“What a Great Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2008

Having a weekend commitment in nearby Long Branch led me to this newly refurbished hotel.

All I knew about Asbury was that Sprinsteen was from there.

The hotel sits right on the boardwalk with great views of the Atlantic Ocean.

All I knew was the information I found online, and was pleasantly surprised by the "Beachy" feel of the lobby.

Apparently there are new owners who undertook a renovation of every room and common area of the hotel, and I believe they did a great job.

The staff was excellent as they helped at check-in and any room requests.

The room I was given faced the ocean and had one of the most comfortable King-Size beds I have had in a hotel in a long time. The room colors are great and give the hotel and even more open airy 'Beachy' feel.

Apparently there is an outdoor pool with cabanas, and a restaurant that is opening soon.

I would definately reccommend this hotel to anyone for the summer or just a weekend getaway.

PS. I took a look at the ballrooms they have and WOW. I'm sure they have had some parties there.

I found The Berkely Hotel was everything I wanted for my stay. The decor is trendy and clean, the room was huge and the furniture and art work I was impresed with. The staff were friendly and the location is amazing. Close to everywhere I needed to be and I imagine its even nicer when the hotel is full, so I plan on being back in the summer. A good place to stay.
