I guess you could call this place retro, but pretty much just old and in need of repairs. To operate the AC I had to stand on the bed. There were broken ceiling tiles in the bathroom. The tv remote was held together with duct tape and didn’t work except to turn tv on and off.

Thank you for taking the time to bring to our attention your issues, The AC units all have remote controls which should have been on the dresser in the room. We are continuing to upgrade Wi-Fi as the concrete steel building has challenged us and more receivers are being installed. We are renovating all rooms and exterior areas for Spring 2019 and hope to provide and excellent environment where all are comfortable and depart happy! Should you consider a return stay next season we would be happy to offer a special package for you! Amethyst Family and Staff

Stayed overnight with friend and her two grandsons. Worst place I ever stayed at. Payed a lot for overnight stay for four. Place slept 4 but only had three pillows and had to ask for another. At 11:30 pm got ready for bed and found out there were no sheets on our bed. Guess

We apologize for the experience, sometimes things get overlooked although we try our best, and truly care about each guests experience. It has been a very tough season with so much rain and difficult seasonal issues. Regarding any confusion about Parking and Resort Fees, which are "in season only" we publish the following to provide all our guests and explanation of these optional charges. May Through September: Resort Fee: $12.85 per day, per room maximum based on no more than Family of 4 with children 12 or under. Additional adults $2 each per day. Includes discounted beach passes ($5 as opposed to $9.00+ charged at the beach), continental breakfast (bagels, coffee, muffins, tea), wireless internet access, refrigerators & microwaves in room Parking Charge (Optional) $10 per day (1 car per room - standard sized vehicles) which can be waived on arrival should you choose to take street parking. Do to our great location adjacent to the Central Parking for Jenkinsons/Martells Beach and Boardwalk, we have a managed parking facility in order to assure parking for our guests as such the expense is passed on to only those guests who choose to take a space in one of our lots and does not burden those who arrive by train or without a car. There is parking on adjacent streets which is free however sometimes difficult to find. Amethyst Family and Staff

Carol thanks for you patience and understanding, Do in part to our great location adjacent to the Central Parking for Jenkinsons/Martells Beach and Boardwalk, we have a managed parking facility in order to assure parking for our guests as such the expense is passed on to only those guests who choose to take a space in one of our lots and does not burden those who arrive by train or without a car. There is parking on adjacent streets which is free however sometimes difficult to find. As or the resort fee it is optional and provides for a good value, WiFi is and has been an intermittent issue which is being resoled as I respond to your review. Apologies for our handyman however it does not do IT work and tries to help! if he came off inporperly we apologize it has been a long hot summer!

Are the resort fees already added to my reservation ?? I am not using the pool, beach or BBQ area. Just parking and wifi. Do I still have to pay extra?
Resort fees are optional, and management is very flexible when it comes to providing accommodations to its customers. Alway give a call and discuss your needs and Amethyst staff will do its best to make you happy.

Do you recommend this place?. Is there parking and is it near the boardwalk? I stayed at the Pelican Point Motel only but no vacancies. Is it near that Motel? Thanks so much for your help Catrine
Amethyst has the best location closest to boardwalk and centrally located parking lot is managed as the close proximity to boardwalk beach parking requires parking attendants to manage guests parking and public parking this assures guests will always have a spot.

what is the check in age limit? is it 18 or 21
Not positive if there even is an age limit to check in. That would be a question for the motel staff, though.

do you have a place big enough for 5 ppl on march 25th and how much
You can also get two adjoining rooms on the first floor which would sleep 4 with an option for a sleeping bag sleeper - it would be tight but might work

"There are many more hotels to choose from. Just beware of this hotel."
"I have been on the boardwalk side of the motel for every year BUT one."
"DO NOT take rooms on second floor. Roof leaks and will not be fixed due to demolition of facility soon."
"I liked room 138 as it was like having my own little apartment."
"Ask for the first floor !"
