We stayed here two summers ago and had a WONDERFUL time, in fact we just booked again for this coming summer. It's about a block from the beach in a wonderful location. I LOVED that the room had a fridge and microwave--since we have small children it was great to be able to keep juice boxes/milk etc in the fridge,... More

My sister and girlfriend stayed here the weekend of March 15th, 2014. Our room was clean and comfortable. The location is excellent. You can walk to the beach and the boardwalk or in the opposite direction into the town of Point Pleasant within five minutes in either direction. I have no problem recommending the hotel as a nice place to... More

Myself and two of my girlfriends wanted to attend the Point Pleasant Seafood Festival. One of us booked a room here. The other two of us didnt even know the name. When we first pulled in noone spoke as were thinking the same thing...we should have went to Wildwood. But the smell of seafood and knowing that no matter how... More

I stayed at this hotel during the beginning of Labor Day weekend and they allowed us to only stay one night instead of two unlike all other hotels. The complaints about the outside of the hotel are a little ridiculous since people forget how they JUST got destroyed from Sandy. The rooms there are very clean and it was a... More

My husband and I recently spent at night at Point Pleasant for our anniversary, and we stayed at the Amethyst. We’ve spent many years at the Jersey shore, so we weren’t expecting anything fancy. But I have to say, I was a little dismayed to see the outside of the building – it looked like an old, rundown apartment building... More

My husband and I were in town for a sad occasion (they did not know this)and we found the staff to be very hard-working and very solicitous of everyone's needs.i booked this off the Internet and probably because although I I grew up with lots of...

The location of this motel is fantastic. Easy walking distance to the Boardwalk & beach. The hotel itself can definitely use some work. The site says all rooms have been remodeled, but I'm not sure what they mean by that. Perhaps the furniture might be newer, but def not remodeled. The door was really hard to unlock & would not...

After staying at other jersey shore beach motels, I did not have high hopes upon booking this motel. However, once we arrived, I was pleasantly surprised. Although a bit dated, the motel room was very clean and it didn't have the odd musty smell that some motel rooms have. The beds were comfortable and clean as well as the bathroom.... More
