“Find somewhere else”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Toilet barely flushes, doors hardly shut, needs updating, housekeeping didn't even make our beds while we were out, no deadbolt in door just a lock on knob. A little high for the price and we had a side view for a room. On the positive, great location and air conditioner.

Staff is very friendly. Told us about the area. Rooms need updated, but were nice and clean. Cleaning staff acknowledged us every time they saw and and were always friendly. Not a bad place to stay for the price. Wish we had gotten a room with a balcony. Missed being able to sit out and look out at the ocean.

We stayed there and the staff was great. Very friendly and helpful with all our needs. Room was nice with plenty of towels and privacy. Will be staying there again when go back to the beach. Loved that the pool was at the back of motel and not on the street side. Plenty of parking in the back. Also easy access to the beach. Very quite place to stay.

The Sand Dunes was a bad choice we stayed there in May 2014.The office staff was friendly until they got our money. Upon arrival which was around 10:30 pm our TV wouldn't work when asking the office staff to help was told "Be there when I can" then she couldn't get it to work
she cursed at the fact and made the statement these TVs are out dated!The drink machine took our money there was no phone books in the rooms.The beds slept terrible, had to purchase a whole bag of ice to get any, never was told there was coffee in the office for guest, when checking out ask for the owners name and how to get up with him were told we couldn't have it and they didn't know when he would be there they never knew till they saw him and the maids were also unfriendly. Bad choice of hotels!!!!

My family and I stayed at the Sand Dunes Motel for Mother's Day weekend on May 9 -11, 2014. When I called to make my reservation I was told that the room we would be reserving had recently been remodeled. Upon our arrival, we turned the AC units on and noticed that one of the AC units from one of the rooms was not cooling. We decided to give it more time to see if it would cool, but by Saturday morning we went to the office to express our discomfort and dissatisfaction. We spoke with a staff member named Tamera and she informed us she would call someone to check out the AC unit and fix it. We asked if we can be moved to another room and we were told there were no other rooms available at the motel. Late Saturday afternoon, a gentleman stopped by our room to fix/check out the AC unit and he informed us the AC was not cooling and needed to be replaced. On Sunday, when I checked out I spoke with Debbie regarding our dissatisfaction and she informed us the Manager would be calling me on Monday when she arrives to the office. Today, it has been more then a week and I have yet to receive a call from the Manager. I hoped that they would come to an amicable resolution to this matter, but now instead I will make my complain to the Better Business Bureau.

I have been coming to Kure Beach since the early 90s and have always stayed at the Sand Dunes. The staff has always been extremely friendly and made me feel welcome. The rooms ( even the old sand Dunes) have always been clean when we arrived and each morning we would leave to do something and return to a very clean room. The housekeeping staff do a great job and when you have young kids that could be a feet. I love the place!
