“Wonderful experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

I stayed at the Dunes Manor Hotel for the first time in April 2014, while attending an onsite rug hooking school. I would definitely return and stay there again!

My room was lovely, all done in sage green and white, with a small balcony directly overlooking the beach, and a very comfortable bed and pillows. There was a large closet with a safe for valuables, and a small refrigerator and microwave so that I could prepare tea for myself in the evenings. The meals in the dining room were delicious, and the wait staff couldn't have been more efficient and pleasant to all of us. Having coffee available in the lobby from 6 AM on was a boon to us early risers.

The staff was so friendly and helpful, from the staff in the dining room to a touch-up painter that I encountered in the hallway on my last morning there, who came to chat with me while I waited for the elevator. His final words to me were, "Have a great day, hon!" which I appreciated very much, being a Baltimore girl at heart. Pam Johnson, who not only works at the hotel but was also the director of the rug school, was fantastic -- she was on top of everything, every minute, and made us all feel so welcome.

I plan to visit again in the near future.

I was at the Dunes for a rug hooking workshop for 5 nights. Very pleasant rooms, very pleasant employees. Food was mostly good, not every meal was great, but overall I have to say for about 100 women they did a fine job! The best crab cake! All big lumps, no filler! The dining room staff went over the top to serve with a smile! Clean halls and rooms. All rooms face the ocean. I highly recommend. Only downside is registration, they still had a huge national cheerleading population staying while we were there for one night, and trying to check in over 100 new arrivals, trying to get carts for luggage and overloaded elevators was NOT pleasant. They need to revamp their check in somehow. We had 11 people as a group, we had asked last Sept. 2013, to at least have rooms on the same floor, and we were so scattered on about 5 different floors! We weren't at all happy about that, I would think a year in advance that should not happen.

Dear flowergirl70,

Thank you for staying with us and for sharing your review. I was disappointed to read that you were not entirely happy with all of your meals, but I am confident we will improve before the next workshop. I was happy to read that you believe we have the best crab cakes and I can say I concur.

We hope to see you again soon at the Dunes Manor Hotel.

I accompanied my wife to her rug-hooking camp and thoroughly enjoyed my experience at the hotel. Not only was the facility beautifully furnished, rooms were well-appointed with many conveniences, such as complimentary in room internet. All rooms also include balconies, with gorgeous ocean views. From ours I was able to observe a pod of dolphins apparently feeding.
Service was great, with understated attention to every detail. We are looking forward to a return visit.

Room Tip: upper floors present more panoramic views

I booked 3 rooms for my daughter's 21st birthday. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and had more then enough amenities. The ocean view was breath taking. The motel was in walking distance of restaurants and the bus stop was right out front. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to stay!

All rooms are ocean front and newly redecorated. The updates are nice. We have stayed here a few times on the off season. It's just a block above the end of the boardwalk.
I most recently took my sister there for her birthday. It was so relaxing to enjoy the ocean views.
The food at the restaurant was very good and the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcomed.
Aside from some noisy cheerleaders, (a competition in the area), our stay was just about perfect!

I was disappointed that they raise the rates so much for the weekends and wouldn't accept my AAA discount.

Dear Wendy R,

Thank you for your review and for staying with us at the Dunes Manor. The whole city was busy with the cheerleaders that were here for the annual competition and we certainly had a number of them at the hotel. We are happy to welcome them back each year, but I fully understand that they can make more noise than our guests are accustomed to. Our Reservations Department can always let you know when those dates are.

I was disappointed to read that your stay was not perfect, but I am confident your next stay will be.

Kindest regards,
Kyle Johnson
