What a great place to stay! The heated pool was wonderful. I never thought of this little burg before after staying in Atlantic City over the years. The management was so accomodating and the location was perfect for a relaxed long weekend.

Our family has stayed at this motel for the past couple of years. My parents, brothers and sisters and their children have enjoyed a mini reunion there and are returning again this year. It is one block from the beach . Many of the rooms had been redecorated and they were continuing to redo the upstairs rooms. Our family especially...

My family has been spending summer vacation at Amethyst Beach Motel for the last 13 . This is, by far, the best shore motel around. The rooms are clean and spacious.The pool area has plenty of seating. And the pool is open from morning til night. My kids love the pool area so much that most times I cannot even...

Our family has been going to the Amethyst Hotel for our vacations since 2007 and we love it there. The staff is outstanding. The hotel has a very family friendly environment and we will be back to vacation again in July 2010. The rooms are very well maintained and the common areas are kept extremely well. The location is convenient...

We have stayed at the Amethyst since my two kids were children. Now we visit and my two young adults invite their significant others to visit for the day. We have always enjoyed the convenience and service at the facility. As the years have passed the management has steadily improved the facility. My kids don't want to stay anywhere else,...

We do not charge for parking after Labor Day, so we are not quite sure why this post has occured. We also take great care in providing accommodations which are inspected before and after each customer checks in. And also inpsect the room upon checkout and after the room is cleaned. This reviewe is questionable at best? Merry Christmas and...

My family and I have stayed at the Amethyst every year for about four years now. We always have a pleasant time at the motel, and feel as though we are at home. We had stayed at the motel the weekend of the wedding, which I now see has caused much uproar on this website. The people outside on the...

I recently stayed at this motel for three days for my friend's wedding along with the entire wedding party. Let me just say it was the most terrible experience I have ever had...

Once again our apologies those of you who may be considering staying with us and who look to reviews to gather a sense of the quality and condition and service you can expect.

I want to get the record straight here. I have never been so offended in my life and treated like absolute dirt like I was at this "motel".

If you are considering conduct and behavior which disturbs other guests or requires the police to intervene in order to take back control of your facilities we would be happy to refer you elsewhere. We are first and foremost a family run property and cater to families and couples seeking a clean quiet friendly environment to stay while visiting Point...

We have to apologize first to all of you who read these reviews as what we are responding to is truly an unfortunate sign of the times.
