“Quick stop over and thats it”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Arrived late at the Dunes Inn- the front desk women was very nice and got us in fast. Now the reason I gave this 2 out of 5 is because this place could have real potential. We got this room for a great deal ($50) and this was just a place to sleep and get back on the road early next day. The beds were really comfortable, and has a good size flat screen TV- however the outside looks like it use to be a Days Inn- and the up keep isn't the best (bird poop all over the stairwells- as its type of place that has entrances to rooms from outside). However the women did warn us about the birds, she said they did have someone out but they keep coming back. The room was ok cleaned... nothing special- A/C was nice and cold. We were just happy beds were comfy. Tiny bathroom with sink in main room. I have figured out when your in the U.S and you get a cheap room and its called an "inn" that is code for Motel. Owners just need to put in a little $ for paint and lil TLC for the exterior and this place could be great. Easy to find right off the interstate (mind you finding the entrance in the dark was a challenge) and the Bob Evans is not connected to this place, its in front of it- but lots of options for food around.

Room Tip: cheap place to stay if passing through

This it's a good value motel room. It shows some wear but the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The woman at the front desk was friendly and helpful about places to eat. Older TV and limited cable with Showtime. No bedspread but clean comforter in cover which more motels should do. I'd stay here again.

I had to use towels to use to wash with. I had go the office and the employee said they were out. The owner refuses to buy any wash cloths. The employee had to go to another room to take them out of that room, so that way I could have some. They rented out the room next to me they were quiet, but they were smoking pot and cigarettes that the room looked like a chimney stack. The smoke was so heavy that I got stoned from smelling it. Pot heaven for the people who smokes it and the ones that don't even smoke. The sink wouldn't even drain the sink over flowed just from washing your face. The owner JACKED up my price by $10. The employee offered to move me, but I already comfortable and didn't feel moving all my books. I wouldn't been able move far enough away.

Room Tip: I wouldn't recommend none. Unless you smoke pot heaven

It had been a very long day driving through freezing rain and snow and it was late. We just wanted a clean place to sleep preferably one that wasn't too pricey. our Hotel Coupon app had a coupon for Dunes Inn for $39.99. Couldn't ask for much better than that. A few if the reviews were questionable but we gave it a shot. The girls at checkin and checkout were friendly and went out of their way to help and just chat. Our room was quite clean and well furnished. Linens were clean and beds sporting the new look with white (blanket between 2 sheets and NO spread that NEVER looks clean) , had a micro and frig and a coffee pot. We could tell that a lot of upgrades and remodeling had been done....a few more were still needed in the bathroom. Tub and toilet were "aged" and it was time for new stuff
All on all, was pretty good for what we paid. We would stop again.

Grabbed it for under $60 on Expedia. Was a desperation stop in a storm. Hotel room smells musty, is marginally clean and has they motel feel to it. Look, if you need a bed to crash and find it cheap enough, it's passable. That's about it! On the plus side wifi was fine and there is a fridge and microwave.

I tend to prefer name brand hotels when on the road, but we decided to give this one a try and we were very pleased with it. Overall, we found that it was cleaner, and with better amenities, than a budget brand name hotel that might cost 20% - 30% more (Microtel, Red Roof etc). Internet was quick, environment was quiet, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. If you're driving through the area, and need a place to stay for the night, you can feel very confident staying here.

I was unsure about this hotel because of all of the past reviews but let me tell you, it is a great place. The room was clean and updated. The staff was friendly. The ice machine was broken but the attendant said that it was in the process of being fixed as well as adding snacks to purchase at the front desk. The gas station is across the street and there is a fridge in the room. There was no odor to the room whatsoever. I will be back here.
