Stayed at the Dunes hotel in the two bedroom efficiency apartment on July 26.The apartment was comfortable and well kept.The kitchen was not fancy but we could get our meal together and save on eating out.The carpet was new and the decor was pleasing and the staff was very helpful.Overall a great experience would recommend it for families.

Dont go by photos on web site....it does not look like that at all. I should have gone by the other reviews and stayed away, but I did not and regret spending that much money on such a gross place. When we pulled up and they had vacancies I should have run. We rented the 2 room efficiency apartment. Omg.....from... More

Very clean, though also very old. However, it's best feature is the immaculate,csparkling clean pool. We stayed here with 3 children and the 2 bedroom apt. was perfect for us. The location is a block from the beach, but we loved the pool even more. I recommend handicap bars in the shower/tub, because it is old and deep, and difficult... More

Staff was friendly and accommodating. Gave me a good rate. Allowed me a late check out at 2:00 for an extra $20 bucks. Room had no bathtub only walk-in shower. Was fairly clean. Nothing to write home about. Beds were comfortable. No breakfast provided. After you book the room you are pretty much on your own. They did provide a... More

A nice quaint motel, clean but a little small no place to hang clothing and air conditioner was very loud. The house keeping has a lot to be desired did not leave new soap each day so bring your own and never replaced disposable cups. Close to beach and amusements.. overall no real problems

I can't say that this motel was a 5-Star hotel (no motel can be that). The room was very clean (I checked every corner like that guy from "Hotel Impossible"). The TV was nice - we ended up watching a lot of TV on the second day of our stay due to bad weather. The pool was great - pristine... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights. Not the greatest place to stay for a minimal expectation weekend stay. The hot water and water pressure were very inconsistent (after waiting 5min I gave up and took a cold shower), there was a slight ant issue near the bathroom on the wall (nothing crazy but still), two of the...

We were just at the Dunes Motel for 2 nights from 8/23-8/25. We are a family of 4, with 2 children under the age of 10. The location can't be beat. We went to Maryland Ave Beach which was gorgeous! They gave us discount passes at check-in and it was only a short distance from the motel. We walked down... More
