I was greeted by extremely nice and helpful staff who made my weekend stay spectacular! I'd especially like to thank Theo Brown for helping my friends and I move a zillion bags in and out of the rooms! The bachelorette party for my friend was GREAT!

Don't expect to get any sleep at this hotel. People are partying and screaming in the hallway at all hours of the night. Staff doesn't seem to care about it. Couples fighting and kids partying until 330-4am. Called down to the front desk twice about the issue but nothing seemed to happen. It was a floor of all college kids...

We were dealing with an event and Berkeley and Sofia was WONDERFUL. Ron at the desk was so helpful and Theo the bellman was more than you could ask for. Everyone on the staff was exceptional We could not have asked for more. Can't wait to go back

The Berkeley combines a lovely retro architectural feel with all the conveniences of a modern newer hotel. With rooms overlooking the ocean, it is truly an exciting setting for a Jersey shore experience! With a respectful staff willing to help at every turn, the Berkeley is definitely a class act!

I was visiting Asbury Park from out of state with my girlfriend. Upon arriving to our room, it was discovered that the room had only been partially cleaned(the bathroom had not been). So we called the front desk to have someone come clean it. We left for dinner and after getting back, we realized the toilet wasn't flushing or working...

We were here in March for a large group event. The staff was top notch, particularly the banquet staff. The rooms were well appointed and the location, although it was the off-season and we didn't spend much time outside, was wonderful with it's ocean view and proximity to destinations in town.

Front desk double charged my roommate. They also embarrassed him by vocalizing that his card was declined when it was actually their ineptitude that created the situation. The man was very nonchalant and unapologetic about it. Same guy was asked if water could be sent to the practice space and he absolved himself of the responsibility claiming that it wasn't...

Have been coming to this hotel for years for an annual conference. Each year seems to have its own challenges. This year the room lacked several basic amenities - no glasses, ice bucket, clock/radio, working tv remote, working closet doors. Seems as though when a large group is expected that rooms should be double checked to make sure they are...

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
