This is a motel not a resort, so the accommodations are decent (not luxury). We had 2 adults and 4 children fit comfortably in our room. I loved the location - we walked out our back door and took 20 steps to the beach! The kids enjoyed the pool too. It was a short walk (block or 2) to restaurants....

We rented the 2 bedroom apartment closest to the main road. It was a little noisy but the air conditioners drowned out most of it. The room was comfortable and perfect for our small family. The beds are very firm, but we slept fine. Only complaint was I wanted to take a hot bath for sore muscles and the shower...

First of all - if you're looking for a quiet beach escape - Kure Beach is it. The location of the Sand Dunes is PERFECT! I believe its the last hotel before privately owned homes. Never had any trouble finding a spot on the beach. The pool was nice. I gave this property a 3 for two reasons. First reason...

This is a typical beach motel. Nothing fancy but suited our needs. The front desk receptionist was warm and friendly, made us feel right at home. Our room was ready very early and we were welcomed right away. The room was oceanfront with two queen beds and a full kitchen! The bathroom was spacious as well. It almost felt like...

Very nice place to stay. Room was very clean and nice. The staff were very courteous and friendly. Only bad things were the wifi and parking. The wifi wasn't very useful, and the parking was EXTREMELY tight. Great place to take the family to get away, and very close to the Kure Beach attractions.

We truly enjoyed our weekend stay at Kure Beach in June. We found our room at the Sand Dunes Hotel not only clean but also upgraded with an incredible full kitchen. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. We loved being so close to the pier and having multiple restaurants within walking distance to enjoy. Will definitely stay here...

Nice clean rooms. Within walking distance to the pier. The beach is not crowded at all. If you are looking for a nice motel to take the family this is it. The pool is not fancy, but is adequate. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. It is our favorite place to stay at Kure Beach!

Travel to the area regularly. First time staying at Sand Dunes Motel. The room we had was large (double queen beds) with a galley kitchen and large bathroom with full size bath/shower and a balcony/patio in the back facing the pool but the parking lot is in the back as well, just look past that for a great view of...
