This place is great. We love taking our family there and enjoying the pool and beach. The beach was just refilled with sand so there is plenty of space to toss a frisbee and football around. If you are looking for a great place for a staycation (we are from Miami) this is it. The rooms all have kitchens and there is a propane bar-b-q available. If you are the noisy and rowdy type then this place is not for you. Jimmy Buffet "Margaritaville" is the theme.

Our first visit & we were pleasantly surprised. As soon as you walk through the breezeway you leave your cares behind. The room was spacious & very clean & comfortable. Everything you could need was supplied; even a daily paper. The grounds included lush landscaping, shuffleboard, basket ball, sitting areas scattered about, a covered area, a grill, and a beautiful pool. Situated right on the beach, there is a short boardwalk w/ a foot & body shower, & chairs w/ sun shades on the beach. The staff was incredibly friendly & attentive; not missing a single detail. I was also happy to see that recycling bins are offered in the rooms, as well on the grounds.
A side note: Something we are in the habit of is taking a bag down to the beach with us, not only to collect our own trash, but also trash left by others or that has blown in from the sea. There are quite a few sea turtle nests there & plastic bags in particular can be quite deadly to marine life. Please take the time while walking the beach to pick up what you can. Thanks!!

Room Tip: I believe that the top floor has better views of the sea as well as the grounds.

This was our 2nd visit to Wright by the Sea and we are planning our 3rd! It is the perfect getaway. The staff is great and you are treated like family, not a guest. The linens are better than a 5 star hotel and the beds are so comfy. The hotel is clean and you feel right at home. It is a quiet and tranquil place with a fantastic view, but right down the road there is so much to do, lots of nightlife. The hotel gave us a name of a place to rent bikes for a week, they were delivered and we rode everyday and go to take in the sites. A great place for a family to reunite. If you are looking for a family vacation or to just get away with some friends this is the place. Very private. The best thing about this place is not only is the staff friendly, but the hotel brings in very friendly and family oriented guests. So you feel very comfortable. We have meant friends for life there and we are now planning our trip for next year. The view is the best and you are only steps away from a private beach. It's a little piece of paradise!!!

It's it's like stepping back in time 40 years maybe 50 years ago when families were together in outside activities the wind blew through your children's hair... you noticed they were getting older...times were easy, times were wonderful...you can live it again at Wright by the Sea. Leave your electronic devices at home and rediscover outside activities with your children, it's like a revival for the family.

This hotel is situated right on the Atlantic Ocean. It is a small, two-story with shared balcony. It is extraordinarily clean and has everything you could possibly want - activities include ping pong, basketball, shuffleboard, and bean bag toss. The shared bbq area is awesome, a great gas grill, refrigerator, radio and speakers under the cabana and tables galore for if you have a large gathering. The beds are so comfortable, the sheets and towels are softest of any hotel we've ever stayed at, including 4 and 5 star hotels, and they give you 3 pillows for each person - one soft, one medium and one firm - everyone gets that perfect pillow! The staff is incredibly nice, and the location is just a mile and half from Atlantic Street, so you have little traffic, it's quiet, but if you want to be in the action, it's less than 5 minutes away. We would definitely stay here again!!

Just love Wright-by the sea. It reminds me of the Mom & Pop motels that use to be along Ft. Lauderdale Beach before they tore them down and replaced with high rises. Was able to spend just 3 days of our week long trip here but it was the most enjoyable part of the trip. Loved everthing about it staff, location, beach, pool. We look foward to spending more vacations here.
