what not to miss. We came in two cars and I was pissed that it was 20.00 per car to park in there unattended back lot. I... More

This hotel was very nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and modern. We got a great rate for such a nice hotel and the location. We were also happy that we were able to get a last minute reservation. The hotel was conveniently located a block away from beach and boardwalk. The elevator... More

My husband and 2 boys stayed here for 4 nights. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The accommodations were in a great location. The hotel could use a slight update of furniture in rooms. We plan to stay here again! It is a quieter area of the shore and we loved it!

While I enjoy vintage hotels and this hotel's main floor was renovated and staff pleasant, the rooms were not worth the price that was comparable to a deluxe hotel in NYC. There were groups of young people who stayed up late, shouted in the halls and slammed doors; the soundproofing was virtually non-existent. Worst of all someone came into my... More
