My girlfriend and I wanted 2 days at the beach, no frills and affordable. We found the Amethyst Beach Motel, which is 2 long blocks from the boardwalk. The staff was great, we had a few room problems that were remedied immediately. I needed a freezer in a refrigerator, so they moved one into my room. We couldn't find outlets,... More

I stayed one Saturday night and ended up paying over $400. It wasn't worth the money. The room was clean, but outdated. The water pressure in the shower was not very strong. It's a long block to the beach, but very doable. You end up next to the first aid post.you have to pay extra for beach passes but they... More

To insure that every guest can expect Ice, we have a policy of not allowing coolers to be filled with this machine and do sell ten pound bags of... More

First of all, let me say that I've worked at a luxury NYC hotel for the past 15yrs, so I know service. This hotel is the perfect cure for stress. The location was only a 5 minute walk from the train station and a 5 minute walk from the beach. Plenty of restaurants and shops in the immediate area to... More

Staff is very nice. Pool is nice and secluded from street unlike a lot of other places down there. Not far from boardwalk, but far away enough you do not hear the noise at night. Breakfast was nice and they have the best free coffee. Good place to stay if you have kids. Family owed and operated and they treat... More

To start, the staff was WONDERFUL and helpful. The location is excellent. That being set, it is a typical beach motel. The room was dated, but relatively clean. The bathroom, was a different story. It was very out dated and needed some TLC. The bathroom was not as clean, and the toilet was not attached correctly. It was ok for... More

We have been going here for over 6 years as a family. The owners keep making upgrades to enhance the property and make your stay more enjoyable.  We always love the pool for afternoons when the beach gets too hot or crowded.  A great location; a few minutes walk to the beach and boardwalk and a few minutes drive into...
