Based on the hotel website and pictures we were very excited to stay at the Berkeley Oceanfront hotel. However I was extremely disappointed. The two positives were the friendly staff and the location of the hotel. Everything else left a lot to be desired.

Rooms were spacious. The bed and chairs inside the room had sand in it. The room is old and the sink clogs up. It wasn't what I expected. The picture looks better online. I wouldn't recommend this hotel. Front desk was excellent.

Expected better for the price they charged especially being in a new and improved Asbury Park. Bed had a lumpy mattress.

Had to call... 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
