I live locally and have always wanted to stay at the Berkeley because I love hanging out in Asbury Park. I made a last minute reservation for a wedding and unfortunately we were probably given the last room in the hotel. It overlooked a parking lot and the air conditioner for the whole hotel which hummed all night. It was not relaxing at all. For $170 a night in the fall, my sister payed the same price and had an ocean view.
Also, there was no hot water in the middle of the night and the front desk was very rude when I asked about getting hot water. Just wanted to take a shower, but the front desk seemed appalled that I would suggest that.
It is probably a great hotel, but if you are imagining waking up in a quiet room to a beautiful ocean view just make sure you know what room you are getting.
