Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Asbury Park
Reviewed July 5, 2014

The hotel was nice- the room was large. the lobby was clean, but there were a few things that were missing.
No cups in the bathroom
only one garbage can
the desk clerk should have given more info about the place.we did not know there was a pool.
This website should have told me parking was extra and beach passes not included.
Coffee in the AM was very weak
The employees were VERY NICE. very helpful when I asked the questions.
The store was gross, but does reflect in my opinion of the hotel.
LOVE THE AREA!!
GOT A GREAT PRICE!

Room Tip: if you like ice- there are only ice machines on even floors- but dogs stay on 4th floor

Great hotel and room! Clean, spacious and comfortable! Close to beach and all night life. Had a great time both times I stayed there. Check in could be smoother, and there were some problems with the elevators my last day. But otherwise thoroughly enjoyable.

Overall it was fine, minus a few glitches. The desk clerk could have more friendly and more knowledgeable about the terms of our reservation. The young man at the door was outstanding, friendly, and very helpful.

Berkeley is a good value for the price. WiFi, however, should be free. Rooms are spacious with good views. Not a bad hotel for an older property. All in all a good place to stay if you're going to visit the Jersey shore in North Jersey.

Very clean and attractive hotel with friendly staff, though a bit disorganized. Great location near the beach and boardwalk and a good value overall. Outside pool was nice but service seemed understaffed.

The check-in process involved a long wait. Our keys did not work requiring additional wait time to receive new keys. The hotel room had no toilet paper (pretty disheartening considering the rates of the hotel). The next morning involved several disruptions in sleep from screaming children in the hallway.

Cons: No one could check in until almost 5pm.

The walls of the rooms are paper thin, which is a huge bummer when there's a massive party in the next room. The building is very cool, but it wasn't built to be a luxury hotel.

Pros: Hotel management broke up the party.
