We've often wondered whether a Likert (five-point) scale is the best way to evaluate accommodation. The Dunes Motel is a case-in-point. Our room was better than a three, but not good enough for a four. Close to light rail services, we chose the Dune to avoid city driving and city parking in Portland. We left our hire car parked in...

This is not a fancy motel with bells, whistles, and breakfast. However, the rooms are comfortable, there is tv and wifi, and the bathrooms are fine. For those traveling on a budget it is really quite satisfactory. I only needed something very simple on this trip and my needs were met.

I arrived at the Dunes to find that there are three steps up to the Office which is the entry point to all the rooms. I needed a Handicap ramp which this motel does not have. I contacted "Booking.com" by telephone and with the co-operation of the motel manager, I was able to cancel my reservation. I left and went...

I am giving it a three because I don't want people to expect a fancy hotel at this place. But I really liked it. It was cheap. It was clean. It was comfortable. The people were nice. Is the décor outdated? Yes. Is it on a super busy road? Yes. Is there a lot of concrete? Yet. But it worked...

Clean room, nice upgrades like renovated bathroom, flat screen TV mounted on the wall, friendly staff, some lights weren't functioning, overall really good experience. Key cards would help to put this hotel back into the competitive force of Hillsboro. Tell guests about WIFI before they get to their room.

The staff was very nice and accommodating. Our room was large with two queen beds and very clean. There was no breakfast available but only coffee. However, the room had a microwave and refrigerator. The flat screen was large and there was a large selection of channels to choose from. My only complaint was that the walls were thin and...

The Dunes motel in Hillsboro, Oregon is a hidden gem. I gave the Dunes 4 stars even though it is an economical, rather than a luxury establishment. The Dunes doesn't have a pool or an exercise room, what is does have is very clean, well maintained guest rooms. The love and care that the owners put into keeping the Dunes...

The front desk clerk was pleasant, friendly and very helpful. I had made a booking online and the clerk had everything ready when I arrived. The room was spacious, very clean, had a flat screen TV, fridge, microwave and chest of drawers. The room was exactly as advertised on hotels.com - WiFi, HBO etc.. Plenty towels, clean sheets and pillows....

Stay away completely from this place. Got there at midnight, she didn't have the reservation, I showed confirmation to her on my phone, she takes my phone (I'm locked out at a sliding window she'd only open to take my phone), I ask for a room regardless, and she just keeps looking dumb. I think she found my reservation but...

Filthy, disgusting, ripoff! Room is dirty, old splatter/blotches on bathroom walls, air conditioner filter has dirt and debris caked inside, doesn't look like the room has been cleaned in a long long time. Maybe if the place looked like it was maintained and the room looked like it was regularly cleaned, the review wouldn't be 1 star. The carpets are...
