the manager is very rude and unproffesional, the first day we arrived we had a few girls by the pool with the radio and he screamed at us as if it was 3 in the morning. The place was dirty and how dare they call it a luxury apartment. All it should be called is an efficiency. The water smelled...

OMG! Where do I start? This motel is HORRIBLE. It is a disgrace and it needs to be shut down. WE only stayed here because everything else was either booked or overly-expensive. Not to mention The Dunes was a total rip off. They really have nerve to charge what they do. The room smelled badly of cat urine and the...

We were looking for a place to stay at Point Pleasant Beach and were not sure as we were on a budget. After looking at the pictures on their web site and the rates, it looked a fairly good place to spend a few nights. The review was average but since we wanted to stay at a reasonable cost, this...

Went with our family to the Dunes Hotel. The Hotel is very clean and well kept. We had a great vacation. The highlight of our stay was the lovely evenings we spent in the private patio by the pool side. Very hospitable and friendly staff - overall a great vacation.

Absolute Dump; totally opposite of what is claimed on their website! Not sure how this place is still in business or when last inspections were ever done on this dump. Rooms smelled like cat urine, smoke and are musty and damp. My credit was used to reserve the room through their website with my intentions of paying cash when I...

There is a reason they don't feature a picture of the outside of the hotel on their website! I don't think a dime has been put in to this place since 1960! We booked the two-bedroom "luxury" apartment only to be told that is was unavailable due to storm damage. Of course they failed to tell me this the night...

This was the most absolutely appalling experience I have EVER had with a hotel. Seriously. I thought I was on candid camera, it was so bad. We couldn't even stay there. My children were scared! It was dirty and not well kept, to say the least. I WISH I had taken pictures. An excerpt of the email I sent to...

We stayed for two nights at this motel. It is nothing like it looks like on the website. The rooms are very dated and they didn't do such a great job cleaning. There was a lot of dust in the corner, mold in the shower and dirty fingerprints all over the doors. The soap was so small, it was barely...

We rented the room for a few friends after a prom. The room was small, but that was to be expected, and it was clean enough (Although there was no soap at all in the shower, and the towels remained exactly the same for two days). The problem was in the billing, which was near $150 over what we had...

This motel was filled with kids drinking, partying and noisy all night long! The room had thin walls and curtains that didn't close well, old dingy bathrooms, poor television reception and disgusting pool and patios. Parking was unavailable because of all the kids friends overfilling the spots and the rooms. We were forced to park in the metered street parking...
