Overall this hotel is OK. We would only stay again if nothing else was available. Great location. Close to boardwalk (2 block walk). Front desk staff very nice and responsive to requests. Didn't use pool but looked nice. Our issue is that all photos show renovated rooms, but many of them are not updated. We were on second floor in... More

Stayed here for LaborDay weekend so naturally the cost was going to be higher. I've never stayed in a "motel" before and I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were renovated and nice. Nothing fancy. Clean with nice amenities. Parking was fine and service was good. It was a 5-7minute walk to the Boardwalk and Beach so you you cannot beat... More

What a great place to stay. I have been to many motels at the Jersey Shore but this is by FAR the best one. The place is very clean and the host A.J. was the most helpful owner I have ever come across. Myself and 7 friends booked 2 rooms the weekend of 8/8-8/10/14. We are 27 years old but... More

Within walking distance of the beach, boardwalk and amusements. Rooms were clean and the added microwave and fridge was an added bonus. On site pool was comfortable and clean. The best part was there are no hidden fees. We stayed at a different motel in Point Pleasant one summer and were charged for parking and wifi, not here. Parking and... More

I just left the Pelican Point Motel after a weekend stay with my 2 children. It was exceptionally clean and nicely decorated. The double room was a bit small but it had everything necessary but most of all the staff is sincerely very nice and tries hard to make the stay enjoyable. Walking distance from the beach. I will be... More

Able to secure a last minute reservation for a long weekend trip with friends and family. Staff friendly, rooms nicely decorated and immaculate! Have stayed in Point Pleasant at beach hotel for many years and have never seen such a clean beach hotel room. Cleaning staff -Karen- gets kudos for straightening up after 3 boys (ages 17,17 and 11)- said... More
