I like that it was across from the beach it was quiet down from boardwalk. Everyone was so very nice that worked there and many of the quest had families. There is a refigator and micowave in room which helped. This place is great for a few days of just getting away, I will go back.

Nice Hotel close to Beach/Reasonable Pricing

The hotel provided us with exactly what we needed. The staff were super friendly. The front office receptionist was very helpful. The room was very clean. If you are price conscious and want to be near the beach for short stay, this is a reasonable place for its price. The location is away from chaos and crowd but most importantly it’s near the beach.

If you want a hotel nestled in a beautiful community away from noise and summer traffic, this is the place. We walked to boardwalk, however there is a public beach that is quiet and walking distance from hotel. Kal and Sheila were absolutely the kindest and eager to make sure our weekend stay was comfortable. The room was large and extremely clean. Air conditioner cool and comfortable. The pool was so pristine and blue. We used the pool and the beach. We want to book another fabulous weekend at The Dunes!

Gets the job done!

Pros: Cute, clean, simple but meets basic necessities. Pool, WiFi, A/C, fridge, microwave. Excellent for a short stay.
Cons: More outlets especially in the bathroom where there are none. I had to dry my hair in the room but at least there is a mirror out there.
Location: Great location. Beach across the street, Jenkinson's Boardwalk within walking distance, shops and supermarket 1.5 miles away in town center.
We booked this hotel in the wee hours of June 29 for a stay that same night and check out the next day - a nearly impossible feat the weekend before July 4th at the Jersey Shore! Needless to say we were happy to get a room and were just hoping it would not be gross since we had our daughters with us who are only 3.5 and 10 months. I'm happy to say we were pleasantly surprised! The hotel is cute and small - only 15 rooms I think. The price was reasonable even at the last minute. Please be prepared that it is bare bones, nothing fancy but our room was clean with updated curtains and linens. Our room had two double beds, a small fridge and microwave, stand-up shower, TV and air conditioner. The pool area is AWESOME - neat and clean. They have one big ice machine out near the pool area where folks were filling their coolers before heading to the beach which is right across the street. You're about 1 mile from Jenkinson's Boardwalk and we just put the kids in the stroller and walked as we didn't want to lose our parking spot (free parking included but there aren't too many spots so I imagine they fill up quickly at night). The woman at the front desk was pleasant and helpful (sorry for not remembering her name). We will definitely stay again!

Cute place, clean rooms, friendly staff. It’s close to the beach and a short drive to the boardwalk. It rained while we stayed so we didn’t get to take advantage of the pool but I would book again.
