I came in late last night and stayed at the Dunes Motel 40 feet from the Best Western. I didn't see the Best Western in light or else I would have not stayed here.

Family trip for spring break. Beautiful beach across the street, walking distance. The front office staff was excellent. Breakfast was very good! The cleanliness of the grounds and room were impressive!

Everyone was really friendly, the breakfast was really good, and I like that it's walking distance to the beach. There are many places within a short drive to visit. I've stayed here twice already and I would definitely stay here again.

Hotel staff was the best part about this place. Forgot a toothbrush and went to office at 11:30 at night and she gladly provided a toothbrush, toothpaste and mouthwash. It really could be a gold mine being that it's only 5 minutes from the beach but the rooms need a little TLC and warmth to them. The rooms are nice...

The service was great, location was great. The carpet in the room was stained and looked old and there was a musty smell coming from the bathroom. But it was fine for an over night trip with the family and at a great price

Our stay was great. The bed was a little to firm but that is just my personal preference. One lamp did not work but the other lighting was sufficient so I didn't report it. Staff was friendly and helpful especially since I traveled with 2disabled family members. The disability room worked out fine and we were quite comfy during our...

My husband and I went to Marina for his job, just about anything that could go wrong did, except the hotel. The staff was amazing, even when the power went out because of a storm.
