The view was excellent, large corner room, spacious closet and bathroom. We had an excellent dinner at "Moon Struck" located near excellent dinning. The only thing this property needs is additional parking and breakfast. Good area for families and couples.

be wary and check everything before unpacking (cleanliness; AC; etc), have patience with the staff, they are severly understaffed! But - once you are satisfied all is in order, the hotel is a good experience with its excellent location!

First off I hope you have the pleasure of meeting Sonia at the front desk, she set the tone for how friendly and helpful the entire there was. The hotel had a nice decor and was located right across the beach from the beach, walking distance to everything. I gave it 4 stars based on the staff, decor, and location.... More

The hotel is well located but needs tons of repairs / renovations. Paper wall is peeling, ice machines brokers, receptionist not welcoming at all. Saw a lot of people disappointed and having arguments at the front desk.

It's always difficult to get a hotel on Labor Day weekend at the Jersey shore. Most hotels require a four night minimum. There were no minimum nights at the Berkeley It has an amazing location and you can get a full Oceanview room. Steps away from the boardwalk. I give it four stars because it is not a five-star hotel... More

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary and had a nice time, the only issue we had was the in house bar and restaurant were closed (apparently they are not open during the week) so we had to walk a few minutes to the boardwalk to get drinks to enjoy by the pool, which had a Tiki bar... More

We booked this room last minute for a 2 day beach getaway, The hotel has been remodeled and the rooms are decent. The windows were filthy though. The main problem was that everything was closed during the week. The restaurant and bar were not opened so there was no place to eat breakfast. The pool was ok but no place... More

This was my second visit to this hotel.....and enjoyed just as much this past month. Friendly, helpful staff at front desk, and throughout hotel. No real restaurant on site, but free coffee in AM. Easy walk across street to boardwalk, and many restaurants. nearby driving to other local shore spots like Deal and Long Branch. Hopefully, they will eventually add... More

Lovely large comfortable rooms. Great views. A fridge and coffee maker desperately needed especially when food services are not available. Good location. Comfortable bed. Great water pressure in the shower.

The room was small, smelled like orange glow cleaner and everything about it is just old. Staff was generally unfriendly. Bed was not comfortable and mattress was just old. Shower fixtures were rusty and not well cleaned. TV was terrible, not HD and lots of static. If nothing else it was nostalgic as I felt like I was watching TV... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As historic Asbury Park's premier boutique hotel, The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel enjoys a prime location along the New Jersey shoreline just steps from the famed boardwalk. Designed by noted Beaux Arts architect Warren Whitney of New York, the hotel recently underwent a renovation of historic proportions and is poised to experience the renaissance of this nineteenth-century seaside destination. Modern luxuries complement the classic grandeur of this 238-room famous hotel, with a nod to the Victorian architecture and oceanfront glamour of Asbury Park's storied past. The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel embodies everything that is the revitalization of the famed Jersey Shore and itself represents the rebirth of this cultural icon. Our restaurant is open on the weekends friday to Sunday only and open in season. ... more   less
