My husband and I stayed at The Dunes twice in the past. We could overlook the dated decor because it was clean, taken care of and the owner was extremely nice. Unfortunately, there are new people in charge and things have changed. 1. I made our reservation several months ago and was quoted one price, but was told there was... More

Management is RUDE and not nice to their customers at all!!!! Mrs. Ghandi watches every move the customers make and mistreats her help terribly. Only one car per unit is allowed to park in the parking lot and she will YELL at you to get your car out of the lot. At check out you need to move your car... More

We stayed here 2 nights August 1-3, 2014. The door into the room was cut too high and you could see out. The window was broken and the screen as well and they had a board going across to keep it shut. It was cracked open too. The toilet was not cleaned properly when we arrived, a fast job to... More

I just stayed here with my Husband and 2 Sons..it was my birthday get-away except could not wait to get away from this place! Horrible continental breakfast, awful coffee. Stayed in room 28 with a great view of other people on the balcony and parking lot. They really should not allow smoking near the rooms as a person was chain-smoking... More

We just got back from two nights at the Dunes Motor Inn in S Yarmouth. It was disgusting! The bedspreads were filthy, the blankets were all ripped and grimy, the towels were all old, skimpy and stained. There were cob webs all over. The pillows were lumpy and old. The beds were very uncomfortable. The continental breakfast was a joke!... More

The manager gave us a room w/king size bed (as favor) which was a queen. The room was disgusting. Smelled bad as soon as you walked in the door, the bedskirt was ripped & ragged, the spread was stained & gross, the sheets didn't match & were old, stained & worn. It had a filthy small couch that smelled bad.The... More

great location. Very clean and well kept. The staff was helpful. the only complaint was that the mattress was old. My husband left his watch in the motel and they shipped it back quickly without any problems. I would recommend this motel and I would stay here again.

Just returned from a weekend stay with my Girl Scout troop and another leader. Jack and his wife were gracious hosts - allowing us to use their breakfast room to eat our purchased lunch due to pouring rain. Once the weather improved we saw how great the location was to the beach - literally a 3 minute walk to a... More

Great location, off noisy horrible 28 on a quiet residential street two minutes from the beach and around the corner from a wonderful back road where we walked and biked every morning. If you like fancy, this is not the place. But it is clean, well maintained, has a pool, surprisingly comfortable beds, all necessary amenities in the room (refrigerator,... More
