We love this place. It's clean, the updated rooms are adorable, and the location to the beach and boardwalk is great! We've been there twice and are booking again. The beds in the new rooms are a little high and we were concerned about our children rolling off so the staff found us an air mattress. They are very accommodating.... More

What a great time me and my family had at Pelican Point. It brought back memories of when I was a kid and went to the Jersey shore with my parents. The rooms were spotless and the staff went out of their way to make us feel at home. Can't wait to come come back.

Based on good reviews, I made a reservation for 2 nights in November. When we got there the door to the front lobby was locked. There was a phone number on the front door which I called only to be told by an automated voice that voicemail was not set up for this number – no one ever answered that... More

We stayed for one night but it was enough to let us know we'd definitely come back. This was our first time staying at the Pelican (we've stayed in just about every hotel/motel in Point Pleasant over the years). As mentioned it was great...clean rooms (we happened to stay in one of the remodeled rooms on the first floor)...and VERY... More

I have been going here for the past 15 or better years. Although a new owner has taken over, she has improved the rooms, furniture, updated electric, TV's, etc. We love Theresa - we continue to go back year after year. I saw a previous comment..........if there are no coffee makers in the room..........ask her for one. She goes out... More

Stayed for two nights. The room was very clean and the beds very comfortable. Our room had a small refrigerator and a microwave, a coffee maker would have been nice but there is coffee and cookies in the lobby to help yourself to. The staff are all very friendly and very helpful. A great location, minutes from the beach, We... More

Rooms are clean, newly remodeled, quiet and close to the ocean. Leaving tomorrow. The only drawback is there are no coffee makers in the room, you'll have to go to the lobby, not a deal breaker. Otherwise, perfect!!!

My husband and I stayed here and couldn't be more impressed. The rooms were very clean and well decorated with the beach theme. The beds are very comfortable, pillows nice and fluffy, and fresh smelling linens and comforter. The staff is very friendly, great customer service. I would defiantly stay here again.

It really depends on what you're looking for. Don't have high expectations but for a night or two shouldn't be bad. Basic room, clean, and near the beach. Friendly front desk staff. Ask for ground level.
