More about Amethyst Beach Motel

Warm & Friendly

by A TripAdvisor Member

This is a great place to stay, real close to beach and boardwalk. When visiting with my family each of the last two summers we stayed at the Amethyst.

My kids love the park and concert shell especially the fireworks on Thursday nights, lots of families. The patio is real nice with barbeques and light breakfast served there.

We are looking forward to returning this summer

Great Place to Stay!

by A TripAdvisor Member

Looking forward to returning to our favorite spot. Have vacationed at the Amethyst Beach Motel for years now and wouldn't stay anywhere else. Our children have made friends there as have we and each year we all try to coordinate our vacations so we can meet there again. They are close to the beach and rides and we love their pool and patio.

Found the Place to stay for our 2005 vacation

by A TripAdvisor Member

We were extremely satisfied and have made reservations for a pool side room this summer and look forward to our vacation their!

Recently visited pt. Pleasant Beach to decide where to stay for our family summer vacation this year. Having read postings on this site I decided to visit the hotels prior to making our reservations and have decided to stay at the Amethyst Beach Motel. The location is great as is their patio and pool area. They were in the process of getting ready for the season with work being done in the rooms; however we were able to see some rooms so we could decide exactly what accommodations would suit us best and check the facility out for ourselves.

Always have a great time

This june will make my family's 5th annual trip to the Amethyst. We started going there with one other family and we have grown into a group of 5 families going there this year. We always have a great time mostly due to the perfect accomodations. The rooms are typical Jersey Shore rooms (small) but who cares when we have the swimming pool right outside our door. Our children practically sleep in their bathing suits so they can jump into the pool as soon as they wake up. And the parents love the convinience of the continental breakfast, we eat poolside while the kids play and swim. The staff is accomodating and the office always remembers us and greets us by name. Its not the Hilton, but we wouldnt be able to enjoy ourselves in this manner at the Hilton. I always recommend the Amethyst to anyone who is visiting Pt. Pleasant.

PS: Its always clean and neat when I am there. I have seen staff members working at 7AM and at midnight, so they make the effort to maintain the site. Thanks Theresa!

It's Become a Summer Kick-Off Tradition

by A TripAdvisor Member

My family began vacationing at the Amethyst 5 years ago this summer and we plan to keep on going back. We pick the children up on their last day of school and keep on driving 'til we hit the shore! We meet up with friends there and formally kick-off our summer vacations. The convenience of the Amethyst to the beach and boardwalk is perfect. It's also a convenient walk to town. We like to get the poolside rooms so that the kids can enjoy the water and we can enjoy the close proximity. It's always easy to have an adult on hand to keep an eye on them without making a huge effort. The staff is friendly and efficient; never a problem there. The rooms are clean and the grounds are well kept. I saw some of the other reviews and I can't believe they stayed at the same place! Four years and counting and we never experienced any problems. This is a very comfortable Jersey shore accomodation at a very reasonable price. Get our room ready, Teresa, we'll be there soon!

A+ for the Amethyst!

by A TripAdvisor Member

Great stay, great weekend Amethyst is definitely the place to stay. Once we parked our car we never needed it again until we checked out late Sunday. The room we stayed in was newly renovated work was ongoing on the other sections. The location is the best as it is a short walk to the central boardwalk and three blocks from downtown Pt Pleasant Beach. We had a package which with a late checkout on Sunday and included continental breakfast. The staff where great and we will be coming back, we recommend it highly.

Great Stay

by A TripAdvisor Member

Visited Pt. Pleasant Beach this weekend for my birthday with friends and
stayed at the Amethyst Beach Motel. Great location to Jenkinsons and
Martells. Their pool was not open but should be by this weekend as they were
working it when we arrived. Their staff was working very hard at renovating
their rooms and we had an opportunity to stay in one of them. The rooms have
been freshly painted and are cheerfully colorful with much attention to
cleanliness. Their staff was really terrific, the location great and we
really enjoyed the continental breakfast. Can’t wait to go back in June.

Great Time- our Jersey Shore vacation spot

by A TripAdvisor Member

Stayed at the Amethyst Beach Motel for a wedding in Pt. Pleasant beach.
We really enjoyed our stay and would have stayed longer if the weather had been better. The staff was wonderful and very attentive. They are right across from a park and lake and we can see the swans swimming around from our room which we loved. The rooms were bright colored and clean. We all had a great time. Would recommend anyone to try this facility.

Tried to make reservations to go to Pt. Pleasant Beach for the weekend and was confused by the difference in pricing among the hotels I called. We decided to take a chance and go down without a reservation so that we could see first hand why some hotels were charging so much less than others. We really didn't want to spend a lot of money on a hotel room since we were only there for one night so we started at the least expensive motels on Broadway which are located so far from the main boardwalk you have to drive there and pay for parking. Ultimately we worked ourselves up close to the main boardwalk and found the Amethyst Beach Motel which is where we ultimately stayed. Yes we paid a higher price than what we would have at many of the other motels but Amethyst was nicely maintained and once we parked we could walk to the main beach and boardwalk as well as town shopping. We now understand the difference in pricing among other motels and hotels and have come to learn that the old saying you GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR is true. We too share the many positive comments made on tripadvisor with regard to this hotel and will be returning.

Always good at the Amethyst

by A TripAdvisor Member

We go down every year for the PLJ Summer Kick Off and tried other hotels but now we stay always at the Amethyst. The rooms are clean and newly painted. The location is convenient to the beach and boardwalk-the staff is friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast is a nice touch. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Point Pleasant and we'll be back!
