We just got back from a great overnight stay at the Windswept Motel. We had an ocean view room, which we could see a good portion of the ocean, and it was super clean and comfortable. I am picky about cleanliness (We have a 1-year-old and a 3-year-old) and the room was immaculate. We had a four-cup coffee pot and coffee in our room, a nice size refrigerator and ice bucket and glasses. We also had a nice, but tiny, deck with two chairs off our room. It offered a good view of Jenkinson's Boardwalk fireworks Saturday night.
Getting to the beach was not difficult, although I was a little concerned from previous reviews. We had to go around the hotel from our room and out to a walkway. The boardwalk shops started a short distance from the hotel and were not too long of a walk for our kids. The aquarium, at the end of Jenkinson's Boardwalk, was a little bit too far for them though. I would say strollers were necessary for young kids.
The staff was also very friendly and helpful with eatery suggestions - we ate at John and Elaine's for breakfast. Yummy. We didn't get to Shore Fresh for seafood, but hope to the next time we're in Pt. Pleasant. Hoffman's Ice Cream was delicious too with huge portions. Staff at Windswept was so nice and let us use the restroom for the facilities and to change after we checked out with our 1-year-old and 3-year-old. It shows they really care about their customers! Note to anyone using the beach: There are no public bathhouses (one public restroom on the entire boardwalk) in Pt. Pleasant, so plan accordingly if you check out of your hotel and want to go to the beach for the day. I was unprepared for the sandy aftermath.
We would highly recommend this motel to anyone for a stay in Pt. Pleasant. It exceeded our expectations!
