4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We came here expecting an average stay, but when we came into the room and noticed how comfy the beds were, how pretty the room was arranged and how close it was to the beach (We had a beautiful ocean view) we were astonished! The staff were very friendly and one time we had a problem getting into the room... More

We had a great stay at the Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel this past weekend. Great location.....close to all the action and the beach. Rooms were a nice size and comfortable layout. Beds could be a little more comfortable, but the room was clean and spacious. You won't go wrong staying here.

At first the hotel seemed wonderful with close access to the boardwalk and beach. The surrounding area is very up coming how ever, everything is up charged. No free internet service ($10 per day) refrigerator ($25 for the stay) and parking was atrocious. After a day in NYC, dressed up to see a Broadway show in the pouring down rain,... More

From the outside, you wouldn't think the hotel was going to be that nice. But when you walk inside, it is a completely different atmosphere. So that was all good. But when I order an Ocean view room...I didn't get it. Check out time here is 11am and check-in is 3pm. The receptionist told us that the room would be... More

Found the hotel to be very clean with nice pool and just steps to the beach. Room was large too. Town even offers free electric shuttle to hot spots and great restaurants on Cookman Ave. Very relaxing stay. Great place with great value Definitely worth it!

Security does not patrol the halls. Or if they do, they do not control guests from parties in the hotel. Unless you want to stay up til 3:00 am this is not the place for families. The shower curtain had black mold on the bottom. One of the two beds was never made until we called at 8;00 pm and... More

This is my second stay in The Berkeley and both times I had a very pleasant experience.
