Wild Dunes Inn
Ranked #11 of 31 Hotels in Ocean City
Reviewed 29 July 2016

We have stayed at other hotels/suites in OCNJ for a few days (usually a half week or so) vacation to the Jersey Shore over the past 4 years. This year, we had a shorter stay than usual, so we looked for a place to get the most bang for our buck for a 2-night stay. The Wild Dunes is located right off the boardwalk at 10th Street and is closer to the beach than their sister property the Impala Inn. The room was clean, big enough for a family of 3 (or 4). For us it was 2 adults and 1 11 year-old who was fine with the pull-out sofa. The rides across the way were fine since they were off by 11:30pm....so no issues with being able to sleep. The two drawbacks: 1 - It's a walk to the pool at the Impala... Never had to deal with that with other places. 2- There was no lee-way about keeping your car there for the rest of the day after you checked out. Cars needed to be off the property as soon as you checked out... So that meant finding a nearby lot to park for the rest of the day, if you want to stay in-town for a bit longer. PS: Late check-out? Don't even bother asking if you're doing this in-season... so, yeah, those 3 things were the only negatives.
Bottom line: Would we stay here again? Possibly. Thanks for reading. Of course this is my opinion, I could be wrong. :)

Room Tip: 3rd Floor has a slightly better ocean view. :)

Thanks so much for your recent visit and review of Wild Dunes. It is true that we run 100% occupancy in the summer so we cannot allow for late check-outs. However, we do let all the guests park as early as 11:00am on their day of arrival and get their beach tags, so they can make a full day of it. We do hope to see you again in the future.

This was my first visit to the wild dunes inn, and it was wonderful. It is newly renovated, clean, stocked with everything you need to cook and serve a meal. The location is prime at a half block to the boardwalk. The only thing that I wish was different was the lack of 2 queen beds. I would definitely stay there again.

Thanks so much for your recent visit and review at the Wild Dunes Inn.

The bedrooms just don't fit 2 queen size beds with the required amount of space between. We hope we get to welcome you back to Ocean City again soon!

Loved staying at the Wild Dunes, and would definitely stay again. The unit was spacious, clean, and very convenient to the boardwalk and beach. Using the adjacent properties' pools is also a bonus, and being so close to one of the boardwalk piers is excellent if you are traveling with children. All in all, this was a great place, had all the amenities listed (stovetop, good sized frig, microwave, coffeemaker, etc.) and the king size bed was a bonus. Would definitely recommend to family and friends!

We have nothing but great things to say about Wild Dunes. Clean, great location, parking...the pools at the impala can be used. We have stayed here three or four times and each time we have been happy. It's great to be so close to rides...and even though you might think it would be noisy, it isn't. Will stay again.

My Mom and I stayed at the Wild Dunes about eight times now. We usually go for the off-season specials such as Mother's Day, Taste of OC, Indian Summer Weekend. I find that the rooms are clean, safe and nice. The curtains and bedspread are a little out-dated, but on the whole, it was a wonderful place to stay. The housekeeping staff is warm and friendly and accommodating. Each time we checked-in we found the staff to be so resourceful and efficient. We are going back at least a few more times this year.
