"Nice hotel but parking issues"
The hotel was good, pool clean, rooms cozy( the curtains made the rooms pitch black during daylight, awesome.) Parking was the issue. Because of limited hotel parking it is based on first come, first serve otherwise it is street meter parking. If you park car for two days you can't move car for two days. When I made reservation that was not explained […] to me. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"it could be better"
It could be better if the staff was more helpful with the luggage and if the rooms had minibar fridge or at least a coffee makerGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location but very few amenities included. Must pay to park - must pay for internet - no breakfast on weekdays (nothing much close for breakfast). Stayed 3 days - room wasn't made up the first day but after that, when we needed help, someone came quickly. Overall, it was a good place to be near the boardwalk and beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I enjoyed myself especially swimming in the outdoor pool. Staff were helpful especially front desk clerk Andrea. But why don't you offer beach passes, beach chairs, and a light breakfast>Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Was just okey"
Location is close to the beach, other than that it was just okey. Sheet had someone s hair n no coffee in the room. I could hear music from outside of hotel at night couldnt sleep well. Disappointed for our family vacation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"First time visit"
For the accommodations, we felt the price was a bit high. Deluxe room was smaller than I am accustomed to and needs some updating. Very clean accommodations. Hotel pool is conveniently located on site. Hotel staff were wonderfully accommodating when asked about local activities. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
i enjoyed every second, the neighborhood the view the stay...everything was greatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice hotel- rooms are renovated and relatively clean and very comfortable. Internet and parking charges are annoying and somewhat petty.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was great overall.. Front desk staff seemed overwhelmed by the check in process. Rooms were't ready when we checked in for 4 hours.. HOWEVER, Mark in the Valet and the ENTIRE Valet staff were amazing.. Completely made my stay and made me feel like I was the only guest! Not only were they great with my car and a tricky parking job (my boyfriend […] had his truck with a trailer.. and he was 'crabby' about having to find a space for it.. ), they answered any questions about the area, places to go, etc. They were great with my kids (4 boys) . I honestly would stay there again based on THEIR services! No joke! ;-) I do hope this email gets to them as I know people tend to complain more than they compliment.. But their attitudes were the best! Thank you! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Pretty Solid All Around"
We enjoyed it. Housekeeping skipped us a few times, and the front desk didn't seem to be very knowledgable about the city (didn't know how to buy beach tickets or family-friendly restaurants). The location is hard to beat though, and a beautiful hotel, especially given how affordable it can be. We'd definitely go back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Short but sweet. Very comfy."
The beach was closed down so it was nice to have the option to stay at the hotel pool. Yet when the beach reopened it was half a block away and convenient to get to.Genuine Expedia guest review
Rooms were big but housekeeping was poor. Some days no one stopped by. There was a water outage on one day for several hours. Staff was unfriendly and appeared unhappy. Location on the beach was the biggest plus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I want to love this place, but..."
This was our second time at the hotel. We went back because the location is great and the price is right. Sadly, there really needs to be better management. The man at check in was slumped over and barely acknowledged us as he clicked at his computer screen. The elevators are dirty and our bathroom had ants. The window casements are all cracked too […] giving an overall dilapidated atmosphere. We were so depressed by it, we left after one night even though we had paid the non-refundable fee for the second night. It's a shame because a full service hotel right by the beach is hard to come by in that area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was nice and clean but ridiculously over priced. The location is awesome it's a block from the beach and everything is in walking distance but for the price of the rooms you think parking would be included or continental breakfast. The pool could use some work on but aside from that it was a very nice place my only complaint is the parking […] and no breakfast. They only have breakfast on the weekends which you think it'd be the other way around but no. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not bad for a spur-of-the-moment trip"
We stayed for one night just to see what Asbury Park was all about. The hotel is old, but very characteristic. A little dated, but it was clean, and the service was fine. Only complaint is that the window was screwed shut. We'd stay again. Very cool that we were right across the street from the beach and the Convention Center.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Review Berkeley Hotel, Asbury Park, NJ"

"Clean and near the beach"
I've stayed here several times- it's clean and very convenient to the beach! The gift shop is super expensive so don't shop there unless u have to. Staff was polite and I got a free upgrade :) the price is good to for a place so close to the beachGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Our family really enjoyed our stay. Couldn't be closer to the beach and boardwalk. The neighborhood is dicey in spots but up and coming. Most of the staff were polite and efficient but didn't seem to know much about the area - they couldn't tell us how to buy beach tickets or a family-friendly restaurant nearby. One of the days we stayed housekeeping […] didn't come so we didn't have towels or cups and the trash was full. Would like the pool to be warmer and the on-site restaurant to be open during the week (currently only open weekends). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was full yet it was very quiet. The location is great, you can walk to the entire Asbury Park and Ocean Grove areas. The staff were friendly and helpful. Here's a little hint about parking. If you arrive at noon and check in at 3pm most likely you can find a space right near the hotel. Pay $10 for the rest of the day (9pm), Then park overnight […] in that spot for free and the next day at 9am, pay $10 for the whole day. You can walk to everything and beyond, so give your chariot a break. The hotel charges $20 a day for their parking as well. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean place, Staff is very polite, we were allowed to check in earlier.Genuine Expedia guest review
"let's b honest"
Asbury Park is not as polished as a lot of Jersey shore towns, nor is it a rowdy, party vibe. It's family friendly with clean beaches and Amazing Food on a beautiful boardwalk. The Berkeley is a great hotel, convenient to it all. It's not fancy, but it's clean, well staffed and comfortable. $10 a day for internet is ridiculous and cheapen's the exp […] erience.

