The room was clean, frig didnt work but the location was great. I brought my own towels, which I recommend doing. My tv kept my nieghbor up and i got an evil look from them in the morning. I can hear someone snoring when it was off. Cant do much about thin walls!

I try to find good in everything possible but have found it simply a stretch to find even one positive for this place. So instead of getting the peaceful night's sleep I paid for, I'm writing a review because I can't sleep. It's 1 AM and I've been listening to nothing but pounding feet on the floor above, blaring TV's,... More

Booked a reservation there but due to a better deal I cancelled well outside of the notice that they ask (about 5 days prior to stay). Despite their reservation notices saying that they won't charge you until you stay, they put a $158 charge to my credit card immediately. I called and asked the person at the front desk to... More

Thank you for your input. We have always received a one night deposit for reservations. This was in place for the past 20 years. Cancellation policy during peak is clearly stated that if you cancel within 5 days of arrival we are subject to charge two nights stay. It is a busy season and we cannot accommodate everyone but we... More

I spent the weekend on the Cape with 3 friends celebrating my birthday. The Dunes Motor Inn was a very nice place to stay. A short 4 minutes walk to the beach. The hotel is in need of some updating but it seems they are in the process of doing just that. We stayed in the apartment above the lobby... More

Staying at the Dunes Motor Inn was like staying with an older relative. Old fashioned decor and service. Extremely clean. A real key. A short walk to the beach. Stylish? No. What we were looking for? Yes.

Budget Motel with a breakfast and a pool, not much more than that. Not that clean (floor left our socks black) or inviting (dark rooms with a cramped feel) but spent most of the time at the beach, which is only a short walk away. Good luck to you and your travels.

It's a great place for a young family on a budget. There's breakfast served and the Mom of the Mom and Pop owners was a lovely lady. The Pop struggled with the check in. We had to fill out a paper card. The room was really worn out. I didn't want to walk in my bare feet. The bedspread was... More

For one night, it wasn't bad. The price and location to beach was great. The air conditioning worked and water pressure of shower was excellent. Beds were comfortable. The mirror in the bathroom was actually laughable...12x12 square and hung to high! I think the new owners are trying very had to make it over..but they have a lot of work... More
