3/5 Okay

Traveled with family
Liked: Staff & service
I was nervous about staying here after reading yelp reviews. I don't think it is worthy of 1 star. But it is a solid 3. It is an old hotel. And it is expensive for what it is. However, it is a block from the beach. The rooms are old... and could use an upgrade. But they're clean enough. There aren't reallly amenities at this hotel. It was October so I can't review on the pool. We wanted to stay at the Asbury Hotel but they had a 2 night minimum and Berkeley didn't. But for a similar price per night, there's no contest.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
Conveniently located near the boardwalk and music venues. Construction of area buildings very noisy. My room had a strong musty odor. On site parking astronomically priced considering off season!!!
