Sand Dunes Motel
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Kure Beach
Reviewed 30 March 2017

you can plan a week's vacation and do something most every day. There's a great aquarium 5 minutes away as well as a civil war bunker. You can take a short drive to check out a world war II battleship. You can spend a day at the Wilmington waterfront shopping. There's plenty of deep sea fishing charters at Carolina Beach. And the best part (at least my family thought so) was the nightly stroll to the pier to have a daily battle of foosball; parents vs kids.

the hotel is no frills, but fills its role perfectly. The kitchen is nothing fancy, but saves you tons of money because you're not eating out. We always made sure to get the oceanfront rooms, because you can't beat the morning sunrises. better yet, you get to fall asleep listening to the crashing of the waves.

Room Tip: don't get the rooms right next to the road. one year we did that and got to listen to the garbag...

I was extremely impressed with the Sand Dunes motel during my weekend stay in Kure Beach. I prices are extremely reasonable, especially with units that come with a full kitchen and a great ocean view. I would recommend the Sand Dunes to my grandparents and worst enemies.

Room Tip: Rooms on the third floor have fantastic oceans views.

Nice motel. Location is great rooms are comfortable. Close to pier ... Have stayed there three times now. I would recommend it to anyone. It has become a regular part of vacation. Just made reservations for this year. Nothing like Kure Beach.

Room Tip: No elevator so second floor is where I prefer. Oh the view!! :-)

Stayed here the week they opened for the season. Our room was on the third floor, which was a walkup, but it made for a quiet stay! Lovely view of the sunrise and the pier off our oceanfront balcony. The room had all the kitchenette amenities one would expect, and plenty of room. The room was very clean, and welcoming, with original art on the walls and a cute little rose made of toilet tissue for that added touch. No breakfast is offered, but coffee is available in the office. Motel is just steps away from the beach and restaurants. Owner was very friendly and pleasant. We felt the room was well worth the price compared to other motels in the area and would definitely stay again!!

This is a motel not a resort, so the accommodations are decent (not luxury). We had 2 adults and 4 children fit comfortably in our room. I loved the location - we walked out our back door and took 20 steps to the beach! The kids enjoyed the pool too. It was a short walk (block or 2) to restaurants. There was also a small kitchen which was nice.

Stayed: August 2016, travelled with friends
