We usually stay at the Blockade Runner Hotel, but it was sold out. Ended up loving the Summer Sands. Had a harbor front room with a beautiful view. Nice and large covered balcony, which was perfect for the rainy days. Really liked have a separate bedroom from the living space. Great kitchenette, and loved the Keurig. This will be our... More

So glad you found us and that we meet or exceeded your expectations. We do feel that our suites offer that little extra room needed for couples or small families. The Keurig coffee machines were added last year and they have been a big success; however we do have guests that prefer to make that pot of coffee every morning... More

Some friends ensconced me in suite 103 for a birthday weekend. We loved the location with the short walk to the beach, great pool which is protected if it is windy, excellent restaurants nearby and a kitchen for our snacks and breakfasts. The unit was comfortable, clean, and well appointed. I was surprised by another review criticizing the bed. I... More

Happy belated birthday. We are so pleased that your friends chose to bring you here to Summer Sands for that special weekend. We feel that we are just footsteps away from everything that makes a great beach vacation. The restaurants and shops are within a stones throw from our parking lot and the beach is a short walk as well.... More

We had a girls reunion at Wrightsville beach and booked several rooms at the Summer Sands. For the value, you couldn't get a better location. Right across from the beach and a stones throw from great restaurants, a grocery store (for the nights we cooked in) and an ice cream shop! I've stayed at most of the hotels on WB... More

We have stayed at the Summer Sands for the past 30 years periodically and this is the first time I must say that we were disappointed. The accommodations for those bringing their pets are filthy and old, at least Room 103. The carpeting is in bad shape, tile would be better and the mattress and pillows need replacing! The bathroom... More

We are pleased to be the only Wrightsville Beach hotel that offers a limited number of dog friendly rooms. The decision to have only first floor rooms available for those guests and their dogs is for both convenience to the dog and other guests. We have made great strides in the last three years in moving through different room upgrades... More

The Summer Sands Hotel is within easy walking distance of the ocean and also offers a clean and pleasant fresh-water swimming pool. The condo units are really starting to show their age and could stand new carpets, paint, bathrooms, etc. The nightly cost is pretty substantial for a rather mediocre facility. But again, if you are visiting Wrightsville Beach to... More

Clifton; Summer Sands did celebrate their 30th birthday this year. The last three years have seen many room upgrades with more in the coming off season. Currently about half of the hotel has had a bathroom makeover with new tub surrounds. The project is involved and we work around guests during the winter, so by next summer they should all... More

The place is older but is kept in decent shape. Location is awesome. The two bed suite is spacious. We were on the 3rd floor and it included free wifi, full kitchen, balcony (with rockers), and we even had an ocean view.The price is really tough to beat. My son and I stay here during our annual guys beach weekend... More

Thank you Michael. We try to provide an excellent value for a beach vacation. We appreciate your business when we know there are several other options in Wrightsville Beach. Maybe we can convince your wife to join you and your son. That is unless you want to make it a place for "the boys" to hang out. See you soon. More

Summer Sands is located at the edge of Wrightsville Beach's "downtown", which makes everything walkable. It has rooms that face either the sound or (kind of) the ocean. The rooms that have an ocean view are seeing the water through the buildings across the street and also have to deal with the noise from the pool below. The ocean itself... More

My wife and I, along with our one month old baby and dog stayed here for three nights. The staff is very friendly and the rooms have a good layout.

Thank you for visiting us at Summer Sands. We do take pride in our staff and always put guest comfort and room cleanliness as our number one priority.

When family from Ohio wanted to visit us near Raleigh & the beach, we recommended Summer Sands. We found it last year as a close off-season getaway that would allow dogs.
