We needed a place to stay near where friends were playing. It was the holiday weekend and most places wanted a 3 night guarantee, which we could not do because of my husband’s work schedule. So based on the reviews I read on Trip Advisor about the Dunes I figured, one night would be okay. The outside was 1968 at...

This is a rustic motel, but very clean and friendly staff. It is a close walk to the ocean. It does not have any elevators, only stairs. The pool is not heated, but if it were warmer when we went that wouldn't have been a problem. There was breakfast with bagels and english muffins, and cornflakes. If you expect more...

It was a good stay! The room was clean and bed was comfortable. The location was fantastic, pretty much near to the beaches. The hotel staffs were nice. Just the breakfast they offered was not good, minimal options, other than that it was a good motel.

My 80-years old parents drove 3.5 hours to this hotel, to find out they have no room. Hotel had their reservation, but the manager told them booking.com overbooked the rooms. Booking.com denies it, and says Dunes Motor Inn has single account manager, and solely responsible for overbooking. If overbooking happens, you’d expect somebody who arrives late at night not to...

Close walk to the beach and pool was fun for the family. Breakfast was minimal (no yogurt or fruit) and room smelled moldy - we could see mold in the AC unit so we turned it off. Walls were thin and we were awakened by neighbors both nights. Duvet cover buttons were at the head of the bed. WiFi was...

The Dunes Motor Inn is a small motel right next to the beach in South Yarmouth. You can walk over to a public beach in just a few minutes. The motel has a nice outdoor pool with a 9 foot deep end.

The motel was located close to the beach which was very nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful. However, the rooms were very run-down, with a moldy smell. The AC was very loud. The pool was only open until 7 pm. Okay accommodation for the cheap price.
