“Thanks for a great 50th!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

I was hoping to get a nice hotel room in Pt Pleasant Beach for my birthday with my daughter. Sand Pebble had a reasonable rate at a few hours notice. I inquired if I could have a room with an ocean view but they said the hotel did not have one. As luck would have it, when we arrived, we were booked in the only room on the second floor that DID have a view of the ocean through the open area of the condos across the street! We swam in the pool at night-always fun-they allowed me to leave my car in their lot the entire next day since it was off-season even though we had already checked out and the ladies on the phone and in person were exceptionally kind. Thank you so much and we will return!!

We wanted to spend a nice weekend with our children and grandchildren and found that the Sand Pebble Motor Lodge was way way over priced. Beds were uncomfortable, bedspread had stains, bathrooms were disgusting, shower doors were broken and there was a bug crawling on the one pillow. We booked 1 room for 2 nights which had 2 full size beds and another room for 1 night which only had 1 bed. Our bill came out to over $530.00. Do they think this is the Hilton? It was also off season! We will never go back there!

Room Tip: Book a room somewhere else!

sandpebblenj, Owner at Sand Pebble Motor Lodge, responded to this review, September 20, 2012
Over the course of a summer we receive almost entirely positive reviews. Our reputation for cleanliness and service is unmatched by any hotel in the area. If mistakes we made with the reviewer's room, then I apologize. However, I feel this review was based largely on a complaint over the price which did not arise until the guest checked out.

The reason why I say this is this guest made very favorable comments to my Assistant manager upon check out. In fact, commenting that they would be back and they enjoyed their stay! However that apparently changed once they received their final bill. Furthermore, this guest stayed two nights and did not bring any of these negative issues to our attention. We pride ourselves on addressing any issues that come up in a quick and professional manner.

As stated before the reviewer wrote this review because they felt they were charged too much for the second room they booked. However they paid $530 for three nights altogether. Before tax that comes out to about $150 per night. That is a highly competitive rate for the festival of the Sea weekend in PPB. In addition, they were notified of the rate before check in!

I also object to the comment about a bug on the pillow. The reviewer's implication being that we have some type of bug issue. The rooms open up on the outside, so when the doors are left open flying insects can enter and land some place in the room. We have no bug issues. we are inspected regularly both by our internal maintenance staff and an outside company. This was merely a harmless insect that entered the room through an open door. Unfortunately, we cannot stop bugs from entering if doors are left open.

Overall, I am very proud of the great response we get from most of our guests. However we do make mistakes. However, if a reviewers complaint is based mostly on price then that should be the substance of the review. This reviewer made no complaints while they were a guest with us. In fact they made very favorable comments while on the premises. This reviewer has simply embellished and exaggerated complaints in order to make their point about the price.

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!
