The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We have young kids, so I often had to bother the staff. They were always quite helpful. We just had... More

One hard working lady you rock.... would see her at 5:30 am and sometime at 10:00 pm. I love Point Pleasant many fond memories. No traffic, Great food. Short walk to... More

Their private beach is perfect for people who don't like crowds. There is a very nice heated pool that is always clean and definitely kid friendly! The staff was extremely accommodating and... More
