Wright by the Sea was a great experience for us. As the name says, it is "right by the sea". Each room has an unrestricted view of the ocean. The rooms were what I would call "old-school Florida". By that I mean that the rooms were very comfortable and attractive...lots of beach colors...very attractive. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony,... More

I love Wright By the Sea - it has everything that you need in one of the most magical locations - close to everything and very private - gorgeous beach and sunrises - excellent staff and friendly, friendly and kind service. Wonderful place to stay! I return frequently.

My wife, two kids and I stayed here and found the location to be nice but the accommodations to be very dated. I didn't find being in the room or the hotel (which felt more like a motel) to be that enjoyable. It was nice to have a kitchen, but the room was so dated and old that I would... More

We just returned from spending 4 nights here and, although we had never been there before, and are always hesitant to believe all the reviews, we really enjoyed ourselves. I agree that the rooms are a little dated, but if all the furniture and fixtures were updated, we probably wouldn't be able to afford to stay there! The grounds and... More

My wife and I spent 2 nights here following a week cruise out of Fort Lauderdale (about a 30-40 min drive). We enjoyed it tremendously. Yes it is a "throw back" to another era in hospitality....the 50's or 60's perhaps. The owners clearly take great pride in their property. The rooms are not Marriott "slick" (others might say a bit... More

Unfortunately, we do not agree with most of the reviews. I will say the location and grounds are spectacular. Not the same for our room. We had a studio which was overloaded with dated furniture. Could hardly move around the bed without moving furniture out of the way. No need for a club chair as who would stay in the... More

Wright's is a rare find, indeed! We've been enjoying our stays here for a good many years, and it's always the same...pristine, comfortable, quiet, reliable, attractive and good value. Not many apartment-type hotels are located literally 'on the beach', between the coastal road and the ocean...Wright's is an exception. Walk out of your apartment (on 2-stories only), across the immaculate... More

Stayed for five nights on this wonderful property. The grounds and rooms are immaculate, the pool is heated with more than enough lounges and umbrellas, and it is truly right by the sea. There are cabanas on the sand, and the beach is uncrowded. The staff is so accommodating and friendly. We booked the studio, which in reality was a... More

We have made several trips to Delray. We have stayed at the Marriott. I would choose to stay at Wright by the Sea. Although it is about 1.5 miles from downtown, the oceanfront is awesome. I enjoyed being away from the hustle and bustle. We rented the two bedroom suite on the second floor. The furniture is dated, but the... More
