“Great Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

What a great place to stay. I have been to many motels at the Jersey Shore but this is by FAR the best one. The place is very clean and the host A.J. was the most helpful owner I have ever come across. Myself and 7 friends booked 2 rooms the weekend of 8/8-8/10/14. We are 27 years old but very respectful and not looking to trash the room or make noise for anyone. I think A.J. noticed that right away because usually motel owners are treating us like children with rules and regulations but AJ was helpful and respecftul back from the start. We had multiple cars and you can only park one per room but AJ allowed us to park our extra cars in his lot overnight on Friday so that we can move them onto the free street parking when spots were plentiful on Saturday A.M. He even gave us free waters and a few free beach passes. We WILL absoltuley be returning next summer. I highly reccomend staying here.

Within walking distance of the beach, boardwalk and amusements. Rooms were clean and the added microwave and fridge was an added bonus. On site pool was comfortable and clean. The best part was there are no hidden fees. We stayed at a different motel in Point Pleasant one summer and were charged for parking and wifi, not here. Parking and wifi are included at no extra charge. I would definitely stay at the Pelican Point again and would highly recommend it to anyone who plans on staying in Point Pleasant.

The rooms were very clean. Aj was the host with the most! He attended o all of our needs. He went above and beyond to make our stay at the pelican. A wonderful experience. We are looking forward to stay there again next summer. The pool was great and it's just a two block walk to the beach at jenkinson's. I would highly recommend the pelican.

I just left the Pelican Point Motel after a weekend stay with my 2 children. It was exceptionally clean and nicely decorated. The double room was a bit small but it had everything necessary but most of all the staff is sincerely very nice and tries hard to make the stay enjoyable. Walking distance from the beach. I will be back next summer. We loved it!!!

Room Tip: Chose deluxe room instead of the double if you want more moving around space

Able to secure a last minute reservation for a long weekend trip with friends and family. Staff friendly, rooms nicely decorated and immaculate! Have stayed in Point Pleasant at beach hotel for many years and have never seen such a clean beach hotel room. Cleaning staff -Karen- gets kudos for straightening up after 3 boys (ages 17,17 and 11)- said she was a mom and understood.
Hotel is well situated between beach ( approximately 3 blocks) and business area/ train.
Reduced price beach passes nice touch. Parking plentiful. Pool clean and well kept. Note: lobby closes at 10 so get ice or extra linen early. They do have number for emergencies and were there within minutes when boys locked key in room. Wish list: keep pool open later in evening. Overall a great vacation at a reasonably priced, clean, cute shore motel close to attractions and beach.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Pelican Point this past weekend. The location is great, about a 5 minute walk to the boardwalk/beach area. The staff and owner are very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again the next time I plan on visiting Point Pleasant.
