      Historical Traveler Reviews Windswept Motel Point Pleasant Beach

      Above Average for Jersey Shore (But That's Not Saying Much)

      from

      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).

      Overall, the staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is terrific, on the ocean side of Ocean Avenue, and just steps from the beach, boardwalk and restaurants, and a short drive to a bunch of other good stuff. I understand that the short season and the great demand results in these crazy prices for a very basic motel room (we paid around $300 per night all in). But at these prices, it would be nice if they would provide decent soaps and shampoos, a hairdryer, beach chairs, maybe a few more inexpensive "creature comforts" that you generally find in resort quality hotels, to help take the edge off of paying these prices.

      The bottom line is this: What the Windswept does have is fine; there just ought to be a little more of it for these prices.

      It was an alright stay

      from

      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

      from

      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

      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!

      Excellent

      from

      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.

      from

      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!

      Perfection

      from

      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

      from

      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!

      Very Nice

      from

      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.

      The adventures of Spidey-Frinkle

      Today is another friend day! Our friend Pat and his four year old son Jamie (otherwise known as "the Frinkle", his self-imposed nickname – Jamie named his older brother Bacon Sauce, so Shane is now known as “the Sauce”) came out to the lot around lunchtime to visit with us and take us out for lunch.

      But before all of that happened, we drove into Old Bridge, arrived on our lot at a race park, and were parked right next to ...

      It was a sad morning for Hugh. We were all downstairs packing, eating breakfast, and having one last laugh with Jen before we headed out while Hugh slept in.

      I decided to check on him and find him sitting up in bed crying. I quickly go over, hug him, and ask what is wrong.

      "Mommy I thought you guys left and forgot me," sobbing away.

      Poor thing. I of course comfort him as one ...

      ... cars and people hanging coats. It’s insane. I’m losing control here, that’s it I can’t take it. I boldly suggest to Gail that we need to make some cuts here. She grabs the paperwork and looks it over. "Yup we sure do" she replied to my amazement. Gail quickly gets out the pencil and crosses out something on the contract telling the wedding planner “this is way too much for this” so out it goes. As the calculations are being redone ...

      ... plague. So we thought half price was more than fair.

      Unfortunately the woman in the office had never had to deal with anyone suggesting such a thing before and so had to phone head office for advice. The advice she received was to radio to the Park Police and get them to make us pay the full fee. Neil was sat in the bus outside in the car park while Mel was taking care of things in the office. The next thing we saw was a big SUV screech into the car park, ...

      ... of variable tolls which take into account costs of traffic congestion - to drive the same stretch of road or cross the same bridge during rush hour might cost several times what the same trip might cost in the middle of the night when that resource (the use of the road or bridge) is not so "scarce". That's all fine and good - just get rid of the aggravation of these annoying toll booths which waster so much of everyone's time. ...
