this hotel is in a great location, and that is the only thing it has going for it. the cliental is a mix of young adults in their early to mid 20s, over drinking, throwing up in the halls, rooms that need to be aired out, and inadequate parking.i've got three words for you, don't do it.

The hotel is amazing and the staff at the front desk is great and attentive. The beds were comfortable and the sheets were decent. I thought the room could use a few more amenities (coffee maker, a refrigerator). But my stay was very pleasant and it was an overall positive experience.

The rooms were nice enough; however, the breakfast buffet was pretty terrible, as was the condition of the room where the buffet was set up. The ceiling is stained and destroyed from leaking water and the room looks outdated and in need of a complete overhaul. There appears to be a shortage of staff as they are not prepared for... More

Hotel is great location and clean. Nice rooftop deck to lay out on and pool on the ground. Across the street from the beach. Rooms are slightly small but clean and beds are comfortable which is more important to me. Staff was friendly. Parking is $25 a day which hurts a little.

We don't go to the Berkeley because they have the most comfortable bed or softest towels or the highest resolution televisions. We go to the Berkeley because the place exudes character. From the ballrooms that bring you back to pre prohibition Era or the 70s pop feel of the guest rooms, the Berkeley makes us feel like we are staying... More

Stay away if you have allergies! Difficult to escape the smell of mold and mildew. This is not just the mustiness of an old hotel – there are active water problems here. Very overpriced given the limited amenities. There is a "per device" charge for Wi-Fi, there were only fuzzy analog channels available on the TV (and even to get... More

Rooms were clean and comfortable but with NO extras like a coffee maker, refrigerator & microwave. Restaurant and bar and complimentary coffee were only available on the weekends. When we called to inquire about hotel parking we were informed it was a first come first serve basis. When we arrived we were blindsided that the fee to park was $25... More

The staff was courteous & friendly, the location is great. However the rooms can use a bit more attention to detail when it comes to cleanliness. I stay in AP every summer, all summer, this is first time staying at the Berkeley...and most likely will be my last.

First time with this hotel and will be the last. The staff were great overall.... nice, professional and helpful. But the cons outweighed the pros. The were hardly any room outlets and some of them weren't working properly. Parking is expensive and first come first serve so get there super early. Check in time is at 4pm which seems late...

The rooms need updating. Corridors are dark and need more lighting. Rooms should have hotel information, if not a booklet, a page with location of pool, restaurant, bar, soda machines, business center, etc. Bathrooms should be updated. Our sink was updated, but the faucet was so close to the bottom of the sink, that it was impossible to put you... 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. 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. For questions or concerns, please reach out to the email provided on our general information page. ... more   less
