    the staff was friendly. the design of the rooms and the lobby is nice.

    the heat was not working the night of my stay. it was set at the highest setting and the room was still quite cold. the parking lot is around the back of the hotel but the only entrance is in the front. it'd be nice to be able to get into the building from the parking lot.

    The Delphin Grille was deliocious! Definately recommend it for dinner. Also you can bring your dog big or small.

    The elevators need some work as well as the pool area. This could be a fabulous hotel with a little extra renovation.

    Spacious rooms, some have a nice beach view.

    Overall the hotel/room was quite good, no serious complaints. However, the absence of a minibar was a bit surprising.

    We always get an ocean view room-we just really like the off season at asbury.Great view and sound of waves.Walking distance to everything we like.Staff has always been courteous and helpful-every time.Rooms very nice,spacious and comfortable.The lounge/grille came out good.Would not try another place.Looking forward to our next stay already.Sincerely yours,Berkeley customers Johnny & Julie.

    This is really not a dislike at all. No fault of the hotel or staff but our adjoining room group was very loud.No way we could relax-Asked for different room which was granted right away.Not a big deal but shower soap/shampoo dish and toilet paper hanger were broken off and window sill needs repainting[738].We've stayed now 4-5 times since remodeling was done-always been real nice and this was no big deal/just wanted to make a mention.[ re-do parking lot would be nice ].

    Wonderful encounters with all of the musicians and fellow music fans who were staying at the hotel! The musicians all seemed to be relaxed and enjoying their stay, and were very gracious and friendly when approached politely by fans. ... We also liked the lovely sitting area, desk, chairs and lamps in our room. ... The breakfast buffet was very nice, and fairly priced. The hotel should advertise it more -- not too many customers there.

    There was no towel rack in our bathroom. It's probably just a design element we're just not used to, but it bothered us a lot. We didn't know what to do with the slightly damp towels we wanted to use again. ... There also was just one tiny wastepaper basket, located in the bathroom. Could definitely use another one in the bedroom area. ... We couldn't figure out how to get the heat off; I think the `cold/medium/hot' knob didn't work right. By morning, it was quite stifling, but we just threw open the window and forgot to mention it to management.

    The restaurant was very good for dinner. Nice location and close to Asbury Park.

    No heating, weird decor, outdated fixtures and disappointing continental breakfast.

    The room was very modern and spacious. We loved the decorations. The staff was polite & inviting. The hotel had a unique design with a very nice garden area and it really gave the feeling of warmth and thoughtfulness with the guest in mind. I felt like I was in Europe with a beach outside!! :-)

    If I had to pick one negative, it would be the parking. I'm sure that's been said before. There needs to be a direct line to the back parking area from the hotel that would make it less difficult to move luggage.

    It's close to our children and we can walk on the boardwalk.

    They refused to honor our stay three nights and get the fourth night free!

    We booked very last minute on Booked.net and were very surprised at how nice the hotel was! Its HUGE and really nice....we were there for only one night as we spent Sat and Sun on the beach in Long Branch with friends, this was very convienient as it was only about 5 miles from Pier Village in Long Branch.

    The location is perfect and the rooms are clean and contemporary.

    I had a very negative experience with the front desk staff. I called the front desk to let them know that the shower was backed up in my room. My partner and I had not yet taken showers and had dinner reservations in 1 hour. Maintenance was quickly sent up, but 10 minutes later with a dirty plunger and a tub still filled with now filthy water, I called back to see if I could be placed in another room. Although the hotel was not fully booked, I was told it would cause "disorganization" to move me. I requested a call back from the manager and did not receive one. It was not until I stood at the front desk in my towel that a very nice gentleman (Justin?) handed me the key to the room NEXT DOOR to me!! Suddenly not a problem....
