Maybe my problem is that I was comparing it to a motel I stayed at right before (which received lower reviews but was FAR superior), but was quite disappointed with The Dunes motel.
Visit started off badly from the start - filthy bathtub with a "teenage" roach lounging in it (see portrait). First things first - immediate trip to drugstore to purchase flip-flops to shower in. Had Lysol with me and used it EVERYWHERE.
Rooms are very dated but good size and well-appointed. Great balcony with FABULOUS view (aside from some off-season boardwalk construction, which is not the motel's fault). Surf so close, you feel like you can touch it.
Great kitchennette with all one may need.
Sheets and towels were clean.
Not happy with maid service. Yes, they vacuumed. But returned to hair all over sink, tub and toilet. Sure, it's MY hair. I'm shedding. But I expect the maid to clean it before she takes the generous tip I left her. Kinda the point of a maid. To clean your bathroom.
It beats being at work. But will stay elsewhere next time.
