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...

I called sand dunes to ask about the daily and weekday specials, per the website's suggestion, when Jennifer answered. She seemed very inconvenienced by my call, told me she was busy and that she would have to call me back. I started to give her my information but she was still so rude that I told her nevermind, I would...

This is the only place we stay. We always get the same room which is very spacious, clean and wifi accessible. Owners are super nice. Everything is within walking distance. We actually stayed at another hotel one year and that was a huge mistake! Highly recommend staying here.

Absolutely positively cannot say enough about this motel. From the owners to the staff you can't find greater customer care. The motel is extremely clean, grounds well maintained, and again the CUSTOMER CARE MAKES IT THE BEST PLACE TO STAY on the Carolina Beach Coast - and we have stayed at many.

Our room was ocean view, on the third floor. We had a kitchen with full size fridge, stove and sink. Rooms were immaculate and comfy. This is NOT a high dollar resort...just a small motel on the beach. The price was less than $100/night. There is no elevator. Enjoyed our stay!

Cannot say enough about how wonder-filled our stay was. Hats off to the "owner" and "all the staff" - they know the meaning of customer care. The property is well maintained and comfortable. We've stayed at several different oceanfront hotels on the Carolina Beach / Kure Beach and there is no question ... we will be back to the Sand...
