We traveled 8 hours from Baltimore city with a 20 month-old to stay at the Ocean Dunes. We were taken aback by the appearance of the place as it did not seem to fit the photos we saw on the internet. We were led to our room: a filthy, old, 2-bedroom apartment with a tiny bathroom (with no bathtub for our son as we'd requested). The furniture was so cheap that a corner table fell over on us when touched and later crushed our toddler. The tv didn't work properly and was attached to the wall via a bungee cord. There was an exposed electrical outlet and the ceiling fans didn't work (p.s. no air conditioning at this gem). We discovered that children weren't even allowed at the place in general! That we were so completely misled by the management into thinking this place was "child-friendly." This place is in fact occupied mainly by retirees, who like the quiet, peaceful location, but who do not appreciate a toddler playing and laughing outside before 9 a.m. Though management (with one exception, the rudest management I've ever encountered) did switch our room for us the next morning, our new room was not enough of an improvement to make our trip worth the money. And they still insisted we pay for the first night--a whopping $550.00 per night! Days into the trip, we found out that the maid service only makes beds and empties trash--they do NOT do any cleaning unless requested and they are never happy when you request it. We returned home with a roach in one of our bags and flea bites on our ankles. We paid an astronomical price for this accommodation and feel completely misled and ripped-off.
