The people at this little motel were so nice! The rooms were clean, bright and airy! The pool was crystal clear and set up nicely with lounge chairs, table and umbrellas. The staff did everything they could to make you stay a pleasant one. This motel is directly across the street from the Jenness State Beach. Customers of this motel...

We just stayed for 3 nights (2 adults, a 6 & 3 year old). This motel was great for our mini family vacation! It is directly across from the beach, has a great pool, and the staff and other guests were very friendly. The seacoast is lined with motel style lodging, and the Dunes Motor Inn was clean, comfortable, the...

Okay, I want to be as objective and impartial as possible about this old beach side motel.. We stayed at this hotel because we wanted to be on the beach. Cost was $175 per night. This hotel was built in 1960 and hasn't seen much updating since. Room was clean, but the housekeepers are shoveling against the tide here, since...

I consider The Dunes my ultimate get away and hiding place. I love the old school vibe of the people and the structure. It is always clean, friendly and warm. I have been going for 21 years and I have also been to many other places throughout N.E. and worldwide but The Dunes has a unique charm and attracts the...

This summer, we had a chance to experience this fine motel with extremely good dining. It happens to be across the street from a wonderful beach and next door to a fantastic Surf Shop (Summer Sessions)! It was fun for the whole family! Surf lessons for all or walks along the beach.

I stayed at the Dunes Motor Inn from 9/9-9/11/2013, and it more than met my expectations! The room was lovely and clean and the bed was comfortable. The ocean view from the room and the balcony outside was priceless and the close proximity to the beach was such a plus. The pool was sparklingly clean.The staff was professional, warm, welcoming,...

We have been travelling to New Hampshire for the past 3 years and each time have stayed here at the Dunes for a long weekend. The hotel is located far enough away from the center of Hampton Beach where it is not as crowded. It is an average hotel not necessarily updated with the best accommodations but if you are...

If you are looking for the Taj Mahal, this isn't it, you can go to other seacoast towns for that. This is an incredibly clean, fun, family oriented place. It is a 60's throwback in time to the days of Motor Inn's. You can see that as soon as you pull up; so reviews that put the place down, must...
