“6th year in a row...wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

We've been staying here for 6 yrs. The rooms have gotten a nice spruce up in the past few years. Good restaurant(s) on site. Happy hour at bar and at beach bar. Pool is small at hotel ( bigger one at motel) Right on beach...wonderful view. Tea time nice for families...( we stuck to happy hour this time..no kids with us) Love this place. Only complaint...our carpet had some bid stains on it...probably recent. Hopefully they will keep up with the place.

Room Tip: All are oceanfront...get one further up.

Ideal beachfront hotel.
The good:
+ Bright, clean, cheerful rooms. Make sure to get a balcony room.
+ Easy access to attractions and boardwalk
+ Hotel food actually pretty good.

The bad:
- Room service. Had to call to have the room cleaned. One day they never came.
- WiFi. Strong signal everywhere but horrible bandwidth. 4g was faster.

Loved the ocean front room with balcony. Staff was friendly and rooms were very clean. Access to the beach was close and easy. Lobby was beautiful. Nice pool area. Food was good. Would definately stay again!

My family has been coming to the Dunes Manor for about 10 years now and would not stay anywhere else in OC. The room renovations are very nice, with tropical colors and updated furnishings, but the lobby and dining room have an old-time elegance without being stuffy. Every room is oceanfront with a balcony, so we love to sleep with the windows opens and hear the ocean, and then have coffee on our balcony in the morning. There is free tea every day at 3:00, which includes hot or iced tea, cookies, and crumpets! It is a nice break in the afternoon and is come as you are, so you will find guests in bathing suits sipping tea on the magnificent oceanview deck. There is also a bar out there if you want something besides tea. The dining room has just added a breakfast buffet which was very good. One caution about payment-even though they say they take all credit cards they will only take Visa for the initial reservation, then when you check in they ask if you want to put the rest of the bill on the "card you made the reservation with". I always say no and give them my American Express card for the remaining days. I feel I'm being pushed to use Visa here.

The hotel service was outstanding. And the Hotel is so clean and unique. The rooms are so nice and spacey. The front desk employees are so helpful and nice. Also tea time is nice and the employees are understanding and helpful with the tea and crumpets. Also the dunes manor is just a couple hundred feet from the beginning of the boardwalk

Room Tip: If you are staying in a suite or 2 joint rooms call the hotel directly before going through Expedia...

Great hotel. Kids loved it parents loved it. Rooms were very clean and access to the beach was perfect. Great beach bar and restaurant. Tea time everyday at 3pm was cute especially for the kids. Tom at the front desk was beyond great. Helpful, personable, very helpful with local knowledge just a downright great guy. Thanks Dune Manor and Tom for a great vacation. We will see you next summer for sure!!!

We have been staying at the Dunes Manor for the past 15 or so years. This year, we were initially unable to find available rooms at the Dunes Manor, so we booked at another hotel. About 3 days before our trip, we found rooms available at the Dunes Manor and changed hotels. After calling the hotel to confirm our reservations, we were disappointed to hear about a discount for booking online (we did not receive any discount). Room rates changed every night. Understandably, rates change on weekends, but every weekday night was a different rate.
Next, during our stay, I received an email for a new Dunes Manor discount program,(circle of friends) however, when asked, we could not use our stay towards this rewards program. In addition, after speaking with other guests, we realized that we paid much more per night than others. Why? I think this is discriminatory.
The prices for the Dunes Manor have increased highly, but other than renovated rooms last year, there were no new amenities to warrant such an increase. I am very disappointed in the manner of which our billing was handled, and when I inquired about it to the front desk my concerns were ignored.
I probably will not be staying at the Dunes Manor in future visits to Ocean City, MD based on this stay.
