Location:
The Dunes motel is located along the main hotel/motel/ fast food street in Bend. It was very easy to find the motel. It takes about 15 minutes to walk to the very nice city center and the river.

Service:
The staff was very friendly and service minded. We were well received and got a very good feeling because of the service and attention paid by the staff.

The parking is complementary and there was plenty of parking spaces. The rate also included free wifi and a complementary breakfast. The reception area offered tourist brochures about the area.

Rooms:
The room was clean and spacious.

Surrounding areas:
As mentioned under location the Dunes motel is only a short walk from the city center. It was easy to reach grocery stores, petrol stations and a large selection of fast food restaurants by car. There were also food options in the close vicinity of the Dunes Motel.

We enjoyed our stay at the Dunes motel and we can truely recommend this motel because of the good service and convenient location.

We paid for a room then found the room not acceptable. We were shown two more and they were so-so. We wanted to leave but the manager pointed to a hand-painted sign that said "No Refunds!"

Obviously, they've had the same problem before: people don't want to stay here after seeing what it's like!

We stayed since we had already paid for it but will NOT return!

I'm not picky, so long as it's not in a dangerous part of town. I'm willing to save a five bucks over a the low budget national chain. Compared to other budget motels I've stayed at in this range, this was good. The surprise was room had a microwave and cooler. There was a coffee pot with sealed coffee pouches on the counter. The bed was very comfortable for me, and I am used to sleeping on an air mattress. The pillows were thin but in new condition. The rug was dark colored, hard to tell how clean. One light bulb missing, possibly was taken. WiFi signal in the motel as well as from two nearby motels.

$75 for 2 seniors. Dirty carpet, mold around bathtub, bathroom door would not close as it had been yanked off the hinges at some point, heat wouldn't come on until owner brought tools over and "fixed it". We flipped the deadbolt for security since we were right on the street, and the owner had to come and let us out of the door the next morning. Thank goodness there was no fire or emergency, as we were locked in tight. I'd rate this place - gross!
