“Wonderful oceanfront hotel with a great staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2009

We stayed at the Dunes Manor for four nights during the last week in August. The room rate was very reasonable considering the hotel has all oceanfront rooms just a block from the boardwalk. We found the room to be a bit dated (microwave, vanity area, and bathroom), but everything was extremely clean. My only complaint was that the bed was not very comfortable. The view from the private balcony was amazing and the hotel restaurant was very good. We enjoyed being able to relax in rocking chairs on the porch to admire the ocean and to also have direct beach access with umbrella and chair rentals. The lounging area around the pool was a bit small so it became crowded, but overall it was well maintained and really nice. The afternoon Tea Time was great - free cookies, hot tea or iced tea....and it seemed like guests also enjoyed the piano entertainment in the evenings. I'd highly recommend this hotel.

-good value
i've stayed at other hotels in ocean city and this hotel is better than all of them, there's nothing really to complain about. and the best part about staying here is the fractured prune doughnuts located right outside the hotel...best doughnuts in the world!

  • Liked — EVERYTHING
  • Disliked — the pool was a little small, but it doesn't really matter when the beach is 10ft away.

Just came back after a couple of nights at the Dunes Manor. Last time I stayed there was 13 years ago and was not sure if it would still be as nice. It was and is! Clean, well kept, all staff courteous and helpful. One block from the boardwalk - ride the tram back and forth. Quiet, beautiful ocean front rooms - ALL of them. Reasonable meal costs. Can eat dinner oceanfront for $14. per meal. From 4 to 7pm, in the bar area and oceanfront dining, $5 for basket of chicken wings or shrimp. Free coffee in the morning, afternoon tea is delightful. Rockers ocean front to sit and relax. Pool is half indoor and half outdoor which is nice. Place to rinse off before coming back in from the beach. Beds were comfortable. Price was much more reasonable than Marriott, Hilton etc.

If you just want a relaxing vacation, you do not need to even leave the grounds. Good food, pleasant company, most everything is ocean front. Enjoy. Went with friends and NOT my children for the first time since I have had children and had fun and relaxed.

We had standard room that had mini frig, and microwave. Open the windows and left the ocean breeze in and hear the waves. We left a note for the maid for more towels and cups and received them each day. Please remember to tip the maid - they work hard.

Go out early and rent a surrey - lots of fun. Eat at SEACRETS one night on the bay - really neat place. Can sit in the water and enjoy drinks, two different bands, can eat bayfront on the sand and watch the sun set.

Minor things I would like to see change....time to update the bedspreads to easily washable comforters.

My 89 year old mother and I had a wonderful relaxing stay in a comfortable room with a balcony overlooking the ocean. The room had everything that we needed. Refrigerator, microwave, TV. Air Conditioning, comfortable beds and a great view of the Ocean. The hotel's restaurant had great foot and reasonable prices. Our room rate included breakfast every morning for $10 or less. Omletts, eggs, pancakes, french toast, fruit etc.
There was afternoon tea with iced and hot tea, crumpets and cookies. In the evening, there was wonderful piano entertainment in the lobby. There was an indoor/outdoor pool which had some shade and some sun and comfortable chairs and lounges with a bar for refreshing drinks. The hotel was only 1 block from the boardwalk so we took the train into the center of Ocean City. This was our first stay at the Dunes Manor and we will definitely stay there again.

The service from the moment you arrive till you leave is excellent. Every room has an ocean view and the heated pool is an indoor and outdoor combination. There is a piano player and sing along every night except Mondays and Tuesdays. There is lemon water for guests all day long in the lobby. High tea is at 3 p.m. every day, and they serve iced and hot tea, cookies, and crumpets. A really nice touch. It has a great porch to view the ocean and to congregate with family and friends.

It is convienient to the Boardwalk, bike rentals, and the boardwalk tram.

Restaurants have good food and drinks. It would be better if it offered enhancements like warm bread/biscuts with meals, better coffee, and more variety. The rooms are comfortable, but the pillows could be more plush. Complementary newspapers are not offered even during season when prices are high.

Very good location, just north of the Boardwalk. Nice hotel, clean but dated and could use a face lift to the rooms. Still one of the better hotels in the area. Cigarette smoking from others balconies billowed onto ours (non-smoking) most of the time (3rd floor). I am super-sensitive to cigarette smoke though. Despite the smoke, great view! Friendly staff, nice restaurant. Pool was nice but it was on the backside of the hotel. It would have been much nicer if it was ocean side. The kids wanted to use the pool and for me to sit and watch with no view was not fun. Overall, I would still give The Dunes Manor 4 out of 5 stars. We really enjoyed our stay despite the cons mentioned. There are very few nice hotels in Ocean City.

We have been there for just one night. But it was wonderful to renew yourself. There was always a cheerful and kind bellboy at the door of the hotel. The room was very clean, and also there were everything necessary to live such as a refrigerator, a coffee maker and a TV. All the rooms have ocean view, which is the best of all. It was wonderful to look at the endless ocean from your balcony. The exit to the seaside is thought wonderful. There is a place that you can have a shower or wash your feet to avoid the sand. Then there is corridor that takes you to the elevators after you entered the hotel. It was also nice that it is located at the lower ground, so you do not meet any one from the reception or any one not dealed with the sea. Everything was wonderful. Thanks to the Dunes Manor Hotel...
