Located about 2 blocks from the boardwalk. Many amenities: pool, in-room kitchenette, free, local parking, proximity to downtown businesses, etc. Friendly, efficient staff will make things right if they go wrong. Wonderful place to stay for vacation, no complaints.

This is the second time I've stayed at the Amethyst Beach Motel. The room was clean and the staff was helpful and very friendly. It is very close to the beach, even though we went off season. I would definitely stay here again.

This is a great, clean, convenient hotel, great location with amazing pool. We just booked again for this summer! reasonably priced and extremely friendly and accommodating staff! They have common BBQ grills (supplying the propane and utensils) in a large common yard so perfect for large families getting multiples rooms and hanging out together poolside and grilling!

Main room is nice but it's an old place that shows up in the bathroom area which they don't clean very well. Our bathroom missing wall tiles and the tiled floor was horribly filthy with dirt/mildew, etc. to the point where you could see a layer of filth. We wound up getting bleach cleaner and a scrub brush since we...

We thank you for taking the time however what you have represented is just no indicative of our facility. We do not have a resort fee in the off season and we take pride in our cleanliness all year. Not sure if any of what is represented is even valid given the fact that few people take vacations in Point...

Our family has been coming to the Amethyst for 12 years & wouldn't think of staying any where else while down the shore. Location is perfect, always clean , staff is wonderful & the price is reasonable- they go out of their way to accommodate you. We look forward to returning next year !!
