I have stayed here once with a friend. Both of us brought one child. The hotel is right across the street from a pubic state beach. There is a large road and parking lot so don't count on a view, but it is a short walk to the beach. They have a nice outdoor pool which is in between the... More

Yes, it's old, and not very updated, but wonderful place to meet family and friends for 4th of July get togethers. This is a Family run motel and yes, it does have a following, of which my family is very loyal! And I WILL add that I live in Arizona and plan my vacation so that I can join my... More

Okay, I want to be as objective and impartial as possible about this old beach side motel.. We stayed at this hotel because we wanted to be on the beach. Cost was $175 per night. This hotel was built in 1960 and hasn't seen much updating since. Room was clean, but the housekeepers are shoveling against the tide here, since... More

I consider The Dunes my ultimate get away and hiding place. I love the old school vibe of the people and the structure. It is always clean, friendly and warm. I have been going for 21 years and I have also been to many other places throughout N.E. and worldwide but The Dunes has a unique charm and attracts the... More

This summer, we had a chance to experience this fine motel with extremely good dining. It happens to be across the street from a wonderful beach and next door to a fantastic Surf Shop (Summer Sessions)! It was fun for the whole family! Surf lessons for all or walks along the beach.

I stayed at the Dunes Motor Inn from 9/9-9/11/2013, and it more than met my expectations! The room was lovely and clean and the bed was comfortable. The ocean view from the room and the balcony outside was priceless and the close proximity to the beach was such a plus. The pool was sparklingly clean.The staff was professional, warm, welcoming,...

We have been travelling to New Hampshire for the past 3 years and each time have stayed here at the Dunes for a long weekend. The hotel is located far enough away from the center of Hampton Beach where it is not as crowded. It is an average hotel not necessarily updated with the best accommodations but if you are... More

If you are looking for the Taj Mahal, this isn't it, you can go to other seacoast towns for that. This is an incredibly clean, fun, family oriented place. It is a 60's throwback in time to the days of Motor Inn's. You can see that as soon as you pull up; so reviews that put the place down, must... More

This is certainly a family oriented but VERY nice motor inn. The location is by far awesome as you are a few steps away from a very lovely beach. The grounds are well maintained and their flower gardens are lovely. The motor inn has a rather large pool area which is very well kept. I do have a granddaughter who... More
