“A family favorite!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

I have been staying at the Sand Pebble every summer for over 10yrs! It's so nice to return with my kids year after year..they love it! The larger room with the fridge/microwave is perfect so we can bring snacks and drinks. The pool is always spotless, and the poolside grill is the best. Breakfast and lunch without having to walk to the boardwalk or get in the car. Joe and Fran run the grill and they're so sweet. They blow up the pool toys and give ice pops to the kids. We're going back tomorrow for our annual stay..can't wait!

I stayed at the Sand Pebble last weekend with a friend and it was perfect! After calling various hotels in the area this place was easily $60-$100 less expensive for two nights than all of the others. The reviews were good so we made our reservation.

Check-in was super easy and quick, staff was friendly, and they gave us all the information we needed. The room was very clean and basic, which was perfect for us because we were out and about in the neighborhood and really only used the room to shower and sleep. This place has a GREAT location, far enough from the boardwalk that it's not super loud at night, but so close that I didn't even move my car from the time we checked-in to the time we checked-out.

The best part of this place is the discounted $2 beach passes for Jenkinson's beach, which is practically right across the street. They normally cost $8.50 per person so this was a great deal. I also noticed that someone earlier mentioned the lack of coffee makers in the room, but as an avid coffee drinker I was more than happy with the $1 cup I got at the poolside snack shack, breakfast was good and inexpensive too!

Overall we were very happy with our stay and we will absolutely be back!

Room Tip: We had a room upstairs in the south building (I believe it was the south building, it's the one...

Loved it!!!! Many times we have gone to PPB and always stay somewhere else more expensive. This was cheaper. The place was immaculate. I have stayed at 4 star hotels that were not this clean. The property is well maintained. Location- one block from beach!! Does it get any better? Water is hot. Bed is very comfortable. Towels and washcloths rough, but people probably take them. We will definitely make this our new regular . Should be number 1.

I stayed here with my boyfriend last summer for a weekend trip that we took together. We had a great time and a great stay here! All of the staff were super friendly and helpful to us; it was our first time in the area. Our room, sheets, and towels were clean and the AC was super cool. The location could not be any better. It's in a quiet area but still within walking distance of everything (beach, boardwalk, bars, etc.) I would stay here again for sure if I am ever in the area again! Thanks for a great stay, Sand Pebble!

The Sand Pebble is our go to destination when staying in Point Pleasant. It is conveniently located near the boardwalk. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The prices are decent and we love that the pool is always clean. We have tried other hotels in the area and this is your best bet!

Reviewed 28 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

we enjoyed this hotel itself, but it sells you a beach pass that is several blocks away!
meanwhile there is a beach at the end of the block, which you cannot use their pass at- it seemed very odd that they would not have an agreement with the beach right next to their hotel.
the breakfast bar is a great feature and the pool is kept clean

Thank you for the kind words. I would like to take this opportunity to adress the beach pass issues that the reviewer raised.

The town of Point Pleasant Beach has beach areas that are owned by differant corporate entities. The beach directly across the street from us does not sell "group passes" to hotels or anybody else. They can only be purchased by individuals at full price, they make no exceptions and they do not negotiate. So we did think about beach passes across the street, in fact we thought about in over 30 years ago and continue to explore our options.

What the reviewer fails to mention is that the beach passes we provide for a very nominal fee, is for Jenkinsons, the most popular beach area in town. It is were all the restaurants, rides, games, arcades and public restrooms are located. Additionally, It is only about a five minute walk to get to this beach area. Most, but not all, of our guests prefer to go to this location.

If the reviewer was inconvenienced by this I do apologize and I thank them for their patronage.

Very nice, relaxing family atmosphere. Very clean, both in rooms and also poolside. The staff is very friendly and always ready to answer any questions. Good location and safe area. Very quiet hotel, definitely not for the party-lovers!

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank this reviewer and all our guests who took the time out of their busy lives to write such kind and positive reviews. We worked very hard to get the hotel in shape and it was wonderful that so many came back to the jersey shore. For those of you who decided to make other plans this year I hope you give us another try next year.

We are nothing without our guests and we like to treat our guests like family. The positive reviews you leave on trip advisor is a huge part of our business. We also appreciate those who may not write a review, but they will go home and tell friends and family about us. So once again thank you to all the guests who made the summer of 2013 possible. We hope to see you all again happy and healthy for summer of 2014.
