Historical Traveler Reviews Windswept Motel Point Pleasant Beach
Above Average for Jersey Shore (But That's Not Saying Much)
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
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

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.

So when his response after the show was specifically positive and encouraging with a couple of ideas on how to possibly improve audience response during the fishing gag, I was incredibly proud of John and all of the work he’s put in to get where he’s at.

... pet a skink and watch an exciting video about dinosaurs. It was pretty cool to see some real fossil footprints! It was a very good little stop.
We then made our way to Parlin (Sayreville), New Jersey where we will be staying the next three nights with my brother-in-law's parents. My sister is here too so very excited to see them and the kiddos.

When that happens, you both do the tradiional weapons form and then do your own freestyle form. Kathryn had a very solid performance. Then when it came time for her freestyle, she forgot it and winged it. Her smile to the judges was precious! Kathryn took 2nd in weapons. ...

Seeing nowhere suitable to park up for the night we continued on to take our chances at another New Jersey state park, this time Cheesequake near Aberdeen. It couldn’t have been more of a contrast to the last one. The staff were friendly and helpful (and hadn’t gone home early), there were security barriers in place and the showers were clean. Unfortunately there was no electric hook-up, but hey, you can’t have everything.
... tradition with the ever-modernizing world. For all our concerns about safety and crime in West Africa, the twenty-plus people in the group traveling there for several months experienced only two minor crime incidents: Blair's pocket was picked in Dakar and Trudy's chain was ripped off in Douala. Perhaps the extensive precautions we took along the way contributed to this good record, but I'm impressed by how little rather than how much crime there is in ...
