"Great location but..."
The location, lobby, room size, and decor were all wonderful. Crummy TV reception and no premium programming available, no free wifi anywhere. Very disappointing for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A grand hotel of yesteryear"
I'm a bit partial because we had our wedding there 25 years ago. It was clean and accommodating. Its obvious that its an old place but to me it adds character. We spent our 25th wedding anniversary there. My only complaint is the beds do not have fitted sheets. Outside of that service, room, cleanliness were all good. I would recommend it as a place […] to stay when visiting the area. Great location Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
A/C did not work. Rooms were small. Two spiders in the room. A glass bottle broke by the pool and when when I advised staff of the broken bottle the gave me a broom and a dust pan and asked me to clean it up. Checked out same day I checked in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location on the boardwalk. Comfortable room with good view of the ocean. It would be nice if there was valet parking available. Not sure if it wasn't available due to a wedding there that evening. The bar could use some sprucing up, but it was nice to have it available and the bartender was friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It would have been better if we had a microwave but I truly did enjoy our stay. Thank you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"i should had stayed all week"
hotel was close to boardwalk & beach ... staff very helpful with info on things to do i look forward to going backGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Amazing stAff very helpful and courteousGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Way Better Than Expected"
I am still shocked this is a 3 star rating. IMO its at least 3.5 Clean, pretty, well located and reasonable. The only issue is that it is not oceanfront. There is a vacant building in front of it and a street. The nave is deceiving. Easy access to the beach though. It was particularly convenient to see a concert at the Stone Pony and walk! Asbury Park […] has its seedy areas, but the boardwalk is clean, full of restaurants and shops. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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
"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
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
"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
"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.

"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
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
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
Very nice convenient locationGenuine Hotels.com 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
"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
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
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
This was our third stay here. Is it a 5 star hotel? No, but it is a nice hotel right across the street from the beach and boardwalk. The whole area is being revitalized, so it is not on a decline but an incline. Front desk not the best, except for one guy. Maintenance always says "hi" and manager? goes around pool asking if all is good. Tiki bar and […] restaurant are only open Fri, Sat, Sun. but I think this may be due to Sandy, which hit the area pretty hard. Cookman Ave. has tons of restaurants, stores, ect, boardwalk food is generally overpriced. New condos down the street....I love this place!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Quick check in. Great stay...convenient to restaurants, boardwalk, beach, Stone Pony (where we went to a concert). I do think that it's a bit ridiculous that they charge $20 on top of your room fee for parking. The next day, we went up the street to a lot and it was $5 for the entire day!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The previous negative reviews made us a little leary . Overall we had a nice time and the location is nice , close to the boardwalk and the ocean . The foyer is very elegant . The employees were friendly and nice .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to the beach"
parking was inconvenient w a 20.00 a day fee through the hotel but not enough parking spaces so I had to park on the street and was a slave to the meter. also no coffee maker or mini frig in room. Place seemed a little dated even though it was clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice short walk to boardwalk"
Clean rooms, Short walk to boardwalk, Very Helpful front desk staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and Convenient"
Overall, this was a nice place to stay. Shower was a little weird. It had a fixed glass door (meaning you can't slide it back and forth) that was on the side of the water faucet and shower head was on. So, basically you had to get into the shower in order to turn on the water. Makes it a bit uncomfortable until you get the water temperature where you […] want it to be. They also seem to have the slowest elevators I have ever encountered. Other than that, everything was good, and I'd probably book again in the future. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Everything went great but the AC…"
My girlfriend I went to the Berkeley Oceanfront hotel back in I believe late June. I'm not a picky person and I'm easily satisfied. Honest opinion about the hotel, I really liked it. Our room was clean the bed was soft and big the view was amazing. Only thing that I wasn't Happy about was that the AC was broken. the night we slept over it was really […] humid and hot and not having an AC really really really made it tough. But with a cold shower and opening the windows with that seabreeze we got through it. We told the front desk about a AC they said it was going on through most of the hotel which I was kind of bummed out about because I paid a decent price for it. Besides the AC problem, I would Definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
