Not bad but not great. Staff was nice. The building was interesting. Rooms, felt and looked kind of neglected. Plugs didn't work. Thin walls. Could hear everything in all rooms around us and in hallway. As if they were in our room. But it was comfortable nonetheless. Once again, staff was great.

My wife and I, and our closest 150 friends, just got married at the Berkeley. From Theo at the door when we arrived to Robin at last call at the hotel bar, the staff was great. The main ballroom at the Berkeley is almost a hundred years old and other than the soundtrack, we felt like we were sharing a...

The outside looks better then the rooms themselves. Lobby looks great, room is not worth the price. Only one working light, no working TV. Ants on bathroom floor. Valet was great. Would not have to stay again.

Employees are very helpful and friendly. There was an issue where our room was taken because they overbooked, but Lisa upgraded our room for no additional cost. The room was very clean. Perfect hotel within walking distance of Wonder Bar, Stone Pony, and several other popular bars. Overall great stay

Stayed overnight with friends for my wife's birthday. The hotel was very clean and the customer service was exceptional. We are not willing to compromise on customer service and it seems that neither is the staff here. Unfortunately, we did not get everyone's name but here I will do my best. Upon entering, the bellhop Theo greeted us professionally and...

Downtown Theo Brown with the hook up! We had to change rooms and Theo came to our rescue. He was very courteous and a pleasure to talk to! He even told us about some events happening around town tonight. Thanks Theo!

I was at the hotel this past weekend for a large gathering of over 100 couples. The hotel was nice. The staff was friendly. Overall, it was very enjoyable. The other people in my group, whom i spoke to, felt the same way.

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
