If you want to fall asleep listening to the waves on the beach...this is the place! Clean, comfortable, old time motel that is right across the street from a State beach. I recommend getting a room on the second floor so you can sit outside your room and watch the surfers and paddle boarders. They also have a second floor... More

The weather very cold for a motorcycle ride. However, the Dunes was warm and inviting! A hidden gem of a state beach. Beautiful, wide, and with nice facilities. There is reasonably priced, if limited, parking but behind the motel is plenty.

The Dunes Motor Inn has everything; Clean, well maintained rooms; a sparkling clean pool; Jenness State Beach across the street;an intimate, fun bar; an excellent restaurant serving fresh seafood, pasta dishes, hamburgers, twin lobster dinners and more; a super surf shop next door.

We had a nice stay here last June. Our room had recently been re-done, it was fresh and new. The staff was helpful, friendly, and the location is perfect, right across the street from the beach! The breakfast included with the room rate was so-so. This is a fun spot for an over-nighter or weekend get away.

This motor inn is a perfect location if you want to hang out at the beach. There is also a nice swimming pool. The rooms are average and nothing special about them. If you sit on the balcony outside your room on the second floor, you cannot see the ocean across the street because you are below or just about... More

If you like perfect hotel rooms with nice comfortable beds, clean bedding and clean carpeting, then this is not your kind of place. The... More

We have stayed here many times and really like the proximity to the beach. It is literally right across the street, so you can grab your gear and walk to the beach. The actual accomodations are not much to write home about. This is a beach motel, nothing fancy. Some of the outlets in rooms are not grounded, so you... More

The people at this little motel were so nice! The rooms were clean, bright and airy! The pool was crystal clear and set up nicely with lounge chairs, table and umbrellas. The staff did everything they could to make you stay a pleasant one. This motel is directly across the street from the Jenness State Beach. Customers of this motel... More
