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

This location is great! Just a short walk from the beach. We did have a full size fridge in our room and the whole kitchenette is really good to have. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The bathroom was very old and the water temperature was very hard to control making it hard to shower. The water in the... More

An older building run by mom and pop but clean. Pool on the premises and a 3 minute walk away from the beach. For the rates being charged this is a bargain without any real compromise. Friendly staff who do a great job. Fridge, microwave and wifi included.

The room for 4 is very big, there's a walking closet and another cabinet that wasn't clean enough to put my stuff inside, though. The owner, not the kindest, asked us a couple of time if we needed new towels and the room to be done, is that a question to make? The bathroom is old-style, small. The swimming pool... More

The Dunes was a very good choice! We arrived at 10:00am and were able to check in about 10:30. It is literally .2 miles to the beach with free parking! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Definitely a trip back there soon!

We were driving late night around South Yarmouth looking for a place to crash. Many local motels did not have a live attendant. These guys were up and available and came through at the important time. No thrills motel yards from the beach. Can not beat this when in need.

My wife Linda and I stayed at The Dunes Motor Inn for six nights recently. The location could not be better. We could use our bicycles to go every where and virtually forget about the car.
