“Elegant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

My family has been staying in this hotel for years and everytime we stay in it, all the memories flashback. It is almost Victorian-style on the outside. It is very elegant n the inside. Some parts of the building are dated, but that is all overlooked by the lovely lobby. There is a piano at which a person usually plays in the evening and it makes us guests feel at home. The rooms are aging, but it feels like home. This may be a little pricy, but when you stay in a clean room in a nice hotel, you forget about that! It's not for everyone, but you should try this nice hotel out!

Room Tip: It doesn't matter what room you stay in. They all have an Ocean Front view.

The hotel is really old style Victorian. The staff was nice. The rooms are really old, low ceilings, a lot of rust, small bathroom, etc. however it is clean. The view is excellent, beautiful oceanfront and only one block from the boardwalk (the end of the boardwalk). It is not fitting for a younger couple. The price is not worth it in my opinion.

If you like to have a beautiful oceanfront, with an okay room and old Victorian Style Charm, than this is the place for you.

I will not return only because the rooms needs to be updated and its not worth the price.

We have stayed at the Dunes Manor Hotel in Ocean City Maryland for over 25 years. We love the location and the staff has always treated us well. The lobby is inviting and the cozy bar is a relaxing place to visit and enjoy some of the best drinks in O.C. The dining room staff is great as is breakfast. The dinner meals are not as good as years past and the menu lacks imagination. One major area of concern are the condition of the rooms. They are in need of major renovation. Housekeeping does a good job but the bathrooms are old and in fair to poor condition. The TV's date back to years gone by. The beds are not comfortable and the worn sheets do not always fit. Management needs to heed this and other similar reviews and revive the Dunes Manor back to what was the best place to stay in Ocean City. We want to return!!!!

Always interesting when writing a review, your perspective depends on what you want. If you want an updated, new high tech oceanfront hotel in Ocean City with an oceanside pool; this is not the hotel for you. If you are looking for old fashioned elegance. Quiet and want to sit on the porch in a rocking chair drinking your coffee in the morning or iced tea in the afternoon this is the hotel for you. I go off season, during the week, to the Dunes Hotel to chill. It is so relaxing and comforting. I have always found it clean. But realistically it is an older hotel and it shows but in my opinion that is part of its elegance.

Room Tip: You can watch sunrise over the ocean from the oceanfront rooms on the higher floors.

Recently stayed for the wine fest. I am never disappointed at Dunes Manor and have stayed here several times in the past 15 years. I love the family orientation, exceptional cleanliness, and friendly hospitality. Will definitely reserve for next year as well.

Family reunion took place here because organizers had come to Dunes Manor since childhood. Alas, all things were exactly as they were 40 years ago. The foyer looks promising and has a certain charm. The sitting area surrounds a piano which serves as the musical center of the night time singalongs. The bar is warm and rewarding. The male bartender has the knack! Best martini and Manhattan I've had in years. But the room were atrocious. Carpet, "linens," and towels were 40 years old. The ocean front rooms had death-defying patios in old cinderblock materials. Ugly and menacing. The view of the ocean and beach is beautiful, but the framing patio is starkly outdated. The place deserves a facelift.

Room Tip: Go to a different property.

yes she is a little old fashion but has great bones and super clean the workforce is very courteous and quick to respond to requests,called down for extra towels somebody was at my door in 2 minutes with them.Was told they will be upgrading the rooms over the winter hopefully the character of the place will not change.The location at north end of boardwalk is ideal away from all the noise of the Inlet area and all rooms are oceanfront with a great view. Oh yeah do not miss tea and crumpets at 3 O'CLOCK.
