Point Pleasant to me anyway is one of the greatest family beach areas. The wifi issue has been addressed and we added some boosters so the problem has been solved. Thank you for your kind words about our clean rooms and our well maintained pool. We appreciate your review and hope we can serve your hospitality needs in the future.
