Our experience at the Amethyst Beach Motel was well worth the rate charged. We enjoyed the large rooms and the clean, newly remodeled tiled showers. We enjoyed clean crisp sheets upon our arrival and our rooms were cleaned daily. Fresh bathroom linen was received daily. We did need a washcloth one day, but they quickly retrieved one for us when... More

After reading many A+ reviews of this motel, we were smitten and excited to have a great experience, and the $175 per night did not even seem expensive. The owners are very sweet and hard working people, but this is not a place to stay if you like nice things. The rooms smelled very musty, the bathroom was just gross... More

Management response:

OF THE OVER 3000 HAPPY GUESTS THIS SEASON, THERE IS ALWAYS ONE! We have no knowledge of this situation and why were we not contacted directly by this guest and given an opportunity to make it right? As indicated in the review “The owners are very sweet and hard working people” We would have changed the room immediately regardless of... More

I would highly recommend staying at the Amethyst Beach Motel. It is two blocks from the beach. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The owner's and staff could not be more accomedating. They were extremly friendly and helpful. The pool was a great plus to stay, very clean. This would be a great place to have a family reunion.

Too often budget-class accomodations mean dirty, dilapidated, depressing and dangerous. The Amethyst re-writes those rules. The owners of this clean, modest, surprisingly charming Jersey Shore budget vacation spot are an example to the motel industry on where -- and where not -- to cut corners to provide guests with a relaxed, dignified, thoroughly enjoyable experience. The structure itself is austere,... More

My husband and I decided to get away for the long Memorial Day weekend and picked Point Pleasant and the Amethysts Motel. It was our first trip to the Jersey shore and we enjoyed our stay so much we extended it an extra day. The Amethysts Motel was exactly what we needed - it was safe, clean and in a... More

I love this Motel. It's a block from the Beach and the Board Walk with the Amusements. The Motel is always clean and the people are always friendly. This is my 12th summer going to the same motel. If's it's a little chilly, they have a heated in the ground pool that the kids love to swim in. Most of... More

When it comes to hospitality the folks at the Amethyst Beach Hotel are truly gracious. Theresa and everyone who assists in making your stay enjoyable are ahead of the class when it comes to accommodating your every need. I’ve stayed there on several occasions in the off season and during their busiest time – Memorial Day weekend, and the service... More

Had a great time down the shore last weekend, On our prior visit to Point Pleasant we stayed at a nice motel on Broadway never realizing that the Amethyst was right down the street from Jenkinsons and just a couple blocks from town. It is a clean well run motel. Across the street is a cute little park were the... More
