I have stayed at this hotel numerous times over the years. It's within walking distance of all major attractions and bars. The rooms are always tidy and the staff is very accommodating. The pool is an added bonus. Great place to stay.

Best motel in Pt. Pleasant. My sister and I have been staying here for a girls weekend for the last several years. Office staff is very friendly and helpful, clean rooms, onsite parking. Excellent location, walking distance to the beach, boardwalk, several restaurants. We are looking forward to our stay this year!

The best motel down by point Pleasant Beach. I've been staying here for the past TEN years. The staff has been excellent for all ten years I've been staying here. I've been taking the train down here. It is walking distance to downtown Point Pleasant Beach. Best time for me to go to the boardwalk is at night.

My daughter and I took a last minute overnight trip to Point Pleasant. Of course we stayed at the Amethyst. We had a nice room on the second floor overlooking the lake with views of Jenkinsons at a great rate. They are always making improvements to the rooms, patio and pool. And even though it isn't summer season yet, they... More

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
