We had a great stay at the Pelican Point! My family came in from PA and were very pleased with the accommodations. Close to the Boardwalk, beach and town. Rooms were very clean and staff were all very nice. Small refrigerator and microwave in the room. When I checked out, I had a few hours to wait for my train... More

We stayed in the 2 Bedroom Apt 7/22, 7/23, 7/24 - absolutely loved the place, very roomy for the six of us. Would like to have had a dresser in the second bedroom but wasn't a big deal breaker. Theresa and her family are super nice people - Thanks AJ for referring Cuzzins; pizza was awesome and their service was... More

Room was cleaned but had a terribly musty odor ... Not a bad place although we paid a lot for the weekend. But I guess that's what's normal at a beach motel in season. I would return with a room air freshened next time. Lol. Walking distance to beach....restaurants.

We recently stayed at the Pelican Point. It was a great motel. The rooms were clean and inviting. A microwave and refrigerator in the room was also a plus! It definitely had a "beachy" feel. The pool was clean and crystal clear. The patio table and chairs were nice and comfortable. The staff were all very friendly. Everyone was very... More

pelican point is #1 on tripadvisor so my boyfriend and I decided to stay for three nights mon-thurs. the place doesn't look great from the outside but it was clean, bright, and perfect for a quick trip. We could walk to the beach so easily and only $5 for a beach chair rental and $5 beach passes as well right... More

My husband and I, plus two children under the age of 5, stayed only one night during the week. The staff wasn't the friendliest. Our room only had a walk in shower, no tub so giving the kids a bath wasn't an option. The floors were tile made to look like wood. What ever they clean them with make them... More

I felt more like I was staying at a friends house than at a hotel. The hosts were accommodating and gracious. I shot down to Point Pleasant after work for a wedding. I got caught in horrendous traffic. I went down to the lobby and asked for directions to the venue. When I mentioned that I was going to walk... More

Point Pleasant is a beach town and this is a beach motel. That said, I am praising the Pelican Point Motel for it's cleanliness, and attention to detail. Recovering from Hurricane Sandy was difficult, I'm sure but they did and revamped the upstairs rooms as well. We slept comfortably and though the room was small, who spends time in their... More
