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 !!

We stayed for two nights in July, traveling with another couple. The pool area seemed clean, though we did not go in the pool. There seemed to be a young crowd. If you're one of those people who do not like seeing people hanging around the pool with beer bottles, this place isn't for you. However, this didn't bother us...

Came here for a overnight visit. The staff is very friendly and helpful. You can get a discount pass for the beach (which is very close) If you do not want to walk to the beach, the pay parking lot is right across the street. The pool was clean and stays open pretty late.

First off, I want to say, I do not expect much at a Jersey Shore motel. This place however, really killed it for me. The only nice thing I have to say about this place is the blonde lady at the front desk. She was kind and polite. We had to bring our dog, which was allowed because the 'dog...

Thanks for taking the time to outline your issues, we attempted to provide you with a pet friendly opportunity which apparently did not fulfill your expectations. As we do not allow pets and are extremely busy with a seasonal staff the fact that you were questioned about your pet is not unusual and your comments are an over reaction to...
