“Hated it!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2003

Will never stay at this hotel again. The front desk employees were rude upon check-in. If you stay here you better be in good physical shape, cause the elevators are on their last legs.... ride them at your own risk.... we took the stairs. For $200 a night the ceiling should not be coming down in your room. The Golden Griddle restaurant that they rave about so much ..... forget it ... its awful ... the food is lousy and so is the help ... very rude. Sorry, but I have nothing good to say about this hotel..... stay far, far away from the Dunes !

Stayed at the Dunes 6/30/03 thru 7/3/03. Ok for the price, but after seeing all the other hotel options on the oceanfront, would probably stay elsewhere next trip. Room had a musty, wet smell to it, especially if not running the a/c. Doors very hard to close, which resulted in alot of "slamming"noises from adjacent rooms. Very nice staff, excellent view and excellent restaurant.

stayed first week of june 2003 at the dunes virginia beach. For the money the hotel was very good. Had a couple of issues, toilet would not flush, a/c not working but were resolved immediately. The view was great. The Golden Griddle Restaurant was excellent and the staff wonderful. Would stay again.

We stay at the Dunes at least once or twice per year, usually just before the season begins. The staff there is great and our room is always clean.
