The deluxe room had a good amount of space for 4 adults and one toddler. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The hotel was pretty and a great location. Super fun even off season.

Dog friendly and on the ocean. Bed was comfortable. The common areas were not kept up, empty bottles on the deck weren’t moved for two days, a half full glass of liquor was outside the entrance on the ground for three. A broken piece of cement was used as a doorstop on the observation deck. Lobby and elevators had a sewer odor. When I checked in the receptionist literally said, “payment and ID.” Not even a hello. The valet attendants should hold open the front door for guests if they are standing there, and not be in the public view texting every day. $600 in taxes and fees for a four night stay excessive. It is as if they know they have the location to be booked full most summer nights and don’t even try to lure guests back.

Great location to the boardwalk and shops. Hotel parking is $45 during the summer season, but off street parking is available for much less. The hotel staff were very friendly and went out of there way to assist us getting settled in. The hotel is a little older, but I found the rooms very spacious with great views of the ocean and boardwalk.

Very friendly and helpful staff throughout the property! However, the hotel was full of very loud children and teenagers - and furthermore, we were placed in a room directly next to the elevators on the 7th floor. Why would the hotel not place us, a couple traveling by themselves, AWAY from the noisy and loud groups..perhaps in a corner of a floor away furthest away?? The hallways were VERY loud due to the school and college groups, and noisy conversations at the elevator *right outside our door* made the situation worse. Further, there was no information in the room... i.e., when and where is breakfast, channel guide, WiFi access & password..there wasn't even a pad and pen in the room! The front desk kindly sent me a text message with the above information, but that info should be available in every room without a special request and checking my phone in the middle of the night. Last, the continental breakfast was not at all worth the $10 per person that the hotel charges. We've had much better continental breakfast for free at a chain hotel.

We arrived and the room while clean didn't have heat or hot water, called the desk and asked to switch rooms. They sent a maintenance man who was very courteous and professional. He provided us with an electric heater and actually got the hot water working after awhile. The room should have been ready for winter business and wasn't. Parking cost me another $25.00 and that bill appears as a $75.00 charge on my credit card. Not recommending The Berkeley anytime soon.

Hello and thank you for your review. It is never our intention for our guests to leave dissatisfied. The hotel does stay full throughout the summer months, so every winter we go into every room for a full maintenance over haul to freshen up the vents, filters, painting, caulking, carpet extraction just to name a few items. We are sorry that you experienced this and did not receive your room type, we do always try to accommodate everyone's room request.
