                The rooms were nice and clean...great size as well. Nice staff, accommodating. The room was spacious and I thought the room key for power in the rooms is a great way to save energy. The Air Conditioning was on fill force, and adjustable. The last thing you want is to be hot in your room after a day at the beach. Overall, really nice looking and comfortable place. Great location as well.

                Parking lot was too small for such a large hotel...definitely not enough parking spaces in ration to the amount of rooms. My bill at checkout was less than what it appeared to be then what was charged to my credit card. I am going to call them and hope it can be adjusted to what my final bill was, because I would definitely stay there again. If the room rate is $199, I believe $250 is way more taxed than it needs to be.

                Great location right across the street from the beach/boardwalk. Asbury Park has finally come back from the neglect and decay that marked the 70's-90'S. This is the place to go if you want to avoid the typical jersey shore crowd/types. The Berkeley has almost been fully restored to its past glory. I say "almost" because they are still doing some work on it as of this writing. But go soon, because it won't be a well kept secret for long.

                The only two things I would say were a letdown..And this is minor stuff here, would be the following: We had rented a cube fridge to keep our 2 year old daughter's milk in overnight and it didn't work..The hotel refunded us the rental fee on that. Secondly, the elevators are currently undergoing some renovations. There was one which broke down while we were there..And one rickety number that looked like something out of a David Lynch film; lit with super low watt bulbs underneath blue plastic..Again, they're not done renovations yet, I get it.. But 40 watt bulbs in an old elevator?..Really? Why not just switch out the bulbs for higher wattage and ditch the blue plastic thingies..it would go a long way to reduce the creepy/unsafe factor. Other than that..No complaints

                8.2

                It was very humid in the room itself, more so even then outside and the a/c did not have a lot of control. A little more temperature control to would have made it more comfortable. Also an exhaust fan in the bathroom would help the room dry out a little more after showers because the room would stay wet for most of the day after someone showered in the morning. More towels would also be helpful.

              • Couple
                4.6

                The two employees working at the front desk didn't seem too knowledgeable. There was only one working elevator and there was a huge line of people waiting to go up to their rooms because everyone had just checked in. In the middle of the night, I woke up sweaty because the air conditioning didn't seem to be working. The shower didn't appear too clean. They offer "onsite" parking, however there is very limited spots which means that basically everyone that stays there has to park on the street and pay for parking.

                I paid good money to have a good view of the beach, but I got a side room with partial view of the ocean. There was no parking available at any time and then I was told I could park in the residential area, I parked on 6th ave and got a ticket for $54.00 because I was to close to the stop sign, I was not informed of such regulation by the hotel staff and there are no signs on the street that indicate such regulation which evidently is a state law, important information that should have been given to me by your staff, I only found out when asked a police officer.

              • Couple
                6.2

                Staff was very friendly and courteous.

                Air conditioning did not work properly. Thermostat set on Auto at 72 degrees, room cooled to 59 overnight.

                Location, location, location

                The air conditioning in the room malfunctioned and was unable to be turned off except for pulling off the faceplate--the room was 60 degrees by morning.....

                Location to beach and night life.laid back experience.elevators worked very well to top floor and a/c was very cold when needed. Complimentary coffee every morning in lobby. The pool area was nice and laid back with food and drinks available weekends.

                Your website said free parking, the staff at front desk said they charge $15 per day for weekends and $10 per day weekly. The room had problems; had to slam front door hard to close,heat lamp didn't work in bath,on last day we noticed small ants on end table and bath,one hook for bath towel was falling off bath door. Bathroom could have been cleaned better for first day in room.

                Closeness to the beach

                Bad Parking situation I had to pay $20 a day to have someone park my car on the other side of the hotel, I would be perfectly capable of doing that for free. Also Elevators were slow

              • Family with children
                5.0

                Very noisy. People yelling in the halls and slamming doors til 3 A.M. both nights.

              • Couple
                5.0

                The location is convenient to the beach.

                The front desk staff person during the day was very rude and short. There was extensive construction going on but no notice to any of the customers; an alarm went off for 10 minutes one morning because the construction set it off. Although it was close to the beach and the beach is obviously the main draw to this old and poorly designed hotel, the hotel does not feel the need to offer beach passes, towels, or any convenient beach utilities. The decoration of the hotel is extremely offensive and unattractive. Asbury Park in general is a bad place to visit; the surrounding town is rundown and the boardwalk is short with no good restaurants or fun activities.

                Basically everything, the pool was relaxing the staff was friendly and I love the stuffed olives ;)

                The bed was to hard

                10.0

                I really thought this hotel was just beautiful. The decor is very retro chic and inviting. I thought it was really clean and I really enjoyed how comfortable my room was to be in. It was quiet and located so close to the beach and Stone Pony I was very happy.

                The Tv reception was really bad but I didn't much care .

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                the location to the ocean and boardwalk is ideal if you are going for a getaway to asbury park. not a lot to do right in asbury park so a weekend to 3 days is a max time unless you are just using asbury park as home base and you go to other parts of jersey and come back for the night to asbury park.

                parking is a bit tricky

              • Older travelers
                4.6

                This is the worst hotel, we've ever stayed at. The place is run down w/one working elevator for 8 floors. The front desk staff is rude & nasty. People were complaining all over the lobby. Have no idea how they stay in business.
