The bell hop Theo Brown was very friendly, Check in could have gone a little smoother, confusing parking situation, family members were confused as to which entrance to use, Hotel was beautiful and clean but be prepared to pay for extras

The location was great for a visit to the AP and adjacent boardwalks. The room had a great ocean view and the bed was comfortable. But, overall, the hotel was dark, dated and in need of general repair. The window in my room leaked rainwater. My general impression was that the hotel and staff rested on the laurels of Location...

very nice hotel. Cannot beat the location, right on the ocean and boardwalk. It could have a few other item-was lacking a few details. No booklet of anemities, local restaurants, area, etc. Could also use pens/paper for jotting notes. But front desk had list of restaurants and was very helpful. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Beds were really comfortable.

My wife and I just stayed at the Berkeley for two nights as part of a conference. We were very pleased with our stay. The hotel, which is about 90 years old, was the Berkeley-Carteret. It was the best hotel at the Jersey shore for almost 50 years. As Asbury Park declined, so did the hotel, going through a series...

It's an older classic Asbury Park Hotel with some more recent renovations. That said, some upgrades are still necessary to transform the hotel into a sparkling classic gem. The lobby is one of those areas that has received a renovation and is pleasing to the overall theme of classic with a polished look. My room which I shared with a...

Hotel is very nicely restored and maintained. Very friendly staff. An overall pleasant experience. The addition of food and drink availability is a needed upgrade. Great location. Town much improved and heading in the right direction.

I spent a night at The Berkely Oceanfront Hotel for my cousin's wedding reception and we had an absolute ball! We were greeted at our cars by a warm and friendly bellman named Theo Brown.

Great location, newly renovated, excellent service...a little issue with a leaking sink which we told the front desk about and they immediately addressed the concern. Rooms are spacious, renovations are not amazing...there are definitely some incomplete/quick finishes to the newly renovated rooms. Nice lobby, free coffee, cool vibe. Very friendly staff.

Booked hotel for a lot of money. Suppose to be a great place. It's really dirty, old and way passed it's prime. Wish I'd have looked at the pics on trip advisor first because I would have never booked this place. All the furniture is old. The clock/MP3 player is so old and out of date and didn't even work....

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
