the check in was a breeze but once you get to the room it was a disaster from the smell in the room curtains hanging off the hook and food left behind the microwave from the previous guest, dirty linen and dusty furniture. Pool looked cloudy and to much chlorine. parking was good always got a spot, they do provide...

Most of the stuff the other reviews said was true. It's old and not in great shape. The rooms are small. Beds seemed really old. The pool was fine, but it was heavily chlorinated (probably a good thing, actually) and the area around the pool was pretty small. We were only there for one night which is all I could...

We stayed a couple of midweek nights at the end of August because my 8 year old daughter loves Jenkinson's, the nearby Breakwater Water Park and Island Beach State Park. This is an admittedly older hotel and the rooms are a pretty tight fit. But our family of three was comfortable enough. The a/c worked great, the rooms were clean...

This place is pretty much a dump. Ugly and dirty. Very small rooms. Insufficient towels. When they brought more they left them on the toilet seat lid. Yuck. The best thing I can say about it is the lady at the front desk was nice. If you can afford to stay elsewhere, please do.

It is by far the worst I have stayed in the noise of the other guests was horrible not family oriented what so ever! The staff would allow us to leave our car in lot to use the beach the day we checked out! Never again the shower had hair in it from the last guest defiantly never going back...

This was my first visit of the areas and I wasn't expecting a lot. I wanted a place close to the beach, relatively clean, parking, safety and comfort. The Dunes did just OK. There are better choices that will give you free beach access, are closer to the Boardwalk which saves on parking and beach fees. Keep these extra costs...

Stayed here mon to wed with our kids. They loved the pool and there is a small outdoor terrace where we had breakfast every morning. Beds are comfortable! The rooms are not massive but it was clean and tidy and has everything you need for a few nights. Microwave and fridge freezer in all rooms.

I checked in and then checked out within the hour. For paying $355 for the night I expected a nicer place. I felt like I was on an episode of Jersey Shore. My family and I had a room right next to pool. About 20 men were partying and blaring music. I was so uncomfortable with my family that we...

I booked this motel fully aware of the negative reviews. But I had also seen that this place recently changed ownership. So I was hoping that this was a change for the better. Let me start my review by letting you know that I am not a primadona. I don't require high levels of luxury, especially for just a night...

My husband, myself, and 2 children stayed here and we were so happy! Clean rooms, big flat screen TV, microwave, & refrigerator- Coffee is in the main lobby. The pool area was very nice with new lounge chairs. The pool itself was very clean and the water was so warm. They provide discount passes to the beach ($4 off the...
