Sand Dunes is a small "mom & pop" motel located in the very small (one traffic light, no chain restaurants or stores), quaint town of Kure Beach, NC. We stayed on the 3rd floor and had a very nice oceanfront view of the beach, pool & pier. We had a basic kitchen with small stove/oven, full size fridge & microwave.... More

Horrible Motel!!! My wife developed a reaction to the air condition and black mold, They refused to give us a refund when we left early to go to a different motel. My wife ended up having a asthma attack and being treated at the local urgent care. Their rooms smell and you could see black mold everywhere!! They had bed... More

Comfy beds and pillows. Secure and clean. Super location. friendly people. Will go back again.As for the man that said housekeeping didn't make the beds, evidently he did not read the Sand Dunes book when he got there. It says "any personal items left on the bed's and housekeeping will not make up the bed". Well don't leave your personal... More

Our room had been remodeled. The kitchen was nice. Wonderful view and great location. Good resturants and the Pier are a short walking distance. We loved it so much we stayed an extra night. Our sons loved the pool. Housekeeping did a great job. We will be staying here again.

Toilet barely flushes, doors hardly shut, needs updating, housekeeping didn't even make our beds while we were out, no deadbolt in door just a lock on knob. A little high for the price and we had a side view for a room. On the positive, great location and air conditioner.

Staff is very friendly. Told us about the area. Rooms need updated, but were nice and clean. Cleaning staff acknowledged us every time they saw and and were always friendly. Not a bad place to stay for the price. Wish we had gotten a room with a balcony. Missed being able to sit out and look out at the ocean.

When I called to make my reservation I was told that the room we would be reserving had recently been remodeled. Upon our arrival, we turned the AC units on and noticed that one of the AC units from one of... More

I have been coming to Kure Beach since the early 90s and have always stayed at the Sand Dunes. The staff has always been extremely friendly and made me feel welcome. The rooms ( even the old sand Dunes) have always been clean when we arrived and each morning we would leave to do something and return to a very... More
