Cute Near Beach Motel with Character
The staff was incredibly friendly, even when I knocked on the office door at 2am to purchase late night snacks :-) Easy walking distance to the beach and right on the free trolley route, so convenient to get to the boardwalk as well. The pool was very enjoyable, looks like they got new furniture from my last stay 2 years ago and everything was comfortable. No hesitation in recommending Dunes by the Ocean to Pt Pleasant visitors.

Cute little hotel
The staff was super nice, you can tell they try thier best for you. it's a cute little hotel. Everything was clean. The beds were a little uncomfortable. But we made it through. Pool is right there. I had my doubts at first but was happy with the whole stay. Thanks dunes!

Nice last minute stay
We decided to come down to the beach due to the extreme heat. I looked on line and there were 3 rooms left both on Expedia and All were overpriced, but what the heck. The motel had a nice pool, the rooms were cool and clean so it suited our purpose. And we were able to spend the following day by the pool until the afternoon, so basically we got two days. My friend forgot her charger, the desk lent her one and the people at the desk were friendly and polite.

First room had musty smell only to find mold in airconditioner filter and severe mold on shower head. Got moved to a second room which was better but tv didn’t work.

Perfect beach hotel for a weekend getaway.
Perfect place to stay for a beach getaway. We were pleasantly surprised by how clean and cute the room was. Great location. Loved the close beach access. Close enough to the boardwalk to enjoy it without staying directly on it. The owners/staff were extremely nice and you can tell they really care about your stay. Great value. We will definitely return.
