Hotel bed and shower were great. The rest of the room needs to be upgraded. Not enough outlets or lighting. Location was great. Not enough staff; bar/lounge was lacking in staff and liquor. The housekeeping staff was less than attentive, promised towels, etc; but never delivered, skipped making up room one day. The restaurant service was ridiculous. Never ate there,...

Hotel was clean, check in was super late. Water didn't drain in the shower well, but overall not a bad stay at all. Staff is extremely friendly. Last thing, you can hear a lot of the guests that are staying on your floor while trying to sleep in the AM

First time visiting Asbury Park for a bachelor party. Hotel is very luxurious and hotel staff was polite and helpful. Rooms were immaculate and spacious! The only parking that was available was street parking, luckily Alvine helped us out with that! Definitely staying here next time I am in Asbury.

The hotel is in a great area and has a very nice appearance, but our room had one towel, the shower didnt work, the faucet in the sink broke off in our hand. The iron didn't work. The phone didn't work so we had to go down to the desk to tell them each problem. There was no hair dryer....

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
