The number one thing about this motel is that it is a across from the beach. My family loved that so we could walk across the road and there was the beach. But there were some downsides, in my room the bathroom door didn't work, all you had to do was just push on the door and it would open...

If you want to fall asleep listening to the waves on the beach...this is the place! Clean, comfortable, old time motel that is right across the street from a State beach. I recommend getting a room on the second floor so you can sit outside your room and watch the surfers and paddle boarders. They also have a second floor...

The weather very cold for a motorcycle ride. However, the Dunes was warm and inviting! A hidden gem of a state beach. Beautiful, wide, and with nice facilities. There is reasonably priced, if limited, parking but behind the motel is plenty.

We had a nice stay here last June. Our room had recently been re-done, it was fresh and new. The staff was helpful, friendly, and the location is perfect, right across the street from the beach! The breakfast included with the room rate was so-so. This is a fun spot for an over-nighter or weekend get away.

This motor inn is a perfect location if you want to hang out at the beach. There is also a nice swimming pool. The rooms are average and nothing special about them. If you sit on the balcony outside your room on the second floor, you cannot see the ocean across the street because you are below or just about...

This is my friend's favorite beach motel, so we she asked me to do a weekend trip with her I said sure. It is a nice family owned motel directly across the street from a beach. If you like perfect hotel rooms with nice comfortable beds, clean bedding and clean carpeting, then this is not your kind of place. The...

We have stayed here many times and really like the proximity to the beach. It is literally right across the street, so you can grab your gear and walk to the beach. The actual accomodations are not much to write home about. This is a beach motel, nothing fancy. Some of the outlets in rooms are not grounded, so you...
