3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

It was not as nice as the photos. It was a little dirty than I would have liked. The bed was not very comfortable and the bedding was older and it just felt like they needed a good cleaning. The shower was ok but the towels were a bit harsh. It's ok for a quick, late night stay.

Pros (not in order): appeared clean; refrigerator in room; microwave in room; next to Black Bear Diner (no breakfast available at motel); reasonably priced Cons (not in order): no bathroom fan; no breakfast; cramped parking; small room; pitifully slow wifi (less than half a megabit per second!! -- inexcusable in these modern times) Overall, it's fine for a night or...

Making a lot of improvements to make it a nicer looking building. The operators are a very nice couple. Their rooms have also been improved and they are clean and well appointed. A good value for the price.

Passing through Bend on a road trip, we stopped here as the price was reasonable for Bend in summer and all we needed was one night with clean and comfortable room. We found both here. They have made the most of this older property. While the room and bath are smaller than newer properties, the bath floor had been tiled... More

The rooms are good sized, with a table & chairs, frig/freezer, microwave, etc. Our room was very clean and the shower was awesome. Good location - convenient to restaurants (Black Bear Diner across the street -- Dutch Bros coffee nearby), gas, and other shops. Check-in was smooth, we had no problems. The air conditioner could have been better, it took... More

We were driving South on our way to San Francisco when we came to Bend late at night. All the Inn's and hotels were fully booked, so Dunes Motel had really juiced up their rate - $ 189 for a night. Definitly not Worth that rate, but it saved our day. Clean room, quiet area.

We frequently travel to Bend for medical reasons. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. It is very reasonably priced and we doubt you could find a room this nice for the price. It is convenient to the hospital and our doctor's office. The owners and staff are very accommodating and go out of their way to make sure our... More

The Dunes is a nice place to stay. My friends and I rented a room and they were very accomodating when we split the room over a couple of cards. The staff was friendly and the room was standard. The best thing about the room was the water pressure in the shower. It was amazing! Usually motels have showers that... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and were pleased with our stay. This is not a chain motel, so you don't know what to expect. But our room was surprisingly wel decorated and well kept. There was a fridge and a microwave and a coffeemaker. The rates are cheap for this town and that's what makes this place... More

Room was clean and looked nice. There was not enough hot water to shower, though, and when we complained the management didn't seem to care. We will find a better rate next time elsewhere. Seemed like a lot of money to pay for cold showers.
