... was perfect for getting in some quick miles. 20 down and things were very relaxed. We then started to hit the built up areas and struggled our way through several towns including New Brunswick which was particularly hectic. We found ourselves filtering onto some seriously busy roads and without the comfort of a hard shoulder at times it was too hair raising.
The second part of the day was filled with noise and speeding traffic. We hopped from ...

Our plan was to drive down to see Nick Vujicic (lifewithoutlimbs.org) speak at a church in Maryland. We recalled calculating that it would be about 3 hours.
The next morning, I checked to see if he was indeed still scheduled to speak at the church--he was--and I checked the map again to see if it was indeed a three hour drive--it wasn't. It was about four hours. Kelsey and I decided that eight hours in the car all to ...
... I envisioned West Africa as a place of disease and illness, one where you will get sick if you go there. However, in a group that averaged around 20 people there were only a few respiratory ailments like colds and sinus infections, some infected insect bites, some sporadic traveler's diarrhea, and a two people experiencing falls. I didn't see any sign of tropical diseases or serious gastrointestinal conditions among my fellow travelers. With the sweltery ...

As I walked back toward Madison Square Garden, under which was the train station I needed to return to the Newark Airport, I thought maybe we'd give it a try and start walking aways to see if we could catch a glimpse of the Statue of Liberty, but I didn't have enough time and almost caught a bus that probably would have taken me to Ground Zero in Lower Manhattan but didn't have any change. Anyway, I still had a fun time in New York ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Windswept Motel Point Pleasant Beach
We recently returned from a stay at the Windswept. It's difficult to write a fair review because the Windswept is indeed above average for the central Jersey Shore, but still far from great on any kind of broader scale. Our stay started with a small disappointment that our "oceanview" room was really a "parking lot view" room, with a glimpse of the beach if you stood in a particular spot on the small balcony and sort of craned your neck around to the side. Make sure if you want a real view to book the "oceanfront" rooms, which are the same price but seem to go pretty fast. The room itself is clean but very basic. The bedding was fine, and the sparse furniture was decent. They do provide beach passes and towels, but not chairs or umbrellas. The small pool was fine for an afternoon dip, and generally not too crowded. There are no restaurants on site, but the restaurants at the White Sands next door were convenient and decent (especially the beachfront Lido Cafe).
It was an alright stay
When we went to the windswept in Summer of 2000 it was an alright stay. The rooms weren't that clean. But the people there were overly friendly. The pool was beautiful the water was warm and clean and I enjoyed just being able to walk across the street and be literally on the beach it a very nice hotel for families and couples despite the few minor problems we had with our room but the people when to great heights to help us repair the problem and get our vacation started :)
A wonderful motel
The Windswept Motel is a magnificent motel. I have been going there every year and it gets better and better. It is a great convenience. The board walk is a few steps away and the beach is just a small view away. It has wonderful restuarants near by and all the staff is awsome. Whoever is reading this and has never been to the Windswept, please dont think twice and go! You`ll love it! Thanks, A.N
Clean roooms friendly staff

No problems here
Recently stayed at the Windswept and was quite pleased.... Friendly staff and the rooms are very clean and nice sized.....also ample towels provided and they are nice and fluffy! Close enough to walk to the boardwalk as well. Would definitely stay there again!
The Windswept is above and beyond anyting else in Point Pleasant. Clean rooms, caring family oriented staff. Took us a few years to find it, wouldn't stay anywhere else !
The Perfect Getaway, all season long.
My husband and I have been going to the Windswept for year and we are always delighted by the very clean accomodations, the pleasant and accomodating staff and the wonderful private beach. We've never been disappointed!
After years of dissappointing experience at another local hote, found perfection at the Windswept with friendly, accomodating staff, clean rooms which are very nicely decorated (not like a typical shore hotel room), great oceanviews, clean pool....just an all around great experience!
Windswept Motel is Great
We just returned from a trip to Point Pleasant NJ for the Colombus Day weekend. Our accomodations at the Windswept Motel were excellent. Last year, however, our room was double the size but this one was great also. If you go ask for a room in the second building (not the building where the office is). If you ask for 2 queen sized beds the rooms are huge!
This is a great hotel, esepecially for families. My family has been staying there since I was a little kid. It is family operated and is very clean and well taken care of. It is a minute walk away from the private beach and Jenkinsons' boardwalk. The only thing is that you have to book very early to get the ocean front rooms, as they are the most popular.
