Cute little place right on the beach! Looks like they recently updated the room we were in #222. The beds in our room were different heights, one was probably a foot higher than the other. Great views from the 2nd floor. Fridge was spotless. Pool Cleaning company came every day. Housekeeping will not make your bed if you leave anything...

Motel was clean. Staff was nice and friendly. Close to all that Kure Beach has to offer. We had a great visit. Will stay there again. Love Kure Beach, small family style beach. Restaurants are near and you can walk to all.

Sand Dunes is a small "mom & pop" motel located in the very small (one traffic light, no chain restaurants or stores), quaint town of Kure Beach, NC. We stayed on the 3rd floor and had a very nice oceanfront view of the beach, pool & pier. We had a basic kitchen with small stove/oven, full size fridge & microwave....

Horrible Motel!!! My wife developed a reaction to the air condition and black mold, They refused to give us a refund when we left early to go to a different motel.

Comfy beds and pillows. Secure and clean. Super location. friendly people. Will go back again.As for the man that said housekeeping didn't make the beds, evidently he did not read the Sand Dunes book when he got there. It says "any personal items left on the bed's and housekeeping will not make up the bed". Well don't leave your personal...

Our room had been remodeled. The kitchen was nice. Wonderful view and great location. Good resturants and the Pier are a short walking distance. We loved it so much we stayed an extra night. Our sons loved the pool. Housekeeping did a great job. We will be staying here again.

Toilet barely flushes, doors hardly shut, needs updating, housekeeping didn't even make our beds while we were out, no deadbolt in door just a lock on knob. A little high for the price and we had a side view for a room. On the positive, great location and air conditioner.
