“Love the Sand Dune!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2010

This was our third time staying at the Sand Dune. I absolutely love this place. The rooms and grounds are very clean. The staff is very pleasant!!! They are priced much lower than many of the hotels in Wildwood Crest. We stayed in a 2 room efficiency, it was great having a kitchen. We saved lots of money by eating in most nights.

The only 2 minor complaints I have, the parking spots are very tight. We actually parked on the street (Atlantic Ave) for a majority of our vacation. The other minor issue I had was they only have 1 washer and 1 dryer to the whole hotel, and they are quite dated. I only had to do a couple loads of laundry to get us through the week, and had to wait quite a while for them to be free.

We already made our reservations for next year, and cant wait to go back! Great Job Sand Dune!!!!

I recently just stayed at the Sand Dune and had a great time. This is my third
year at the hotel and I would keep going back. The owners (Linda and Ray) are
very friendly and would do anything for you. They have coffee set up for the
adults in the a.m. and plenty of snacks and extras if you forgot to bring
something to purchase in the office. The rooms and pool are very well kept. I
seen the pool being cleaned every morning and evening. Other then a game room,
they have a lovely little golf course and ping pong table for the children.
They also have some BBQ grills and a picnic area to cook and eat with family. I
actually cannot wait til next year! I feel the Sand Dune is a very family friendly place and very peaceful at night. I would highly recommend this hotel for families, and I will continue my stays there each year.

We were pleasantly surprised with our stay at the Sand Dune Motel. We had a 2 room efficiency and it was just perfect for our family of 5. Although it was small, it had just amount of room to accommodate all of us.

The motel was located close enough to everything, yet we weren't in the way to be distracted while we slept.

The service was wonderful and we were treated very well.

Our only minor complaint was that there were a few hairs on the bathrooms walls that were not cleaned up,

But other than that, we will definitely be coming again.

We absolutely loved staying at the Sand Dune last summer. So much so we'll be staying again this summer and going with some family for a reunion there in the fall.

I can't say enough about this place. I have virtually stayed almost everywhere in the crest in my 40 some odd visits, but this place is a return too type of place.

I really must say I take a little offense to a previous comment about how the owner is a stalker. No he doesn;t let wild kids run around the unit by themselves, but that is one of the reasons I enjoy it there. If you want someone else to babysit your children, go somewhere else. We had several small children around when friends came to visit and never had a problem. We even had some teenagers too who were also welcomed with open arms.

This motel is charming and well taken care of. You can tell its loved.

What a great little place!
This motel was clean and adorable - only negative were parking spots are tight not a huge issue.
Beach is right across street and all rooms are oceanview.
Owners keep pool clean everyday of sand and dirt as well
as the rooms. We had a "suite" which was two rooms separated by door and spacious for our family of 5.
Last minute Labor Day deal we only paid $120 nite and stayed
an extra nite - for only $85. Nice oceanview sundeck.
This motel is not oceanfront but close enough! Near bike rentals
and people we met were so nice. I'm from NJ & for our first wildwood crest trip this motel was perfect! Rates are great
and very safe, quiet area....

We stayed for a week... The pool was great and so was the little golf course they had. The BBQ grills are a fantastic plus to have. They had 3 so you really didnt have to wait.
The people who stayed there were family oriented and very friendly. It was nice to make new friends and be able to sit outside your room and just habg out and talk.

The rooms are small.. Old looking.... The air conditoner is only in the back room with the 2 double beds and the front room had a pull out sofa that the kids liked but they had a ceiling fan only.

The owners were ok... The really do not appreciate the kids running around and having fun by playing tag or hide and seek, Nor do they like when the kids play ball (like with a beach ball) The owners husband does walk around alot and watches everything almost like stalking

It is close to the beach just out the door and you cross the street

Not sure if we woudl stay there again, the maids do not clean immaculately (well ours didnt) and when we asked for xtra towels we were told no,, That seemed weird.
