Stayed for two nights on second floor. Employees are super friendly. The pool looked very nice, although we never used it, opting for the beach. Hotel offers discount beach passes. On the day we arrived our room wasn't quite ready, so we went to beach. Husband went back to room around 3 and it still wasn't ready. By 4 when... More

We recently stayed at Amethyst Beach Motel with our grandkids. We were concerned about some negative reviews that were posted on the website. Let me assure you that Theresa and her staff were most helpful and friendly and addressed our concerns in a most friendly and professional manner. She gave some really good hints about local places to eat. The... More

Point Pleasant is a clean, family friendly shore point with enough bars to keep the adults entertained and the Amethysts Beach Motel is a really nice, family owned motel just a block away from the middle of the boardwalk. The pool is clean and the rooms are comfortable, but the best thing about the place is the staff. The people... More

The place is great..The staff was friendly and want you to have a lovely stay. We were a big group and it was super convenient and in close proximity to the boardwalk. They were also excellent and allowed us to swim in the pool for a bit after check out time.

Dear Theresa: I had a excellent stay at Amethysts Beach Motel last week. The weather was excellent. I saw a car show the first day I stayed. The breakfast bagels was excellent. Then went to the boardwalk evenings into the night. Played video games at Jenkinsons every night. I saw fireworks on the 3rd night I was there( Aug 6th).... More

The motel offers great upgrades! Some friends and I stayed at the Amethyst and were very thankful for the kind service. The Wi-Fi was a bit tricky to get a hold of but the overall experience was great! The home was definitely the perfect beach house. The location is perfect, only a straight walk to all beach/ boardwalk. A nice... More

We have been coming back for years. Great staff that always remembers us year after year. Clean rooms, great pool, good starter breakfast, a rock throw from the beach. The kids spent hours in the pool and playing games at the patio.

Beware!!!! You pay for wifi that didn't work. You pay for pieces of bagel and muffins. You pay for parking. Resort fee??? This is far from a resort. I see they say the parking fee is because of the location. Really??? Give me a break. Stay next door. Nicer motel. Nicer staff. No hidden fees!!!! The only good thing is... More

Check out the history of reviews from this individual and you will find reason to question the authenticity of the alleged stay and observations as they... More
