We enjoy staying at the Berkley and come for a few weekends every summer. It is easy to get to, right on beach, nice outdoor pool, walking distance to restaurants, never too crowded. The downside is no free wifi , free parking or free breakfast. This is a beautiful old hotel that has been well kept up.

The hotel could use some updating. The elevators were small and noisy. Should include a fridge in the $300 a nite stay. Had a problem with the bellman damaging my SUV and can only hope that I will hear back soon to repair the damage. The other staff members were very helpful and nice to deal with. Within walking distance... More

Very convenient to beach and events, but seems to suffer from volume and wear! Room OK, but furniture worn and scratched. No fridge. Bed comfortable. Bathroom very clean and really good shower. We had high expectations, but got conditions that were really no better and even worse than chain hotels we use along I-80 in the Midwest.

After reading various negative reviews about this hotel, I was pleasantly surprised when entering my room. The overall hotel service was not amazing, but for less than $300 a night during the summer weekend, I was satsified. The room was very spacious, the hotel is in close proximity to the beach and downtown area and it was very accessible to... More

Great location, nice staff-overall place needs more staff and services. And an overhaul-too much wear & tear. Room was not cleaned on first day but service manager made up for it. Wifi is not free; there was no restaurant open Monday through Friday. Although there is valet parking -it gets tricky and limited.

Complete nightmare. When we arrived, our room was extremely damaged - broken lamps, torn upholstery, stained sheets, chewed and broken chair legs, and wet sheets. The shower was also missing a curtain or full partition so every time we used it, the floor of the bathroom was covered in water. When we alerted the front desk to the state of... More

The location is perfect. Although the hotel needs updating, the structure, plaster ceilings, fixtures etc are gorgeous. Beds are uncomfortable, but will go again for sure. The town has a lot to offer!

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. The Berkeley offers a bar and restaurant during the summer season only. Parking is available in our lot at an additional cost. Parking is provided on a first come, first serve basis as it is limited. The Berkeley prides itself on being a pet friendly hotel. Pet friendly rooms are offered on a designated floor at an additional cost. A complimentary coffee service is available daily from 7 AM to 11 AM for all overnight guests.
