“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2013

We had very high hopes for our stay at this hotel. For the price, we were very disappointed. Parking was good and most staff were very nice and friendly. The room was large, but the bathroom was very small. The beds were not comfortable at all. When we arrived the Wi-Fi was not working, and when we called the front desk about it, she made no attempt to fix the problem. She simply said, “Oh another guest else said that earlier, it must be broken.” The best part of the hotel is the view. The location is not the great, since there is a lot of traffic on Baltimore Avenue.

Nice hotel that is set on the beach. Short walk across dunes to the water. Short walk to the boardwalk however at the end that does not have rides. Room clean and staff very nice. Everything in area is close.

My grandson and I stayed here for 4 days in June 2013. We were very happy with our room, which was clean and comfortable. Maid service was perfect and the restaurant and check in staff were very professional and pleasant. The location is close to the Jolly Roger fun and water park which we walked to twice. We ate breakfast in the hotel restaurant and the food was delicious and reasonably priced. It actually cost us more to eat breakfast at the Dough Roller. The only two minor things I would say were inconvenient were (1) our ice machine on our floor was broken and (2) the pool is situated on the west side of the hotel and is in the shade most of the day, which some may like but we would have preferred sun. I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel and plan on going back before the end of the summer.

Room Tip: Our room was on the 6th (room 611) floor which was about half way up (I think there were maybe 11 f...

I had such a relaxing stay at the Dunes Manor. On top of having big, clean rooms with comfy beds, the retaurant has amazing food (especially breakfast) and a great bar. My favorite thing to do was sit on their large deck in a nice big rocking chair and sip on my daiquiri! Great experience!

A very relaxing stay! The afternoon tea was refreshing! Centrally located so much so that once the car was parked we walked to attractions (boardwalk, mini golf, restaurants, mini mart, etc.). Breakfast in the Victorian room was just right! Only drawback is would not want to be on 2nd floor again! Too noisy w/ window open!

My wife and I have been coming to this hotel for a few years now, and we have come to really enjoy it.

First, the hotel recently modernized its rooms. They now have a fridge, microwave, coffee-maker, and granite countertops. The update is beautiful.

The lobby decor is what gives this hotel its retro feel. Its staff makes it feel like a family-run hotel.

It has a very good location, just off the north end of the boardwalk. A short walk gets you to the boardwalk, where you can rent bikes or take the tram. I would NOT recommend walking - there are not too many things to do at that end of the boardwalk, but the transportation options make it easy. There are plenty of shops and services within walking distance along the street near the hotel, so anything you might need is easily accessible.

We had one meal in the restaurant. It was very good. I wasn't too hungry, so I ordered a quesadilla. To my surprise, it came out on a large plate, the size of my face. I had leftovers, but was very happy out it.

We generally don't have our room cleaned, so I can't comment on the quality of the room service, but we were given anything we needed when we asked.

One thing to note - the wi-fi service is a little weak. The signal gets almost unusable the farther into the room you go. The construction of the hotel probably plays a role in this - it is steel and concrete, sure to restrict any signal. I often found myself on the bed closest to the door or standing near the door to get a better signal. But, it is complimentary, and it usually works. Better than eating your data.

Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend staying at this hotel. Rooms are clean, service is very good, and it is in a great location for accessing either Ocean City or points north.
