The website photos are not what you see when entering the hotel. It looks much better online. Our room was dated and in need of some TLC. Old wallpaper peeling, outlets that didn't work, lights didn't work. Staff was very friendly and room was clean. Pull-out sofa was a joke - not useable at all.

Took over one hour to check in. Was given a room that wasn't cleaned. Door lock card didn't work. These items were totally unacceptable!!!
I expected more from a hotel of thia caliber. I'm sad to say that I was deeply disappointed.

The overall experience from NO parking to a 45 minute wait to check in was so bad. The T V in the room is out dated and no cablevision. The rooms were dirty and no soap in the bathroom. Over all just a bad experience. Will never go back to the Jersey Shore again because of this hotel.

I stayed at the Berkeley last weekend for the long branch half marathon on sunday. When we arrived we found out that there was no longer valet parking and our only other option was to pay for meter parking which we had to re-load every 3 hours until 12am. It was pouring rain and I had to run out and pay the meter all night long. After finding parking no where near the hotel, we waited on line to check in for 50 minutes without any assistance or explanation. The hotel was well aware that there was a huge race going on the next day in long branch however, there was limited staff-maybe 2 or 3 people to check in. Just when we thought the wait couldn't get worse, one of the employees took our luggage cart because "someone else needed it" leaving us with a pile of bags to manage. The room was old, dirty, stained sheets and brown, hard towels. At checkout, the computers did not work and I could not get a receipt. Needless to say, we could not wait to get out of there and will not be returning.

Back in the early 70's I heard people say that the Berkeley was outdated. I figured things must have improved by now. It was disappointing. The halls and room smelled musty and there was a scent of cigarret smoke. The room was very small. No fridge and no hair dryer. Our view consisted of a shorter roof. It was full of gravel and puddles. Very depressing. The front desk was horribly understaffed and slow. We used the valet service but when it came to retrieve the car there was at least ten groups waiting and 2 men working. Then the next time we used car service we had to go to the front desk to get our keys so we were forced to wait on line with people checking in and out and when it was finally our turn the staff member seemed to have no idea where to find our keys so there another delay. The thermostat in the room wasn't working. The room was either cold or too hot. I was glad we were only there one night.
