It's a great place for a young family on a budget. There's breakfast served and the Mom of the Mom and Pop owners was a lovely lady. The Pop struggled with the check in. We had to fill out a paper card. The room was really worn out. I didn't want to walk in my bare feet. The bedspread was... More

For one night, it wasn't bad. The price and location to beach was great. The air conditioning worked and water pressure of shower was excellent. Beds were comfortable. The mirror in the bathroom was actually laughable...12x12 square and hung to high! I think the new owners are trying very had to make it over..but they have a lot of work... More

Reported it to the office and it looked like they only brushed it off and flipped it over as i still found some afterwards. Ac unit... More

We booked 3 rooms with 2 double beds for 2 nights through Expedia for our promo models who were working in the Cape this past weekend. I called a week beforehand to verify they had the reservations in place. The woman I spoke to had to call me back because she couldn't find the reservations (computer troubles maybe). She called...

We enjoyed our stay at The Dunes. The room was very clean, the bed and pillows were comfortable, and the location was a brief walk from the beach. The NEW management was very accommodating! Jack and staff were so welcoming, gave good suggestions for restaurants and places to visit, and they were very friendly! This place was reasonably priced and... More

We have just returned from our week long stay at The Dunes Motor Inn. We just love it there! It is a great little motel with casual, comfortable and clean accommodations. The staff is friendly and very accommodating. You have everything you need there and the beach is just a 3 minute walk away. My children absolutely love the pool,... More

We booked this place just a couple of days before our vacation trip as other places seemed to be sold out, and this one had a fully equipped kitchen and a free breakfast. These features were important to us due to our little one as he is a picky eater(although we did not use kitchen much as we spent most... More

We loved it here so affordable and the location was beautiful! It's set in a tree lined neighborhood on a back street and just steps from the ocean! You can walk to so many beaches and go for free! They charge 20 only to park a car at them so it's free to walk! The room may be a little... More

Enjoyed our return trip to this small out of the way hotel. Walking distance to the ocean, but close enough to very nice resorts and resturants. Driving to town is a short distance with great shopping.
