We just stayed here in Aug 2013. After hours on the computer trying to find somewhere nice to stay, I ended up picking this place. It's been about 6 years since we last stayed here and I have to say, they have really remodeled this motel. It's very nice, clean and we had a ball! The pool was nice even... More

Room 120 and likely several others, needs to be gutted! Linoleum floor at entrance had not been cleaned in ages. Feet stuck to floor. Using a sheet of paper towel to clean up a few water drops, the white towel was blackened. Took evidence to front desk. They had floor addressed the next day - well 90% better. When inquired... More

Room smelled musty. Carpet was not clean. Housekeeping staff were nice and caring. TV was a 19" color console. There is no ice machine for guests - you get 1 free bucket of ice per stay. Otherwise you buy 10 lb bags at the office. If you need extra towels you pay $5.00. Location is good you can walk to... More

This place is kind of a dump. The rooms were VERY musty and smelled like smoke, even though we had a "non-smoking room". Carpets turned your socks black. Just didn't feel clean. Maybe OK for a night or two, but I think there are better options out there. Didn't get the impression that the staff cared at all. For the... More

This is a smaller, older motel in the "family beach" town of Kure Beach, NC. Much like Kure Beach's personality, it's quiet and friendly. We like Sand Dunes and stay here often. There's not a lot of frills... but here's what we like: 1) it is a "family" motel - and we have decades of good family memories here 2)... More

The Sand dunes is right on top of the ocean & in walking distance to everything. We stay here when the smaller Motel next door is booked up. Pier, restaurants & stores all so close. Park & walk. Nice pool & staff No fancy Hotel or room service. But to families that like to fish & swim Perfect