"Glamorous Old Hollywood for a Song!"
I won't tell you my room number (King size bed, ocean view) because I want to stay there again and I won't be able to do so if you book it. It was like walking into a magazine - glamorous, high ceilings and spacious with a view of the ocean and the pool. The staff was really friendly and though the hotel has some shortcomings, they helped me with a […] courteous attitude and made my stay very affable. Now the down-sides: no cable programming (HBO or Showtime) No room-service (good free coffee in the a.m. in the lobby) and no restaurant in the hotel at all. There are plenty of yummy things to eat (before 10pm) on the Boardwalk, however. Very reasonable rates, not fully three star yet and the elevators are slow and quirky. Overall, I'd book it again because the staff will do whatever they can with a smile to help you over the bumpy stuff. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Old Style Comfort"
Perfect for our wish list. Beautiful ocean views, clean and no pretence.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best Value Going for a Shore Vacation"
Great Room overlooking the Asbury Park Board walk in a beautifully renovated , old hotel. I love Asbury Park and the Berkeley is always my family's first choice for a place to stay. Close to everything you want to do in Asbury Park and nearby Ocean Grove, Bradley Beach, and Long Branch.All are a stone's throw away. You won't find a better value for […] this level of quality for miles. Book it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Jersey Shore's Best Kept Secret"
Our favorite place on the Jersey Shore, The Berkeley is the one redeeming location within Asbury Park. We've done every type of vacation here - family ones, romantic getaway & couples vacations - and it's a perfect spot for everything. Better value than Deal & less busy than the rest of the Jersey Shore. The hotel is seconds from the beach & boardwalk […] life, there's free parking on the street & great customer service all around. We're fans for life. Highly recommended! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice hotel. They've done a lot to improve it. Pretty and simple. Cant beat location for music, food and beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved our stay! My Aunt, dogs, and I stayed for 1 night, and it was great! Staff was friendly and helpful. The location is really great, across the street from the Boardwalk, walking distance to eveything.Genuine Expedia guest review
Staff was very helpful, went above and beyond what I expected. Great place to stay. One thing I did not like was the showers, they are mondern I guess but very odd.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My expectations s were a bit higher. I should have researched the area a bit more. Asbury park is definitely under renovation. There is opportunity for developers to recreate the 50's charm this area once had. The hotel needs work. I would return after it is remodeled. It can be a charming place.. Make sure you inquire about parking as all parking in […] front of the hotel is pay parking. You will also have to buy beach permits.. Truth be told we probably won't vacation at the Jersey shore again.. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Berkeley gave us an early check-in for free, and after our stay was over, the staff checked our bags at no cost while we were at the beach. The mezzanine is pretty slick, and the pool and lobby areas are trendy and spacious. The elevators were very slow, and I wished there were more obvious signs to the stairs. I was disappointed with the condition […] of the furniture in the room. The window was very dirty, obscuring the ocean view. A leather handle on the dresser was ripped in two pieces. Spackle had been dripped on the legs of a console. Lots of the furniture had scuff marks. None of these things were really disrupting to the stay, but they made me wonder why no one was paying attention to these details, and why the staff wasn't fixing them. There was a similar lack of attention to detail in the public spaces. I also wish there had been more Asbury Park pamphlets in the public spaces. There were lots of pamphlets for surrounding towns and even NYC, but no Asbury Park. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Quick overnight stay"
I am a Jersey girl so I've been to a lot of the shore towns. We stayed at the Berkley overnight since we were going to a concert at the Stone Pony that evening. I was very pleased with the hotel! It was a nice surprise to see a full service hotel in a town with lots of small shore motels. I would definitely stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel and staff were great..however it was disappointing to not have the restaurant and bar opened during our stay during the week. Also small refrigerators in the rooms without cost would go far for its desired place of stay..Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Looks are decieving"
The hotel is beautiful. Parking is additional and not guaranteed. The beds and pillows are not comfortable. There is no coffee service available in the rooms or lobby.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not quite oceanfront"
The location was a block away from the beach. Paid valet or self metered street parking. We checked in and these was sand in the bathtub and someones random strands of curly hair that was left behind by someone wiping down the surfaces. Quality of service was great if you ever called for something, someone would respond within less than 5 minutes. Good […] and bad is that they allow pets, great for people with pets BUT beware, owners that leave their pets in the room alone tend to bark uncontrollably, which means you have to call hotel security to track down the owner to come back to the room and calm down their pets, possibly resulting in little to no sleep for someone in the same corridor as the pet.

