Hotel Description
A primo address on the Jersey Shore a pool overlooking the waves and colorfully designed rooms all add to the appeal at the Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel steps from the Asbury Park boardwalk. It's clear from first glance that the eight-story Berkeley Oceanfront is one of Asbury Park's grande dames and once you're in one of the 238 rooms you'll notice the modern touches from docks for mp3 players to flat-panel TVs with premium cable channels. Wi-Fi is available for a fee. The boutique hotel's furnishings are fresh and lively with colors that call to mind the sand and sea. Pets are welcome. There's an outdoor pool overlooking the ocean as well as a pool table and a fitness room. The on-site eatery has indoor and poolside dining as well as room service. Parking is available for a fee and during the peak season from May through September is on a first-come first-served basis. Steps from the boardwalk the Berkeley Oceanfront has a privileged position next to the water. It puts you within walking distance of the shopping and dining opportunities at the Grande Arcade and rock concerts at the Stone Pony. Monmouth University is four miles north. For family fun Six Flags Great Adventure is 28 miles west. Newark Liberty International Airport is 46 miles north. our guests say the beachfront location is hard to beat at the Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel which has boutique hotel style and a laid-back vibe.

Poor - 1.0 out of 5

Anthony, Staten Island, visiting The Stone Pony Mon, 18 May 2015

Liked: The Halestorm concert at the Stone Pony was great. The crowd had a good mix of my age and teen future metal heads.
Disliked: I'm a 50 year old and I've been in great hotels and $40 a night motels. I must say I walked into the Berkeley and it looked like one of the scenes in the movie Titanic - the beautiful large rooms, great lighting, marble, couches all over. Then at check in time it was $30 more than expected. I booked this hotel because they claim to be 1/10 of a mile from the Stone Pony so having bad knees from sports my whole life, I booked the hotel because it looked great and the location. When I checked in the rude check in staff had better things to do other than their jobs, so I asked where could I park and was told on the phone that morning due to my situation they will have parking on site - well, wrong again, I had to park 3 blocks further from the Stone Pony. OK, I got into the elevator, got off on my floor and it was old - 1970 dark green rugs with damp smells, like an old bad movie. We opened the door and the room wasn't what the pictures looked like before I booked - half the lamps had dead light bulbs, the white bed spread had 3 huge stains on it when we pulled it off the bed, and we found a woman's pony tail rubber band in the sheets. Then the TV didn't work - when the repair guy showed up he said "um, you got a bad picture" and we can't fix it. Then he left, and under a chair I found a BMW car key, in view of anyone - that tells me my room was not cleaned, because my car key is worth $300 and I don't drive a BMW, so I was totally disgusted. I went down to the front desk and asked what time I could get a cup of coffee - the heavy set young man could tell I wasn't enjoying my stay and said to me "coffee gets here when it gets here" - so, my wife and I were standing at the checkout line and there was a senior citizen woman complaining about everything I went through with the guaranteed hotel parking, so this led me to believe that the Berkeley hotel and staff are full of crap - it's the old bait and switch. If anyone is looking to stay in Asbury, stay clear of this hotel. The sotry doesn't end there - I went to hand in my key and the front desk tried to charge me again. I paid cash, and got the receipt when I checked in thank God. Don't go there if you do put it on your card like I should have - because then I could have denied payment. And yes, they never came up to change the sheets - we both got tired of waiting and slept in the chairs and checked out at 7a.m.

Great hotel; wish parking didn't cost extra. Also for the price a complimentary beach pass would be nice. Seems Jersey wants to charge you for everything. Overall good hotel.

Liked: Impressive building; friendly staff.
Disliked: Pay extra to park.

Exceptional

Liked: The fast check in and the closeness to the beach. Being able to walk across the street and be on the boardwalk. They just redid the place a few years ago. My wife love the design. The room was clean and comfortable. We will be looking to see what the rate for the summer is.

Liked: The location. It is across the street from the boardwalk and the beach. Hotel is in need of renovation.
Disliked: The hotel put me in a dirty room initially looking out of the back of the hotel. I was there last year for $---, a large oceanfront room. I had to pay $--- for the dirty room, then an additional $40 to update to the oceanfront room that was pretty bad.
