“Wifi???”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

This is our 4th year staying at the Dunes Motel. Overall it was a very good experience. The rooms are clean and the view spectacular. We were able to comfortably stay with two adults and two teenage boys. The lack of WiFi that we read about is a problem that still exists. We had a corner oceanfront room with no available WiFi. The first night the front desk gentleman told me that there must be something wrong with our phones. The next night when I called they told me they were replacing the routers and it would be available by Friday. Friday came and went and still no WiFi. Saturday was check out and still no WiFi. This seems to be a somewhat of long standing problem as we read about in other reviews. Hopefully it will be fixed as we would like to return again in September.

Love the Dunes Motel and Dunes Manor Hotel, however the increased pricing on both have definitely keeps us from not visiting as often as we normally have. Very disappointing as we love the Dunes Motel & Hotel and look forward to those weekends to just get away from home for a couple of days.

Also, the internet at the Motel has not worked for me in the last 3 visits there. This was from June and July.

So going to miss our friends on staff we have made there. Especially Charlie, Terry & Pam.

Dear ajfbrat,

Thank you again for staying with us and for being a repeat customer. I was sorry to see you had trouble with are wifi service during your stay. I just wanted to let you know we are in the process of repairing the wifi so this should not be a problem in the future. This is one of the many improvements we are currently working on for the Dunes Motel. You may have seen are new bath amenities as well. We now are placing Ecobotanics bath products in all of our guest rooms. You will also find complimentary in room coffee in the Ocean Front building, and as always we have complimentary coffee available in the office. These are just some of the ways we are trying to add value for our guest during the stay. We hope to see you again in the near future at the Dunes Motel.

Best Regards,
Michael J. Hayes, Director of Rooms

Last year we stayed at another hotel, I must say I'm glad we came back to the Dunes! Wow the cleanliness of our room HIGH FIVE guys. So glad to be at a hotel where my socks do not turn black!!! We booked early enough to avoid the HUGE price increase. My parents stayed Oceanfront and we stayed on the poolside. We loved the end pool room we had, we could walk out right up to the tram station, right onto the beach. It was great!! The view from the balcony of Oceanfront is of course such a spectacular view of the dunes & Atlantic. The only thing I wish is that the wifi would be a little faster, it was a bit slow at times.

Dear StrwbryShrtK,

I just want to say thank you for staying with us and continuing to stay with us at the Dunes. I always love seeing responses from repeat guests. It is the customers that continue to come back year after year that really make the Dunes a great place. I will also pass on your comments to our housekeeping staff. Which is by far the best housekeeping staff in Ocean City. Thank you again we hope to see you again in the near future.

We stayed in a corner efficiency on 4th of July weekend. This was the best bargain for an oceanside/boardwalk motel. The motel is clean, but a little rough around the edges. We only stayed in the motel to sleep, shower and eat so it was exactly what we needed. If you are on a budget but still want to feel comfortable this place is a good choice.

Room Tip: Do oceanfront! Love the sound of the ocean and boardwalk's live bands!

I stayed last year ocean front .due to huge price increase this year at your motel we decided to take a room poolside. A little disappointed we loved our oceanfront room.dont understand why the huge price jump.also I agree with another review.i had no internet however I did sit on deck of dunes manor HOTEL And had service. I can't complain.staff was exceptional and helpful as always.room was satisfactory however after pricing other places may chose another option next time.i chose this hotel because of value last year..not such a great value anymore.may stay closer to other end of boardwalk next time to be closer to activities for a comparable price.maybe you can give return visitors/loyal customers a discount or incentive to keep returning?

This was our first stay at this motel we stayed from june 22nd thru the 25th, we was just one block from the board walk a stunning view from the front Balcony we was on the 27th street side of the beach. It was not too busy at night and walking distance from most nice eatery's they has a movie on the beach on our 2nd night there along the boardwalk the food prices were very fair and good quality, very nice employees.the only issue that i had was the was with the rental prices of the Umbrellas for the beach but we will go back next summer for sure. a fantastic place to stay and very affordable.
