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

The Dunes motor inn is the place to be. Beautiful views, lovely staff, great management. Everyone is very helpful, always smiling. The pool is absolutely gorgeous, water glistening in the sun. I wish it wasn't seasonal, I would come stay year round. If your ever out on the coast of route 1A looking for a place to stay, this is... More

Great location right across the street from Jenness State Park beach but that's the only good thing about this place. As most of the other reviews say, the rooms are in desperate need of updating. Rooms need new furniture, beds, linens, towels, bathroom fixtures,TV (from this century please), AC, window screens, carpeting, fridge. The shower alternates between scalding and freezing... More

This place is dated but that is not the problem. The place is really unsafe. The floor boards feel as if they will let go at any minute and you will go crashing through to the room below. The deck outside the room is even worse. We stayed over the 4th of July and the temps reached 94 and up.... More

We stayed for 3 nights and the kids loved it. Beach right across the street, pool clean and inviting, staff friendly and always available. This motel is NOT fancy, no bells or whistles; and in desperate need of a good interior paint job; however it was quiet and directly across from the beach.
