“Great place to stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

I really enjoyed staying at this motel. The staff were very friendly and the price was reasonable. I liked the location of the Boardwalk to the motel (hop, skip, and a jump away) Very clean rooms and they were pretty roomy. Would recommend staying here.

We had a wonderful time at The Dunes Motel. The location is the best. You don't have all the noise from downtown but yet it is close enough that you can walk a couple blocks or ride a bike or take the bus to all the action. Beautiful ocean front. The room was perfect and always clean!

Room Tip: Ocean front efficency's are the best! Morning sunrise is beautiful and sunset is even better.

Every year we visit OCMD, it's like our 2nd home. Unfortunately we won't be returning to the dunes after our July 2012 visit. This is upsetting because they were our favorite motel to stay at. We stayed on pool side during this visit. Their housekeeping staff needs to do a better job instead of fulling around. A couple times we caught the housekeeping staff pushing one another inside the basket for the laundry and our room wouldn't be made up and it would be cutting it close to their time to leave around 3pm. We complained multiple times about this while we had our stay.

We have stayed here multiple times over the past 4+ years and always enjoy our stay. This stay was shortened by Hurricane Sandy. We decided to leave a day early (Saturday) because we had a 6.5 hour drive ahead of us and did not want to deal with the wind and rain. On check out I had expected to pay for the entire reservation time but that was not the case. We were only charged for the nights we stayed which is very much appreciated.

We enjoy staying here because the rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff is always friendly and accommodating, we never saw the housekeeping staff yet the room was taken care of daily. The location is perfect at the end of the boardwalk. We enjoy walking, it's a nice 4.5 mile walk from the motel to the inlet and back.

Room Tip: Best views are from the 3rd to 5th floors. If staying during cruise weekend ask for a room on the s...

We had to get to our seasonal trailer to collect some things before hurricane sandy hit. So decided to leave friday after work and stay somewhere until morning. We wanted ocean front to see what was happening that night..this place was perfect. It was very clean and pretty much updated. It sits just before the start of the boardwalk. The views are the best. The rates were very good that day and for what ever reason that morning the coffee they provide was some of the best ever...

Room Tip: best views are 2nd floor and above

I read many reviews before selecting this motel and they had prepared me for what we found. While this is not a new property with amazing amenities, it had everything we needed, was clean and had a great view - all at a reasonable price. I will reiterate a point I read in another review, the Wi-Fi is spotty. Most times I had to stand on the west facing walk way to get the wi-fi. We would stay here again!

Room Tip: Make sure to be on the 2nd floor or higher if you want to see the ocean from your room.