"awesome place to stay."
Great location, great service, helpful staff. The only complaint was that the checkout time was 11AM. It seemed a little early, however, i don't stay in hotels often so I don't have a reference for comparison.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just needs a few tweaks"
Can't beat the location. Staff was very nice and friendly. Room was comfortable. But...upon entering room I felt like the bathroom counter could have used another wipe down. Was surprised there was no in-room safe, nor was there a hair dryer. Hotel just needs a few tweaks and it could easily be a 5 star hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"i had a good time"
good view on the beach . the staff were very respectfulleGenuine Expedia guest review
"Love this place !"
Excellent location, friendly staff, clean room. I didn't mind the $20 parking fee, as it safe and secure, and would have cost the same at a meter. Limited food & bev, make other arrangements. Nice pool to chill at after the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The Best Location - But needs some TLC"
I've stayed at the hotel several times - you can't beat the location. It's a 10 out of 10. However, prepare to be less than enthused with the facilities, amenities (or lack thereof). The rooms are decent - but service and the rest of the facilities are worn, tagggered and in dire need of updating and refinement.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable, updated hotel near beach"
Hotel updated recently but showing signs of wear, generally. Hotel maintenance not well taken care of. In rooms, burn marks on sheets, rust on bathroom door frames, smells in corridors and rooms. Pillows in rooms are not plush and not comfortable, windows do not close properly, very drafty, noisy. Dirty windows, cobwebs.Genuine Expedia guest review
Stayed in a single room with a King bed. Lobby smells a little, could just be because of the dogs. The windows wouldnt open. The shower lost water pressure completely when I was halfway through shampooing my head lol but it came back in a minute. Weird lime green chairs and mirror that was 7 feet off the ground so only a giant could use it. Nice bed […] though. 3 stars Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wish it was better"
The thing that keeps this place alive is it is one of only two hotels in the area. The desk staff is slow and not helpful, check in is difficult. The rooms are tolerable but could all use a good refresh. The doors to the rooms when closed still have gaps which coupled with thin walls makes for not much quiet in the rooms when trying to sleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to beach and restaurants"
very relaxing and enjoyable stay. The room was clean and nice views of ocean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was beautiful and almost finished being redecorated. My two issues were one, no evident place to get coffee in the morning (none in the room!) and two, some disturbing blackish stuff in the AC/heat duct. The windows, fortunately, opened and we could enjoy ocean air instead. There are lots of nice restaurants 2-3 blocks away on the boardwalk, […] or 6-8 blocks away downtown.

"Very Good Shore Spot"
We were pleasantly surprised by the large ocean-view room and updated furnishings in this older hotel. It is very convenient to the beach and boardwalk and has a decent pool. The hotel has been mostly renovated, but there are still some areas that need upgrading and maintenance. Also, it would be nice to have a spot for breakfast close by. The hotel […] restaurant is only open on the weekends. Overall, though, it's a great place for a few days at the Jersey shore. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Big hotel is not always better"
The room was comfortable, had a nice ocean view. The bathroom, however, was too mall. The shower head was too comlicated to figure out, and the sink did not drain well. Also, the room did not have a refrigerator for all the money they charged you. I was stunned that there was no free parking for the hotel guests.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Location is good"
Valet parking is not needed-parking must be free! Shouer worked badly, and, with a very fancy lobby rooms are poorly maintained. For the service the price is too high, the staff is not well coordinated-they valet guys had no idea that we would keep our car after the checkout and ladies at the front desk were not sure either.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was a gr8 stay it's in a very good location it's right next to the Beach, Broad walk, etc.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
