First time @ this motel. Last minute trip so glad to find a vacancy. Good location, quiet street. A little pricey for what you get, such as 1 towel per guest & darn small/thin ones at that. No cross ventilation so it's necessary to run the a.c. which was super noisy. Clean but miniscule bathroom w/ no shelf space. Few... More

Typically a beach hotel just needs to be functional and clean and this one is. There was an odd smell that I couldn't quite place and there were some quirky things, like when I checked in I had 5 small bars of soap but no shampoo. Location is close to downtown, I was there in off-season so parking was easy.... More

Great place for a long weekend in Stone Harbor. We probably got the very last vacancy on the island for the Labor Day Weekend -- the Pod. Compact and clean and decorated nicely like the other Dunes rooms. Use of beach tags included. No parking spot for this room, but we did find parking up at the beach. Walk to... More

We enjoyed our stay in August 2012 at the Dunes. It was very clean. We had a two queen bed room with kitchen. The kitchen had full frig, cook top, toaster, coffeepot and pans and dishes. It was a short walk to the beach. One parking spot is included in the rental which is by the night. We did have... More

High quality motel. We stayed one night at the dunes motel. without question or hesitation they gave us the key and let us check out the room before booking. When we walked into the room it was clean, with a full size fridge/freezer, microwave, stove, and plates/pots pans etc. The beds were comfortable, and we got good sleep. The balcony... More

We come to Stone Harbor for a few days when we can't get away for a real beach vacation. I'm not a fan of the pricing model of these motels...it's annoying...and expensive...but as far as motels go, they don't get much better. The room was very clean, beds were big and fairly comfy, but the bathroom is tiny and the... More
