“Clean, Great Location, Phenomenal Staff!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

My sister and I did a long girls weekend here. Booked the Sand Pebble at the recommendation of the Pt. Pleasant Chamber of Commerce. Turned out to be 4 of the best days ever!! We stayed in a Luxury Suite in the Victorian, a converted old house adjacent to the main hotel, right next to the pool. This 2-room suite with kitchen alcove was very spacious with plenty of seating. The beds were unbelievably comfortable. The mini-kitchen had a small sink, apartment size fridge with tine freezer compartment and microwave. No utensils or cleaning supplies. You'll want to bring a cooler for your ice, a few utensils and plastic cups and a roll of paper towel. Only 2 negatives were that the shower massage head did not work well and couldn't be adjusted and we heard the guests in the suite above us - whenever they walked, showered, flushed the toilet. Not an unpleasant situation, just one you should be aware of. Next time we may try for the upstairs. The pool was large, very clean, with plenty of comfy chaise lounges with thick cushions. The staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. And the best feature is Joe & Fran's poolside snack shack. Terrific people who make a mean breakfast sandwich, meatball sub or grilled cheese. Throw on your sweats or bathing suit, have a cup of coffee by the pool before heading to the beach. The hotel offers discount beach tags, but know that you'll have to walk about 4 blocks to get to that particular beach. We truly hope to make a stay at the Sand Pebble a yearly event.

The Sand Pebble Motor Lodge is a very clean and family friendly motel. The entire staff is great from house cleaning to front desk to maintenance. Joe and Fran from the Poolside snack bar offers a delicious breakfast and lunch.

We make it a point to visit the shore at least once a season, and The Sand Pebble is our first choice of hotels. The rooms are clean and affordable, the second floor offers views of the ocean. the beach is only half block from the hotel and the boardwalk ( with all the rides and attractions for the kids) is just two blocks away the pool is imaculate and their snack bar serves up a perfect THE&C (SPK). ( i moved away from jersey quite a few years ago, and the rest of the country just dosent get THE&C thing ) The folks at the the front desk are friendly and accomadating, and the snack bar guys are awesome too. The family friendly Sand Pebble ( and places like it) are a HUGE part of what makes the Jersey Shore a great place. We will be back soon!!

Much thanks to all for a pleasant stay. Even though it was just 1 night, we had everything right there; pool, poolside grill, lots of seating and friendly staff. We always visit before memorial weekend or after Labor Day, so it was an eye opener to see how busy the town gets. Also happy to see how hard everyone has worked to rebuild. It was heartwarming to read comments from displaced homeowners and how you opened your doors to help. See you in September!

Just returned from visiting Point Pleasant beach for the first time (June 2013). My sister picked Sand Pebble off the internet, and we were very pleased. We stayed in Room #6. It is an old-fashioned, charming motor lodge. The price and location were great. The room was simple and clean with comfortable beds. The staff was very helpful and friendly. They accommodated every request we made, including giving us a place to change after checking out and spending the day at the beach. They also offer discounted beach passes and discounted ride tickets - saving us quite a bit of money. The pool was very nice and clean with a great omelets at Joe and Fran's snack bar - first time eating pork roll and loved it! Joe and Fran were great. The pool also had lots of seating with many tables and lounge chairs. We would definitely stay again - probably off-season when the rates are so good.

This is one of the better motels i have ever been in here at the jersey shore. Nice people run this place, very clean rooms with flat screen tv's and new furniture. Walk across the street to the beach, by the way the beach has a new boardway very cool how they brought pt pleasant beach back to better condition. The sand pebble also has a snack bar with super cheese steaks, and the pool is very clean, no dirt at the bottom like some i have seen.

I have no complains about this place it was such a pleasure getting what you pay for and not some hollow promises, ty sand pepple for a great vacation.

Room Tip: stay upstairs over the pool

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

We were not impressed at all, overpriced! not worth the money! Although the rooms were clean, they were outdated, worn carpets, and the dark and dreary hallway, including our room #16 reeked of Cigarette Smoke. People at the desk were not very personable, quite cold, and unfriendly. After complaining about the cigarette smell, The woman at the desk just stood there, and wasn't sure what to do,we were then offered a different room by a man who was standing by the desk, what a lousy attitude he had! (we moved to an updated room in the opposite building). It was nice.
We checked out on Sunday, I called the office the next morning at 8:30am and informed the woman who answered the phone that we left a pair of expensive sandals on the side of the bed in room 31, she wasn't very receptive, I asked her to please check if anything was turned in by housekeeping, she took my number and said, as soon as they arrived she would call. SHE DID NOT! I called the office again at 6pm, a man answered the phone, and I explained what had happened, he was short with me, and said call tomorrow. I think this man needs to take a course on interpersonal skills, he has none! I would not go back there!

Thank you for the three stars. However, think it is important to respond to this review because I think the reviewer is basing her negative comments largely out of anger over a missing pair of sandals.

Firstly, the guest check into our room # 16 and complained about a smoky smell. I immediately moved her to a different room rather than take any chances that this would continue to be an issue and a problem for the guest. I handled the matter promptly and if that seemed short or unfriendly then I do apologize. However, the reviewer reports that the room 16 had worn carpets and furniture. I really have an issue with those comments because they are wildly inaccurate, as both the furniture and carpets are brand new. Both purchased and installed this Month! So I am not sure what the reviewer is talking about with those comments. Of course I am pleased that she was happy with her second room.

Secondly, the reviewer complains that we did not get back to her about her missing sandals. In fact we did get back to her and left a message that he sandals are safe and we are holding them as she requested. I do apologize that the missing sandals were not located more promptly
