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...

I have been going to this place for the past few summers. It is a very clean, family oriented place. The staff is very friendly and pleasant. The beach is walking distance which is pretty perfect, especially because I usually take the train in and it's almost perfect distance directly in the middle of the train and the beach. Also,...

I have been to this place twice before June 2014, and several other point pleasant motels, over the years. I have very low expectations for point pleasant, but in the past found this particular place to be the best. I had one concerning incident. A man who seemed to be a service/repair man in the hotel's staff shirt was in... More

My apologies as you are correct and also incorrect. The employee you cited is a really good worker who has been with us for some time. He has some challenges he has been faced with all his life and without going into detail this does not happen often. Having said that what you experienced is inexcusable and we are dealing... More

There is a reason why my family continue to stay at the Amethyst and its because this family-owned motel treats us like their extended family. Every morning my 8 year old daughter was greeted by Ashley with a big hug. No matter what we needed big or small, they were happy to help us. Laura, Theresa, John, Paul and Bill... More

The pool is fabulous and very clean. We had a great family vacation. I would definitely stay here again! It's my go to point pleasant hotel... More
