I just got off the phone with the always helpful Theresa and made my reservation for this summer. It will be my families third summer returning to the Amethyst. The motel is clean, affordable and in a great location. The pool is lovely and the staff is wonderful. I highly recommend anyone stay here!!

I usually don't write reviews, but this is something that people need to know! On July 19th, we arrived at the hotel at 9:30. It was too early to check in, however we were allowed to park the car and go to the beach. We arrived back at the hotel at 3:30 which we were then able to check in.... More

sandtraveller, General Manager at Amethyst Beach Motel, responded to this review

We appreciate reviews and respond appropriately to them when the substance of the review allows. We maintain a family run property located in heart of Point Pleasant Beach which provides a location close to the Boardwalk Beach and downtown shopping and eateries. The events depicted in this review mischaracterize our family run facility as not caring about our guests which... More

Everything about our stay of 3 nights at this motel was top rate. Love the location - 2 blocks from the beach and 3 blocks from town. Could hear the waves crashing at night thru our open window. Great beds! The best I've slept in at a motel. Great pool. Quiet and charming. Right next to a lake with cattails... More

We stayed overnight the weekend after labor day, so off-peak. The front desk person was very nice, friendly, but away from the desk with the door locked at times. Rate was pretty good, considering it was September, but be careful. You can call it nickel and diming, or 'a la carte', that's in the eye of the beholder. But be... More

A friend of mine & I went for a mini-girls-getaway before summer ends. Stayed August 31, 2015 - Sept 2, 2015.Mon-Wed. I liked the place... room clean, pool sparkling clean! 2 blocks straight walk to the beach & boardwalk. They let us check in early (like 12:30 the day we arrived) & let us check out late (2:00pm) on the... More

We stayed here midweek as they were offering a great special rate. The room was what you might expect from a jersey shore motel- nothing too fancy but nice as an affordable place to stay close to Jenkinsons beach. Location to boardwalk and beach was a plus for us. Pool was great for kids to swim in when we needed... More

Stayed for 2 nights with husband and 2 kids in upstairs double room. Room was ready around 4:45pm. Room: outdated but clean. Like the layout, enough storage and tables to place items on and beds were comfy. Little updates in the bathroom would go a long way. AC worked good. Fridge didn't cool drinks for a while and the shelf... More

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
