Rooms were immaculate( trust me i'm picky) hotel parking was tight if you must use car do it early am and you will get same spot back we had no problem with noise even though Playland Castaway cove is facing hotel (huge plus with small children) besides they close at 9, kids 6 and 4 slept in bedroom wifi was weak and sofa beds were a bit uncomfortable but still ok .Overall hotel is close to everything nearest market is 2 blocks away staff is professional the whole town is clean and safe enough to walk around with kids bike rentals right at corner (you must try the surrey bikes so much fun).Our first time in Oceon city and we will def be back to Wild Dunes thanks for the memories !!

I like this hotel, pure and simple. It is clean and in a nice location. Prices are reasonable especially if you pay attn to their special offers where you get free breakfast vouchers at their restaurant, the Bloomin Tulip. We have stayed here many times. There is a sofa bed in the front room and a king size bed in the bedroom. It's just right for our family of four. No complaints.

Room Tip: All the rooms are the same. There is no choice with a different view because they all face the sam...

Don't get me wrong, we've been to this place for 3 straight years. My 4 year old twin daughters LOVE staying here for the location, convenience and overall enjoyment each time we are here.

Why only 4 stars you ask? Each year their WiFi gets weaker and weaker. However, they advertise Free WiFi everywhere. Although it's free, it doesn't work.

I've spoken to the workers there several times and they apparently know that it's terrible, a weak signal at best for a short period of time and then disconnects.

However, obviously management isn't doing anything about it.

We just got back from our annual trip to OC and we have stayed at Wild Dunes for the past three years. Always happy with this place...extremely clean and well maintained. We did a package which included breakfast at the Blooming Tulip (not anything to write home about but certainly fine for breakfast and great that it was included in our package). The location is right near Playland Cove...so my 5 year old loved being close to the rides...it is right at the ramp to the 10th & the Boardwalk. Amanzingly, even though it was close to the amusement rides, you couldn't hear a thing in the bedrooms which are on the exterior of the suites. There are decent pools which can be used at Impala...right next door/across the street. And beach tags are included, which is great. Housekeeping staff very pleasant and extremely efficient...they just seemed to know when we were gone and managed to magically prepare everything each day without bumping into us.
Really would recommend this place...but the WiFi was absolutely terrible this year. When we could actually get connected, it was horribly slow. Very frustrating to not be connected...to even possibly get a slow signal, had to sit on balcony.

Room Tip: We have always been on the second floor. I liked the rooms that were closer to the boardwalk. This...

I stayed at the Wild Dunes Inn with my husband and 2 young children for two night. The room was clean, but dated. Parking is extremely limited. We were afraid to move our car out of fear that we wouldn't be able to find a space when we came back. Fortunately, we didn't need to move our car. The location is great - easy walking distance to the beach and all that the boardwalk has to offer. The Wild Dunes is across from Castaway Cove. For older kids and adults, this wouldn't be an issue, but my kids had a hard time falling asleep. Also, I could actually hear the conversations of the guests staying above us. As in, hear like they were in the room with me. This didn't disturb my husband, but I'm a light sleeper. Would I stay here again? Probably not, even though the price was very reasonable. Would I recommend it to other! Yes, with caveats about the parks and potential for noise.

Great location just steps from the boardwalk. Small kitchenette makes it easy to make breakfast or lunch, keep snacks and drinks on hand. The staff could not have been more accommodating - we were in for a charity walk and they allowed family members not stay in the motel to park in their auxillary lot. Rooms are not huge but very comfortable & well equipped, and furniture is in great condition.

Room Tip: Choose top (third) floor to see ocean from walkway

Excellent value since it sleeps 4, parking, pools and steps to the beach. I love bringing my kids here, so close to the beach and board, I can let them go on their own. Rooms are very clean and I am extremely picky. I've been many places in OC and this is by far our favorite

Room Tip: Third floor has a better view
