1 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

WE stayed at the hotel for a wedding nearby. The Hotels's bar had basically no liquor, the restaurant was not open and there was not even a Newspaper available. So at $200 a night for no additional services this was a terrific disappointment. PKUS rooms were really dated.

The grandeur of this old hotel (built in 1920 I believe!) and the perfect location will make it easy to overlook the areas a bit threadbare and small disrepairs. We really enjoyed the hip/modern style of decoration/furniture against the foil of the old woodwork and classic building style. We were in a deluxe junior king, the room was HUGE and... More

Our experience at the Berkeley Hotel was a very pleasant one. Our room and bathroom, on the top floor, facing the ocean, were spacious, elegant and seemed freshly renovated. We found the staff attentive and very friendly. The hotel offers a comfortable and elegant sitting area in the lobby and the mezzanine is just as impressive as displayed on the... More

by far the worst hotel ive ever stayed at. the only good part is the front desk staff. the room i stayed in had a lovely view of the air duct work on the top of the hotel, literally nothing else. the thermostat must have been broken because regardless of what we put it on, it just blew out cold...

I went there for a wedding and was told I could not park in the hotel lot. So on top of paying for room, I now had to drive around asbury, find a spot, and pay to park in it. All in a dress and heels. Not a desirable situation. Otherwise loved the hotel!!

Our room was overpriced! Ocean front king we had a side view of the ocean and the front parking lot which from what I can tell most rooms had a partial ocean view. The bed was hard and for the money there were no special accents to the room. There was no in room safe which was stressful as we... More

Chose this place due to its close proximity to family wedding on the boardwalk. So far, so good. But nearly everything else was disappointing. Where to begin? A charge of $20 per day to park in a dirt lot behind the hotel, even though municipal parking immediately next door was $10 a day, and the dirt lot was full half... More

Very Overpriced. Staff is completely unfriendly. Made you feel as though you were a burden by staying at their hotel. Rooms were unimpressive. Ala Carte everything so plan on spending a lot more than the base rate. Air system did not work and when it did just made everything dusty. It is a broken down, old hotel where everything is... More

Overpriced but your options are very limited in the area. Overall ok experience. The staff is friendly and they try but this isn't a "true" high end hotel. I'm looking forward to seeing the evolution of Asbury Park. Great town with tons of potential!!
