I stayed in this quaint motel with it's delicious breakfast for several years back in the 90's. On a recent trip to the Cape I decided to stay here as my 1st choice was fully booked. Unbeknown to me the motel has changed hands and the new owner have not kept up the cleanliness. It looked nice from the outside... More

Yah know I just feel bad cause if I ran a motel I would have things so nice and perfect. It was doable but....outdated awful red striped bedspreads, terrible white carbs only continental breakfast, no fruit or yogurt or waffles, limited tea choices. Only good thing was the walk to the beach right down the street. And it is off... More

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

Hello, Thank you for your feedback. We are very much a family friendly place despite what you have written and not a true reflection of our intent. We have been forced into placing a sign that asks our guests to keep the noise down due to the fact our neighbor directly behind the pool has filed a lawsuit for noise... 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.
