“Great motel, friendly and knowledgeable staff, clean rooms! Can't get better for the price!”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

Been coming to Tybee nearly every year since 1998. Have stayed at 2 other places on the island, but The Dunes is our "go-to" place to stay because of price, the staff and the cleanliness of the rooms. Diane and Joy are wonderful people to work with and will make sure that you have everything you need. I've seen reviews where people indicated that they didn't have enough towels or pots and pans or whatnot, and honestly, all you need to do is to ask the front desk staff and all of those things will be provided for you. We stayed for 4 nights this time, but I've already got the dates for next year mapped out and we'll be staying at The Dunes for 5 nights! Can't wait. You really can't get more central than this to everything - restaurant/bar, convenience store, grocery store, library, and the most important thing of all - it's a one block walk to the beach! We swam in the pool this year for the first time ever, and were very impressed with the cleanliness of it. The rooms seem to be being upgraded from time to time and the management certainly does well with making improvements as they can be done. I cannot tell you just how much I appreciate having the tile floors - I far prefer the tile in the beach environment to having dirty carpet. Overall this motel is wonderful and we've definitely found the place on Tybee is stay year after year.

Room Tip: Kitchenette is a great way to save money on food costs. Bring your own food or walk 4 blocks to the...

The hotel was not more than we expected but it did the trick for what we needed. we were even staying in a smoking room and it was not an overwhelming smell for us nonsmokers. clean linens. everything worked that we needed to work and free breakfast. nothing fancy but enough.
my husband didnt like the extremely firm matress and you may want to bring your own pillows. even having extras they are completely flat...
everyone treated us nicel and we would come back if the opportunity ever presented itself.
thanks to Joy for quicka nd easy check out!

Room Tip: we had a king jacuzzi room and made good use of those jets on our arms and legs!

Sounds like you and your husband had a very relaxing weekend, Jeanna! While I'm thrilled that you chose to stay with us, I'm sorry if our mattress was too firm for your liking. We would have been happy to move you to another room, so don't hesitate to ask next time! That aside, thanks so much for the wonderful review. We hope to welcome you back again soon!

I loved staying here last summer. Close to everything. The place is clean and the staff was great.
Just aren't able to make reservations online at this time from this November to next June. Can you please fix the site on tripadvisor so reservations can be made.

Was a great place to stay the room was clean and within walking distance to a lot of restaurants and right across the street from the beach. Staff was really friendly especially Joy checking in was a breeze and Joy gave us a map of the island along with suggestions on places to visit during our stay. We will defiantly stay here again.

We have been going to Tybee for many years now and this is the second time we stayed here for our week long get-away. This year even better than last year. They have remodeled the rooms in the rear building and they are really nice especially the bathrooms with the large tiled shower. The very nice pool was also redone this year. Rooms and property are clean and well maintained. Pride in ownership shows as you will see the owner's family and employees all day cleaning and tidying up. When Joy is at the front desk you can be assured of top level service - and a good cup of coffee! ;) There is a one block walk to the beach and if you can tolerate this you will save 50-70% on a room here. Don't forget your bikes as Tybee was voted one of the most bike friendly towns in the US (we didn't start the car till we were to leave the island this year). Don't forget to go to North Beach Grill several times while visiting. See ya'll next year!

We needed a pet friendly hotel on Tybee Island and were not disappointed with the Dunes Inn. It was the off season, they charge $35 one time fee for the stay, and the room rate was an amazing $60/night. The rooms were first floor with tile floors which was really convenient for walking the dog. There are plenty of places to walk the dog that are safe after dark. Dogs arent allowed on the beach but there are sidewalks near the dunes that you can walk the dogs on. The lobby of this place probably needs a little updating and the aquarium desperately needs cleaning but this is a great place to stay when visiting with your pet

Room Tip: You can request smoke free rooms. I didn't realize many places on the island still allow smokin...

We stayed two weeks at The Dunes Inn, the first week was great, nice staff, clean room. Then we moved to the back for a bigger room, still, a nice room, everything was good, The only problem we had was being woke up at 5am by nieghbors making a big rucus, and by the local drunks, one which tried to approach me when I stepped outside, which my husband was quick to stop. We alerted the front desk, but was told there wasnt much they could do. Was planning on staying another week, but changed our mind after that. All in all, nice plce, clean rooms, the lady at the lobby, Joy, was very sweet and was always ready to help make our stay comfortable.
