We have stayed at the Sand Pebble numerous times. It's a nice motel, the people are very friendly who run it, and there's a heated pool right outside your door which is nice. There's also grill service at the pool which we found very convenient. It's in a great location, you just have to cross the street and you're right at the beginning of the boardwalk. Pt. Pleasant is wonderful, especially for families. Do you have kids? If so, the Sand Pebble has L-shaped suites that aren't too expensive, and also larger units (in their new building directly across from the motel) which you can rent by the week.

Save yourself - stay away from the Dunes Hotel. It is not fit to stay

in due to excessive mold, odors, noise, and filth. If you find

yourself considering this location, do yourself a favor and read ALL of the

negative reviews for this hotel. I am convinced that the positive

reviews were written by the managers and their friends - who spend their days on the patio, listening to excessively loud foreign music while chain

smoking and drinking. Not suitable for families or people who desire a

reasonable level of cleanliness.

I had a reservation last July to bring my mother to the shore for a few days. It was so bad, we had to drive all the way back home that same day. There was no way we could stay in this place, and there were no vacancies at any of the better hotels/motels. It really is that bad.

I'm with you on the same about the Amethyst Hotel in Point Pleasant. I just stayed there July 20, 2006 and we were put in their "suite" room 138. yuck!!!! I felt it was sooooo old and moldy and musty. Sheets were so old and pitted. I had to wear my flip flops and would not step my bare feet on rug that smelled foul. I was afraid of two things...bed bugs, which thankfully there were none and candid cameras, if you know what I mean. The vents and the ceiling panels were disgusting. I did a quick walk thru the pool area and saw another room quickly, was not impressed at all. I am not sure who writes some of the comments but this room at least should be demolished and they should start over. I was so glad to get out of there. We had no choice and had to stay the night but Never again!

The staff was pleasant enough. No problem there. But I really think this hotel should be cleaned and updated at the least.

I will no longer go to Pt Pleasant NJ where there are so many other nice family jersey shores to pick from.
