My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Dunes Motel a week ago. We stayed in a double queen room. The room and bathroom were both extremely clean. The outside of the property was just as clean. Beds were comfortable. We were 2 short blocks, an easy walk from the beach. 2 blocks from 96th street the shopping and... More

We stayed in one of the pod rooms. It is great for 2 people. Not a lot of room but thats okay because we don't spend much time in the room anyway. The room is clean - outdated to be sure but clean. My big gripe is the smell. It smelled like ammonia. When we were in the room we... More

Stayed in one of the pod rooms they have. POD IS the word. If your old enough to remember the tv show green acres, then you know what i Mean. This room is big enough for a queen bed but hardly anything else. No room to put a suitcase (closed) on the floor.Mid 60's era pink tile in the bathroom.... More

First time @ this motel. Last minute trip so glad to find a vacancy. Good location, quiet street. A little pricey for what you get, such as 1 towel per guest & darn small/thin ones at that. No cross ventilation so it's necessary to run the a.c. which was super noisy. Clean but miniscule bathroom w/ no shelf space. Few... More

Typically a beach hotel just needs to be functional and clean and this one is. There was an odd smell that I couldn't quite place and there were some quirky things, like when I checked in I had 5 small bars of soap but no shampoo. Location is close to downtown, I was there in off-season so parking was easy.... More
