We truly appreciate your continued patronage. We were aware of the internet problem at the end of last year. After much investigation and time we found the source of the problem and it has now been fixed. The WIFI can be accessed from any guest room on the property. You are correct by stating that not all of our guest... More

Considering the price the hotel presents a somewhat of a value. However, there is plenty of room for improvements in the areas of room decor and furnishings, Bathroom appearance is sub par. Its size is tiny - one has to move into a corner in order to close the door. Bath tub in our room had scratches and looked worn... More

Thank you for your feedback regarding your experience at our hotel. We are in the planning stages of making some changes to the décor of our guest rooms. Unfortunately the size of the bathroom is beyond our control but we will definitely have the maintenance department check into the condition of the bathtubs so that future guests do not have...

Rooms were dated but adequate. Breakfast was surprisingly satisfying - eggs, sausage,waffles, yogurt, fruit ,cereal, breads - helped the budget to be included in the price. Tons of pillows, but be sure to ask for extra blankets at the front desk. Plus: Walking distance to the beach - Minus: right on the freeway. Overall, met our needs.

We have stayed in numerous hotels over the last 5 years in Marina and Carmel. The Dunes Inn was very nice and the breakfast was great. Wonderful location and a fantastic price point. Very quiet location.

This was a good short stay. The staff tried to meet our requests and the breakfast area was really busy! The service person was really hustling to keep things picked up and supplied. Although there is no elevator, if you park on the back side there are only 7 steps you would need to go up. In front, it looks... More

I book rooms on the internet for my family and the friend's family. We had a good night in the hotel. The room is clean and cozy, the service is perfect. The city is quiet and beautiful. It is a best option for leisure.

Very clean, great spa in central location. Breakfast area was pretty messy, but other than that.....great hotel and location for the price! Our family loved it and will definitely consider again. Very close to Marina State Beach.
