    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

    from

    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.

    ... before taking on the river rapids. It was a legendary ride everyone enjoyed, where all received a fair soaking! We then took a ride on the classic Ferris wheel, enjoying the view over the park before taking a swing on the chairs. Being one of David's favourite rides in the park, it was only fair to participate despite the terrifying heights. We were whisked high into the air at approximately 250ft, with a semi safety lap bar and seat belt. ...

We settled in by collecting firewood and started a campfire while waiting for Ran to arrive, he got there about 5:45 and we sat around the fire for a while having a yarn and catching up. There were squirrels and chipmunks everywhere. Ran took us into Walmart to stock on camping supplies and food for the morning, we were planning to go out ...

    A Slice of Cheesequake in Noisy New Jersey

    So, this was it. The last long day of cycling of the whole trip. We were nervous for a couple reasons, the bikes appear ready to fall to bits and the route to Cheesequake State Park through New Jersey was extremely built up. It didn't help that the mountain which had toppled us last night was still there and needed us to go back up and over it before heading east again.

    Having climbed the hill again through the pretty town of Little York, we found route ...

    Dinner time approached. Harold suggested that we eat at Houlihan's--I'm glad he did! Tell you what, the food was fantastic. Kelsey had some sizzling hot (literally) fajitas, and I dove into a pot roast (not literally). Again, it was so refreshing to be part of a big conversation around a table. Mom, Kelsey, and I had plans for church the next morning that would require an early departure, so ...

Although there were a few notable exceptions, the roads linking countries and major cities were paved and mostly in reasonably good shape. Side roads into the outback may be a different story, but my preconceptions that all roads would be dusty dirt tracks were entirely inaccurate. The third area in which I was positively surprised relates to health and ...
