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

Two small, rolly-polly, double beds that rock like a boat. Clean. Sufficient AC. No fresh air. Front window opens but screen cut from apparent prying screw driver allowing zero security should one of the noisy, smoking guests who hang on the balcony all hours of the night, SMOKING, TALKING loudly, want to open it and welcome themselves. Pool looks ok... More

I have to say that I was pretty excited at first as this hotel told us they had a 2 bedroom apartment we could rent for the night as we had several children, my wife and I. They accommodated us a out a week before when we could not find anything else to suit us. Upon arrival they were able... More

The room was nice, but I didn't like that there was no place to hang anything. The bathroom was very small, but it worked. There was some mold on the shower curtain, but there was not exhaust fan in the bathroom so I'm guessing that's why. Over all, it was a little sketchy, and I wouldn't have wanted to stay... More
