I read the reviews before coming. Don't know what some of those people were talking about---I can't find anything wrong with it!! Nice, helpful owners, clean and colorful room, FAST wifi, laundry on grounds, microwave, reefer, good bed. I'm writing from my room because I can't wait to praise it! (no, haven't had breakfast, so i can't talk about that).... More

Our car broke down in Bend ... we called around for a room with 2 beds. The lady on the phone was super nice and when we got there she let us check out the room first (we checked in at a different place prior to the Dunes, that was just disgusting). Room was clean, no weird smell or crusty... More

A typical motel- small but clean. Microwave and refrigerator, free wi-fi, cable TV is intermittent late at night. The bed is very comfortable but everything else is just a little worn. Free breakfast includes fruit (not very fresh), coffee, hot chocolate, instant oatmeal and not very good store bought pastries. I would recommended eating out. At least the rates are... More

I got this motel using Priceline. After reading the reviews on here I was pretty nervous but it wasn't all that bad. FIrst off the room was clean, there was no weird smell, and there was a nice big flat screen TV. I found the bed to be very comfortable. The downsides were that you can hear whenever your neighbor...

I've stayed in a hundred hotels like this one, but I've seen few ever that were as clean, well-maintained, and well staffed as this one. Make no mistake, this is a no-frills motel. No pool, the breakfast is very minimal, etc. But for a place to stay, it's awfully good. I'm very glad to have encountered it and would definitely... More

Go somewhere else. The room smelled foul. The floor was uneven, like there were holes under the carpet. On a very busy street. Walls paper thin. I should have left but was too tired to find another place.

Priceline says 2 star.....Are you kidding me?? Noisy on the busy street old motel.Service was VERY ANGRY even in front of my Wife and Son when I complained about the rating! Had to use a plug in electric heater to keep from freezing! Bates Motel would have been a step up even with Normans bad habits. Left the next morning... More

I chose this hotel because it's pet friendly, and offered a continental breakfast. I believe I paid about $37/night. I tried the continental breakfast once, it was a stale donut, batter bread (also stale) and instant oatmeal. I also brought food in and stored it in the convenient mini fridge and ate in using the microwave. The turntable on the... More

I have been staying at the Dunes off and on for 5 years on business. The Kumar's are continually improving the rooms and the building. In the dozens of towns that I travel I have yet to find a better motel in this price range. Clean, great beds, modern and up to date. I also use the Dunes when my... More
