“nice weekend get away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the door to our room - it was nice! and clean! our view was overlooking the pool, which was also clean. Walk to the beach was short (only had to cross 1-main street), only used the car once to eat dinner off the boardwalk. A/C worked, fridge worked, bed was comfortable. we used the pool several times which kids really enjoyed. property was quiet. shower had hot water and lots of water pressure. overall, enjoyed our visit.

First stayed here several times back in the 1990's.........been coming here regular every year for 4 years now........and already booked for next year. In my opinion the best place in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ. Friendly staff, very accomodating, clean upgraded rooms......comfortable pleasant getaway. Across from the beach and boardwalk, close drive to best restaurants in town. Love the atmosphere.......great guests and fun for all whether you're 8 to 80. The poolside grill is a big plus.......great food for breakfast and lunch. If you don't stay at the Sand Pebble you're missing out.

We had a wonderful two night stay at the Sand Pebble Motor Lodge in Point Pleasant. The suite of living room/ kitchenette/ bedroom was spacious and immaculate. The beds were comfortable, and all personel at the motel were helpful and friendly. We will definitely return next summer!

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights during the week. Our room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The shower had hot water and was clean. We stayed in a room that had a separate entrance and it was fine. Our room had a flat screen tv, a ceiling fan, and a refrigerator!

When we requested extra pillows and towels we got them immediately. The housekeeping staff followed our requests and their service was excellent.

The pool area was nice and it had a large selection of chairs and tables for us to sit. They also had a snack bar which by the way had the best coffee in the morning.

Parking was good and I never had to worry that someone would take my spot or do something to my car.

We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed our visit to Pt. Pleasant. Our comfortable stay at the Sand Pebble made our trip even better and we will stay with them again and again!

My family and I stayed at the Sand Pebble last summer. It was our first time in Point Pleasant (we usually stay in Wildwood) and I was very happy here! The room was spacious and very clean, the staff was friendly, pool was clean (and the perfect size) and of course having a snack bar right there was very convenient. The only thing I didn't like was that my room didn't have a balcony. It was in the building across from the office and the only way in/out was through the hallway. I like to sit outside and read or just relax. So, when I booked this year’s trip I requested a room that would provide that luxury! The Sand Pebble is perfect for me and my family’s needs. I can't wait to get back there (9 days and counting!)

We just got back from the Sand Pebble. We must of had one of the oldest rooms. The door to the bathroom knocked into the TV on the wall when leaving the bathroom. Half of the track on the bathroom doors was missing on the bottom so the doors can swing into the bathtub. Some of the towels which should have been white were gray. The air conditioning unit went on every minute. The beds were lumpy. It was clean but it wasn't worth $199 a night and we've been to many motels with the kids at the Jersey Shore. Our room (#8) was on the bottom floor of the building that did not have the office. We only stayed one night & that was enough for us!

I am sorry a few simple maintenance items got in the way of the reviewer's good time. The shower and air condition could have easily been fixed if it was reported to us promptly. We strive to find the issues before our guests but sometimes things do slip by us.

The mattresses are a new, very thick memory foam and overall we have gotten a great response from most guests. The TV location is an issue and the room will be upgraded with a new HDTV come next spring.

I am a little puzzled by the 1 star rating, because if you look at this reviewers individual ratings we are rated as a clean hotel, with good service and a great location. Surely, that merits more than one star! However, our aim is to take the criticisms and make our place better because of them, and that is what we will do.

The best thing about the Sand Pebble is a great location. It's 1 block from the beach and 2 blocks to the south end of Jenkinson's Boardwalk. Check-in and check-out was fine, but wasn't very friendly. They also didn't offer the discounted tickets for the beach- I had to ask for them. The discounted beach tickets were a definite bonus though, so don't forget to ask for them- $4 per adult to go on Jenkinson's beach. That was worth the longer walk to the Jenkinson's beach ticket booths (you can't use them on the beach directly across the street from the motel).

The pool and patio was nice, with lounge chairs and tables with umbrellas. There was also a convenient and inexpensive snack stand next to the pool that even served breakfast.

As for the rooms-- There are 2 buildings- the main office is located in one, and then another separate building to the left of it. We were located in a room on the 2nd floor of the building WITHOUT the office. You had to access the rooms on the 2nd floor by walking up a flight of outside steps, then entering the building through an access door. Because the hotel room doors were located in a hallway, and because of this outside door, we were constantly hearing that outside access door slamming shut and peoples' room doors slamming shut. It was very loud with lots of echos. What made it even worse was the cleaning lady knocking on your door every morning before 10am asking if you were out of your room (SO annoying!) and then proceeded to vacuum the hallway. During beach vacations, I like to relax and sleep in- not get interrupted all morning by the cleaning lady knocking, vacuuming and doors slamming.

Overall, the room was clean and actually quite large. The bathroom was tiny though, but the sink was located outside of the bathroom. The only amenities were a mini fridge (nice bonus), ceiling fan, AC and flat screen TV. Bring your own soap, hair dryer, shampoo and clock with alarm if you need one, as there are no clocks in the rooms.

Because of the location and the clean rooms, we'd stay here again. But NOT on the 2nd floor of the other building.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main building (with the office) or on the 1st floor of the other building. The...
