This was my first visit of the areas and I wasn't expecting a lot. I wanted a place close to the beach, relatively clean, parking, safety and comfort. The Dunes did just OK. There are better choices that will give you free beach access, are closer to the Boardwalk which saves on parking and beach fees. Keep these extra costs... More

Stayed here mon to wed with our kids. They loved the pool and there is a small outdoor terrace where we had breakfast every morning. Beds are comfortable! The rooms are not massive but it was clean and tidy and has everything you need for a few nights. Microwave and fridge freezer in all rooms.

I checked in and then checked out within the hour. For paying $355 for the night I expected a nicer place. I felt like I was on an episode of Jersey Shore. My family and I had a room right next to pool. About 20 men were partying and blaring music. I was so uncomfortable with my family that we... More

I booked this motel fully aware of the negative reviews. But I had also seen that this place recently changed ownership. So I was hoping that this was a change for the better. Let me start my review by letting you know that I am not a primadona. I don't require high levels of luxury, especially for just a night... More

My husband, myself, and 2 children stayed here and we were so happy! Clean rooms, big flat screen TV, microwave, & refrigerator- Coffee is in the main lobby. The pool area was very nice with new lounge chairs. The pool itself was very clean and the water was so warm. They provide discount passes to the beach ($4 off the... More

After spending three weeks in America, travelling through 7 states on a mammoth road trip from Ohio to New York and many places in between this motel ruined our last night on holiday. Dirty, grubby, dated. Itchy, noisy, dodgy. The whole hotel is grimy. The stairs, the carpets, the bathrooms (see photo). Our floor was covered in dust (see photos),... More

Do not stay here. Have to request clean towels each day. They did not clean room once, even after requested. Spend a few extra dollars to stay somewhere that has true customer service and pride. The patio are is dirty. The beach and boardwalk are about a 5 minute ride.

We stayed for two nights the second week in July 2016, was a last minute trip and had originally planned one night, which The Dunes accommodated but our plans changed and The Dunes again accommodated. Room was clean, comfortable and quiet - we had room 15, upstairs in the corner. Large flat screen TV had cable channels but no movies,... More

We were looking for a room near Sea Bright on short notice, this was the only Hotel on the beach that would take a less than four night minimum stay. This is circa 1960. No outlet in the room to charge a phone or plug in a hair dryer. Had to unplug mini fridge to accomplish this. Room very dark... More

This motel misrepresents the accomadations! On the website it states the beach is a minute walk which is not true. It is several blocks from teh motel! The boardwalk is not within a 12 minute walk plus if you drive there is a fee to park! There no restaurants in the immediate area! The room had a musty smell, there... More
