Reviewed 29 November 2016

Very accommodating and helpful. The front desk, our parking attendant, everyone was thoughtful and friendly. We got in an hour early in time to make our appointment, and we had a beautiful of Asbury Park and the beach! We were able to walk everywhere and even could watch the sun come up over the water from our room. Very comfortable.

Ok for the price but the condition of the room was poor. Dresser didn't stay closed and had leather handles instead of knobs that were ripped off. Leather chair worn. Table tops water damaged. Shabby.

Great location, nice rooms but some attention to detail is in order. Got a suite for a weekend in Asbury Park. Reservation needed adjusting as the picture was of the room I requested but the description was of a double king room..not what I was seeking. Took a few emails and calls to sort this out ahead of my arrival....

My family and I just returned from a family wedding at the Berkeley Oceanfront. We had read some not so complementary reviews before we visited and had some concerns.

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
