Interesting that some reviewers claim their room was clean, others the opposite.We checked into the room, after a big storm, and found the screened window wide open.... soaked carpet, bed and chair. Had to use a few towels to mop up. Smoke alarm chirping every 5 minutes first night so alerted management who removed it from the wall. It wasn't replaced. Towelbar completely missing from bathroom (brackets hanging off the wall) so no place to hang wet towels. My friend who has allergies had symptoms after the first night, and by the second morning was completely congested. Had to buy allergy medicine, but because the motel doesn't provide shampoo or conditioner (we asked) we had to go the store anyway. Things like pink outdated bathroom tile, crooked moulding and even the half hanging draperies isn't a big deal. But moldy air, dirty carpet and tub is a big deal. Covid has hit businesses hard and it's commendable that this motel is open, but a few small upgrades (like when the towel bar breaks, fix it before next guest arrives, buying travel size shampoo and conditioners in bulk and putting them in each bathroom, scrubbing bathroom floor and tub after each guest, cleaning the filter in the air conditioner AT LEAST ONCE or twice during summer....) isn't expensive and would make a big improvement to encourage repeat customers. The location was great. 2 blocks to the beach and to downtown is so convenient you can leave your car parked the whole time.

Last June was my first stay at the Amethyst. It will now be my forever place to stay. I just booked my upcoming summer week vacation and the front desk staff was extremely nice and professional! They even allowed me to pick the room we wanted facing the boardwalk where my son likes to look out the window to see his favorite rope climbing activity on the boardwalk. The location was perfect we didn’t use our car at all and it made it feel like more of a vacation! We love that the pool at this hotel has a diving board too. I forgot my blow dryer and the hotel provided me one to keep for my entire stay there. We are looking forward to coming back this July!

Set your expectations. This is not a chain property. It’s a classic Jersey Shore family run motel needing updates. The good: The front desk staff was friendly and accommodating and the parking staff was very thorough. Check in was a breeze. The location is great - couple blocks from the heart of Point Pleasant Boardwalk. The ice machine worked. Good shower water pressure and the toilet did not run. The fridge was clean. And the pool courtyard was VERY loud and resonating, but with our door shut and drapes drawn, we could not hear much noise. The window unit AC was cold and cooled the entire room. The room smelled normal. The not so good: the room conditions were below average. While technically “clean”, the room and bathroom are in desperate need of an overhaul. The bathroom is held together with years and years of caulk on top of caulk. The kitchen sink was mounted to the counter top with 4 visible screws. I tore my shorts on an exposed nail on the edge of the table. If you are looking for a prime location and understand this property is below average, it will suit your needs. We look forward to a much needed renovation.

Thank you. We maintain a clean facility, renovations where underway until the Mayor of Point Pleasant Beach and his three council puppets obstructed us by attempting to take our property through Eminent Domain. We hope to complete renovations however Mayor Kanitra of Point Needs to work with us not obstruct us.

Man this hotel has so much potential being so close to jenkinsons board walk. If you’re a couple or single person with no kids you could skate staying here. But if you’re looking for comfort and peace of mind, you won’t get that here. The people we encountered were nice, but that’s the only good thing about this place. We wanted a place we could walk to and from to get to the boardwalk without having to drive (we intended on drinking) so location was huge for us. We have two kids. We don’t get out much so when we take trips it means ALOT to us. Anyways we picked this place because it was cheapest for our dates and they’re the only hotel that answered the phone. Idk why none of the surrounding hotels didn’t answer the phones when I was calling but whatever. So this place is crusty. I mean dated, old, and just not comfortable. The walls are super thin like you can hear who’s rooming next to you. So if you stay here, pray you don’t get placed near partiers. I laid down on the bed for like 10min to chill out after unloading our bags and when I sat up I saw a bug crawling on my pillow. When I went to shower later I killed a huge spider in the bathroom. I didn’t get a photo since I was in parent mode and instinctively killed it and disposed of it immediately. I mean The photos really speak for themselves I shouldn’t have to explain much. I hate to be so grim but DAMN. With such a prime location you’d think they’d invest in updating the place. When I pay anything over $100 a night I expect a level of comfort and decency in the accommodations I’m paying for. This was not worth $149 a night. So if you want to be close, find another hotel that’s worth the dollar but honestly the surrounding hotels looked just as old and crusty looking as well. If you don’t mind driving/ubering get a holiday inn or something.

Please accept our apologies as we had no idea that the issues you raised occurred. We are currently renovating Baths and rooms however this was not one of them. Having said that there is no excuse for having to deal with issues when you are traveling to have a good time. Its been a tough year for everyone and if you had let us know we could have offered another accommodation or provided you with options. Please contact us as we would like to personally discuss what we can do to make up for this singular event in our facility this past weekend. We did not experience with a full house any other customer issues however that does not excuse this.
